The Value of Daily Physical Movement

Peter LingIt is a law of nature that movement is progress and life, and that inactivity is decay and death. Physical exercise is as necessary for the comfort of the body as of the mind, it is essential for a rational development, for the preservation of health, and for its restoration when lost. Every one should devote some part of the day, if only a few minutes, to systematic bodily exercise; either in the form of gymnastics or games. But whatever form of exercise is chosen should provide a suitable amount of work for all the different parts of the organism. Peter Ling, Home Gymnastics, 1907
