I just learned something new- by rubbing your feet together- Grounds You! So, if you have loads of stress, bombardsment of energy good or bad, you can ground yourself. You can also do it with your hands, too, rubbing them together.

I like to do a1/2 hour of Qigong in the morning, gets Qi into the whole body and You feel Energized. Later, in the day, I like to walk in my garden talking to the plants and birds. Trees give off so much energy, so stand under them and listen.

Find a friend to walk with and get out there moving is the key to a long productive life.

I turn on my DVR and find Classical Stretch by Essentrics every morning (I record it on PBS, but you can also find the DVD's at the library or buy them, see some of them on YouTube, or stream them online). Stairs instead of elevator, park a little farther out in the parking lot, get up and move every hour...

I always park as far away as possible when I shop. All those steps add up. Also, when I'm in the store, I try to walk all the way around the store. In addition to the exercise, sometimes I find great deals on items because I'm going to parts of the store I don't usually shop. I walk my dog every day. If it's raining, I walk in the house. Not as much fun, but if you count the steps, it goes by pretty quick.

I walk 7 days a week.  I am up early during the week to get my walk in before I go to work, about 2 to 2.5 miles.  On Saturday and Sunday I stretch the walk out to be a little longer, closer to 3.5 miles.  Three days a week I add standing push-ups to my walk.  I do three sets each of wide grip and narrow grip.  For the standing push-up I find an railing or other solid, immovable object at about waist height.  I take a step back and do push-ups until I can't anymore.  I started doing them when I was having some shoulder pain.  Since I've been doing them I have much better range of motion in my shoulder and I feel stronger.
