Our bodies are designed to move, every day. Movement helps pump our blood and get our minds working. Regular movement makes us feel better, live longer, and do more. Movement is a virtuous cycle: the more you move the more you want to move and the easier moving becomes.
Unfortunately, modern life has taken a toll on our movement. Tens of centuries ago, Paleolithic humans needed to constantly hunt and gather to collect the items they needed to survive. People of the agricultural era also worked long days in fields to secure a living. Today, however, technology has replaced much of the physical work people used to do every day. While that’s a great benefit in many ways, it has sapped the movement our bodies need to stay healthy.
