" The world is movement , and you cannot be stationary in your attitude towards something that is moving." Henri Cartier Bresson
The world is constantly moving , changing shape, evolving. Lava flows make some countries bigger by inches. Wave erosion make other countries smaller by inches. Borders change , there are mass exoduses due to drought or violence.
Thousands of years ago our ancestors were born to hunt and gather, and have offspring. There lives were constant movement and struggle.
In the 1900's people worked on farms from sun up to sun down in constant movement.
Even our own parents worked much harder than us . We are ultra lazy . We have two many gadgets to make our lives easier. To make us more sedentary .We sit or lay for hours watching television. Or we spend hours in front of the flat screen getting info and playing games .
Let's change this and get moving. The recommendation is 30 minutes of exercise a day. But if you are an office worker who sits all day , you need far more than that. Sitting more than two hours is extremely bad for your circulation and your overall health.
So be part of the world get moving. Get up, move around . Do it a lot. Teach your children and their friends to play the old games the old way. Tag, red rover, hopscotch , double dutch to name a few . Organize a kickball game with the neighborhood kids. Teaching your offspring to move is the best gift you can give them. Hugs ,happiness and healthy living
