If you're not in the parade, you watch the parade ,That's life." Mike Ditka
Ever watch sports and say to your self that is way cool wish I could do that? Well why not? You may never be a Nolan Ryan , or a Deion Sanders, but you could be you are participating and that is more fun than sitting around.
Maybe you are too shy or don't have the time or money to join a team . It's okay you can still participate . I don't play football but enjoy doing high knees, or tires , which are football moves. I sometimes practice pitching without a ball or glove. And you can shoot and pass a basketball without a basketball or net.
It's winter here get out your sleds or ice skates and give it a go . Hit the trail with some snowshoes or just regular boots walking in snow burns more calories and uses different muscles and is good for balance.
In the spring and fall there is hiking and biking , and running to name a few.
In the summer which I sure hope gets here quick move around in the pool.
You don't need to be a pro athlete to get in or try the game of sports. You just have to have a little determination and willingness to have fun.
Whatever your limitations , or your injuries there is some kind of movement you can do , whether it is chair exercises , or tai chi or laughter yoga , or something else.
Don't just watch the parade jump right in and join. I will be the clown smiling and waving at you in the middle . Look for me I will have my eyes out looking for you. Hugs , love and healthy living.
