Motion is a fundamental pleasure. The ability to freely come and go, up stairs, to throw a ball, to chase a kid around, to walk through the woods, to dance, to play.
All of these things rely on a healthy body. Losing even a small amount of them can lead to less excitement, enjoyment and pleasure. Imagine saying no to one or more of your beloved activities. Imagine the chane of never doing them again and what the impact would be on you.
You owe it to your “long term” self and to your loved ones to protect, strengthen, and enhance your abilty to move freely.
Please, for yourself… exercise, stretch, lose weight, destress, eat nutritous foods, laugh, repair and otherwise put energy into maintaining your health
