Fitness. Another exceptionally important but very time consuming thing. I’m going to let you in on a little secret: I am ridiculously clumsy. Me just walking down the sidewalk is an immense safety hazard, and as a result, I have never been able to play sports. I have tried, but the second a ball comes in contact with my hands, some bone in some non-related part of my body breaks. I know, it’s crazy, but unfortunately true. So, I’ve had to improvise when it comes to my physical health. Some kids don’t even have to think about it because they have crazy long practices for softball or basketball, but I have had to work in a fitness routine into my schedule because it’s important. 60 minutes of exercise is recommended everyday for best cardiovascular and muscle health, but that’s really hard for non-athletes with packed schedules. However, I still manage to keep really healthy with workouts as short as 5 minutes. My workouts range from 20 minute butt blasters, to 5 minute ab exercises, to simply running. I try to change it up every other day so my body doesn’t get too used to one thing, but my point is, it is possible to stay fit without spending an exorbitant amount of time. Each person is different, so on this blog you can expect to find a wide array of different types of easy, mostly at-home workouts that can easily be worked into the astoundingly busy schedule of a student.
