I recently came across this fantastic video by Doug Patterson. Doug in this video tries to learn how to ride a bike with a small but big difference. What he finds demonstrates why it is so important to learn how to move and be physically active whilst young as our minds have more plasticity for learning and overcoming challenging physical tasks. And more importantly, once a skill learnt it is very difficult to unlearn it, or relearn using a different understanding. This is why we must get physical literacy right from a young age. I hope you enjoy the video.
Welcome to the LifeDojo “Exercise Lifestyle” class! Spring has arrived… and with it, the compelling sense that we need to get outside, run, work out, and work off the winter gut! We at LifeDojo have the same feeling… gotta fit into our swimsuits come June! Instead of spending $$$ on a gym, or guilt-tripping yourself into running 10 miles on day one (only to give up a week later); take the time to watch these videos. Science shows us we will fail, unless we get smart about Exercise as a long-term lifestyle. Over the next 45 days, we will be releasing “episodes” of this class twice a week. By the end of this class, you will: – Learn about the physical, mental & emotional benefits of exercising. – Learn about the history of exercise, from 10,000 B.C. through to today. – Learn the story of today’s current crisis of inactivity...
Exercise may be the #1 tool you have to make yourself smarter, more focused, and more aware than you are now. Learn just how powerful exercise is on growing and changing your brain! @LifeDojo – The world’s first online Life Skills Academy – www.lifedojo.com
