The Reality of Running Blog Series Day 54:
“I didn't understand it at the time, but our bodies need attention and encouragement as much as our minds. They are not meant to be kept quiet, preserved like a specimen in a jar. We are meant to move. When we forget that we are not just intellectual, emotional, and spiritual beings, but also animals, we do so at our peril.” .
Our bodies are meant to move. Whatever you do, walk, jog, lift, run, stretch, skip – just get out there and move. Your body is meant to do so and it is good for you.
Every morning, no matter how I am feeling I try to get out and move. Most morning, as you all know it is a run for me – but it really does awaken my mind and set the tone for the day.
Find something that requires you to move – your entire body – do it daily – become consistent with your routine and start to watch your life change!
