The Power of Movement..
If Your Not Moving, You’re Standing Still
Uriia Underhill, B.Sc.
As the human body begins to age its desire for physical activity decreases as well as the need to complete hard strenuous tasks. In today’s society it also seems that current work trends have contributed to the decreased number of people who engage in daily physical activity. One example of a job lacking physical activity would be a 9-5-desk job.
People who work a desk job are more prone to stoke risks, heart attack and overall unhealthier lifestyle due to the lack of physical activity (Huffington Post, 2012). It seems like the jobs that are currently in demand have society sitting around which can lead to a life that is almost completely sedentary. Movement keeps our body in good working order; the machine must remain in motion in order to prevent rust!
