Exercise is important in our everyday lives. There are gyms around the world to help people remain fit. A number of gyms have gone out of business. I remember in Ireland when Curves opened and closed. At that time I went to the Image gym in Swords, Ireland. It was while I was walking to the gym one day that I was inspired to write my children’s books. Over time people who didn’t believe they should exercise learned the consequences of being a couch potato. I knew a man many years ago whose son was the physician to Hugh Hefner. When his father retired, he immediately started him on a swimming and walking program. He owned a lovely condo in Encino that was three stories and it had a very large pool. He was sixty-five when he retired and died at ninety-five and as he liked to say one half. Just daily walking is a good start to help a person get into shape. Many people who live in climates with adverse weather conditions walk at the mall. Sometimes they ask a friend or join a group to walk and socialize. When we were all younger we played outside and ran, climbed trees, jumped rope, played ball, rode bikes, and of course, walked almost everywhere. With technology today, many children are either on a tablet, computer or watching TV. There are sports in the schools, dance classes, martial arts, and other activities for children which is important for their good health. With so many illnesses spreading across the globe, sunshine and fresh air is very important. In the Good Gus series there were chores, plus many activities which are in my books.
