Back it up and get active

My third word that I have chosen to live by in 2013 is active; however, sadly, I have not been living up to my resolution. Yet. This week, my Music Sunday choice at Experience Optimism is supposed to help me change all that.

I can't think of a song that I've heard in a long time that encourages movement more than "Back it Up" by Caro Emerald. It inspires me to get active. I hope that it does the same for you for one of the greatest and easiest ways to promote  health and well-being is to move.

The The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommends 30 minutes of physical activity a day for adults, 60 minutes for children, at least five days a week. According to their website, it shouldn't be considered a daunting task. Walking and stretching are some simple solutions. Find out more here. 

Insurance providers Blue Cross Blue Shield have encouraged schools to help children be more active with "Get Active, Get Fit."

First Lady Michelle Obama endorses the "Let's Move" program for fitness.

Now I need to take my own advice, pick one and get active!
