“The clouds come in all different shapes and sizes.”
– B. L. Crisp
This is the real pickle for many. How to get a good work out and remain fit whilst living a busy lifestyle. The clouds come in all different shapes and sizes, and so do people – we need to accept that fact in ourselves and others. Embrace those subtle differences in body shapes and types. I am not saying that being obese should be embraced because any condition or weight that is harmful to one’s health needs immediate addressing. However, do embrace that little love handle, those hairy arms, or whatever qualities you like and feel comfortable with.
Now that you are meditating and stretching everyday you already have the perfect foundation to continue to build upon. But remember, everybody is different and so you need to find the exercise and pattern that best suites you. Just because you see people jogging who are in seemingly good shape does not mean it is going to work for you. Many people are mystified after doing so much exercise, but find their weight is not as they would like it to be.
I have found that a combination of simple exercises is an effective way to manage your weight ambitions. In addition to meditating and stretching, as well as eating right (next section), you can do the following exercises:

- Walk before eating. Try to go for a walk for a few minutes, even if it is in the garden, around the flat/house before you eat. This activates your body and helps break down food faster and more effectively
- Try to walk everywhere and leave plenty time to do so. If the distance is to great, then cycle. If it is far to great to cycle, then use public transport, but get off a stop before and walk the rest of the distance… | …
