Incorporating movement into our daily lives
We stay mentally, emotionally and physically healthy when we learn to make daily activity part of our life. Crook County On The Move strives to make this easy and fun, so join our adventure!
Many of our activites below have been put on hold to keep you safe.
In the meantime, we’ve created an Activity Bingo game for you to keep you active during your stays at home. Feel free to download and share – PDF or Photo (.jpg). Stay safe, stay healthy and share your fun on facebook on instagram! Let us know if you have ideas for another card by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s find ways to exercise! When we exercise we reduce our risk of obesity, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and many other chronic ailments. It will improve brain function and act as a shield from depression. It helps protect us from ADHD, Alzheimer’s and various other cognitive challenges. We think more clearly and even improve the very structure of our brain.
Don’t have time? 30 minutes a day is all it takes. Even 10-15 minutes a day will make us feel better, so join us in committing to Keep Moving a little each day.
Just a simple brisk walk everyday can help us live a healthier life. Enjoy the routes on the Prineville walking map found on our Walk Everyday page. What if we walk instead of drive to the store or to a friend’s house? Take the dog for a walk – exercise is good for him too! Park in the back of the parking lot instead of that space right up front. Walk the kids to school – find time for great conversations on the way! Ask a co-worker to walk during lunch. Put down the cell phones, turn off the TV to spend quality time with our spouses on an evening walk. Be creative. Find ways to reconnect, release the day’s stress, or discover a bit of peace and quiet during an otherwise hectic day. Check out our Walk Everyday page for great daily walking opportunities in Crook County.
Be patient with yourself. As you realize the benefits, you will find that elusive 30 minutes in your day and the excuses will fade away.
It’s not about perfect. It’s about effort.
And when you bring that effort every single day, that’s where transformation happens.
That’s how change occurs. – Jillian Michaels
