For blood type B's.

It lists the following options for exercising/stress relief

Aerobics
Tennis
Martial arts
Calistehenics
Hiking
Cycling
Swimming
Brisk walking
Jogging
Weight training
Golf
Tai Chi
Hatha Yoga


Can we count squash also among the list, as i happen to enjoy squash more than some of the other options, and it's extremely intense as well.

Sure.

Lists in books can never be 100% inclusive. Just use the lists to get an idea of what type of exercise you might want to do.

Welcome Yankydoodle:

I don't know your age or conditioning, but there's a wide panoply (as you can see) of types of exercise good for Bs, from calm/mental (such as TaiChi) to the more strenuous (Calisthenics, Aerobics).

Why not try all that interest you and then decide which you like?

As for squash, it's a terrific workout for someone enjoying its speed and intensity, as well as the one-on-one dynamic competition. I wouldn't overdo it -- I associate it more with the O's need for its various components, including sweating.

I used to play tennis - almost exclusively outdoors - and it satisfied my desire for a mental game that was social and outdoors in the elements. But there was a time and place for that sport in my overall life trajectory, so......Remain flexible, and go where the spirit moves you!  :)
