I, personally, do not even go to the gym. I haven’t been in one in nearly eight years and I’m good with that. Hearing the grunts, and the huffing and the puffing, and looking at all of that metal equipment and grey walls, just never did it for me. I’m not blind to the fact that getting exercise regularly is important, though. But I just never could get on board with my friends who would meet on the boardwalk to power walk, or the ones taking spin classes. Yoga didn’t take with me either. I, personally, am a solo walker. Once I discovered that, I looked forward to getting exercise and I do it more regularly. I honestly think our personality types dictate the types of exercise we like the most. I’m a creative type so, I like that walking is a repetitive motion that doesn’t require much focus (like using machinery or lifting weights would). And I like to do it alone so I can be alone with my thoughts. That’s just me. Here is the best exercise for every personality type.
If you want something that combines some of the elements of a sensory deprivation tank with exercise, get into swimming. When your head is under the water, you feel completely removed from everything. And the free-floating sensation of being in the water has meditative effects, too.
