I was running this morning (feeling very virtuous for a change - I've run three days this week, done yoga for an hour, a Pilates class for an hour and a 500m outdoor swim in the dark) and pondering the exercise link.
Food factors in a big part of the health equation, as does other healthful living, but it's not the whole deal by any stretch of the imagination. Eating well can help with lots but ultimately for true, vibrant, glowing health we need to move.
Shake that ass. Run, swim, cycle, dance, walk, exercise classes, climb a hill, walk on the beach and feel the sand between your toes. Possibilities are endless really but do, do make it fun. Make it so you can laugh, smile, enjoy it. Do it with friends, by yourself, in a group, with new friends. Just, as Nike so elogently puts it - Just Do It.
