Aging Changes Everything!

I just read an interesting blog that puts the choice of exercise as we age into a good perspective.

All of us are getting older. Have you noticed that you need to do more just to maintain a credible level of health?

In our home of two (my husband Ed and me), we regularly evaluate what we’re eating, our level of activity, and other lifestyle choices that we know have contributed to our measure of good health.

We watched the food documentary Forks Over Knives this week.  I highly recommend it*. I have seen it, shared it with others, and knew that it was time for Ed to see it.  He embraced the message- which is great!  After being conscientious for the past three years, Ed’s comment was that he didn’t have to make many modifications to his diet. We have been pretty clean! We have actually been making good dietary choices for many years.

The point is that everyone needs to regularly evaluate his/her lifestyle practices.  My suggestions: keep reading, keep listening, and evaluate content as to whether or not it is simply reflecting a current fad, fodder for a new book– or is a legitimate consideration for good health.

The author’s comments provide a good overall philosophy for understanding the need for ‘upping the ante’ when it comes to exercise as we celebrate another birthday.  Check it out.  Feel free to leave your comments below.
