The physical diminishment of aging is true if you believe it. People get the idea they should exercise less as they age, and these misconceptions become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Bodies become frail, rigid. Bellies balloon, muscles atrophy. The inevitable fall, and loss of mobility. These are the dismal consequences of neglecting the daily challenges the body requires for optimal functionality… for being a lazy-ass, in other words.
If you’re retired, no excuse. If you haven’t nurtured the habit of daily exercise, or whatever it is you think you’re doing is basically useless, or dangerous, it’s never too late to start doing the right things. If you’re rusty. Lost momentum. Need a kick start. Or a whole new approach.
Know your weaknesses. It’s always a good place to start. This is an adventure. You’ll mine the richest rewards. And know your strengths. Play offense too. Why not put a shine on your attributes?
A heart you can have confidence in. Uncomplaining joints. A clear head and a positive attitude.
You find yourself getting in better shape as you age.
