Clothing has long been a way for people to express themselves and I certainly look good in a black suit. We go to our closets each day to prepare for our days but even before that we take the time to select certain styles, drive to our favorite stores to purchase these items and tend to the process of washing and drying them. We even pay cleaners to take care of our precious outfits. There are massive industries built around just clothing.
But what if none of this existed and it was perfectly acceptable by society to be nude all of the time? Now understand that I don’t agree with this idea, but I am trying to make a point here. How would you dress if you had to present yourself to the world completely nude?
Would you watch the things you ate each day to make sure that you didn’t build up excess fat? Would you find a workout plan that keeps your body toned and looking good? Would you spend the same type of energy on taking care of your body as you do taking care of your clothes? Our new fashion designers would be fitness trainers and ironing would be replaced with workout time.
I can just assume that for most people the answers to these questions would be “Yes”. If this is the case then why wouldn’t it be just as important to present yourself before your mirror in the morning after you get out of the shower with the same enthusiasm. Aren’t you just as important if not more than strangers you walk past each day?
I am working my legs today and I often forget about just how important it actually is to keep these two large parts of my body in tip top shape. It can be too easy to not challenge the muscles in your legs as we tend to neglect them as we are working on things like our abs, arms and chest. I feel that a good leg workout is just as important if not more for battling Type II Diabetes as we are using large muscles to work the removal of sugar from our bloodstreams. I also love how I look in a pair of shorts.
