Exercising is good to get rid of the excess of energy and mainly keep fit.
2020 Decade of Health & Wellbeing is a great initiative.
"...Decade of Health and Wellbeing is about encouraging people to build these ways into their daily routines and potentially add 7.5 years to their life expectancy..."
When you are sitting down 7.5 hours a day by a desk you need to exercise. They are various options and it doesn't need to be intense.
Some people would rather go for a Yoga or Pilates session, which boost energy and make your muscles relax and stonger at the same time. Of course, it is also a spiritual activity...but some prefer more powerful activities and like to feel the benefit of it straight away.
Creating a community is important. It is not a club but a social meet-up where usually all are welcome to bring ideas and participate.
Here is also the November 2012 events calendar.
Eating healthy is a lifestyle - it should be natural thinking - but having regular physical exercises would complete the entire process. Everyone’s needs are different, of course! Health insurance is also there to give you the right cover in case treatments are needed after a fall or just a light injury.
More and more cycling clubs and groups are emerging. Is this a consequence of last Summer sporting event based in London? Probably... but it is not a trend but more a movement related to wellbeing, efforts, exercising and having fun with others in the open air.
There are almost wild races organised here and there via online networks: read more about Bristol-Bath Tunnel sprint.
Being fit is good as long as it doesn't become an obsession and an extreme activity. It should stay a way to have fun and keep in good shape in the first place. Becoming expert in a category is good too so newcomers would have an example to follow - reaching a goal. But never take it too seriously or you would fall in this section where you could be seen as a body workout fitness fanatic. Like everything, it is about finding the right balance between effort, wellness and relaxation.
