The human body is an incredible and amazing complex system of bones, joints, muscles, and nerves, designed to work together to accomplish one thing: motion. Remember that motion is life. Everything about the human body is designed with motion in mind: nerve fibers stimulate the muscles to contract, muscles contract to move the bones, bones move around joints, and the nerve system controls everything.
As a matter of fact, research has shown that motion is so critical to our body's health that a lack of motion has a detrimental affect on everything from digestion to our emotional state, immune function, our ability to concentrate, how well we sleep and to even how long we live. If your lifestyle does not include enough motion, your body cannot function efficiently. First, you will not be as physically healthy and will suffer from a wide variety of physical conditions, ranging from headaches to high blood pressure. Second, you will not be as productive in your life because of reduced energy levels and the lack of ability to focus mentally. Third, because you have less energy, your activity level will tend to decrease even more over time, creating a downward spiral to a point where even the demands of a sedentary job leave you physically exhausted at the end of the day.
Turn off your televisions, get up, go outside and put your body in motion. Go see your chiropractor and get your spine moving and healthy. Your body will thank you for it.
