I encourage what I call “Flossie Fit-ness” (Fitness the Old Fashion way). Exercise is very important to your health. I believe that fitness is less about what you do in the gym for 60 minutes, and more about what you do all day, every day. Most of our grandparents and great-grandparents didn’t suffer from the 80% of preventable diseases that we suffer from today. Maybe it is because they didn’t pay people to mow their lawns, clean their houses, or wash their cars, or pick up their push mower (WWGFD).
Try Flossie Fitness! Clean your own house. Mop your own floor. Vacuum your own carpets. Move your own furniture. Mow your own lawn. Pull your own weeds. Wash your own car. Walk your own dog. Garden. Cook your own food. Walk, Run, Climb, Row, and Lift heavy things. And if it helps you, just ask yourself, What would Grandma Flossie do?
