I was active all day moving things around at the barn, fixing fence, playing with the horses, walking dogs, cleaning and even cooking. One of the biggest inspirations I am getting from Mark Sisson's book about the primal diet is not about diet at all but about the concept of play. Whether it is making work play or playing with animals or playing with people, playfulness is underestimated for most adults. Play allows us to get exercise phyically but relax mentally and emotionally. Not all exercise routines qualify as relaxing. Exercising outside also helped me get some Vitamin D, another important requirement for health.
