That’s a terrific reason, because teaching others is one of the best possible ways to learn. Or in this case, to remind ourselves.

    I seem to remember a slogan from the ’60’s: Dance ’til you die. I’m sure it meant well, but maybe we could stop just short.

    Excellent tip. I find that it doesn’t take long to ‘lock up’ if I’m not doing this exact thing, moving.

      Thanks for reminding us of the consequences. I find that if I “rest” too long I get sleepy. Ridiculous but true.

  6. I work out at the gym several times a week. I listen to audio books as I exercise, and it keeps me from getting bored. I also have a rule for myself – no listening to audio books anywhere else! This motivates me to work out – if I want to know what happens next in the book, I need to head for the gym. 😉
