Today I’m introducing a new occasional series entitled Do This Now! The idea is to present simple actions to lead you to a healthier lifestyle. Read This Now!
Do This Now! Sign up for a yoga class.
Doing yoga doesn’t necessarily make you thin. But it keeps you limber as the sands of time push your aging muscles toward rigidity. Don’t underestimate the benefit of being able to touch your toes. Just ask professional athletes.
Yoga is also an activity you can do as long as your upright. If you’re still pushing 2oolbs off your chest in your 6th decade you may be doing more harm than good. But it’s in these later years when yoga keeps your body ready for the activities you enjoy.
Yoga also helps me reduce stress, play better golf, sleep sounder, and be more flexible for other, ahem, bedroom activities. Not bad for an exercise that has lasted thousands of years.
Try yoga this week. Most studios will give you a complimentary first free class. Go here to find a class near you. Do It Now!
