You’re in pretty good shape for the shape you are in. Dr Seuss

Interestingly, in ancient Greece, good old Aristotle had founded the Peripatetic school, a school of philosophy, where classes where taught during walks.

While the reasoning behind the walking may differ, – see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peripatetic_school or various other references. – it important to point out that undoubtedly a walk in the fresh air makes you feel pretty good.

I think we all started out of the classroom windows at some point while the teacher’s voice became a low background noise and we wished we were outside,

From Aristotle’s walking classrooms to a couple of hours of P.E. a week, we have come a long way, in the wrong direction.

If we are taught from a young age the importance of exercise and if we are shown it in a fun and holistic way, we can develop a healthy habit, one that can help us throughout life..

We will get back to this at some point in the future.

In the meantime, a quick free reading that may inspire you or that you may want to pass to someone that needs inspiration..

We are all in this together.
