Sitting in bed for the sixth day with a bad case of bronchitis, the most remote thought in my mind was getting up to exercise for my health and lupus. Scanning through my emails on my Nook tablet, I started reading the latest newsletter from Arthritis Health in Scottsdale, Arizona, and was challenged to check out an intriguing You-Tube video, 23 and 1/2 Hours.
The rheumatology newsletter prompted:
“There is no question!”
“We highly recommend you watch the video “23 1/2 hours” on You-Tube. It is a short animation with some interesting information on the tremendous benefits of exercise. It will be the best 9 minutes you will spend . . . except of course if you are exercising!”
The caption beneath this interesting short You-Tube video describes the subject and speaker:
“A Doctor-Professor answers the old question ‘What is the single best thing we can do for our health’ in a completely new way. Dr. Mike Evans is founder of the Health Design Lab at the Knowledge Institute, an Associate Professor of Family Medicine and Public Health at the University of Toronto, and a staff physician at St. Michael’s Hospital.”
I enjoyed watching this animated fast-moving movie. The hand drawn cartoon illustrations and understandable way Dr. Evans explains the benefits of are easy to follow, entertaining and compelling. This was a worthwhile use of a mere 9 minutes of my day, that would be otherwise spent reading e-mails and surfing the net!
