Physical Exercise & Fitness
Evolution & Importance of Every Day Activity for Physical & Mental Health. Fun Tips, Body / Mind, Modern Life


Ideas to consider:

We evolved as hunter gatherers - walking and physical exercise would be an integral part of everyday life. In many western countries, we now live more sedentary lives. Driving to work, sitting at a desk or computer, watching tv at night etc. This lack of daily physical exercise must contribute to many malaises of modern society - obesity, depression, preventable disease and health problems.

Make exercise worthwhile and fun - e.g. grow your own vegetable garden, play sport with your kids, go fishing and catch dinner.

Importance of Sport - stirs up all sorts of tribal behaviour, competition and instincts. Self esteem, feel good factor. Addicted to good things - yoga, surfing!

Rather than start a fad diet or taking up a new sport, make healthy living a lifestyle! Avoid extremes, path of every day moderation.

Benefits of exercise outside rather than gym - sunshine, fresh air!

Exercise & Evolution

'As a species human work (exercise) capabilities and limitations are a result of our species specific anatomical and physiological characteristics, which are in turn defined by our genetic constitution. Similar to all other organisms, the human genome was shaped by environmental selective pressures over eons of evolutionary experience.

..Examination of both the hominid fossil record and structural and functional differences between modern humans and primates provides insight into the evolutionary changes which occurred in human anatomy and physiology which directly influenced the exercise capabilities of contemporary men and women.

Further, by studying modern hunter gatherer societies, it is possible to not only develop models of optimal exercise patterns for fitness, but to evaluate how the discordance between the activity patterns of modern sedentary societies and hunter gatherer societies is implicated in a wide variety of chronic degenerative diseases which plague contemporary humans.'

Every Day Exercise

'We all know regular exercise is a must for good health. The National Institute of Medicine recommends at least 30 minutes to an hour of daily exercise, including swimming, brisk walking, and bicycling.

These 10 tips can help you work in a workout almost anytime and anyplace, either for free or dirt cheap, so the whole world is your health club.

1. Don't neglect that old standby, walking.
2. Housework counts!
3. Climb stairs.
4. Find some hills near home or work, and power up them.
5. Get out of the house, and go bowling! go to the park etc.
6. Stretch out.
7. If you're the outdoorsy type, go for a bike ride.
8. Get in the garden, and weed, weed, weed.
9. Pick up a jump rope or a slideboard.
10. Be a pal (volunteer to help a friend move house etc.)'

ABC of Sports Medicine: Benefits of exercise in health and disease

'The claim that individual participation in adequate amounts of regular physical activity can improve health and prevent disease is fully justified. The scientific evidence is based on many studies - epidemiological, clinical, and physiological. A working party of the Royal College of Physicians, convened in 1989, examined this evidence, recognised its importance, and based a series of recommendations on it.

Coronary heart disease and stroke are identified as key priorities in the white paper, Health of the Nation. In these two conditions individual risk is dramatically reduced by a change in lifestyle and an increase in physical activity. Other important benefits fall into four categories: enhancing function, maintaining reserve capacities, preventing disease, and ameliorating the effects of age and chronic disease.'

Tai Chi Chuan: Gentle, Beneficial Exercise

Tai chi chuan (TCC) is a Chinese conditioning exercise and is well known for its slow and graceful movements. Recent investigations have found that TCC is beneficial to cardiorespiratory function, strength, balance, flexibility, microcirculation and psychological profile. The long-term practice of TCC can attenuate the age decline in physical function, and consequently it is a suitable exercise for the middle-aged and elderly individuals. TCC can be prescribed as an alternative exercise programme for selected patients with cardiovascular, orthopaedic, or neurological diseases, and can reduce the risk of falls in elderly individuals. The exercise intensity of TCC depends on training style, posture and duration. Participants can choose to perform a complete set of TCC or selected movements according to their needs.

Help Humanity

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world."
(Mohandas Gandhi)

Albert Einstein"When forced to summarize the general theory of relativity in one sentence: Time and space and gravitation have no separate existence from matter. ... Physical objects are not in space, but these objects are spatially extended. In this way the concept 'empty space' loses its meaning. ... The particle can only appear as a limited region in space in which the field strength or the energy density are particularly high. ...
The free, unhampered exchange of ideas and scientific conclusions is necessary for the sound development of science, as it is in all spheres of cultural life. ... We must not conceal from ourselves that no improvement in the present depressing situation is possible without a severe struggle; for the handful of those who are really determined to do something is minute in comparison with the mass of the lukewarm and the misguided. ...
Humanity is going to need a substantially new way of thinking if it is to survive!" (Albert Einstein)

Biography: Geoffrey Haselhurst, Philosopher of Science, Theoretical Physics, Metaphysics, Evolution. Our world is in great trouble due to human behaviour founded on myths and customs that are causing the destruction of Nature and climate change. We can now deduce the most simple science theory of reality - the wave structure of matter in space. By understanding how we and everything around us are interconnected in Space we can then deduce solutions to the fundamental problems of human knowledge in physics, philosophy, metaphysics, theology, education, health, evolution and ecology, politics and society.

This is the profound new way of thinking that Einstein realised, that we exist as spatially extended structures of the universe - the discrete and separate body an illusion. This simply confirms the intuitions of the ancient philosophers and mystics.

Given the current censorship in physics / philosophy of science journals (based on the standard model of particle physics / big bang cosmology) the internet is the best hope for getting new knowledge known to the world. But that depends on you, the people who care about science and society, realise the importance of truth and reality.

It is Easy to Help!

Just click on the Social Network links below, or copy a nice image or quote you like and share it. We have a wonderful collection of knowledge from the greatest minds in human history, so people will appreciate your contributions. In doing this you will help a new generation of scientists see that there is a simple sensible explanation of physical reality - the source of truth and wisdom, the only cure for the madness of man! Thanks! Geoff Haselhurst (Updated September, 2018)

A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. (Max Planck, 1920)
