Most of our day is spent sitting. We wake up in the morning, get ready for work, get in our cars, trains, planes and sit. This is usually about an hour or so for most of us. Then we get to work and we sit, another 8-12 hours, with maybe a break or two in-between where we eat our lunch and most likely sit. When we are done with our day at work, we get back in our vehicles and sit another hour on the commute home. By the time we reach home we are absolutely exhausted, we’ve been sitting all day, stressing and sitting, in the car and at work! Then, what do we do when we get home, we sit more, relax, trying to unwind and then get to bed. When we wake up in the morning many of us feel like absolute garbage.
We don’t really realize what we are doing to our bodies until it is too late, all the sitting and stressing eventually catches up and we either have a mental blowout on the road, at work, or at home. What we have also done is train our bodies to sit. Our posture is terrible, muscles, tendons, ligaments are weak, the list can go on and on! We’ve trapped ourselves in this mess of a body and many of us want to change, but don’t know where to start.
Making massive changes right out of the gate works for some, however, this ends up being a huge mistake which leads to failure. The key is to make small changes incrementally throughout the day. Train your body to become the awesome machine that it is. The beautiful thing about our bodies is that when we tell our bodies it needs to operate at optimal levels and we start to train our bodies that way. It responds!! So get up and get moving. That wonderful physical spirit is waiting to get unleashed upon this world!
