The topic of the last diary entries was the issues that many people have with their body. Two days ago Yashendu, Su, Ramona and I went to the basement of Suann’s apartment building. There is not only the room for doing laundry but also a big gym. All approximately 400 people who live in this building are allowed to use this gym for a small yearly contribution.
Su told me that she regularly goes there to do her workout and also teaches yoga classes there which some of the inhabitants of this building attend. But she also told that whenever she is down there and no matter at what time, there are always the same people and not more than maybe 35 go and exercise there. 35 people out of 400. She knows that many of her friends who live in the same building pay a monthly fee for a gym in the city instead although they can have everything just in their basement. And others don’t exercise and often feel guilty about that.
I don’t say that you need to go to the gym for making sports, that is not the only way to keep your body fit! But I am thinking about the attitude that many people have towards sports. Sports, movement, exercising, that all should be something fun to do! You should not see it as something that you have to do, which you actually don’t like to do. You have to realize how good you feel when you have done something for your body. Feel how you are full of energy! Give yourself a treat by moving your body, stretching, breathing! Enjoy your body and you will see how you will feel good in it! Whatever you do, enjoy it! Have fun!
