Portable exercise routine

You have to find a program that is transportable wherever you happen to be. I’ve changed my whole lifestyle in order to be able to fulfill my exercise program.I do 15 minutes of mat stretching, then I walk for 35 minutes, then I do about 10 more minutes of stretching. I do this 6 days a week. It’s not about living longer. I don’t think I can control that. But I have an opportunity to impact how well I feel each day. I also see an acupuncturist on a regular preventative basis to keep the immune system working.
