Whenever I feel the need to exercise, I lie down until it goes away.
Being entirely honest with oneself is a good exercise.
My grandmother started walking five miles a day when she was sixty. She's ninety-seven now, and we don't know where the heck she is.
Listen to the people who love you. Believe that they are worth living for even when you don't believe it. Seek out the memories depression takes away and project them into the future. Be brave; be strong; take your pills. Exercise because it's good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds. Eat when food itself disgusts you. Reason with yourself when you have lost your reason.
Get comfortable with being uncomfortable!
A bear, however hard he tries, grows tubby without exercise.
I ran three miles, staggered into the lobby, and took the elevator back to my apartment. No point to overdoing this exercise junk. --Stephanie Plum
Health is hearty, health is harmony, health is happiness.
You only get one body; it is the temple of your soul. Even God is willing to dwell there. If you truly treat your body like a temple, it will serve you well for decades. If you abuse it you must be prepared for poor health and a lack of energy.
Exercises are like prose, whereas yoga is the poetry of movements. Once you understand the grammar of yoga; you can write your poetry of movements.
Sometimes customizing is necessary because of an injury or the inability to do, for a short or long period, the kind of exercise you formerly did. When you're used to customizing for fun, doing it under duress won't seem like such an imposition. Either way, experiment until you find activities that make you happy as well as healthy. Choose your exercise using the same criteria you'd apply to choosing a date--that is, attractive to you and able to hold your interest for an hour.
The process of mindfully shifting your attention among inputs may offer you mood benefits, in addition to the mood lift that exercise itself will bring you. Shifting attention in this way may well strengthen the part of your brain that acts to dampen down the ruminations that occur during depression. Shifting attention also makes you able to enjoy richer experiences. You can't lose—whether it is a useful brain exercise for fighting the ruminations of depression or simply a way to drink in joy while exerting yourself, guiding your attention mindfully has its benefits.
He who makes fun of a short and fat man’s weight is much less cruel than he who makes fun of his height.
The biology of emotional freedom depends on getting your endorphins flowing and turning off your stress hormones. How you achieve this? Laughter, exercise, meditation and doing anything that makes you loved.
When I started displaying a dementia like illness, I began developing quotes to exercise my damaged brain.
Listen for the call of your destiny, and when it comes, release your plans and follow.
Don't fight your biology. Get out of your own way and make all your activity align with the same goal. Once you've achieved that goal - then you can pivot and work toward something else.
Some people would fall in or out of love with you if you lose or gain a few kilos.
I love the exercise. I figured if I'm doing something I like, maybe I will find a nice man.
It is never too late to start taking care of the body you have.
