THE CONCRETE JUNGLE

At the moment I live in a densely populated, frenetic metropolis. I call it, “The Concrete Jungle”, and it doesn’t seem to be stopping anytime soon from expanding…..up.

jun gle
noun
a situation or place of bewildering complexity or brutal competitiveness.

The noise, crowds, smells, and all around chaos combine to fuel that “brutal competitiveness”. It takes strength to go about the daily grind. Physical AND mental.

The proven benefits of regular exercise are numerous. Besides helping prevent obesity, illness and chronic conditions, regular exercise helps to keep us alert. Mentally strong. For me, it’s lifting weights. For others it may be jogging or yoga.

The Greeks, who are considered the inventors of organized fitness and with whom I am fascinated with, believed simply that a strong body equalled a strong mind.

They are considered “The Thinkers”.

So like a lion in the Serengeti, be alert, be active…

Be strong.
