Most people tend to work out too hard. Exercise should make you feel good.

It promotes circulation, which in turn brings nutrients to parts of our bodies that might be getting a little worn. Like joints for example, gentle exercise helps to decrease the pain of osteo-arthritis. To our brains, it creates a chemical change that just makes us feel happier.

Other reasons all of us can benefit from exercise:

Lose weight, lower blood pressure, feels good, gets rid of stress, increases energy, time with a friend as you walk together, looking and feeling good, sleeps better, clothes fit better and best of all feel justified taking a trip to the Dairy Queen once in a while.

“Patience is the companion of wisdom.” –St. Augustine
