Exercise not only changes your body, but also your mind, attitude and mood. For most of us moving our body, building strength, and sweating isn't part of our job or required for survival anymore. But it is what we were meant to do. It's is imperative and a nonnegotiable for health and longevity. So no matter how you get it in find joy in daily movement, whether it be sports, yoga, dance, hiking, swimming, biking, climbing, or sex (go ahead and get sweaty in the sheets!). In order for exercise to become a lifestyle, I believe it's important to find a reason beyond just looking good in a bathing suit. Here are a few: Exercise reduces stress, anxiety, and depression, improves cognition and retention. Sleep better. Exercise so you can play with your kids and grandkids, so you can hike Machu Picchu, the Camino de Santiago, Kilimanjaro, or the Grand Canyon at any age. Exercise to sweat out toxins, protect your kidneys, release endorphins, clear your head, and activate flow state. Oh yeah, exercise will also improve sexy time too! What's your reason?
