3:10 Professor Daniel Lieberman on why we're wired to be lazy.

When you take the escalator, instead of the stairs, don’t be too hard on yourself. We are hard wired to choose the easy way  says Daniel Lieberman, professor of human evolutionary biology at Harvard. You’re not wrong or even lazy  if you find going to the gym or doing workouts unpleasant. Professor Lieberman wants us to take a more compassionate approach, an anthropological  approach,  to physical activity that keeps us healthy.  His new book is called It’s Exercised: The Science of Physical Activity, Rest and Health.
