If something on the market would improve the longevity of your car as much as exercise improves your body it would sell off the shelves in minutes.
The human body was designed to move frequently, and when your body is not moved it breaks down more quickly. This leads to the old saying of “move it or lose it.” Technology is an amazing thing but it has dramatically reduced our need to move at our jobs or for daily household activities. Less than 100 years ago, we would have gotten exercise while washing clothes, getting water out of a well, gardening, and/ or making things at a factory.
Now we have to set aside time to “tune up” our bodies to ensure we circulate the gas and oil keeping our bodies running smoothly.
I want to change the general outlook that exercise is something “you HAVE to do” and food is something “you deserve”. I challenge everyone to DO something with a special person in your life that does not revolve around food the next time you are celebrating a special moment in your life. The activity can be anything from walking in a park, taking a class, or playing a game together.
I bet you will remember your time with that person and will have a stronger relationship with them person due to the shared experience. Not to mention all the health benefits from the above list.
Let’s all get out for a walk with a friend, run after your kids (grandkids), or play fetch with our dog to reap all the amazing benefits of moving our bodies.
Here are a few reasons why Exercise is the fountain of youth:
