Environmentalists live for the day we will discover a fuel source that is naturally replenished. In a personal way, each of us is literally standing on our own wellspring of renewable energy—our feet. All we need to do is get them moving. According to research, regular exercise not only alleviates fatigue but is invigorating. So dreading the effort you'll expend at the gym or sweating to exhaustion is misguided; instead, look forward to the renewed energy you'll gain.
