The Power of Motion

What if you have the ability to increase your overall potential, prolong longevity and help prevent disease?

The unusual thing is to do! It is the power of movement. Movement is movement, the movement has been conceived as a physical activity of the human body.

Physical activity refers to any physical movement produced by structural muscles that require energy expenditure. A subcategory of physical activity is exercise, which refers to planned, planned, organized and refined movement that aims to improve or maintain fitness (WHO, 2018).

Before you take a quick look at the strength of that movement, take a moment to think about your usual day and routine, and write the hours of vigilance on the day you move and you are stable. As you continue to read, think about how to take advantage of the power you already have.

Exercise usually involves three main components: cardio exercise, strength, and flexibility. Each one is part of the overall strength equation that positively benefits your health and fitness. Thus, it is recommended to include all three components in a regular workout system. However, there is already strength in all kinds of movement to improve your well-being and your health, regardless of type, height or density. Some movement is always better than none.

The power of the movement has a positive impact not only on the human body but also on the mind (emotional perception and well-being), social welfare, outlook on life and self-perception. As physical activity continues (including deliberate exercise), the benefits increase. For example, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (2018) presents the following list with the proven benefits of physical activity:

Reduction of Blood pressure
Improve cholesterol levels
Low risk of cardiovascular disease
Low triglycerides
Low blood sugar
Increased high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL)
Low risk of type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome
Enhance weight control and improve body fat percentage
Stronger bones and muscles
Reduce the risk of conditions affecting the joints (eg, arthritis)
Reduce the risk of certain cancers (such as colon cancer, breast cancer, uterine and lung cancer)
Improve mental health and mood
Low risk of depression
Maintain thinking, learning and judgment skills with age
Improved sleep
Improve the ability to perform daily activities and reduce the risk of falls
Increase longevity
More specifically, the American College of Sports Medicine reports that regular physical activity:

Reduces stroke risk by 27%
Reduces the incidence of heart disease and hypertension by approximately 40%
Reduces the risk of Alzheimer's by nearly 40%
Reduces mortality and the risk of recurrent breast cancer by approximately 50%
Reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes by 58%
Reduces colon cancer risk by more than 60%
Regular physical activity may have significant cognitive benefits, as research shows improved performance during and after intermittent exercise (Peven et al., 2018; Dupuy et al., 2018). Recent research has shown that aerobic fitness may contribute positively to the allocation of deliberate resources in childhood (Raine et al., 2018). Moreover, resistance training appears to have particular benefit for inhibitory control functions in the brain (ie, the ability to inhibit or control overlying responses, and to change one response for a better, more responsive, adaptive response) (Soga et al., 2018) .

The human body works best when it is active. The more we ask for our bodies, the stronger and more appropriate it becomes. The more appropriate we become, the more efficient we become in all areas of life. The more we put our bodies in motion, the better our minds are.

Imagine what could happen if we started turning working hours into moving hours every day. The power of movement has the power to transform your life in incredible ways!
