How well do you know the body that you live with every single day?
Bodies are seriously astounding and the more I learn about the body, the more fascinated I am. Did you know that your heart beats 100,000 times per day, pumping 5.5 litres per minute, which adds up to about 3 million litres of blood a year? Me neither, but isn't it interesting! And what about this one: without your little finger, your hand loses 50% of its strength. Really good to know, and I'll be testing this out in this week's classes!
By getting to know your body better, you can enjoy it more and it will serve you better. Perhaps you know already that chocolate makes your ears itch, that red wine gives you a headache, or that doing lots of stomach crunches hurts your neck - but are you really paying attention? If we really listen to our amazing bodies more, we can gain so much more than if we ignore them. Our bodies are here to last, so let's look after them!
