You rarely have to look very far these days to find an example of somebody tearing down today’s kids for some perceived failing they have compared to kids in “our” day. Those of us who were paying attention when we were kids might be familiar with the concept - because when we were kids, we used to hear that we had those same failings, compared with kids of the previous generation. And the chain continues for as long as you’re prepared to go back; rest assured that your own grandparents were once the subject of some older people’s rants about “the children of today”. Maybe it’s time to break that chain, because being a kid is hard - and if you have doubts over that, let’s look at a few examples of how.
So many people adopt the classic mentality of buying a gym membership that they never use or assuming that “dieting” means starving yourself until you’ve lost weight and then resuming your old diet as normal. Being truly healthy isn’t about achieving quick results; it’s about creating a lifestyle that you’ll be able to maintain on a permanent basis. Sometimes, that does mean you’ll only see results gradually but you’ll be able to maintain those good results forever if you stick to your healthy routine.
If you have felt the pressing need to try something new, then trying an outside-the-box fitness idea might be just what you need. Say goodbye to the gym, the weights, and the same old pilates stretches, and embrace something truly different that still provides a route to reaching your fitness goals.
