Most people don’t get enough exercise. This we know. Even those who do participate in regular exercise may not be getting enough.
The human body is designed to move. We’re not designed to sit or lie around for the majority of the day. I’m not sure how some people deal with their jobs. Not in regard to the work they do, but more so the lack of work they’re exposed to.
“In my opinion even some people who train in CrossFit should be considered sedentary.”
Working hard for an hour a day and not moving for the other twenty-three, simply isn’t good enough. We need to be better. We need to move more! I understand that this might sound like a chore to some. It’s not. It’s something beautiful that you can create. We call it play.
Play comes in many forms except most adults have long forgotten how to do it. It isn’t difficult. Think back to when you were younger. Playing wasn’t about what you were doing, but about the fact that you were doing something. That was play. It’s the same now as it was then. Play comes in the form of sport, yes, but also in the form of exploring and moving through our world. Maybe it’s running around with your dog. Maybe it’s goofing around dancing with our children. Remember the important part isn’t what you do…just do something that makes you feel alive.
