Healthy Living

Posted on Tuesday, September 15th, 2009 at 1:56 pm by Kathy Filo

Well, as Kerry mentioned a week or so ago, it officially feels like Fall now with it being September and the start of school. It is also the time when we consider making positive changes to our daily routine, whether this is getting more organized at home, or making a more conscious effort to live a more healthy, active lifestyle.

I received the Loyalist College Continuing Education magazine in the mail, and this is what got me thinking. Then I heard several radio advertisements from various physical fitness centres in the area for Fall class registration. Programs ranging from from yoga and pilates to aerobics are offered and they all start the beginning of September.

I decided to be brave and make a positive change myself! I started a spinning/strength training class at Mindful Movements which runs every Tuesday at 5:30 for the next 15 weeks! My first class was this past Tuesday and let me tell you – while I have been a little sore the past couple of days – I feel great already! It will be challenging most definitely, but I will endeavour to be conscientious and not miss a single class. Wish me luck!

If you are looking for ways to live a more healthy active lifestyle, the Hastings & Prince Edward Counties Health Unit website is an excellent source on many topics ranging from a healthy diet and physical activity to simple steps that you can take each day for positive change.

Last fall, we were asked by the health unit to help them with a campaign encouraging healthy living. Take a look at the posters I designed, below. Thanks to the Hastings & Prince Edward Counties Health Unit for allowing us to share them!

I wish you all healthy living!
