One of motivational life coach Tony Robbins’ favorite phrases is “motion is emotion.” In truth, people don’t know, or underestimate, the importance of motion. Motion has a multifaceted effect on the human body. Motion helps regulate your emotions, meaning that a person’s level of happiness or depression is often in alignment with that individual’s proclivity for activity. Motion increases oxygen and blood circulation to and from the brain, helping individuals make better and quicker decisions and improving the overall efficiency of the cerebral vortex. Motion increases or quickens your metabolism, which determines the time your body processes food into, and through, the body. Fourth, motion results in a better-looking and healthier physique.
