I fully agree! While I do have chronic tendonitus, I am able to stay
active partially because I get lots of exercise. I do not own a car and
live in an inner city where everything I need in life is within an easy
walk. I get a lot of exercise as a metter of course, without having to
think about it, and it pays off in better health and, in general,
"feeling good" most of the day. Although in some ways I have a
high-stress job, I am rarely stressed out or depressed; there is no
"down" in the middle of the day.

I even walk (one way!) to work, although it's an hour-and-twenty-minute
effort. A long time, but I feel so much better when I've done it (and
so much worse when, for some reason, I can't) that it is more than worth
it. Many commuters I know spend just as much time sitting in traffic,
or "running errends": no wonder people are depressed! My advice to
dancers: move someplace you can walk and throw away the car. And,
you'll be doing the environment as much good as you do yourself.
