In Dr. Murad’s revolutionary new book, Conquering Cultural Stress: The Ultimate Guide to Anti-Aging and Happiness (now available in hardback), he reveals his three powerful and life-changing steps to looking, living and feeling better. Step 1 is all about letting go of your need to be perfect and Step 2 covers improving your health at a fundamental level. Today, we’re looking at Step 3: embracing the power of movement.
This chapter is not about spending hours at the gym or doing exercises you find boring or tedious. You shouldn’t have to force yourself to burn calories and get fit! Step 3 of Conquering Cultural Stress is about how exercising for pleasure will not only help you reduce Cultural Stress®, but it will also help you look younger, feel stronger and live longer.
“There is no one-size-fits-all program, so stop beating yourself up for shortcomings in the workout department. The time has come to figure out what it is that you love to do and that gets your blood running physically and psychologically. After all, movement is one of the most powerful forces against aging, including the ravages of Cultural Stress and depression.” ~Dr. Murad in Conquering Cultural Stress
