Exercising for the sake of your health

Came across a pretty funny comic today:

Exercise health advice

There’s probably some truth in it. Most people would find it far more comfortable and convenient just to take a pill, rather than having to exercise regularly to stay healthy.

The thing with exercise is that to a great extent, it all hinges on motivation, and motivation is tricky (see this morning’s quite related post for Norwegian speakers – in a nutshell the point was that every Monday marks a new week, and it’s never too late to start exercising).

Perhaps it’s time to start compiling a list of things that motivate you to exercise, health benefits being an obvious one. What are yours? Share in the comments!
