Learning from the Dutch

October 5, 2012

Erin Farber has a list of “10 Things Americans can Learn from Amsterdammers.”  Number 6:

Integrate exercise into your everyday routine. This goes hand-in-hand with eating in moderation. Part of the reason the Dutch manage to stay so fit is because they cycle everywhere, come rain or shine (well, more like rain and rain). Exercise isn’t a chore — something you dread and have to squeeze into your busy schedule — it is simply a means of getting to work (even if you’re a CEO!), picking up the kids from daycare, or avoiding driving home in your car after one too many Heinekens.

When everything is exercise nothing is exercise.

    I started biking more for the exercise, and now it’s just something I love to do that gets me where I need to be, usually more conveniently than any other mode of transportation (based on where I live).
