Get Physicals, Get Fit!

Summer starts this weekend!  It's time to get out.  Play ball, ride a bike, paddle a boat, go for a walk.  There are so many good reasons to get fit and stay fit.  Here are just a few.  Exercise:
* Improves mental function
* Lowers stress
* Raises energy levels
* Boosts immune system function
* Lowers disease risk--including high blood pressure and cholesterol, diabetes and stroke
* Improves strength, flexibility, endurance and resistance to pain
* Builds social relationships--especially when you work out as part of a team
Don't forget to schedule well child visits, and get your sports and camp forms filled out.  Everybody should exercise every day, especially our kids.
