How to turn Racking into Fun exercise
By getting your kitty to participate 🙂 One morning I was doing some exercises. It went well until I jumped and landed on acorn. Ouch I thought. No more exercising in my yard.
Not ofcourse not! Time to rake! Raking is a tedious but worthwhile task. Ive been experimenting with involving my cat in my exercise routine, so here came the idea: attach a toy I already made to the rake. Having my kitty prance around turned this chore into a fun Fun exercise!
Fun in your hands
Raking is physical but when you are also trying to customize your moves for your the entertainment of your little kitty it becomes a brain exercise! Who doesnt love those?? It turned into a little dance off between my skill at shaking it and his prowess at grasping the other end. I love activities that turn into fun exercise.
I found a few Secret ingredients to a fun exercise.
First it has to challenge you physically. Otherwise your body will be like eeh. Lets take a nap instead..
Second, got to challenge your mind. This one ties into the first because you cant seriously challenge, in terms of progress, unless your mind is also engaged. Ofcourse your mind probably has ADD and wont engage fully for long unless its being challenged.
Third, hold on what is it? It was a good tip…
Well, maybe it was the fact that fun exercise means variety. Change it up not only from time to time but also during your routine. Keep your mind and body guessing. If you add even one new element or tweak one you will get a lot of satisfaction simply being proud of your self. Now get out your inner pet and play!
