Nithya Venkat pens her thoughts and feelings about friends beyond boundaries.

Source

Keep exercising every day and increase your longevity. Be responsible and be around for your near and dear ones. Start exercising, start now.

Exercise is easy, exercise is fun,

Exercise is great for everyone,

Run, jog, walk, run or skip,

Make sure you do at least a little bit.

Increase your exercise day by day,

Keep at it and you will find a way,

To be healthy, to be aware,

Exercise keeps you healthy,

Exercise takes care,

Exercise brings benefits,

Many benefits that are free,

Remember with exercise,

You can live long and carefree,

Free of all ailments, free of cholesterol,

Free from all aches and pains,

Be healthy and stand tall,

Get up from your couch,

And switch off the TV,

Put away your games and your PSP’s,

Run out, play and celebrate,

The benefits of exercise,

To be healthy and safe,

Exercise and be,

“A” OKAY.

      Very true. Exercising is something we all must do for our best friend in the world -- Our own body. For professionals who have to sit for long hours, exercising becomes even more important. Not only is exercise beneficial for our physical health, but, recent studies have also shown that our brain cells benefit from it too.

      Great post, full of a lot of positivity.

      James-wolve thank you, running is a great form of exercise. Thank you for stopping by.

      Sort is very important nowadays.It is a real medicine.It relieves stress and helps prevent illnesses such as heart disease, in an enjoyable and exciting way.

      For me,I run because it's my passion, and not just a sport. Every time I walk out the door, I know why I'm going where I'm going and I'm already focused on that special place where I find my peace and solitude. Running, to me, is more than just a physical exercise... it's a consistent reward for victory! I VOTED UP!
