Moving doesn’t just help us get around, it also keeps us strong and makes us more resilient. Our bodies are designed to be in motion, and when we don’t move, our muscles waste, our bones get weaker, our joints get stiff and it takes even more energy to participate in life.
That translates into a whole lot of pain and exhaustion!
