In our final episode we lift the curtain a bit and talk about what motivates "lifestyle medicine" doctors like host Eddie Phillips, and offer resources for how to continue on your fitness journey.
Today's episode of Magic Pill is totally superficial: it's not about how we feel, it's about how we look.
New ideas are likelier to occur to us when we're moving than when we're not. We take a look at Beethoven's daily routine as an example.
We take a small step towards combating all the the fitness misinformation that's floating around out there.
What do you do if where you live and work gets in the way of moving more? From biking to walking groups and other special programs, we look at ways to get around those barriers.
Fear -- of death, pain, disease -- isn't the best motivator. But for a lot of us, it's what keeps us committed to exercise.
It's a whole lot easier to exercise if it's fun. We look at how the meaning physical activity changes as you age and how to reclaim the fun.
From endometriosis to fibromyalgia to arthritis, exercise has been shown to help with all sorts of pain conditions -- and may even help increase pain tolerance.
The playground workout is part of the "lifestyle exercise" concept of fitting exercise into your life where and when you can.
We don't stop moving because we age, we age because we stop moving. Today Magic Pill looks at how we can age better.
