Exercise tops my list for aging well and dealing with Parkinson’s. For me, the most important health-related development this year was realizing that I could take advantage of the hour between meds and breakfast to get out and walk. Here’s why it’s has been a great discovery:
- All too often in DC’s summer heat and humidity, by the time I’ve had my breakfast and coffee, the thought of getting out and exercising has lost its appeal. The mercury will climb into the 90s today, but at 7am… no problem!
- It’s a treat to complete this important to-do item first thing each day. Exercise? Check!
- I’ve lived in the DC Palisades for 55 years. Only now, by walking, am I really getting to know this terrific neighborhood.
