Get ready to learn what lack of movement is doing to our bodies and our health - and how to fix the problem once and for all. Getting yourself up and moving is easier than you think, and it comes with huge side benefits like enhanced productivity, creativity, and sense of well-being. We know the excuses – “I don’t have time,” “it hurts to exercise or move too much,” and “I don’t know how,” just to name a few. We know we should do it, but we manage to talk ourselves out of it. Contrast that with your car: you follow the maintenance schedule, change the oil, and get new tires, because you know if you don’t you will pay dearly later. But for some reason, when it comes to our bodies we choose to avoid doing what’s necessary. All of us were issued only one body. It’s our transport vehicle through life, and the extent we choose to take care of it will, to a large degree, dictate how well we move through life and maximize the gift we were given. Getting back on track does not require hours at the gym. It’s a matter of choosing your time and wisely approaching the challenge of unsitting yourself.
