We are living in a world that tries to “sell”  peace of mind, happiness and self-care as an indulgent and luxurious commodity. Escaping stress, the ever-increasing do-list, domestic chores, business responsibility and spiritual pressure is just a “click” away. When self-care is founded in whimsical escapes, the benefits dissolve in seconds of returning to normal life. 

Likewise, building a life on avoiding daily exercise and rewarding ourselves with designer self-care packages, means we choose “things” over our human health. The body needs to move daily; exercise is the means by which the body’s musculoskeletal system retains its functionality in our gentrified urban society.

Failing to see daily exercise as necessary and integral to well-being is intentionally preventing the body’s ability to heal from the stresses of living a modern life. It is a form of self sabotage.

Daily exercise is the finding of peace in busyness.  It is learning to become one piece of the world around you, and one piece of the people who surround you. Your body, is a piece of your life that needs the care that exercise affords. Peace is therefore the amalgamation of the many pieces that make the picture of you.
