The brain’s main function is to decipher sense data so that it knows what to do next. Now, what happens when we stop moving? We stop sending stimuli to our brain via our proprioception sense. The lack of information diminishes the quality of perception, subsequently affecting the actions to be taken.
The human body is designed to move and there are over 650 named skeletal muscles that help to facilitate movements of various body parts. Although most individuals have the same general set of muscles, there is some variability from one person to another. Have you ever wondered what causes those variabilities?
How many of you have actually come across the word mobility & flexibility, and feeling confused about the two? If that is you, don’t worry because I used to be puzzled by the two as well. Right now, if you try to ask Mr. Google about it, you can still get a variety of definitions from different sites, depending on who defines it.
Have you ever thought of how the body actually works when we move? If I was asked about this question, I’d be listing down the human body systems that are involved, explaining the mechanisms required in order to execute a movement, etc… But honestly, does everyone need to know that before moving? NOPE!
