Adaptation For Movement

As humans we are built to move. Whether it’s to gather food or obtain resources for survival, movement is instilled within our DNA.

However Modern human beings move 30% less compared to the 60’s.

Not only does this simple statistic show that we have become inherently lazy as a species, but technological advancements such as Television & Social media have only had a negative impact on our overall health status.

Making Movement A Habit

While taking a walk on occasion is good for you, the real benefits only start to show up when you make it a part of your routine.

Making walking a daily habit is one of the most beneficial things you can do for your mind & body.

Prioritize physical movement and activity during your day. Set aside a specific part of your day where you can go for a short walk and commit to it for atleast 21 days.

Sooner rather than later you will observe the same benefits I did once I made walking a daily habit

  • Greater control of thoughts
  • Emotional stability
  • Improved cognition & attention span

Move Regularly

Activity is key!

Remember that when your body slows down, so does your brain.

With the pandemic having a drastic shift on our overall workflow, we are now glued to our seats more than ever.

Unfortunately sedentary lifestyles are strongly correlated with :

  • Memory loss
  • Low IQ
  • Depreciating attention spans

To combat this your aim should be to move around for atleast one minute each hour.

A simple technological advancement that helps me implement this is my Apple Watch. It gives me hourly reminders to stand up - I aim for 12 stand hours each day.

Daily Walking

Whether it’s with your friends , a loved one or just by yourself, daily walks are one of the best things you can do for your mind and your body.

Did you know that Charles Darwin’s famous theory of evolution was founded during one of his walks.

Just like Darwin , there are millions of ideas generated each day just by putting your body into a state of motion.

An important rule to remember

Walking = Movement + Creativity + Energy

Emotional Elevation

Simply put, walking is a form of movement. Primarily a movement that is only heading forward.

Simultaneously, moving forward is also an emotional state of positive thinking.

There is a strong correlation between these two variables.

Simply put, a short 20 minute walk can help you overcome any emotional and physical barriers.

Walking has shown to increase levels of Endorphins within the body. In fact walking is one of the best methods to combat stressful situations.

The next time you’re feeling low, go for a walk. Without a doubt you will feel better once you are done.

Conflict Avoidance Doesn’t Do You Any Favors

Some form of conflict is a normal part of our personal and professional lives. While it’s OK to never be completely comfortable with confrontation, being able to resolve issues effectively means accepting it as a healthy part of communicating with others.

Disagreeing provides deeper understanding and makes it easier to connect with our friends, partners, and co-workers.

Earth SPINS, Why Don't We?

It spins (rotates) at a speed of about 1,000 miles (1600 kilometers) per hour and orbits around the Sun at a speed of about 67,000 miles (107,000 kilometers) per hour. We do not feel any of this motion because these speeds are constant. The spinning and orbital speeds of Earth stay the same so we do not feel any acceleration or deceleration. You can only feel motion if your speed changes. For example, if you are in a car which is moving at a constant speed on a smooth surface, you will not feel much motion. However, when the car accelerates or when the brakes are applied, you do feel motion.

Feeling out of place

So many people have been involuntarily displaced by the pandemic or could be stuck in living situations they would not choose for themselves.

But this upheaval could also give an opportunity. Many have now realised that various jobs can be done remotely, meaning we might have more geographic flexibility than before. This year could be a chance for you to move to the place where your heart is.
