Moving

Are you currently using any of your muscles? Even if you aren't moving, your muscles are working - keeping you sitting or standing up, your heart beating, your gut moving food through your body, and your eyes focused on this screen. Your brain controls many of your muscles without you having to think about them.

Your brain controls your muscles, whether you're running or standing still.
