As time passes, humans are becoming increasingly tired, fat, and sick. We go from being children with boundless energy, and the default drives us towards becoming walking zombies in search of our next $6 Starbucks coffee. The amount of fatigue we are facing affects our personal and family time, but it also costs business owners. 43% of Americans report feeling too tired to complete their jobs, costing businesses $136 billion each year.
If we can gain back our vitality, we will put billions back into the economy while also experiencing an abundant life. The keys to reversing fatigue lie within adhering to the Max Living 5 Essential lifestyle. The body will heal and grow more robust, but this process takes time. It takes about one year for the body to regenerate into a new physical body completely and energy will be regained within weeks of beginning the 5 Essential lifestyle.
A component of the 5 Essentials is correcting the spine to allow for optimal nerve system function. The spine was designed for upright posture and the goal of spinal correction is to return and maintain the upright spine to its optimal alignment. To make this happen, we must remove the insult which is causing the spine to lose alignment, and currently, the most common abuse is sitting too much. This is why I recommend setting a timer for at least every hour to stand and move through the day. I also recommend performing spinal homecare exercises through the workday as well.
The benefits of taking breaks from sitting go beyond just correcting the spine. Research has shown that when people are sleep-deprived, a loss of cognitive ability is created while the individual is seated, but not when the individual stands. This means that standing improves mental ability. You can get an even more significant increase in cognition if you perform tasks while using the Max Living wobble cushion due to the rise in neuroplastic changes. Your brain grows new pathways while doing wobble cushion exercises. Whether you feel fatigued or not, everyone can experience increased cognitive function by standing and performing wobble exercises while performing any mental task.
