Spring Time Warriors...
We all know the expression "weekend warriors," this refers to all the people that aren't super active generally speaking but on the weekends play three rounds of golf, work in the garden for hours, play tennis for 8 sets, etc. Than Sunday evening rolls around and they can't walk, they can't talk, and they are in pain from something they strained. We all know that is silly to do, but we all do it because we are all silly human beings.
"Spring time warriors "really refer to the same thing. We have been sedentary, most of us, during the crazy winter months and now that the weather is slowing starting to be normal, we are raring to go! So, we start off with too much. We don't slowly ease into it. Almost like New Year resolutions- it really does feel like newness which is what Spring time really is.
I implore all of you when it comes to starting up again whether its exercising, walking, outdoor cleanup, planting, sports, etc, to TAKE IT SLOW. Don't overdue it in the beginning. I have seen too many people over all these years with their zeal to get out and enjoy the non frigid weather and they do too much too quick.
Please keep this in mind. Enjoy the last few weeks of this "Polar Vortex Winter." Be safe out their.
Any questions don't hesitate to call the office.
Yours in good health,
