Our bodies are meant to move!


Try to incorporate some form of exercise most days of the week. If you are not well or have no energy and cannot imagine working out, try energy-building exercise, such as tai chi, qi gong, or yoga, do it regularly, and marvel at the energy you gain from the practice. Stick to pain-free ranges of motion, and enjoy! For more energy building exercise that you can do easily at home refer to How to Eat, Move, and Be Healthy! by Paul Chek, and learn the zone exercises. Donna Farhi’s book Yoga; Mind, Body, Spirit which is primarily devoted to the yoga asanas is another excellent resource.

Exercise does not need to be a workout in the gym. Go for a walk or bike ride. Go inline skating. Go cross country skiing. Jump in a lake and swim. Enjoy an afternoon of kayaking or canoeing. How about hiking or mountain biking? Go indoor wall climbing. Play a game of tennis, soccer or baseball. Go skating. Just have fun and be active. Your body will thank you.
