All tissues in the body including the nervous system rely on movement for health.
The most common causes of mortality, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, and neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s, are reduced by a multiple of five through regular exercise.
Active fit people not only live an average of 8 to 10 years longer, but they are healthier and maintain their physical function and independence later in life (Attia P 2023).
If you want to feel good, remain healthy, and be around for a while to enjoy it, then maintaining your fitness is a necessary requirement.
Regular exercise is critical, but science is showing there is more to it than just moving.
There is an ever-growing body of research showing injuries and diminished physical capability have more to do with the nervous system than muscles and joints.
That is not to say individual components such as mobility, strength, etc. aren’t an important part of the equation, but the key is how well it works together in creating quality movement.
To give a computer metaphor it’s not the integrity of hardware but how well the “Software” is working which makes the difference.
What you do now will determine what you can and will do later.
Movement skills are developed from the inside out and easier to more complex.
The area of focus depends on what you have to do on a basis as well as what you want to be able to do now and in the future.
Asking yourself what work and family life requires, as well as what you enjoy regarding recreation as you get older. If you want to be able to hike and garden then starting now to develop the skills is required.
This is not commonly well understood nor is it a strength of most exercise methods. In fact, most fitness programs address it only indirectly.
Learning to “Move Well” is critical to staying healthy and feeling good over the long haul.
