Think about how often you move your body

December 8, 2008

When you really think about it,  everything starts with movement.  From birth,  your first breath, with the movement of oxygen to your lungs.  Your cry,  and the flailing of your limbs.  Until death,  ending with your final breath.

In between,  no matter what you do, movement is involved.  Simple things like reaching for something to drink, tying shoes,  putting on a shirt,  walking, looking up, down or sideways,  turning over in bed.  There is nothing we do that does not involve the ability to move some part of our body, unless god forbid, we are paralyzed.

Don’t you agree that is just makes sense that being more in tune and connected to your body, how it moves and knowing how each movement feels when would make life easier to do? Taking a step off a curb,  walking on an even surface, carrying an unbalanced load,  picking up your baby, softly petting  your cat (or dog),  making love, meditating,  throwing a ball,  or whatever it is you want to do.  

The mind is an amazing thing.  The way it takes the images you see, (upside down no less) and co-ordinates them with the feeling in your feet and hips to allow you to navigate whatever path you happen to be walking.  flat ground, a rocky path, a grassy fairway, stairs, curbs,  a basketball or tennis court,  navigating around furniture while cleaning. 

I like to ask this question:  if there was a simple way to improve the way you move, increase you ability to live life better than you do today, would you do it?  And if not, why?

    You ask. . . If there was a simple way to improve the way you move, increase your ability to live life better than you do today, would you do it? I answer YES! Without movement your body will for all intensive purposes crumble. You are given a body to build on like building blocks and you can choose to keep building to remain stagnent. I choose to remain moving and buidling a strong foundation (core) so I can live my life to the fullest.
