How to Think About Exercise Book Description:

It can often seem as though existence is split in two: body and mind, flesh and spirit, moving and thinking. In the office or at study we are 'mind workers', with superfluous bodies. In the gym we stretch, run and lift, but our minds are idle. Damon Young challenges this idea, revealing how fitness can develop our bodies and minds as one. Exploring exercises and sports with the help of ancient and modern philosophy, he uncovers the pleasures, virtues and big ideas of fitness. By exercising intelligently, we are committing to wholeness: enjoying and enhancing our full humanity. One in the new series of books from The School of Life, launched January 2014: How to Age by Anne Karpf How to Develop Emotional Health by Oliver James How to Be Alone by Sara Maitland How to Deal with Adversity by Christopher Hamilton How to Think About Exercise by Damon Young How to Connect with Nature by Tristan Gooley

How to Make Exercise a Part of Your Life Exercise lifestyle tips for Millennials Book Description:

Table of Contents Introduction Thinking about Your Body Image Working on Workouts One Thing at a Time Getting into the Habit Taking the Time out… Activities That You Enjoy Exercise Dance Routines Going through a Fixed Routine Best time to work out? Motivation Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction I was just talking to a friend, who said that she had been motivated to join the gym, because that was the only way in which he could keep herself fit. She had paid up a large amount of money and she wanted value for money. I wanted to tell her that with the whole world getting crazy about keeping fit, and exercising, and people telling you that you need to work out in order to keep healthy, and this workout should be done on a regular basis, it is a wonder how so many people just shudder whenever they hear the word “exercise.” So this book is for all those who hate to exercise. This includes you. This includes me, especially when we are not keeping fit freaks obsessed with a streamlined body and zero fat image. We would rather be comfortable with what we have, as long as we are reasonably healthy. Believe it or not, in many parts of the world, what you consider to be fit, healthy, and attractive is going to be considered to be unfit, ugly, unattractive, and on the point of starvation. So depending on where you are located geographically, remember that exercise is not a bad word, but I want to get people to stop thinking of it as a duty, which has to be done, without any joy, without any fun, just because one has been told to do that in order to keep fit. And this is the reason why so many people spend lots of money joining gyms, and getting physical trainers to think up a fitness routine for them.
