It's often said "what you put in is what you get out." And when it comes to our physical bodies this saying certainly applies.... The better the quality of nutrition and diet, the better our output. In fact, according to the World Health Organization. The right foods can increase brainpower, motivation, and overall productivity by up to 20 percent.
Performance in anything (work or play) can be described as an equation of three factors - motivation + skill/knowledge + opportunity. And you have to have all three in some degree.
Motivation is having the drive or desire to do something... and when things are a little challenging or uncomfortable (like starting an exercise programme when we've been sedentary for a while) we need a pretty big bucket load of this stuff. But this isn't what this article is about! Likewise this article isn't about addressing the physical skills / knowledge required to get moving.
It's about creating the opportunity for exercise.
