Decay Is The Default If We Sit Around And Do Nothing
AUGUST 18, 2020
If we want to create true health and longevity, we have to raise our standards for what is possible, and what we will accept, from ourselves at our age, right now.
The truth is that in order to be able to stand up without assistance, or even dance (without pain or assistance) at age 70+ - we need to shoot for the health and vitality and MOBILITY of a 50 year old. By extension, this means ALWAYS shooting for a younger age, physically, that you really are - so, at age 40 shoot for age 20-25. Obviously if you are age 20-25 then....teens for you.
Before your mind automatically tells you how "unrealistic" this is, or how you won't be able to do it - consider that 35%+ of the population is overweight or obese and on MULTIPLE medications (from preventable lifestyle diseases) in their 20s and 30s....and it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what their 50s-60s-70s-80s-90s are going to look like in terms of quality of life.
DAILY EXERCISE and GOOD NUTRITION. It's pretty doable, and simple for most people. MOST people know this, but most people are NOT doing it.
So many women are so engrossed in doing, being and catering to other people that when we hit our 40s we wonder what happened to our bodies - we never consider to take care of ourselves before we get there. And by that time we're too sick, or tired or simply physically unable to...really be there for OURSELVES (let alone our loved ones!) at what's supposed to be the prime of our lives. So it's downhill from there. And it was completely, totally within our power not to be, we just didn't pay attention OR we kept telling ourselves the lie that "I'll do it when....." or "It's not THAT bad".
Don't let this happen to you, friends. It's totally within YOUR power to not end up sick, disabled or on multiple medications as you age. If you're buying into the common thinking that as you age pain, illness and meds are normal I'm not afraid to tell you it's complete Bullshit.
Whatever your age is subtract 15-20 years from that. Whatever number you come up with, set that as the new bar for your health, fitness, mobility and physicality. Stop accepting much, much less than you deserve.
How you feel and the condition you're in later depends on what you do, and the standards you set, right now.
