What would living to be 100 years old look like for you?
Would you dread it? just live it? OR embrace it and live it to the fullest?
This past weekend I was looking at all the pictures I have in my living room. The kids when they were little (makes me sad sometimes) family, friends and wonderful memories. I also, have one of my uncle. Uncle ED! The kindest Soul you could ever meet. He lived to be 101. He was still living by himself when he was 100. Yes, seriously!
He was still reading books and remembering things when he was little like 5 and 6!! Could remember like it was yesterday. Amazing!!
Thinking of him and his age got me thinking about my own age and health. What I do now will determine if I even make it to 100 or even 60. Which really isn't that far away!! In order for us to live a full life in our "golden years" we have to take care of ourselves NOW!!! We all know this.
So, why is it so hard to take care of our health? Because we aren't thinking of the future. We aren't seeing the whole picture. We only see right now. What is going on from day to day. We are merely surviving and not growing to be better in every way.
Your health and fitness is a HUGE part of your happiness, well being, positive mind set, gratefulness, EVERYTHING!!! Most do not see how a healthy diet and exercise can make them feel better. "It's work and I have been working all day, I am tired!!" you say. Yep, I get it. BUT, what you don't realize is working out and eating healthy will give you ENERGY to last all day!! Energy all day, sleep like a baby all night.
No you don't have to spend an hour or more in the gym. You could do 30 minutes of workout a day AND healthy diet you will start to see results in a few weeks. No shit!! Working out could be a walk in the park. A yoga class at the Y. A home fitness program. (That way you KNOW each day what exercise you will be doing, no room to wiggle out of the workout).
So consider the future. Do you want to live to be the ripe old age of 100? Teaching your great great grand kid crazy shit that will get on their parents nerves but, the parents can't get mad at you for teaching them it because you are so old. Then start taking care of that body NOW!!! If you are on the verge of major health issues then consider getting help with your diet and workouts.
I can help you with both and I can also, help with getting your mind set right. Not that your mind is wrong but, to get started on a healthy life style journey your mind needs to be on board so that it will stick for the rest of your life.
It's not a burden when it is going to help you feel better. Is it?
Let's see the age of 100!! Oh the experiences and happiness we will witness because we are healthy inside and out.
