Current physical fitness health guidelines recommend we spend 3% (that’s correct – a “mere” 3%) of our daily waking hours in some form of moderate physical activity. Basically, 30 minutes a day, 4 to 5 times a week. That’s certainly do-able, right!? Think of the many positive benefits: higher energy level, a sharper mind, better attitude, increased libido and appetite, longevity, disease resistance, self esteem, etc., etc. That’s the carrot, now the stick, the negatives of Not exercising: a groggy mind, low energy level, earlier death, depression, disease, famine, pestilence (maybe not those last two, but you get the idea). We know that a reasonable amount of exercise is very, very good for us. So why don’t some of us do it!? Studies show that it takes about six weeks to develop a habit of exercise. Until that point it may require shear well-power, prayer, trickery, reward. (Check the internet for ideas). I find I treadmill twice as far if I’m watching an interesting video, for example. Mind over flab. As they say, the first step is the hardest. I find that once I literally step beyond my front door threshold on my way to the gym, I’m on automatic – I will exercise that day! 3% of your time is a very modest investment for significant, life enhancing returns. You’re informed, you’re motivated, now do it! To repurpose/rephrase James 2:17, Feet without walks, you’re dead!
