We have seen how doing too much can weaken, wear out and damage your body in many ways, but so too can a lack of movement and activity lead to many problems and illnesses.
If you do nothing at all, organs start to become weak and things start to slow down and accumulate in the body. This can cause it to become blocked and stagnant on the inside. The heart and other organs will find it more difficult to do their jobs and will face a heavier workload and burden from this excess...
This stops phlegm and toxins gathering and adhering to cells where they can cause damage to them. This reduces the likelihood of many of our modern diseases such as cancer, diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
Another pattern that can come about in the body from lack of activity is weakness. If muscles, tissues, bones, joints and organs are not used, then energy is redirected away from them. Over time this will cause them to lose tone and to become weak and incapable when they are needed to perform an action. A moderate amount of daily movement will prevent this from happening.
One of the organs that can become affected by lack of movement is the digestive system... If it becomes sluggish and blocked, it will be unable to effectively digest and breakdown food which may leave you short of the good nutrients you need, but at the same time allow a surplus of damaging poorly digested ones to enter into your bodies’ bloodstream. These will create phlegm and fats in you, which will lead to more problems and pressure in your already troubled body.
So you shouldn't over exercise, but to stay in good health you do need to maintain a certain amount of movement and moderate activities.
