Move It Or Lose It – The Importance Of Moving Your Body EOA Social

“The body will become better at whatever you do - or don't do. You don't move? The body will make you better at not moving. If you move, your body will allow you more movement.”

That’s a quote by movement legend, Ido Portal, that perfectly sums up what we want to tell you in this episode.

Too many of us live a sedentary lifestyle and think nothing of it. Let’s face it, we are pretty good at being comfortable. We are built for comfort and have robots doing everything for us - from the assistant on our iPhones, to remote controls and even Uber Eats!
Moving your body is so important because it ensures you don’t lose flexibility and a whole lot of other functionality. But understanding why and how best to increase your daily movement is just as important.

A habit is something you do without even thinking about it. When you repeatedly do the same thing, the feel-good hormone dopamine is released in your body and you get a little hit of that every time that ‘perform’ your habit. #BreatheMe #MentalHealth #Habit
