Why Movement Matters So Much

All machines would prefer to do the job for which they were created, rather than rust in the shed. You body is no different.  It want to move and groove as much as it can.  So get up and get going!  Whatever it is your body likes to and can do, do it!  And don’t forget to breathe while you’re at it…I’m talking big huge, deep meaningful, powerful, loud, intoxicating breaths!

Even if you don’t have the time, money, or desire for a fitness club, get out there and move that thing.  Whatever it is you do in a day, do it more, shake in your seat if you have to, just move!!  Should I get into the studies about how movement is the key to health and longevity?  There is plenty of evidence on the benefits of exercise and chances are we’ve all heard it over and over again.  Exercise release hormones called Endorphins that are feel good receptors in our brains, so it can help relieve stress, combat anxiety and depression.  Without exercise, the chances of reversing many of the obesity-related diseases we’ve discussed, including Type 2 Diabetes are minimal.  You can’t just eat right to get healthy and you can’t just exercise to get healthy.  It’s a two way street; you have to incorporate both.  Research even shows that regular exercise; four to six days a week reduces the length and intensity of menopause symptoms.
