"When on-going tasks act like ping pong balls bouncing around in my head from mommy duties to work commitments to household tasks, it is all the more reason to get out and move. A brisk walk helps slow or stop the busyness of life and the ping pong balls begin to settle."

"Gotta keep it movin'
"After running 11 kilometers on a beautiful winter day in Edmonton, it's the feeling of arriving home and knowing that you can do anything - fast or slow, you just have to put one foot in front of the other. Enjoy the hours that life puts in front of you - that's why I move."
"Swimming is normal for me. I'm relaxed. I'm comfortable, and I know my surroundings. It's my home."

"[She] just moved...and she kept that habit going for her whole life. And we are now learning from the research that is the way you gotta do it - You just have to stay in motion."
"I do yoga so that I can stay flexible enough to kick my own arse if necessary."
"I workout because it is my hour to find balance in my life and focus on me."
"Physical fitness is not only one of the most important keys to a healthy body, it is the basis of dynamic and creative intellectual activity."
"I move to inspire change... to inspire growth. To spread joy and loving kindness in the world. I move to first and foremost inspire this within myself. This change and this growth allows me to then be a beacon of light in order to help others begin to move, begin to grow. Or in other words, to put into action what it is that they need to do to fully realize and actuate their full potential and purpose in life. Without this movement there is no action, and without action there can be no love. Love can be the action of giving or expressing yourself in a way which helps others and results in that feeling of joy that we so often associate with love. Therefore, to move is to love, and I move because I love."
