Exercise: It Does a Body Good

I Duz Yoga Ta Relax

Usually I feel like exercising is a big waste of time. It’s probably because I feel like I could be doing something else during that time. It’s doubly true because I’ve stopped exercising to lose weight. (Exercising — alone — to lose weight doesn’t really work because diet determines at least 50% of your weight loss endeavor, and I haven’t wanted to diet for a while.)

But recently, I’ve noticed that when I do go to the gym and spend a lot of time stretching and doing prehab work, I just feel so much better. I’ve been feeling some significant neck and back pain, and an hour of stretching and ball exercises really loosens up the knots in my back.

So if you’re feeling tight in the back, have a stiff neck and so on, why not try stretching for half an hour? Your body may thank you.

    Thanks for the exercise tip :) I do at least 15 minutes of yoga each morning. Because I truly can’t see myself at the gym doing anything :( OK. I hate the gym.

      I don’t like going to the gym either, but I try to go and/or at least stretch at home, etc.
