It is a proven fact… exercise is a fundamental component to an individual’s physical and mental well-being. You’ve been hearing it all of your life from doctors, friends, and family, but if that still isn’t enough to convince you that it is time to start moving, here are 9 of my favorite exercise related quotes for a little motivation:
Physical fitness is not only
one of the most important keys to a healthy body;
it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity.
-John F. Kennedy
It is exercise alone that supports the spirits,
and keeps the mind in vigor.
Movement is a medicine for creating change
in a person’s physical, emotional, and mental states.
Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being,
while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.
Wholesome exercise in the free air, under the wide sky,
is the best medicine for body and spirit.
-Sarah Louise Arnold
True enjoyment comes from activity of the mind
and exercise of the body; the two are united.
-Alexander von Humboldt
A man’s health can be judged by which he takes two at a time pills or stairs.
