My Thoughts:

Between sitting on the couch with a tub of ice cream and watching TV or going for a mile run outside in the cold, which would you rather pick? We can agree that the latter doesn’t sound as glamorous—being sweaty, pulling on the athletic gear, and being seen in public a state of matter you wouldn’t be caught dead in are all aspects you dread. But in the long run, it could lead to a better mood, a better body, and a more positive outlook on life. Ice cream and TV may benefit you in the moment, but in the long run, neither things  give you an advantage in life. I’ve found ways to make exercise more enjoyable; first was to change my mindset. Next was to find a routine that was beneficial to my body. Most people make the mistake of starting their first day with a fast-paced 10 mile jog, but that ends up being counterproductive. Not only do you begin to fear exercise, but your body would be sore for the next several days. By finding ways to incorporate exercise slowly into my daily routine, I’ve been noticing the effects on my body, temperament, and even work ethic.

Wouldnt it be nice to see research like this used to promote the benefits of exercise in the areas of rehab and anti-aging instead of drugs being the first port of call?
