You’ve Got To Move It

“Laughter is inner jogging.” ─ Norman Cousins

You’ve got to move it, move it! You’ve got to move it, move it! Be physically fit, physically fit!

The fight against childhood obesity is on with Michelle Obama behind it. Gym teachers and parents unite! Make those kids move! Improve childhood nutrition and physical activity now. Move it! Move it!

When my daughter was in grade school, her gym teacher was adamant about physical exercise. There was no sitting around. It was all about moving and being physically fit. Running, jumping, rollerblading, sledding. Whatever it took to keep the kids active, she had them do it. But I must admit I was surprised when my daughter, who was in kindergarten at the time, burst through the kitchen door yelling, “Our gym teacher made us run around heaven!”

Now that was a feat, even for her gym teacher! After a bit of questioning, I found out they did laps around the cemetery that was adjacent to the school.

When the spirit moves you, say, “I Like to Move It” and do it!

    Too much technology these days! Not enough exercise. The books looks great.
