“We all know that exercise is good for us, but why does it have to be so much like work?” asks Joan Griffin, author of Women at Play: A Girl’s Guide to Everyday Outdoor Exercise to Look Good, Feel Good, Sleep Well and be Happy.
It’s just the sort of book to put a little spring in your step (pun intended).
Behind its pretty cover, Women at Play promises to “guide you through a variety of outdoor activities, enjoyed locally, in season, in moderation and for fun. No gimmicks, no gadgets, no anything-ometers required.”
Joan Griffin, a Boston trial attorney by trade, has made playing a priority in her own life as a means of staying fit and healthy. Her career doesn’t offer much room (physically or figuratively) to invigorate her muscles and get her lungs pumping. So, she strives for a natural approach to fitness that focuses on outdoor fun and yields impressive results such as better sleep, positive feelings, and a more youthful approach to life.
In her book, Griffin shares an “empowering mixture of practical suggestions and uncommon common sense, engagingly revealed through stories of childhood summers in the Irish countryside and a lifetime of playing outside in the four seasons of New England.”
Sounds like a good book for the exercise conundrum.
