I want to send everyone over to the Get Rich Slowly website for an amazing (and inspiring and insightful) article by Robert Brokamp, titled Make the Choice Not to Decay.
Maybe it’s a sign of getting older, but it is refreshing to re-categorize exercise not as a “must do,” but as “sending a constant ‘grow’ message…as telling your body to get stronger, more limber, functionally younger, in the only language your body understands” (Brokamp paraphrasing Henry Lodge).
How great a realization is that?
Of course, the hard part is as hard as it ever was…. get moving!
But at least now, it’s not necessarily making yourself do something you have to do… it’s about doing something nice for your body.
PS – Could wellness topics be a springtime PF blogger trend? Let’s hope!
