If you have to see a doctor, do the numbers you get from test results look normal?
But what normal means is that’s the average of the population.
If you look at rates of chronic conditions, in the UK which are:
“People with long-term conditions now account for about 50% of all GP appointments,
64% of all outpatient appointments and over 70% of all inpatient bed days.”
So the normal for people that see a doctor in the UK is having a chronic condition.
In other words, if you are a Martian and you landed in the UK today, NHS stats say 67% of men and 60% of women are overweight or obese..
So, that would be normal. It’s not optimal, but it’s normal.
So if you have set yourself a health goal,
is it to have what is considered “normal health”?
Or are you aiming for optimal health?
Longterm sedentary behaviour results in many pains and problems for the body.
Regular movement throughout the day, ideally every 25 minutes is a great way to lessen the pain that many people endure
