Remember when exercise used to be called "playing?"
This video was sent to me by a Northwest Public Radio listener. At the end of this video is the saying,"Fun can obviously change behavior for the better." Hello? Didn't we all know this as children? Exercise, that thing that we need to schedule, get up early for, change clothes for, etc; was what we naturally did as children. It was called playing!
"Can _________ come out to play?" Those classic words that we all grew up with and that were generally followed by riding bikes, rollerskating, tree climbing or games of kick ball, tag or hide and seek. Playing was exercising.
