In the modern world, we tend to think of our own bodies as imperfect.

There are plenty of fit bodies: models, dancers, bodybuilders - examples of bodies being ‘perfected’ through exercise and diet. If that isn’t hard enough, companies are also busy trying to sell you things by appealing to your sense of physical inadequacy. Back braces, ergonomic chairs, shoes with arch support, fitness apps, free postural assessments worth $99.

It’s much easier to sell you something if you feel like there’s something wrong with your body. As you work through this book, you’ll notice these messages more and more - companies trying to convince you that your body is fragile.

The reality is, bodies are anything but fragile.

We are the primary species on this planet. The latest version of our body has evolved over 2 million years. Even with the most challenging lifestyles, our bodies manage to push on.

We can sit for 60 hours a week. We can run 100kms. We can do incredible things. Sure we might feel uncomfortable sometimes - but our bodies are actually pretty amazing.
