Here are the 6 Key Truths of Long Health
“Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying about your age and start bragging about It" - Maude Smith, Age 95
You CAN add more years to your life by living a healthy, optimistic life. 8 years ago scientists hypothesized that the human body, when perfectly maintained can comfortably last 120 years before naturally giving out. Today in 2016 scientist hypothesize this could really be many more years than that with new scientific advances.
Just extra years is not really the goal, is it? The goal in fact is Long Health. Long health means you are energized and creative at any age, be it 44, 58, 72, 85 or 94. A sedentary, painful and lifeless life need not be the inevitable final chapter in our lives. You do not need to accept that the diseases of aging – heart disease, arthritis, insomnia, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and so forth, are in your destiny. Long health is living and active, healthy, happy, purposeful life- now and until the last days of your life.
Long health also isn’t achieved by swallowing pills, visiting doctors, or launching yet another formal exercise routine. Achieving long health is a process to be respected and enjoyed. The best path to being happy, energized, and healthy in the future is living happily, energetically, and healthily in the present.
We are all part of a generation now that is redefining aging. We need to throw out the notion that aging is a slow decline towards death, and that your goal is to reach some artificial age threshold, like a marathon where the goal is to merely reach the finish line, enduring whatever torture is causes you on the way.
Some great news is that the past CAN be changed, at least when it comes to harmful habits and activities. It is never too late to make changes and see the benefits of those changes.
I myself have lived a less than perfect life. I have spent too much time in the sun, ate more junk food than I like to admit and have partaken in some other various “Unhealthy” activities in my life, but it is great to know it is not too late to change those habits to healthy ones and reap the benefits of a long and healthy life.
On my next blog I will be covering some Truths about Aging… Also I will be covering some common myths. You will not want to miss it!
Here is one more quote I want to leave with you: “Remember, you don’t stop laughing because you grow old, you grow old because you stop laughing”.
Until next time! It’s time to live the life you’ve imagined!
