How to find and evaluate sources of knowledge
Our bodies move all the time. Or, rather, we are loading our cells all the time, even when we are in a chair or bed at night. But many of our loads are static. We call the state of being loaded in one position for a long time sedentary.
Sedentarism is an unintended consequence of other ways we identify our culture: like being“well developed” or “technologically progressive,” etc.
Everyone will have to think about ways to move more. For example, walking more can be a good program to improve your physical fitness levels.
Aim for 100 steps per minute. If you're just getting started, your fitness-making pace might be slower. On the other hand, if you're already used to walking at 100 steps per minute, you might need to walk faster.
If you can't walk faster than 100 steps per minute, choose uphill or staired routes, or carry a load to challenge your fitness level.
"Sedentary culture" is currently part of the broader, overarching culture. But subcultures, including our individual culture, can also be sedentary. We would be moving more if society was set up to encourage or even require us to move more.
However, the most immediate benefits can be found in changing our personal culture, which can grow into a dynamic family culture. For example, the whole family can sign up for a running race.
Measuring your steps per minute can be boring. One way to challenge your pace is to use a song's beats-per-minute (bpm) as your stepping-rate guide.
Beyonce’s "Crazy in Love" and Stevie Wonder's "Superstition" are 100 bpm songs. Try some 120 bpm songs for comparison, such as "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" by Whitney Houston, "Enter Sandman" by Metallica, or "Don’t Stop Believin'" by Journey.
Check your pace by humming a few bars to see how your steps measure out. Spotify has playlists that organise songs by bpm.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
