Remember what your childhood was like before you adopted the sedentary lifestyle with your ‘super fast’ wi-fi and HD television?
Remember when you had endless energy? I remember playing football/soccer for 4 hours and then more, getting upset when my aunt called me back inside the house.
“Haven’t you had enough? Don’t you get tired?” – She would say with a curious look on her face, as if she was wondering if I was actually a human being or not. “That is enough play for today, I don’t think I will let you play outside tomorrow, you have had enough, now go and have your bath”.
I always wondered why adults were so lazy. I never saw them playing at all, I concluded to myself that it must be boring to become a grown up.
Today, after 45 mins in the Gym, I check the stopwatch on my Apple ‘Iphone 5’ – Ahhh it’s nearly an hour, that was a nice workout, I’m done now – I am convincing myself that 45 mins is enough playtime for me.
Whatever happened to that 4 hour energy that I used to generate?
