I don't want to fight nature so that the person I'm working with gets to their God-given or genes-given level of well being.I want to work with nature. Nature to be commanded must be obeyed.One of the dictates of nature is that we need to be physically active.Now I was just talking about this over dinner-I had dinner with Dave Fish, the tennis coach and his wife,Bonnie Mosland, who is a clinical therapist. And she told me, "yeah."You know she's been treating people for years."That's what I do. Prerequisite for treatment with me is physical exercise."So there are apprently psychologists who understand the importance of exercise.Why fight nature here? When you can start and the base level can be here?Some other benefits-again all based on research.You've read some of it in your readings, but more benefits to exercise.First psychological benefit: self-esteem.On a few levels-first of all, bodily self-esteem, we feel better about ourselves;and also general self-esteem, we feel better about ourselves. State as well as trait self-esteem increases.In other words, as we feel right after we exercise but also as we feel in the long term if we have a regular exercise regime.So both state as well as trait self-esteem is increased.Anxiety and stress-one of the things that is most susceptible to exercise.
