No Couch Potatoes Here!
During the long, chilly winter months, it's tempting to spend all day watching TV. To keep healthy, I try to exercise at least 30 minutes every day. Exercising regularly helps keep your heart and your muscles strong. Plus, it's a lot more fun than watching reruns of the same old shows. Did you know that different exercises have different benefits? For example, activities like gymnastics will make your muscles more flexible, and riding a bike will help to build strong muscles.
One fun way to exercise is to play active video games that get you dancing, but if you don't have one of these games, just boogie to your favorite CD. Playing indoor games with siblings or friends is another fun way to get exercise. If you want to learn a fun new way to exercise such as yoga or karate, try taking a class to learn the basics.
