How to Start an Early Morning Exercise Routine

How to Start an Early Morning Exercise Routine Tagged with:

Ask yourself, why should you exercise?

Not for the date that cast you off, not for the taunts of relatives that you want to thrust off, and not for the ‘fat shaming’ accuses you want to get rid of, just to fall in love with your body and become a person you will always be proud of.

Spring Into Action

Spring Into Action Tagged with:

Since the spring season is in full swing, I feel so much better with my daily schedule and activities. I feel like I have been reborn to some degree because my activities throughout the week are all set in stone. I feel so driven because my activities, exercises, practices, and work are all set up on a calendar in which I am all prepared for each day. I basically have my fall season planned out for each day. This is great for me considering I just spent the summer free lancing it. I can then focus on just bringing a fun-filled attitude for when it’s time to exercise.

How You Can Encourage Your Child To Be Active

How You Can Encourage Your Child To Be Active Tagged with:

Just recently, I noticed kids are not into games that actually make them go out and spread a leg or run or do something that can count as physical activity. Ask any parent about what games do their kids love to play and you’ll get a list of PlayStation games or the games they download on their phones. Only a slight percentage of children these days, are actually a part of something which can be counted as physical activity. Although being physically active is essential for children in order to stimulate their growth in a healthy manner.

10 After School Activities for Students with Learning Difficulties Tagged with:

Make no mistake – students with learning disabilities may be smarter, a lot smarter, than their peers. Does Einstein ring a bell? This theoretical physicist and arguably the smartest man who ever lived was dyslexic. So were Thomas Edison and Leonardo da Vinci before him.

2016 Global School Play Day

2016 Global School Play Day Tagged with:

The hassles and obligations of being an adult often make me wish that I was still a child growing up in my beautiful Puerto Rico. A wise educator once said:  “It is not that men quit playing because they grow old but men grow old because they quit playing.” WOW – there is so much truth to that statement. It is not a coincidence that my favorite memories bring me back to a rural neighborhood of Puerto Rico: the streets, the school yard, and a nearby rundown basketball court with concrete floors, no nets, and rusty metal boards. In these places, I learned to play, to be active, to socialize, and to become a pretty good athlete. I like to tell people that I was a pretty good athlete since there is no way to refute my argument unless you do some extensive research. Let’s face it – nobody has time for that so just take my word for it.

The Ingredients that Make a Difference in Your Recovery Protein

The Ingredients that Make a Difference in Your Recovery Protein Tagged with:

What you do just after a rigorous workout may be nearly as important as the workout itself. During a particularly strenuous workout you will have lost considerable water, burned up a large quantity of stored glycogen and broken down red blood cells and muscle tissue. You may feel great that you have accomplished your daily goal and exhilarated by the effort, but your body needs immediate attention.
