The First Steps to the Everyday Exercise Revolution (Part 3)

The modern work culture thinks our bodies are a joke. The worst enemies for everyday exercise are our chairs, cars, televisions, computer, elevators, escalators, and our overall busy lives. Has our innate need for comfort selected a sitting society as its undisputed favorite way to live? There are, fortunately, many friends of everyday activity including: bicycles, sidewalks, trails by lakes, the  stairs, the rain fresh forest, a sunny morning, games with friends, dogs, green parks, standing workstations, brisk work, good quality shoes, exercise balls, talented group exercise instructors, happiness, energy, and joy de vive.

We are all more or less everyday exercisers in our own unique and satisfying way.

Everyday exercise provides exercise opportunities for everyone, always. In addition, it is both fun, easy and promotes wellness and happiness for yourself and others. Everyday exercise is not just for health, but plays a central role in both physical and psychological health. Everyday exercise gives life meaning, value, and quality. It improves quality of sleep, decreases stress, and supports your social relationships. The best mode of everyday exercise is the one that suits you the best and is the most effective tool to use against even the most inviting sofa.

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).
