Your brain and nervous system is an adaptation machine - you need to stimulate and challenge it to achieve adaptations ✔️
👼 From the time you are born, your first mission is to figure out how to move so you can survive and start to navigate through the world.
↪️ The first step is breathing. This must be figured out quickly, as your life depends on it. Babies learn how to breathe efficiently without anyone telling them how to do so.
➡️ Babies then go through a predicable developmental motor sequence, learning how to do things like roll, crawl, reach, squat, and walk. They learn all by themselves, even before they can speak. They learn through the interaction of the bodies systems: visual system, nervous system, musculoskeletal system etc.
➡️ It comes down to trial and error. Everything in early life is a MOVEMENT TASK that must be figured out. There are many failed attempts, but we gradually LEARN how to pattern movement efficiently and reproduce movements that allow us to complete the given tasks.
🔑 This process of movement learning continues at a rapid pace until we can do most of the baseline things that humans do (walk, run, sprint, jump, climb, throw etc.). For some, this process continues. For others, it slows or comes to a halt.
🔑 Movement requires attention and mindfulness, especially in the learning process. To keep getting better at it, it requires continual exploration of different positions and movements. It requires environmental and movement challenges. At a basic level, it requires you to be aware of how you move atleast some of the time.
🔑 That’s how the nervous system works...if you don’t use it, you lose it. Neurons that fire together, wire together...meaning that intentional movement exploration and practice yields a more robust movement system (healthier joints, healthier mind, less injury risk, more movement options 👍)
