Couch Potatoes Can't Compete!

Aug 17, 2007
Do you find yourself on the couch watching television shows, cable TV, sporting events, or a DVD Movie almost every night of the week? The bad news is a lot of people are couch potatoes. Many people spend to much time watching movies or sporting events on their television every night when they could be doing other things to CREATE A BETTER LIFESTYLE.

According to a federal survey, couch potatoes do not get enough exercise. It is important to get some type of aerobic exercise such as walking, biking or jogging. Moderate exercise is usually enough for overall health. Consistent exercise increases red blood cell counts, helps control weight, strengthens bones and muscles and increases lipoproteins or good cholesterol in your body. Exercise can increase your effectiveness in everything you do. Taking a long walk can help relieve the stress of a busy day. Exercise each day and begin to feel better with a healthier body.

Just about anyone with children knows that the easiest way to entertain kids these days is through a TV set. Technology has produced video games and kids enjoy playing these games. Unfortunately, the kids playing these games do not get the proper exercise they need. There is an increase of obesity in children and not getting enough exercise can contribute to this. Get your kids outside away from the TV set and let them play games, shoot baskets, ride bikes or take them on a walk to the park with you.

If you find yourself clinging to a couch potato lifestyle, you can change your habits and increase your productivity and do the things you want to in life. Don't turn on the television. Instead, try educating yourself by reading and researching new ideas, projects, interests or a money making idea. Increasing your productivity and your knowledge will make you feel better about yourself.

You can create a better life for both yourself and others by giving up the couch potato lifestyle. You may want to start up your own home business or start working on the new invention you have thought about for years. Get your kids involved with their own projects or interests instead of playing the video games all the time. Get them to go out and get some exercise. Get your kids to start thinking on their own. Let them have ideas. Maybe some day they will be the ones programming, designing or building these games they are playing. Maybe some day you will have that profitable home based business or new invention that you have dreamed of having.

Get off the couch and stop being a couch potato. Start creating a better life for yourself today!
