You are absolutely right. So often, when we quit smoking it leads to healthier choices in other areas of our lives.
I currently have some health issues that prevent me from running or really exerting myself in any way. However, last Christmas I bought myself a Fitbit, and I wear it every day. What I was most interested in was tracking how many steps I take each day. I find that my Fitbit motivates me to get moving, even when I don't particularly feel like it. After I quit smoking, I decided to work on being more active, because for the first time in years, I actually had enough breath to do things like climb a flight of stairs without gasping for air. You don't have to become an athlete or anything. It's the little things, like walking a little longer, that make a difference. And I wouldn't have even considered that if I hadn't quit smoking.
Quitting smoking was the best decision I have ever made.
