Quitting smoking is considered a major lifestyle change for most. One of the best things you can do is take it a step or two further and change other areas of your life as well. One of which is getting physically active. When you get physically active there are many positive health benefits but there is more to it than that.
Getting physically active reaches much further, not only do you get health benefits but you get a place or activity to connect with other like minded people, you get the chance to enjoy the great outdoors, you can have some fun, improve your personal appearance, be with friends and family, and as your fitness level increases you can enjoy more intense sporting activities.
When was the last time your raced your kids in the park or played soccer with them without needing to stop to catch your breath? As you get more days under your belt not smoking and being physically active you are going to be able to experience new things. Consider taking up mountain biking, jogging, skiing, or a cardio class at the gym to meet new people. Getting physically active opens up doors! As a smoker it was hard to do many things that require a person to exert themselves but you can get that energy back and there are countless opportunities out there at many different fitness levels.
