I came across this awesome video my friend posted on Facebook called 23 and 1/2 hours: What is the single best thing we can do for our health?
If you have eight minutes to spare, it might be the best thing you could ever watch for your health. It’s something that seems pretty obvious, but coming from a doctor who 1) didn’t have to give you this information and 2) presenting it to you with factual numbers it’s difficult to argue against the benefits of even moderate exercise.
I personally hate it when my friends and family tell me that they’re too busy to make time for themselves. It’s exercise. It’s not a chore. It’s something your body was built to do. By fighting nature you’re just creating an uphill battle for yourselves. You spend eight or so hours a day sleeping, and most of the time, you’re really just sitting and spinning your wheels anyways. Would thirty minutes a day really make or break your career or your family time? I would argue that it would probably increase the quality of time spent at work or with your family. I mean, if you can’t spare half an hour for yourself, what you’re really telling me is that you can’t take the basic steps to take care of your own personal business…which then leads me to believe that you can’t really take care of anyone else’s business — work or personal — since you are clearly unable to manage your time. (Harsh, but true.)
Is half an hour still too difficult for you? What’d you think of the video?
