“At the risk of sounding like a broken record, a new series of studies prompts me to again review the myriad benefits to body, mind and longevity of regular physical activity for people of all ages,” Jane Brody wrote in yesterday’s New York Times “Personal Health” column. “Regular exercise is the only well-established fountain of youth, and it’s free,” she adds.

Leaders’ energy and health affect the energy and health of school communities. An important Leading for Results skill is scheduling on our daily calendars regular periods of physical exercise and honoring those commitments to our health and well-being in the same way we honor  commitments we make to others. If that is not already a habit, there is no better day than today to begin.

    I couldn’t agree more. Regular exercise and scheduling daily is what has saved my life many times over.
