I agree with everything you said, Sonya!
And here in the U.S. obesity rates continue to climb every decade. The majority of Americans are now quite overweight – the majority (68%)!! I’m sure that sedentary lives contributes greatly to this epidemic. I think it really does take conscious effort on our parts to try to re-imagine a world where we aren’t addicted to the need to be constantly in touch with everyone. I’m so grateful that I can have my horses because it is a part of my life that is strictly for the outdoors and away from technology and our chaotic modern lives.
