If our society did’t pressure us into working out. Would you still do it?

    In out modern society working out is a ‘must’. It helps you lose weight (something apparently EVERYONE always wants), builds muscle, is healthy etc. I feel like because of this working out has gotten a bad rep. When I was growing up I never wanted to work out. But I love being active. I always associated working out with dieting and losing weight and I learned not to love it.

    Even if society didn't pressure us to workout, the health benefits are so great that I would do it anyways. Reducing the risk of cancer and type 2 diabetes may let me live longer and be healthy later in life, which is a big plus. Also, I can improve my mood, which helps everywhere, even when you're taking your lazy time. It really boils down to whether you want to take that extra time now to watch an extra hour of TV or whether you're willing to exercise that hour and increase your life a few extra years.

    I would still work out, since there are a lot of health benefits, and even if there were no health benefits, working out with friends is always super fun!

    It isn't really about what society thinks or says it is all about you. What do you want, how do you want to live your life, do you want to just sit around grow fat and shapeless and feel good about it or do you want to shape uo and keep young and vibrant. Those are some of the questions i would pose to myself, and the truth is i once i do that i will definitely go out of my way and work out.

    I have to have movement daily, even if it just stretching. Having those moments of where I don't do anything over a week or more. I feel it, I feel the affects of not moving, and when I get started I feel it. I enjoy the pain for the gain. Makes me feel alive.
