The single best thing you can do for your health. Really!

December 13, 2011, by A. U. Crawford

Health is important to everyone. I take vitamins and I watch what I eat, but really I’m just guessing. There is so much “information” out there about what’s good for you and what you should do to live longer, stay healthy and maintain youthfulness. This visual thinking video has the most simple solution.

Basically the key to health is exercise. I know, common sense right, but look around. Listen to the advertising. If it’s not some gadget then it’s a pill or a diet. The fine print is always “When used with proper exercise and diet”. Exercise is like a bonus. You don’t have to do that part but if you do then all the better.

According to Dr. Mike Evans (narrator, founder of the Health Design Lab at the Li Ka Shing Knowledge Institute, an Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Public Health at the University of Toronto, and a staff physician at St. Michael’s Hospital), all you need is 30 min of walking around a day. After his own research he believes that exercise should be the number one thing you do and that then goes with other healthy stuff. Not heavy exercise, just get up and take a walk.

Any ways I think I’ll give it a try. I mean we’re pretty much Gorge Jetson these days. Sitting and pushing buttons has become a national past time. Wasn’t there some kind of desk treadmill combo a while back. I wonder if they still make those?
