I hate to work out, so I don’t. I think it’s unnatural, I don’t practise things that I don’t need. I don’t need to be able to row for half an hour, because I don’t live on an
island, so I don’t practise this on a fitness rowing machine. I don’t run for 5 miles, because I never need that. I can walk for five miles if I want, and i have a car when I need to go fast.
I do want to be able to play the piano for 2 hours every day, so I practise that. Not on a fitness piano machine, but on an actual piano. It’s a lot of fun. I also need to be able to walk our dog several times a day for half an hour each time. So I do, with the actual dog. She has a lot of fun too. And so I also walk the stairs of our appartement building as often as I need to get down and up again. There is an elevator, but I don’t use that, unless I have to carry heavy stuff.
I keep moving around acccording to my natural needs and abilities. I find it’s easy to keep this up, because it fits my natural healthy routine and my normal needs. My body seems to fair well by this. When I overdo it, it protests. And I learn from that. By taking a break and not overdoing it again. I have a wise body. It won’t run a marathon, but that’s okay – I would never ask for that. When I am not feeling well, I adapt my activities to that. It will clear up again and than I resume my normal routine.
