What Is Your Favorite Motivator?

Saturday, February 09, 2013

What's the best way to motivate yourself to be physically active after age 40?

a. Join a gym
b. Adopt a dog
c. Cut out a photo of first lady Michell Obama's biceps
d. Hire a personal trainer

Answer: b. In a recent Canadian study of people up to age 80, dog owners were found to walk about 300 minutes per week, almost twice as many as those without a canine. The dog owners were also significantly more likely to follow through on an "intention" to walk, because who could say no to that face?

I have 2 of those faces and find this to be true. emoticon emoticon
