These Boots Were Made for Walking!
Did you just walk over to your computer to read your favorite blog? No, no, no, you did much more than that. The voice you heard in your head was your brain barking lots and lots of orders.
Remember when you learned to crawl? Me neither. You were working on hand-eye coordination that later helped you take a pencil to paper. You even strengthened your muscles from the core all the way out to your hands, making it possible to do great things like throw spit balls at your teacher in middle school. Wow, you were busy! Most importantly, you were working on the reciprocal motion important to walking.
And just now you were quite the multi-tasker. First, you engaged your core muscles. Then you shifted your weight to one side, very careful not to fall over. When you brought your foot forward, you landed it in a specific heel to toe fashion, bending your knee just so. You may not have even noticed that you were swinging your arms slightly to keep you in balance, and because your brain loves reciprocal motion even more than the hokey-pokey (which is reciprocal motion in slow motion so you should probably do it every day).
Walking is quite the complex activity and you did it! Way to go!
