Twenty-three and a half hours. . .

This is a very good video of a doctor explaining what one thing we can do to maintain better health. It is soooo much simpler than we think!!
So it turns out that the relatively simple act of exercising for 30 minutes a day does all sorts of wonderful things for our health. When I think about my own experience, it is certainly true that I feel better when I'm getting regular exercise, even if it is just thirty minutes of Wii steps while I'm watching the morning news.
Why then, is it so hard sometimes to motivate myself to simply do it?? I don't have an answer for that, but I do know that it works better for me if I arrange my schedule to roll out of bed and get that exercise in right away--before coffee, before doing the dishes from the night before, before "straightening up" the living room, etc. etc. If I allow myself to be distracted by the other 23 1/2 hours worth of work and activity in the day, I'm doomed to lose that 1/2 hour.
