Were you inspired hearing the stories of diabetic athletes on Diabetes Doesn’t Slow Me Down? Want to start an athletic adventure of your own? Here’s TCOYD’s resident fitness expert Michelle Day with a tip to keep your diabetes in check and your body fit.
Take advantage of the great outdoors. Exercising outdoors is associated with greater feelings of revitalization, increased energy, greater enjoyment and a more likelihood of repeating the activity at a later date. Pedal a bike, hike up a trail or make a splash in the ocean or lake. Breathe in the fresh air and take in the great scenery. You’ll have so much fun that it won’t even feel like exercise.
