The power of movement.
In our fast-paced world with gadgets, gizmos and computers, we’re often put in a position where we don’t need to move a whole lot for long periods of time. Our worlds are designed with ultimate convenience in mind. They’re designed to make things as “easy” for us as possible, for us to get things done with the “least” amount of effort expended.
Think about how often you sit hunched over in front of your computer, or how long you’ll crash on the couch at the end of your workday. Or how about those long commutes on planes, trains or automobiles?
Over time, with this consistent sedentary behaviour, you’ll more than likely start feeling those little aches and pains all over, those creaking joints, those tight muscles, and the diffuse soreness in various body parts. It’ll get harder to go up and down a set of stairs without huffing and puffing to catch your breath. Carrying your groceries will feel like you’ve entered a powerlifting meet.
All of these add up and if ignored for too long, eventually someone has to pay the piper. And by that time, the piper is asking for a king’s ransom.
So how do you avoid needing to pay the piper?
If there’s one thing you should be doing a bit more of every day it’s this: moving.
That’s it. It is that simple. Don’t make it complicated, just get it done.
This could mean simply taking the stairs instead of the elevator at work. Or it could mean going for a brisk 30 minute walk during your lunch hour instead of sitting for the full hour. In even more basic terms, it could mean just taking a few really deep breaths while at your desk or just making sure you change your postures every 15 minutes while you’re working away.
Yours in movement.
