“Early movement experiences are beneficial to optimal brain development,” Gabbard states in a study. Every learning, no matter how abstract it is, is physical. If you stop a child from moving, you are also depriving his or her optimal capabilities to learn. This is how crucial movement is.
Movement is essential for life. Our ancestors moved to hunt, gather woods, create fire, swim, walk etc. Movement is human’s nature from the very beginning. Sadly, with the advent of technology there has been some staggering changes, “In less than two generations, physical activity has dropped by 20% in the U.K. and 32% in the U.S. In China, the drop is 45% in less than one generation. Vehicles, machines and technology now do our moving for us. What we do in our leisure time doesn’t come close to making up for what we’ve lost.”
Because of technology, everything is made easier and more accessible. There are times that we don’t even need to lift a finger to get a job done. That is how life is for a modern person. But this must change. Some people find exercise as a chance to move. But if done for the purpose of aesthetics and physical beauty. And yes, exercise is movement. No matter what you choose to do, choose to move. Exercise is optional but movement is essential.
The human body is designed to move. If you train your body to move every day, it will remain healthy. In Australia, more than half of all adults are not active enough. If you want a healthy body and wellbeing, stay physically active and limit sedentary behaviour. It is better to do any physical activity rather than do nothing.
Make movement a part of your healthy lifestyle and start seeing improvements in your health, mental health, and emotional well-being. Here are some of the reasons why movement is essential to the human body:
- To boosting the immune system
- To fight chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and stroke
- To boost physical strength, flexibility, and endurance
- To improve sleeping pattern
- To help release feel-good hormones
- To fire off your nervous system
- To give your brain energy
It is essential to keep moving in order to help your brain and body work at its optimum. A sedentary lifestyle is literally killing us. It is either you move it or you lose it. Reduced movement will result in reduced muscles’ size, strength, and function. Live life as it should be. Allow natural movements for strength, development, maintenance, and improvement of body functions.
