As the founder of barre3, I’m the last person you’d expect to say that exercise isn’t the answer. Well, let me explain. When it comes to whole-body health, exercise is an important part of the equation, but it's not the end-all-be-all.
Exercise becomes stressful and a chore when we view it as the answer to getting results. Healthy living is about nourishing your body in different ways. That includes exercise, but it also includes enjoying whole foods and cultivating strong relationships. It’s about practicing balance, not perfection, and about nurturing yourself as fully as you nurture others. So, when is exercise NOT the answer?
