8 - 1 > 8

Post by Terry » Tue Sep 19, 2006 10:37 am

When I was in high school, my physical education teacher once explained why 8 - 1 > 8. Say you work or study 8 hours a day. If you take 1 out of the 8 hours and commit yourself to physical exercise, you will get much more done in the 7 hours left than you could in the 8 hours without moving your butt. In other words, physical activities make you work or study more efficiently.

I didn't believe that wisdom before, but I do now. The long-term benefits of the one "lost" hour everyday can be enormous in term of keeping one healthy, energetic and happy.

Calculate in another way: if you don't commit the time every day for your own well-being, how much time do you have to spend at your doctor's office, pharmacy and hospital in the future? How much money does it cost you when illness like diabetes, hypertension or heart disease strikes?

8 - 1 > 8 rule can go a long way in getting you in shape and keeping you healthy!
