We are humans. We once braved the Ice Age, chased down wildebeests, outwitted wild tigers, and converted trees into boats to travel the oceans. We survived starvation, violence, and the elements, and bonded together into units to defy them all. Once upon a time, daily physical challenge was expected, not feared. Adversity and discomfort were par for the course. We moved with confidence and confidence, and even invented dance and sport to fill our spare time with more activity.
We thrived in this environment. We respected our biology’s need for nature, for challenge, for community, and for a purpose bigger than ourselves.
