A modicum of fitness, hardly difficult to attain, is elusive to many. Yet there is one simple key: an active life.
I’ve previously written in Bruce Lee’s Bare Bones Fitness Advice some simple things you can do to increase activity.
Here are a few more:
- Desk Jockey’s: Get up and move every 50 minutes. Leave your desk and walk around. Stepping away not only helps your body—it helps your mind by giving you a chance to pull back and possibly see things from a new perspective.
- Truck Drivers: Learn how to practice joint mobility while you drive. Open and close your fists. Tilt your head from side to side. Roll your hips in circles. When you do get a chance to stop, do some posture exercises.
- Anyone who sits a lot: Re-learn the skill of jogging. A great book is Born to Run. Read it and be inspired to re-learn this important skill. Humans are natural long distance runners.
It doesn’t take a lot to stay fit or to get fit. But it does require patience, persistence, and consistency.
It also requires self-discipline. Conjure up a little self-discipline and make a decision that you are not going to live your life the way the masses live theirs. It’s not a pride thing, it’s nothing to rub in anyone’s face—it’s a personal challenge that you know will lead you to a fulfilling, rewarding life.
