Going for a walk
Have you been outdoors today?
There's more benefits with half an hour's walk a day every time I look:
- * exercise makes the liver build cells if you're an adrenergic stress person whose liver is geared for blood sugar
- * exercise makes the liver make sugar if you're an anabolic greaseball whose liver is geared for proteins and similar cell building materials
etc. etc. etc.
Morag Chacksfield added to this, back in 2003 when I wrote that list for the UK herbalists mailing list:
"Another benefit to add to your list:
The rhythmical movement of all four limbs in a crosswise pattern - left arm forward with right leg has a soothing, integrative effect on the brain. (This cross-movement is adapted as one of the floor exercises used to help brain-damaged children). Buddhist monks walk for miles in a steady relaxed way as part of a tudon or 'walking meditation'. It puts you in touch with yourself."
See? More every time I look.
