Why Movement Matters
Your body LOVES to move … right down to its smallest molecules!
In fact, we’re wired for it … and your health depends on it.
Here’s a shocking statistic for you:
“In less than two generations, physical activity dropped by 20% in the U.K. and 32% in the U.S. In China, the drop is 45% in less than one generation.” - designedtomove.org
Over the next few weeks I’ll be talking about how important it really is to take care of your body and muscles … and this goes far beyond the results you see in the mirror when you workout!
The number one reason I exercise is for my mental health. I'm happier, more creative, and more energetic with I exercise!
Moving your body on a regular basis helps everything from your energy levels, emotions, relationships and ability to learn, to your overall quality of life.
And ... contrary to popular belief, the most successful, highest performing people get exercise on a regular basis.
Here’s just a short list of how movement (walking, dancing, gardening, exercising, doing chores, etc.) has huge payoffs for you:
Here’s a little trivia you can even share with your friends:
How much faster can you recover from a common cold if you exercise on a regular basis?
Answer: Your chances of coming down with a cold are cut in half!
It’s true! A study of 1,000 people found people who were active 5 or more days a week were 50% less likely to come down with a cold over a 3-month period. And if they did come down with a cold, their symptoms were about 40% less severe.
Pretty amazing, right?
The great thing about it is that pretty much all forms of movement can help you – stretching, walking, even conquering a mountain of laundry!
Here’s a challenge for you …
Level 1: Every day this week, set a timer for 15-20 minutes and move nonstop.
This could be a quick workout, a brisk walk, or even a fast & furious cleaning session in your home. To make it more fun, turn on some music to make it happen!
We spend at least 2 sessions in High Performance Coaching program learning how to Generate Energy by moving your body often!
Level 2: Join a FREE week at a gym or studio!
Many gyms open up a limited number of spots to help YOU get your body moving. Even if you’re a complete beginner, this would be absolutely perfect for you to get the momentum going. You can take a gym or studio for a test drive!
