The human body is an amazingly complex system of bones, joints, muscles, and nerves, designed to work together to accomplish one thing: MOTION.
Remember that motion is life.
Everything about the human body is designed with motion in mind: your delicate nerve fibers stimulate your strong muscles to contract, then your strong muscles contract to move the hard bones, then your hard bones move around structured joints, and your nervous system, which is the brain and spinal cord…
controls it all.
As a matter of fact, research has shown that motion is so critical to your body’s health that a lack of motion has a detrimental affect on everything from your digestion to your emotional state, immune function, your ability to concentrate, how well you sleep and even to how long you live.
If your lifestyle does not include enough MOTION, your body cannot function efficiently.
First, you will not be as physically healthy and will suffer from a wide variety of physical ailments, ranging from headaches to high blood pressure.
Second, you will not be as productive in your life because of reduced energy levels and the lack of ability to mentally focus.
Third, because you have less energy, your activity level will tend to drop off even further over time, creating a downward spiral of reduced energy and less activity until you get to a point where even the demands of a sedentary job leave you physically exhausted at the end of the day.
