In a world with infinite possibilities, we as a species can sometimes out think ourselves.  The results are in …  and this


isn’t groundbreaking news.  What is finally gaining public recognition has been preached since 400 B.C., literally!! The best medicine for us may not always be found in a pill bottle, but rather in quality movement (read: exercise).   Hippocrates wrote, (back in 400 B.C.)  “Eating alone will not keep a man well.  He must also take exercise.”  Fast-forward to the 21st century, and we have a similar message being preached (apparently it has taken us over 2,000 years to confirm Hippocrates advice.)  Dr. Mark Tarnopolsky, Genetic Metabolic Neurologist states, “Paper after paper shows that the most effective, potent way we can improve quality of life and duration of life is exercise.”  Now come on, who doesn’t want to add quality years to their life!?  If that isn’t enough, Marcas Bamman, Exercise Physiologist goes on to say, “I always tell people that exercise is regenerative medicine – restoring and repairing and basically fixing things that are broken.”  See, just because you are broken doesn’t mean you can’t be fixed!
Don’t let trends and fads fool you, exercise doesn’t need to be complicated, just get out and move!! Walk, run, bike, squat, lunge, crawl, push, pull, rotate… the possibilities are endless.  Use exercise as a time to relieve stress, not create it, use your imagination and add some more movement to your life!
Please reach out to me if you have any questions regarding how to add more exercise into your daily routine.
