Fitness is one of the most important parts of living life to the fullest. Our bodies were not designed to sit still. When not in use our bodies atrophy and our muscles and bones deteriorate to the point where they die. We become lethargic and depressed and start to think the world is against us when in reality we’re only hating ourselves. Being physically fit not only helps your body but mental acuity, emotional wellbeing, and self awareness. Fitness gives you more energy and actually helps you be happier. The more energy you have throughout the day the better your mood is, the better you treat others, and the better your life becomes overall.
You don’t have to be a gym rat to be fit but you do have to do something. Sitting in front of a computer or TV might feed your mind but it does little for your body. Get motivated and start moving, find something that you like and do it. If you don’t like exercise don’t make an excuse! Learn to like it. The point is to start doing something. You make your own excuses and you accept them so if you want to do it you will. I joined CrossFit and drank the Kool-Aid because it provides me with an atmosphere where I compete against myself and have the support of others to do it. That is my choice and I am enjoying every minute of it because I want to.
