Exercise in Daily Life

With few exceptions (such as farm work, or running from the neighbor's dog), our needs to move with vigor are usually few. Our cars, trains, and planes, plus the countless laborsaving devices that surround us, do the work for us.

While these conveniences may lighten the load, they also discourage us from moving. The words of John F. Kennedy, spoken in the early 1960s, still apply today: ". . . the labor of the human body is rapidly being engineered out of working life."

To counteract this continuing trend, we need to focus on integrating movement into our daily lifestyle. Unless we consciously seek out ways to engineer exercise back into our daily life - such as taking the stairs, parking at the far end of the parking lot, or riding a bike for short errands - we will unconsciously continue to follow the herd and remain sedentary.
