The First Steps to the Everyday Exercise Revolution (Part 2)

A growing number of individuals feel it necessary to bridge the gap to a more ecologically friendly lifestyle by embracing natural foods, recycling and using public transportation. Almost everything in our lives can be made more natural or ecologically friendly. Unfortunately, this natural and ecologically friendly way of living is not often connected to that central masterpiece that should be at the top of every ecologically minded individual’s list.

That masterpiece is our own body. That is why we are launching the term “everyday exercise” to direct our daily choices in order to serve our health and the natural function of our bodies.

The term “everyday exercise” includes all voluntary and involuntary physical activity – anything that activates your muscles. Everyday exercise is not just sport or training and is certainly not just running on a treadmill while staring into the mirror at the gym. Everyday exercise is using our bodies the way they were meant to be used. Every movement is important and every step brings us closer to what our bodies were originally made to do.

Everyday exercise is not based on time, does not need a specific place or mode, there is no particular style or technique, you do not need equipment or clothes and even special goals are totally unnecessary. Ease, accessibility, comprehensiveness and above all a good feeling can be used to describe everyday exercise. Everyday exercise is what our bodies naturally need and this is a pillar for our health.

Some years ago, I was asked about my future plans. Without much of thinking I replied: “I want to make the world a better place where people don’t need to sit so much”. This spontaneous answer was the leading light to finish my PhD degree and forward to new business opportunities in health technology aiming at making life healthier - with less sitting. For my blog posts, I have used material from my book "Luomuliikunnan vallankumous" (engl. The revolution of everyday activity) (Fitra 2014).
