Happy Sunday folks!
A relaxing end to a relaxing weekend. But I have to say that in 12 hours when the first exam starts, that will all change. It's craziness.
Today we finished the day in a most wonderful way - Frisbee! After a day of studying for history, we went outside and played. And even thought I knew I had to study, sometimes we have to force ourselves to go outside and enjoy the nice weather. Because in a few months we can't. You see, it gets to be in the 100s by next month or the month after that, and you can't go outside in such ridiculous weather. We can barely go to the end of the driveway to get the mail before we start sweating. You can only walk outside to the car to drive to the pool and walk outside from the pool to the car. Those are the options.
So we made sure that we got out before the sun released its wrath for about 5 months. And we had a fabulous time. Sweating was never so much fun.
I think too many people think that getting active has to be a chore. That's when it becomes not-fun. But when you play while you are active, it becomes much more fun. That's why kids are usually so fit, because they love to run around. They don't go to the gym and lift weights, but they get a lot of exercise - more than the average American.
And happiness is related to exercise. It helps improve not only your physical health, but your mental health - it is a great way to relieve stress and remedy depression.
If you don't believe me, just go and try it for yourself. Trust me, it works.
