Publisher's Summary

What if we can make ourselves, our communities, and our planet healthier all at the same time by moving our bodies more?
Movement Matters is a collection of essays in which biomechanist Katy Bowman continues her groundbreaking investigation of the mechanics of our sedentary culture and the profound potential of human movement. Here she widens her message and invites us to consider our personal relationship with sedentarism, privilege, and nature. Bowman explores:

How convenience often means less movement, not more time
The missing movement nutrients in our food
How to include more nature in education
The impact of adding movement to permaculture and ecological models
Our need for vitamin community and group movement

Unapologetically direct, often hilarious, and always compassionate, Movement Matters demonstrates that human movement is powerful and important, and that living a movement-filled life is perhaps the most joyful and efficient way to transform your body, community, and world.

Another amazing and thought provoking book

I have read / listened to all of Katy's books and although this one is quite different, it was another fantastic book. There are no exercises to follow in this book but many suggestions as to how we can 'stack our lives' to move more and generally accomplish more whilst limiting the effect of our choices on the planet and all those that inhabit it.

I am sure that I will listen to this several times, something that I have only ever done once before and that was for 'Move Your DNA'

Katy again reads the book herself which I think enhances the messages.

Really worth a listen, I've been recommending it

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes and I have, it is a real get you thinking book and great conversation starter

What did you like best about this story?

It's not a story so to speak more a collection of essays, but it really got me thinking and her ideas are very well explained

What about Katy Bowman’s performance did you like?

She's engaging and I know think every audio book should have a gag reel at the end!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes but I'll prob relisten to some bits since I fairly raced through it

Any additional comments?

Definitely worth a listen, might just change how you look at the world
