Wise words in this text:
“Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.” – Edward Stanley, Earl of Derby 1873
“Don’t put off for tomorrow what you could do today” – Thomas Jefferson (1700s)
139 years ago, in 1873, Edward Stanley, the earl of Derby wrote
“Those who think they have not time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.”
Wow. Can these words be anymore clearer?
What will it take for us all to heed of those words?
It’s been over a hundred and thirty years since these words were expressed yet many of us continue to wait until it hurts; many us continue to wait until we’ve been diagnosed with a disease; in order for us to start exercising consistently.
Many of us are waiting until someone embarrasses us or waiting until we embarrass ourselves. (please understand this is not to offend)
Waiting until we try 10 different outfits in the fitting room only to find nothing.
Waiting until your doctor diagnoses you with diabetes or high blood pressure and prescribes prescription pills.
Waiting until your knees and back aches because of the added weight.
If we do not find time for exericise it is inevitable that we will have to make time for bodily illness.
You have a choice to make right now.
Would you rather suffer from the time it takes to exercise consistently for at least 30 minutes 3 to 5x a week or put it off for 20 years later when you finally suffer from a preventable illness?
“Don’t put off for tomorrow what you could do today” - Thomas Jefferson (1700s)
