Many youngsters these days are growing up in a sedentary environment, with television, phone screen time, coding workshops, and wired school classes.

We know more than ever before the advantages of movement for children’s development. For their physical, emotional, mental health and capacity to connect, as well as their ability to stay focused and complete tasks in life.

Some are taking advantage of what is now more readily accessible than ever before, including multisport stars, access to learning any activity or craft.

However, for most individuals around the world, electricity consumption and dependence on electronics have disadvantages.

A recent 2017 study showed that today 19-year-olds are getting overall movement and physical activity as those already in their 60s.

Another discovery they made was that the only time people’s physical activity rates increased from age 6 onwards was during the twenties, when overall activity rates rose for a time before subsequently declining.

What caused this temporary increase in mobility during early adulthood and then a subsequent decline?

They suggested that work and family pressures were to blame. Then what came after?

The onset of pain, illness, and chronic disease.

Some individuals, however, seem to be resisting the signs of aging at the same time. And they live longer, have more pleasure, are more attractive, and feel greater confidence in their bodies than other people.

What is the difference?

The researchers didn’t explain, but it’s most likely because these individuals just couldn’t stop and weren’t afraid to seek out the help they needed to keep going.

Chiropractic, on the other hand, is an excellent booster of movement.
