Let’s Move…

One of my favorite places to be was in the height of competition.  The harder the game the more I sweat the closer I came to staying in the Zone.  My dream was to play in the Olympics.

It was my special place where performance was exceptional and consistent, automatic and flowing. I was able to ignore all the pressures and let my body deliver the performance that I trained so hard for and competition became fun and exciting.  This was Life.

Any competitive athlete or person who views fitness as sport probably has experienced this almost enlightened state of being.  It’s a universal phenomenon; across all sports. Although, as always, intra-sport and inter-athlete differences exist.

It’s in those moments I learned to be in awe of the divine design of the human body.  And, we must all “secretly” admire this because there is no doubting that sports play a significant role in the lives of many Americans and of many people around the world.

Human beings admire the beauty and grace in sport; we are moved by the discipline of the best athletes; and often it is the heroism and courage in sport that they applaud.

Perhaps that’s what Mrs. Obama is trying to do with her Let’s Move campaign.

But I think it’s important for us to pause for a second and admit the fact that the human body is designed to move.  We were given arms, legs, hands and feet for a reason. Because everything has a reason…. right?

So if it is Natural to move then I think it’s fair to say that we have definitely gone off course; especially if the government is now trying to get us to do just that….MOVE

So if, like Albert Einstein says, nothing happens until something moves then the key to all life experience must be movement.

I wonder why we stopped?

Live and Learn. We all DO.

Thanks for reading. Please pass this on to someone who means something to you.

    Hey there, I think your website might be having browser
    compatibility issues. When I look at your website in
    Opera, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a
    quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!

    obviously like your website but you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very bothersome to inform the reality however I’ll surely come back again.
