How do I keep myself moving - one key to a better health

Updated on February 22, 2013

Biking is one of the most doable and endurable way of keeping yourself moving

Awake magazine said, quoting Emory University of Medicine, "If exercise were a pill, it would be the most widely prescribed medication in the world."

My best key to a better health

I keep myself moving. Quoting Emory University School of Medicine, Awake! magazine said that "If exercise is a pill, it would be the most widely prescribed medication in the world."

The one thing that is most practicable on my part to protect my health is biking.

I bought a bicycle for my exercise program. My home is 13 kilometers away from the office where I work. Daily I normally ride my motorcycle to and fro, from home to work and back. On my desire to optimize my health, I bought a bicycle, a Japanese model type. It has a carrier so that I can have my pack lunch for noon meal. From then on, I pedal from Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. If the weather is not good I use my motorcycle. I don't pedal on Wednesdays because of a midweek early morning at our Kingdom Hall. The Theocratic meeting will be finished by 7:30 am hence I don't have more time to bike to work, otherwise I would be late.

Pedalling makes you feel good

I learned that in order to achieve the benefit of exercise I need to exert myself to finish the 13 kilometers to the office. As compared with a treadmill-cycle, if I am tired then I'll just simply stop. With the real bicycle, however, and that the routine to use it as my means of transportation to my work, it will definitely force me to keep on exerting until the finish line and chasing after time.

If I am tired I can rest up a bit but I can not simply stop, because I would be late to the office. I leave home at about 7:01 am and for thirty to forty minutes I will arrive in my work. In the afternoon I depart from office at about 5:15 pm and at 5:50 pm I was home, At home I tender my little garden and shovel some weeds and use an axe to make some firewood. And for the rest, I drink some Lingzi coffee or if the mood is right I drink half glass of burgundy to maintain the good mood I got from biking. The effect to my spouse is contiguous, she too loves riding a bicycle.

How did I determine if the pacing of my speed in biking is approximate for my heart to cope with? On self monitoring, 114 heart beat per minute is safe with me, and my sweat is very minimal upon arriving at office, hence, no need for me to change my uniform. With that heart beat, I can still manage to sing while biking, I can still converse to a fellow if I happen to be in company with a biker, Sometime I tailgate a not so fast tricycle if it is not speeding over 45kph. I use the wind drag. This is not safe though. And I don't recommend that you use it unless you want some adrenaline rush.

On my personal theory a certain happy hormone is produce in my brain the moment my heart is beginning to exert. My leg muscles are fast learner, they easily adapt the work out. My legs refuses to signal a rebellion. I think biking is a little bit addictive.
