Exercise and Fitness - A Total Benefit Package

"Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it."  ~Plato

What is exercise and how is it good for us? It’s possible that the benefits are too many to count! Physically, simple daily exercise tones and strengthens muscles, builds bone, moves blood, fluids and waste, stimulates the brain, encourages all the systems of the body to function optimally, and restores and maintains health - all the while keeping us young! On an emotional level, what is exercise’s invigorating effect? It is caused by the release of endorphins that allow us to feel happier and maintain a more balanced outlook in the face of disappointment and hardship. And we’re much more prone to feel good if we know we look our best too. Mentally, we’re always more fit if our bodies are fit as well. Regular exercise keeps the mind strong and fluid…and also keeps us more open-minded. Spiritually, when we’ve kept the temple of our bodies healthy and clean, we experience a greater openness to the urges of our Soul, and to the inner voice of the Divine, thus healing through exercise truly begins.

Exercise healing can work wonders not only for your body but also for your soul. As your body is strengthened, you get the energy and the motivation to do things that enrich your life.

Make a commitment today to begin a regular, daily regimen of healing exercise. This kind of introduction to exercise can be simple, starting with something as simple and quick as a 20 minute walk each morning or evening! Walking is one of the best ways we can spend our time, and the benefits are wonderful.

"It is exercise alone that supports the spirits, and keeps the mind in vigor."  ~Marcus Tullius Cicero
