Summer Road Trips are hard on the Body!

From late July to mid August, I took two road trips. The first one was in late July from Boston to Buffalo – Buffalo to Toronto and back home. The second occurred in mid August, in which I drove from Dallas to Chicago. While road trips are a great way to be in good company and to see our beautiful country, sitting in a car for long periods of time leaves much to be desired.

My hips became so tight from all of the sitting. I am still feeling some tightness despite my stretching and aiming to reach 10,000 daily steps. Being sedentary came to mind this summer. What is it like to sit most of the day, in a car or an office? Chronic sitting takes its toll on you – physically and mentally! Because your body and mind need nourishment, they need you to move! For me being sedentary is not a choice or an option – being active is the only way that I can imagine my living my life!
