Movement Matters: 4 Reasons to Get Moving From Movement Expert Katy Bowman!

We know that movement is good for our bodies, but did you know that a lack of movement can actually threaten our existence? Katy Bowman, a biomechanist, writes in her book, "Movement Matters," about the importance of movement and why we should not focus on exercise, but rather moving more. Here are some key takeaways from her book:

  • Movement does not only refer to exercise.
  • We have outsourced so much movement in our society that we are actually losing evolutionary functions that were once necessary for survival.
  • Diseases that we are treating with exercise could potentially be prevented if we only engaged in more movement throughout the course of the day.
  • Ways to move more? Take the stairs instead of the elevator, chop and dice your vegetables rather than buying them that way and interact with nature.
