I have been thinking that one of the benefits of exercise is in the meditative aspects. To quote Stuart Brown, a psychologist researching the benefits of play activities in humans, “Well, I give myself over at least three or four hours a day to what, for an old guy, is spontaneous free play. It, you know, it could be reading or what I would call as extremely low-quality rogue tennis, hiking, playing with grandchildren. But I, you know, if a day goes by and I haven’t, at this age, had some sense of timelessness and freedom and purposelessness, I’ll probably be kind of ratty by suppertime.”
The idea of “timelessness,” and of “purposelessness” experienced during exercise/play are similar to what is sought in meditative practices (only thinking about the here and now).
Thank you for sharing that great perspective. I agree – I see too many burn out from all the “rules” and forget to just enjoy moving. Movement as meditation is – in my eyes – ideal!
