Exercise or Quilt? Open Line Friday

Walking, PhotographyGood Morning, Quilters!

For several months, I’ve been thinking of writing about this weighty topic…the dilemma we all face every time we have a few spare minutes…Exercise or Quilt?  Quilt or Exercise?

So a few weeks ago, when several of you had a conversation about health and exercise in the comment section, my percolating plan came to a full boil.

For nearly twenty years, I worked as a physical therapist and saw first hand the effects of a sedentary lifestyle.

While there’s a lot of evidence that quilters (and others with hobbies) are generally happier...

We want to live long enough and be healthy enough to finish all of our UFOs!

The best way to do that is to push away from our computers and our sewing machines and Move More!

Next week, we’ll start an initiative to help each other maintain a reasonable quilt/exercise balance.  There will be challenges, contests (with prizes-of course) and more.

For now, I would love to hear your thoughts…

Do YOU spend too much time sitting (quilting, blogging, photo-processing, like me?)

Are YOU up for a new challenge?

Are YOU ready to move more?

And of course, every social media campaign needs a “hashtag”.  Let’s brainstorm ideas…I’d LOVE more suggestions!

Walking, PhotographyOne more thing…over the weekend, think about YOUR personal fitness goals and how you could move just a little more

I’m really excited and I hope YOU will join me!
