Move Your Body
The popular song by international recording star, Beyoncé, "move your body," is exactly what our bodies were meant to do. We are designed to move, jump, run, walk, pull, and push.
Unfortunately, the greater majority of the population is sedentary. People simply do not “move” or exercise enough to stay healthy. Exercise is a tremendous avenue to negate disease, strengthen the immune system to limit sickness, and keep the joints and tissues strong and supple. Remarkably, this can be achieved by an exercise regimen that lasts as little as 15-30 minutes per day. How you schedule those 15-30 minutes within your daily activities can be very convenient for you if you manage your time wisely.
One of the primary foundations of life is to move your body to achieve high levels of physical fitness. From an evolutionary perspective, our bodies are NOT made to remain sedentary, contrarily, they are made to move. Before we evolved into modern times, we had to search and hunt for our food. As we were doing this and when faced with danger, we had to fight or flee whatever animals were preying on us.
Our bodies are programmed to move, this is in our DNA. The strength and vitality of our cells depend upon movement. If not, degradation will be the end result of our cellular structures. The results of the breaking down of tissues is sickness, disease and even certain cancers that can ravage through the body with devastating results.
The human body is an incredible device and it adapts to any demand placed upon it, either positively or negatively. Movement and working the body physically causes it to adapt to those demands by growing more flexible, increase strength, improve condition, and positively stimulate the physiological, emotional, and mental components in our lives.
The negative demand is lack of movement because the body will always adapt negatively. This is synonymous with the degradation of the body and the ramifications can be destructive.
