Most of us have raced and competed our way through daily life. We idolize youth and fear aging. Thus, we hail with appreciation the ninety year old skier, the eighty year old hiker, the seventy year old century cyclist.But why not consider the an incredible number of middle-agers who’ve discovered the riches and benefits of a healthier lifestyle post retirement living or after having a health scare? Should we not really encourage and compliment their endeavours and accomplishments with comparable passion? In fact, I am quite certain there are way more aging athletes in this category compared to former.
The simple truth is, knowledge is part of healthy aging, too. In the beginning, I started to practice yoga hoping relaxing my lower back pain and getting rid of the tightness in my neck. However it was the wisdom of yoga; finding out how to successfully integrate mind, body, spirit and breath that educated me in how you can become more present in my life and in the entire world.
Healthy aging is really a concept we are able to all graciously embrace however the reality is that no one will improve through life’s stages untouched. Many of us will defy growing old process with entire body and soul. Some people encourage age spots and wrinkles with sense of humor and grace. Many others will succumb to long-term anxiety and/or depression caused by the triggers of getting older for example illness, disease, pain, and loss.
No one can tell the way we will face the difficulties of getting older while confronting the vagaries of life. Forecasting the long run is normally considered difficult to rely on and worrying about the unknown is definite to create unnecessary emotional and physical damage. But we are able to live wisely making healthy choices. We can easily appear for our own lives and become emotionally present for our family and friends in happy times and bad. We are able to live every day with reason and recognition and establish problems and goals that excite and motivate. We are able to hike mountains, swim oceans, race for the cure, and walk scenic trails. We’re able pursue our baby boomer bucket lists with excitement and passion.
But don’t forget, the places become less meaningful if you haven’t enjoyed the journey. Discovering that balance could be a problem but intelligence is our reward for reaching our Baby Boomer years. Take notice and you may enjoy the experiences more fully as well as in better health. Are you ready? First step that has to be made if you believe in healthy aging is diet.
