“Aging” can be a touchy subject around people in my age bracket. The fitter people tend to feel good, motivated, positive, less sensitive to age. Those of us in the 40 – 50+ age range that have not maintained a high level of fitness may look back and think “I wish I stayed fit!”. We often feel it’s too late to become fitter and healthier and think that we are too old to make lifestyle changes or to be more physically active. We shudder at the thought of each birthday because we are “getting older”.
I just completed a 3 mile trail run through the woods at a local park. It was a beautiful morning for a run even though I am not one to enjoy running.
It is easy to be sedentary in today’s world. There is a machine or service to do things physically and mentally for us and this is causing a large percentage of the population to skip healthy nutrition and to be inactive. What’s worse is the population that thinks they are active and healthy but are not.
There is hope however in that many people are discovering a need to change their lifestyle to improve their health and fitness.
