watching “first reformed”. i began doing sit-ups because my body was feeling painful. i did a few and felt a slight, but noticeable, improvement in my clarity of perception and overall well-being. my mind began thinking that i should eat better and exercize more.
just after I thought this, near the 1 hour mark of the film, ethan hawke’s character says in a bit of narration “it’s amazing the simple, curative power of exercise. it’s god given.”
