Boost Self Confidence
Get in shape
a health and fitness guide to give you more energy and more confidence.
A vigorous walk will do more for an unhappy but otherwise healthy adult than all the medicine and psychology in the world. - Paul Dudley White
Getting in shape physically is a wonderful way of building your confidence and self-image. It's not easy to feel confident if you're overweight, and exhausted after climbing a flight of stairs. Health and fitness are just like any other areas of life: get the causes right and the effects come right too. This means, for instance, sensible eating, good breathing and posture, regular exercise and plenty of laughter and relaxation.
The recipe for better health, maximum energy, minimum illness and an extended lifespan has a familiar ring to it:
1. Choose fitness: make it your intention to be healthy.
2. Think health and fitness.
3. Imagine yourself in peak condition.
4. Act 'as if 'you want to be as fit and healthy as possible.
Give your body what it needs, and it will return the favour! Just 20 minutes aerobic exercise a day is quite sufficient to enable most people to maintain good health.
