    It’s sad that I can’t always exercise. I have to go to school early so I have no time.

      It can be difficult to get in a regular exercise program, but you can exercise by doing little movements throughout the day. Wiggling your fingers or shaking your hands or arms when you’re in the car or waiting for class to start is a good way to increase your movement and get some exercise into your day. Doing isometric exercises like tightening your leg muscles, holding it for a few seconds, then releasing is another way you can exercise in class or when you have just a few moments of time. Use natural waiting times like waiting at stoplights, waiting at doctor’s appointments, and sitting in the bathroom to take deep breaths and move your body. It doesn’t have to be big movement, or long exercise, your body just needs a change from sitting or standing in one position for a long time.
