Wife came up with this great idea – I’d like to claim it but that wouldn’t be right.
This isn’t for your kid, it’s for you. Three things that babies do that if you did them as an adult, you’d become quite fit indeed.
1: Lie on the ground and put your feet in the air.
Gaze at them, grab them and wave them around, pull your socks on and off, you can even occasionally put them in your mouth. Try it, it’s actually quite difficult to do for long periods of time.
2: Cry really loudly for at least an hour a day.
This is a great aerobic workout and does wonders for stress relief.
3: Run everywhere.
Toddlers do it. They have to because they have short legs compared to big people. Small ones in particular ‘stomp’ everywhere. Often in gumboots. If you run everywhere in gumboots as an adult, you’ll be running a marathon before you know it.
