How would it feel not moving your hands or legs or mouth for the matter?
The blood in the veins move, our hearts don’t stop, kidneys keep cleansing, breath keeps circulating, thoughts keep flowing in and out and nothing stops to move.
Famed British Primatologist and anthropologist Richard Wrangham research indicates early humans walked around 15 kilometers (20000 steps) everyday over vast mountain, jungles and waterways.
1 :: We moved… A lot! We moved and the process helped us learn new tricks to overcome newer ailments, improve the hunting skills, learnt to built shelters, fire, learnt to give birth and nurture children. Everything was an exploration; a new learning. As we moved, we learnt, our horizons expanded.
2 :: We evolved! BUT the last few decades has changed this. Million of years of evolution has turned turtle. Life has turned sedentary. In fact, in the last 25 years, most humans who were walking 15000 steps a day are walking just 2500 steps a day.
3 :: We have stopped moving! Bodies have stopped moving yet the Brains are constantly evolving. This Body Brain disconnect has caused a 21st century phenomena we now call Lifestyle Burnout.
Burnout and Lifestyle related ailments have became the new age buzzword. In fact, 90% of the 21st century health issues can be attributed to this rapidly changing life.
4 :: We can make a comeback! We can turn Life back to its natural setting. No! We don’t have to go on an exploration to the unknown lands. All we need is to get on our feet, BREATHE and Move…
In fact, the Great Indian Yoga master B.K.S. Iyenger, fitness Guru Jack La Lanne, Golfer Ben Hogan and others reached greatness by optimising their body, breath and brain coordination by simply keeping themselves moving.
