SELF-CARE AMONG THE BRAZILIANS

In concluding this week of talking about our recent trip to Brazil as it applies to taking care of ourselves and expanding our horizons I need to talk about Brazilians and exercise.

In Rio, on the beach, there was a continuous parade of joggers, walkers, bikers,and skaters passing by our window from 6AM to well after dark. Those on the beach were similarly engaged morning to night in volley ball or paddle ball. Soccer volley ball is fascinating (look Mom no hands!).

In all of our travels I never seen so many devoted to so much exercise on a regular basis. We can learn from them and within our limitations begin to move about the planet a little bit more and a bit more often.

Bravo Brazil!

By For Now,

Bill
