    exercise ourselves better.

    Does this mean "excercise ourselves and as a result, we get better"? In this simple structure, is a result contained?

    mo27)One of my favorite movies is Forrest Gump. It’s the story of a naive young man from Alabama with a good heart who keeps stumbling into success in spite of himself. At one point in the movie, Forrest is frustrated and confused about his life. So what does he do? He starts to run, and keeps on running. After running back and forth from one coast to the other two and a half times, Forrest feels better and is finally able to sort his life out. We all often feel depressed or confused. In times like these, the best thing we can do for ourselves is to do what Forrest did: exercise ourselves better.

    Re: exercise ourselves better.

    Yes. It's similar to "Eat yourself well", meaning that when you're sick, you can help yourself to get better by eating good, healthy foods.
