Working Out to Remain Enthroned
The human physical form is The Marvel of Evolution on planet Earth. It has an exemplary sharp brain, keen and alert senses, and a very capable and adaptive body. It is the king of the evolutionary kingdom. And, it sure has not reached the throne by sitting lazily on its rear end!
This wonder of nature has earned its ascend by proving its mental – out working and out smarting the rest of the pack. The human physical form has been conditioned and tuned to handle the challenges and threats posed to its supremacy in the earthly kingdom – it has been geared to withstand the demands vigors of the job. It climbed up the evolutionary ladder, understanding it very well that in the physical and mental lethargy does exist its demise.
The modern sedentary life style, adopted by most of us, is causing havoc to our physiological make-up. This sedentary life style is artificial, against the way of nature, and is causing serious damage to our otherwise very capable bodies. Nature has prepared us for the rigors of this world, but in our acquired state of laziness, we have chosen to surrender our natural prowesses that guarantee our health and fitness.
A lazy life style, deprived of physical and mental stimuli, is the main cause of most of the diseases that afflict us. An inactive life’s gift to us is the lack of energy, depression, a state of confusion, and the loss of control. Many of our modern ailments spring from this acquired state of mental lethargy and laziness
A minimum amount of physical activities and mental exercise is essential to maintain the physical fitness and mental sharpness – worthy of this king of the evolution.
