We all know that after a certain age, things start to go down hill when it comes to our health and fitness. After a certain age (30? 40? 50?) things catch up with us.
Maybe we look in the mirror one day, and we see that our muscle tone isn’t what it once was. Or we’re achy in the morning and getting out of bed is painful. Or we’re gaining weight ~ and losing it again isn’t as easy as it used to be. We’re losing our memory.
And some of us say ‘Oh well’ and figure this is the inevitable part of aging.
While others say ‘time to get to work’ and they make the time, find the support, and make a change. Change their trajectory.
To a pretty large degree (some would say up to 75%) how we age is up to us. Up to a collection of small choices we make to ensure our overall health. Exercising, eating well, and resting properly.
It’s a lot like saving for retirement. Monthly savings turn into a big pay day.
You don’t have to turn into a superhero athlete. These are the things you need to focus on on a daily basis to age well:
- Mobility & agility
- Muscle & soft tissue strength
- Balance & stability
It’s up to YOU! If you need support and don’t know where to start, I’d love to help you.
