Exercise

Dispositions of the mind, like limbs of the body, acquire strength by exercise. - Thomas Jefferson

Exercise because it's good for you even if every step weighs a thousand pounds. - Andrew Solomon

Exercise ferments the humours, casts them into their proper channels, throws off redundancies, and helps nature in those secret distributions, without which the body cannot subsist in its vigour, nor the soul act with cheerfulness. - Joseph Addison

Exercise is king and nutrition is queen: together, you have a kingdom. - Jack LaLanne

Exercise is the chief source of improvement in all our faculties. - Hugh Blair

Exercise raises body temperature and generates other forms of stress on cells throughout the body, causing them to increase their manufacture of certain heat shock proteins.

Srivastave

Exercise till the mind feels delight in reposing from the fatigue. - Socrates

For, in the course of common life, a man must either often exercise, or fast, or take physic, or be sick; and the choice seems left to every one as he likes. - William Temple

Health is the vital principle of bliss, and exercise, of health. - James Thomson

Labour or exercise ferments the humours, casts them into their proper channels, throws off redundancies, and helps nature in those secret distributions without which the body cannot subsist in its vigour, nor the soul act with cheerfulness. - Joseph Addison

Physical fitness takes commitment to exercise just as it requires good nutrition. But it doesn't have to be painful. Just the opposite: Vigorous exercise actually is stimulating. It boosts your energy levels, invigorates your mind, and just feels good afterward. The hardest part, of course, is getting started. - Jack LaLanne

The American College of Sports Medicine found that the productivity of people after exercise was an average of 65 percent higher than those who did not exercise. If I have something that's really bothering me, so much that it almost hurts my head to try to sort it out, I always find the solution in a puddle of sweat! Intense exercise is like taking a magic pill that gives you the ability to solve problems like a superhero. - Charlene Johnson

The best cares or provisions for life and health, that are left us, consist in the discreet and temperate government of diet and exercise. - William Temple

The body when over-laboured becomes heavy and jaded; but it is exercise alone that supports the spirits, and keeps the mind in vigour. - Cicero

Typically, people who exercise, start eating better and becoming more productive at work. They smoke less and show more patience with colleagues and family. They use their credit cards less frequently and say they feel less stressed. Exercise is a keystone habit that triggers widespread change. - Charles Duhigg

Walking is the very best exercise. Habituate yourself to walk very far. - Thomas Jefferson

Yes, exercise is the catalyst. That's what makes everything happen: your digestion, your elimination, your sex life, your skin, hair, everything about you depends on circulation. - Jack LaLanne
