Find Physical Activity You Enjoy and Do It Regularly
A lot of people go to great lengths to make sure they are eating healthy food, but they don’t bother to exercise regularly. Movement aids digestion, assimilation, circulation and respiration and is a crucial part of any healthy person’s regimen. Many people don’t like exercising. It’s challenging for them to find an exercise they enjoy. Think about what you loved to do as a kid. Did you dance, bike or hike? This is a good place to start when looking for a new exercise routine. Look for a gym or yoga studio near your home or on the way to the office where you can work out. It’s important to find a location that’s convenient, and where the atmosphere is pleasant, comfortable and welcoming. This will enhance your chances of going regularly.
Exercising can be an opportunity to reconnect with nature, perhaps by going to a large park if you are a city dweller. Getting out to a rural environment—somewhere you can breathe clean, fresh air, hear the birds and see the sky—on a regular basis can be very healing. We can live without food for months, and without water for days. However, we cannot live without air for more than a few minutes, so it makes sense that air quality is essential to life quality.
