More Movement, More Energy

Do you sometimes feel sluggish, tired, achy, sore or have low energy? You could be suffering from some basic physical problems. If you sit still for long hours in your car, at your job or at home watching TV, you are hurting your body over time. Without frequent movement, your muscles waste away, joints become stiff and normal chemical processes in your body change. In fact, your circulation and lymphatic systems slow down causing a backup of toxic wastes, such as cholesterol, that are normally produced and excreted. There are many studies that show changes occur in the human body with less movement. Lack of movement and poor posture are the most frequent causes of low back pain, headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain and pain in the hips / knees or legs. Slumped posture actually changes the shape of your spine, closes the joints of your shoulders, tightens the tissues

around the hips and produces a host of other problems. “There is one fundamental rule of the human body; it was made to move!” Sometimes people find themselves not moving like they use to or having difficulty moving due to pain. The restriction in movement has the potential to lead to other health problems. To be healthy, a big emphasis needs to be placed on movement.
