Frank Forencich of Exuberant Animal believes that we can accomplish some pretty amazing things by living the way we were designed to. A strong contributer to disease, both physical and mental, is stagnation. We are simply not meant to be sedentary beings.
Frank, however, is not out there doling out the recommendation to jump on that treadmill or elliptical machine. Frank wants you to play! Remember playing? That thing we did when we were young, but phased out when we 'matured'? Frank, and many like him, believe that play is not reserved for the very young. We should all be out there playing and laughing!
Wouldn't it be something if doctors gave prescriptions to play rather than a bottle of antidepressants? Check out another great article by Frank, "Just Don't Do It: The Case Against Exercise".
