Never too old

 

I know a lot of us don't like to think about it (and when we are younger it never even enters our heads) that of the ageing process. I remember in my late teens thinking how people in their 50's were old, until I personally reached that milestone. Now I'm here and I've realised it's not that old at all.

The ageing process is something we are all involved with and that non of us can escape from, time will just tick along, along with us all ageing. There are no medications available to prevent this process, although our ageing rate and life expectancy can be modified with exercise. We are all born to live and we will all live to die there is nothing more certain in life but death. So why not live out our lives until the inevitable and to the best of our abilities, in happiness and health.

 

 

Many age related diseases can also be prevented and reduced with physical exercise and with a healthy plan, this can only add to the benefits. Although non of this will stop the ageing process, it will make our later life much more enjoyable. We are never too old to exercise or change our eating habits. It's a fact that without regular physical activity the body slowly loses its strength, stamina and ability to function well. People who are physically active and at a healthy weight live about 7 years longer than those who are not active and are obese.

 

Move well till the day you die, and why not?

 

You might have the odd aching joint but sitting there feeling sorry for yourself isn't the answer and it's never too late for change. If some of you are sat there thinking I've never exercised before, so it's pointles; then why not try exercise now. You will be surprised how rejuvenated it can make you feel.

 

No matter what age you are just give exercise a chance, the benefits from it can be amazing, here's a few examples as to what the benefits of exercise can offer:

 

  • Improve or maintain your strength and fitness

  • Make it easier to do the things you want to do

  • Help your balance and walking

  • Help with feelings of depression or anxiety and improve your mood

  • Maintain your thinking skills (cognitive function) as you get older

  • Prevent or treat diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, breast and colon cancer and osteoporosis
