Now I'm sure you are already laughing at the title of this Little Review! But I must say, that if you love your family, there are two things that you will immediately add to that room where everyone gathers to check out their emails, Facebook postings, Google + pages and anything and everything else that you could possibly do on the computer.
Have you come up with what those two things are, yet? Don't worry if you haven't because I'm sure there are lots and lots of people who are scratching their heads right now and that will never think of these two things.
Now let me assure you, that they are not the regular things you might think of like, monitors or printers, paper and other computer related items, as a matter of fact, these are not really computer related at all, at least not directly.
Let me give you a little information that might help you decipher what I am talking about:
Most Americans and Canadians, are found to live a lifestyle that is far too sedentary. The minimum of 20 minutes of exercise daily, is not being met by the majority of people over 40. And that is 20 minutes of accumulated exercise. Every time you exercise for 5 minutes or more, you add it to the next 5 minutes of exercise until you come to the 20 minute level.
That doesn't sound too strenuous for anyone, yet we don't do that little bit. Why?
Well it seems that the biggest problem is people come home from work, and sit down at the computer to do just a few "things" and before they know it 3 hours have been whittled out of your life, and it's time for bed.
Now, if you had these two things in your computer room, you would never get that far behind in your minimum requirements of exercise per day.
The first item needed, is a Kitchen Timer, and in this case we are going to re-purpose that Kitchen Timer to be our Computer Time Timer.

Once you are at the computer, set the Timer to 55 minutes (or 50 minutes for those who are more active already). Don't cheat, just do it!
Now when that timer goes off, you need that second piece of equipment in your Computer Room. That equipment is a Stationary Bike. So the Timer has gone off, it's time to get out of your chair and get on the Stationary Bike. It won't help if you just look at it, you have to get on it!

Now if you are really smart and I'm sure that you are, you can load up all those You Tube Videos that you have wanted to watch and let them roll! You are on your bike, pedalling your way to a healthier lifestyle and still doing what you like to do on the computer. This is the best WIN-WIN situation, ever! If you are not into watching You Tube, you can put a movie into your CD ROM and catch up on a movie in the 5 or 10 minutes that you have set the timer for.
In 5 or 10 minutes you can get off the bike and resume your position in front of the computer again and continue your blogging or catching up with your friends on Face Book or just searching for whatever floats your boat!.
