Just my opinion

I’ve always pushed exercises on you folks. One thing I’ve never presented is that it’s my opinion that if you exercise to the point of creating a sweat you will also psychologically feel better. You won’t dwell on your situation.

I think a lot of people would agree about exercise bringing all kinds of good.

In pre-covid days, I used to swim. I like to walk, but I haven’t done much recently (must get back at it now that the weather’s good).

What do you do to keep your body moving?

Good for you. Any exercise that increases your heart rate is a good thing. My gym is closed temporarily I hope but I do live in an apartment house. My last superintendent was also a black belt in karate and he used to teach it in my building. He left a treadmill downstairs and I’m able to climb on it and workout. I realize not all of us can do that but there are aerobic exercises that can be done while sitting. Just Google it. Comes to mind: while sitting hold your arms straight out to the side. Then turn your arms in circles- 50 times in each direction.
