Though many times when people think of good jobs, or even just comfortable jobs, they envision relaxing offices, working with computers, talking with people, solving problems, or creating things with mental power, there’s a whole segment of human society that would be far happier doing a job that requires physical movement. There’s a joy in the hard work of motion that tactile learners or people with physical energy have, and it’s a good idea to relate the job market to them somehow.
So, five professions in particular that can be associated with the pleasure of physical work might include looking into massage therapy, construction work, gardening and landscaping, dancing professionally, or even being a fitness, martial arts, or yoga instructor.
- Massage Therapy
Massage therapy, or even physical therapy in general, involve a lot of knowledge as well as the ability to physically manipulate as well. Massage therapists have a lot of things to understand, as they need an in-depth knowledge of the structure of the human body at rest as well as in motion, and they also need to practice their own muscle memory abilities, and they also need to be able to get along with people on a personal level as well (no one wants to work with a physical therapist with a bad attitude).
- Construction Work
Construction work takes skill, muscle, and efficiency, and can be an extremely rewarding and well-paid profession for people will to take on that whole trifecta of requirements. Even though heavy machinery counts for a lot at sites, there still have to be the people present to do the work that requires the human eye, the human touch, or the human sense of flexibility.
- Gardening and Landscaping
If you like growing things as well as getting your hands dirty with digging and pruning, then gardening and landscaping jobs might be something that you’re interested in. You have to have the eye of a designer and the skill of a sculptor when it comes to a lot of that tasks that are going to be involved, especially in major outdoor projects.
There is a fair amount of work available for dancers for people who prefer physical jobs as well. There are theater companies and performance companies that constantly need staff, and working as a dance instructor is also a valuable profession at a community level as well.
- Fitness, Martial Arts, and Yoga Instruction
And there are always people who are interested in fitness, martial arts, and yoga, so if you want to take you own experiences to the next level and get paid for it as well, going through the certification processes to be an instructor may be exactly what you’re looking for.
