Get culture and exercise all at the same time...

Sunday, March 24, 2013

Need to stand and walk more? If you live near a museum, go on an exhibit tour and peruse a few galleries. Both days this weekend I did just that and I am physically and spiritually the better for doing it.

Physically, I logged many, many, many steps--especially because I challenged myself not to sit down until the 1.5 hour tour was over both days

Spiritually, the art made my heart sing. This improved my mood, and inspired me to do even more physical activity than I would otherwise would have.

Exercise is GREAT but so too is extra activity--whatever that activity is.

What activities do you do that get you moving and make your heart sing all at the same time?

    I love museums! Our city offers walking tours of the city during the spring/summer months.

Glad you had a great weekend! emoticon

    I also like walking in museums. Even when the exhibits are the same, there's always something wonderful that I never noticed. The zoo is my favorite. I walk fast while watching the animals watch me. Sometimes a polar bear races with me! Walking in my neighborhood often bores me. I like driving a short distance to different neighborhoods, nearby towns and parks.
