I read a really interesting book entitled “Younger Next Year” by Chris Crowley and Henry S. Lodge M.D. They have one version for men and one for women and I highly recommend them.
It is written in a really easy to read, humourous way but it explained the importance of daily exercise and eating properly to maintaining excellent health throughout your life.
Aerobic exercise is required four days a week while strength training is needed two days a week. That is exercise six days a week, every week, for the rest of your life. Think of it as a part time job. And the most important job you have ever had!
What they say in this book that struck me the most is that people are living longer but many people are not living WELL longer. They break a hip or get dementia and are in pain every day but they still continue to live for many, many years.
However if you exercise and eat right and take care of your health, you can live for all those many years pain free with as few problems that are humanly possible. It comes down to you taking care of you. No one else is going to do it for you. So do it!
