Why is it so important to keep moving? We all see the images of great looking people who have killer abs or just flat out great curves..but what can we say about the health of the every day person?

Well leading a sedentary lifestyle has many downsides but does anything actually happen to your body really just from not being active? You bet something happens…and its NOT good.

The writers for the NY Times covered the issue well here http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2012/02/29/why-its-so-important-to-keep-moving/?src=me&ref=health

Just taking people who were normally active per week and forcing them to essentially stay inactive, their bodies showed less drastic changes in blood sugar spikes. Their metabolism was still able to compensate for periods of poor diet and inactivity. However, for those that consistently live on a sedentary plane, they showed much more drastric increases in blood sugar. That just makes you hungry…you eat more etc. Your muscles dont grow hence they cant help control tose spikes since they are not requiring sugar.

Continuing a sedentary lifestyle predisposes you to heart disease and perhaps many other conditions simply because…YOU ARENT moving. What about controlling your cholesterol? What happens to your repiratory rate? These are all factors to think about. Hey try and do something…walk, jump rope, run, do something on those work breaks….KEEP MOVING. Your body will help you if you help it
