Are you functionally fit? Can you handle everyday tasks like carrying in the groceries without pain? If not, here’s what you can do about it.
Investing money for your future is important — and so is investing in your health and happiness. Many people would agree that health is the greatest wealth and that it’s not something to take for granted. While your health is not something over which you have complete control, happily, many of the choices you make — to eat well, to be active and to manage your stress, for example — can go a long way towards helping you stay healthy.
“Functional fitness” is a bit of a buzzword. Simply put, it means being in shape to handle the tasks of everyday living with ease and without pain. We’ve all known someone who exercises regularly but who has wound up stiff, sore or injured after washing the windows or carrying in a heavy bag of groceries. It’s happened to me and it’s probably happened to you, too!
