I’ve started a bit of a fitness jag, I put on some weight in corona time and thought I would take it off again. So I have installed a fitness app on my iPhone for exercise programs and am making use of bicycles and things, and have put together a program of diet and exercise.
But I notice that all this effort is very much part of the culture of health and beauty. The gyms are still all closed over here, but from what I recall of when I was a regular some years ago there was a whole thing around ‘active wear’ clothing and trainers and the right look.
So I was wondering how do you combine body maintenance with Buddhism? Especially on the motivation front?
