The problem is not time, it is “want to” when it comes to exercise. And that is an easy switch to flip. That doesn’t automatically open time up in your schedule, I know. But perhaps you only need a shift in perspective! You are not too busy to add movement to your day…30 minutes a day will most certainly be a great way to jump into the holidays this year!
Making Exercise a Priority
Much of the western world has cultivated a sedentary lifestyle. Because of technology much of our work is done at the computer, and much of our entertainment is done in front of a screen. Advancements in technology give us both benefits and hindrances, and we must change to compensate for both. We as a society have been quick to accept the benefits of technology, but we’ve had trouble adjusting to the hindrances, one of which is a lack of exercise.
We don’t have to milk a cow. We don’t have to walk to the store. We don’t have to till our own ground. Our daily exercise has been lost, which is why we have to create our own. Our bodies and souls were created to enjoy the vigors of exercise. Without it, we lack energy, stamina and mental sharpness.
