Hey there, want to take a seat??
Most of or 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, relaxing trying to unwind and then get to bed. When we wake up in the morning most of us fell like absolute garbage. When reflecting on our past day, the answer is plain as day.
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, are muscles, tendons, ligaments are weak, are cardiovascular system is a mess, the list can go on an on! We’ve trapped our true selves in this mess of a body and most of us are ashamed of it, want to change it, but don’t know where to start.
Making massive changes right out of the gate works for some, however, this ends up being a massive 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 it to operate at optimal levels and we 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!!
