Did you now that, in the not too distant past, there were medical professionals that said rigorous exercise would overtax your heart and end up killing you?
Of course, these were the same medical professionals that would talk about what brand of cigarettes they prefer.
What’s kinda crazy though is that some people still believe exercise is BAD for you!
It all started in the days of ancient Greece.
A messenger named Pheidippides had to run a long distance to convey the outcome of a decisive battle.
He delivered the message, and then dropped dead from exhaustion.
Guess what the name of the coastal province where the battle took place was?
And so it began.
Of course, the part that gets left out is that Pheidippides ended up running about 300 miles! (150 of those in just 2 days)
Today (most of us) know better. Study after study has shown the benefits of pushing ourselves and physical exertion.
But you don’t have to do Spartan races or ultramarathons.
It turns out that ANY kind of movement is beneficial; some is always better than none.
Walking is one of the most underrated activities you can do to promote health.
Or get down on the floor and just stretch and move your body around.
You don’t have to get “hardcore” right from the beginning. A little bit of movement every day is better than killing yourself in the gym once or twice a week.
You can always build momentum and work your way up to whatever level of fitness you want.
The point to all of this is just to keep getting at it. On the days we feel less-than-motivated, it can help just to do something.
If you didn’t make it to the gym as planned today, take the dog for a walk or do some chores around the house.
You’ll feel less guilty and get the blood pumping in the process.
One step at a time. Literally.
