We are scared to move our bodies; scared to look stupid or silly. So we often hold our bodies in, limbs close to our sides, heads down facing the dirt. Our bodies were meant to move, meant to look silly, meant to squirm.

Think of a child who can’t sit still. We berate them, but they are just doing want the body wants to do: move, until for potentially beneficial reasons for society we drill the freedom, comfort, and ease of movement out of them.

We are all a little scared to move freely, but if we can release some of our ego, movement will become easier. We need to stop worrying about how we look and let the body move more like children.
