“Although exercising may be the last thing you feel like doing when you are tired, regular exercise is essential for building vitality…Yoga and tai chi are excellent forms of exercise to supplement a walking program. Both help to build stores of vitality by improving breathing, oxygenating cells, increasing circulation, stretching the muscles, enhancing the function of organs and glands, and relieving physical tension. In addition, the slow, meditative movements of yoga and tai chi help to calm the mind and emotions.” (p.116).
