Healthy Gamification & You

By Dr. Steven Eisenberg

Healthy Gamification & You

You can't get healthier just from reading a biology textbook.

You can't become a supple yoga-meister just from attending a lecture by Deepak Chopra on the health benefits of yoga.

You can't eat better just from Dr. Hyman yelling "Gotta have more veggies!" at you.

But you can eventually touch your toes whilst saying "Omm" when you play at yoga.

When you make downward doggie-dawg fun.

When you release endorphins from standing on your head.

When you play Health-Jeopardy like "I'll take 'Is This Fat Healthy?' for $200, Mark".

Yoga class is social.  So is vegan cooking class.  Like a playground of oneness.

Warrior II pose is you being creative. "I'm a warrior!"

You might fall.

Who cares?

Tom Brady falls in games too.

You get up for the next play.

Measure your health in moments of healthy play.

Win or lose.

Play all out until the end.

Play for the love of the game.
