I’m constantly saying, “Don’t you wish there were a magic pill you could take that would immediately make you healthy, happy, and HOT?” You may be laughing but I bet you’ve said the exact same thing!
I’m happy to inform you today that there IS a MAGIC PILL!!! One that cures just about anything that might ail ya! One that EVERYONE has access to! One that has NO nasty side effects! One that is FREE, even if you don’t have awesome insurance! One that begins working IMMEDIATELY!
Yep, you guessed it…EXERCISE = MAGIC PILL!
Look, I know this is not rocket science. I know that most everyone on the planet has heard the benefits of exercise over and over.
My question is, WHY AREN’T WE LISTENING?
I read an article in TIME magazine discussing the science behind exercise. Exercise is scientifically proven to alleviate and aide in numerous body functions. Exercise can regenerate neurons in the brain…holding off nasty disease processes like dementia and Alzheimer’s. Exercise boosts your brain power!!
Exercise is really the FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH! Who doesn’t want to stumble into that and come out with shiny hair, glowing skin and a toned, firm body?? I do! I do! Exercise reverses aging on a cellular level!
This information has my mind going in a million directions…
Why do we run to chemical medications to heal our body, instead of doing our best to prevent the illnesses in the first place?
Why do we fill our bodies full of junk and then expect them to function normally?
Why do insurance companies pay for preventative medicine, but not gym memberships?
If we know how to prevent sickness, if we know that exercise changes a person all the way down to their cells, why are the masses not taking advantage of this miracle cure?
The excuses are always hanging around. Not enough time. Too hard. Not fun.
It’s time to kick those excuses to the curb. Exercise doesn’t have to be a marathon. You don’t have to take on CrossFit or American Ninja Warrior workouts. If you are new to the world of movement, start small. Take a thirty minute stroll through your neighborhood. If you are pinched for time, make it snappy. Doing a 10 minute high intensity interval workout is just as effective as a longer, lower intensity, workout. Do anything that makes you feel good, the only requirement = MOVE YOUR BODY!!
You are now my witnesses. I am going to do my best to educate every person that I know about the miracles of exercise (even though that sounds super cheesy). I am going to sing it from the rafters (ok, maybe not the rafters because I’m scared of heights)! A magic, miracle drug is out there! Waiting for you to take advantage of it!!!
Who’s with me? Let’s dive into the fountain of youth!!!
