As technology progresses our lives become more and more comfortable. We are becoming so comfortable that in some cases it’s even unhealthy.
We are human beings, we were created and we have evolved to be active, to move and be agile, to hunt or gather our food.
But today you can have whatever you want sitting at home. You can order food, accessories, whole spectrum of entertainment with a push of a button.
You don’t walk to work, you sit driving your car, or you sit in a metro, you sit at work, you sit at home, you sit most of your life.
That’s why one of the healthiest activities you can implement in your life is to start walking more. Feel tired, stressed, anxious? Take a literal walk.
