I've found that exercise is pretty beneficial for my mental health, which then benefits my Buddhist practice; both with meditation and being mindful in everyday life. Also, it was through exercising and getting fit that I learnt self-discipline, which has been beneficial for my practice as well.

یہ نمائش سراب کی سی ہے

hasti apni habaab ki si hai
yeh numaaish saraab ki si hai

This display is like an illusion

Those who, even with distracted minds,
Entered a stupa compound
And chanted but once, “Namo Buddhaya!”
Have certainly attained the path of the buddhas.

-Lotus Sutra, Expedient Means Chapter

There are beings with little dust in their eyes who are falling away because they do not hear the Dhamma. There will be those who will understand the Dhamma.
