There are three things we have to have in order to be healthy: Air, food, and water. Together, air, food and water give us life. It is air that feeds us oxygen which keeps all our cells alive. It is food that feeds us nutrients which keeps all our cells alive. It is water that keeps us hydrated, which keeps all our cells alive. Without these three things, we are toast, dried up on a path of destruction.
As essential as air, water and food are, our bodies still need one thing that may be just as essential: Movement! Our movement and the movement of others around us also brings nourishment to our bodies. In fact, the movements we make and the movements we receive can nourish our brains just like the nutrients from food does. Without movement, without information generated from movement that feeds the brain, the brain will become malnourished and starve. If the brain begins to starve and deteriorate, the body will also lose its resiliency and it, too, will break down.
In order to move their must be communication between our brain and our muscles. Feed the brain well…feed the body well. Breathe deeply and often…oxygen feeds cells! Move deeply and often…movement feeds our soul!
The world we live in today can be harsh. Hard work, long days, stress…
Life is life…
It is our responsibility to make the most of our lives. Make a healthy life a priority. Eat well…plants, veggies, fresh fruit….daily. Move often! Humans are made to move…get up and and do it! Stand up at your desk, walk down the hall, walk around the building after lunch. Make yourself do this.
I am signing off now…time for my walk before I head to the gym and the office. Let’s have a good day!
