Are you a winter hibernator?
I am – and it is not a good thing for our bodies.
[Maybe bears can do it –I can’t.]
In the winter, I tend to just take walks and do some stretching to keep my hamstrings flexible – but otherwise I kind of become someone who sits too much – and as we know, that is not good for a body.
As we get older, it seems we need to keep all parts in flexible working order and to do that, we cannot hibernate!
I re-learned this recently when I started back into doing yoga!
I had lost a real lot of my flexibility – and could not easily [or even] do much of what was so easy before I hibernated!!
The obvious moral of the story is that we all need to do a variety of exercising to stay flexible – and as we age, it seems we cannot take off for a long period of time without it having a major impact.
Comments? Thoughts? Thank you…..
Just made myself get up and go for a walk to fight off the end of winter blues and sore muscles from yesterday’s gardening. You are so right about the need to move it or lose it!
thank you for the comment – and I am glad to know I am not alone in my hibernating 🙂
keep on walking – but do NOT forget the stretching
