Aging and sitting around.

The NYT reports today that children are exercising less as they age. The drop is from an average of 3 hours a day exercising to around half an hour a day, in the period from age 9 to 15. I certainly found that I spent much less time outdoors once I discovered the joys of the Internet...

But on the other end of the spectrum, you'll want to reverse this and exercise more to possibly slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease. It's no secret that our physical condition affects our mental state.
Okay, that's all to see here for today - get movin'!
