Have we evolved, or devolved? I’ve commented on the subject previously, and there are some sad but scary truths to the fact that today’s human form isn’t optimized to do much physically. Fortunate for us, we are among the most adaptable species on the planet, and thanks to our brains, we can think and invent our way through nearly any problem we’re confronted with that challenges our survival. Today, not only the fittest survive; rather we all survive thanks to a manufactured system.
Consider eliminating grocery stores, fast food joints, and your favorite AM coffee stop and imagine how long you would survive… finding a healthy balance of survival and dependence is critical to keep us well centered, focused, and appreciative of our roots.
Regardless of where evolution takes us next..be it born to run, born to swim, or born to fly, keep in perspective that we’ve been born to do something – and that something should include some well spent time outside.
