Health After 60

O.K.  Most of you (but I realize not all of you) reading this are over 60 years of age.  Let’s face it… It’s not the end of the world!  Let’s get a grip!

I’m not saying that 60 is the new 40, because I don’t believe that.  What I’m saying is that no longer is 60 or people in their 60’s considered ‘elderly’ or ‘old’.  I’ll go along with ‘older’.

Recently I came across an article about being careful in the heat.  It gave lots of precautions for people 65 and older.  I’m actually not suggesting they shouldn’t be heeded.  Everyone needs to be careful in severe heat no matter what age we are.

My suggestion is to either start or aggressively continue a daily regimen of doing healthy stuff… like vigorously working out 45 minutes a day.  And eating right.  And caring about something, someone or a lot of stuff.

Oh!  That’s right…  There is a book that describes this in detail, Younger Next Year and Younger Next Year for Women, by Dr. Henry Lodge and Chris Crowley.  I’ve written about this before on my blog, so if you’ve missed previous posts, just ‘search’ their names within my site and you find the other articles.

We can help ourselves best by being healthy all-around.  It’s not just the outside we hear so much about that needs tending to… It’s the inside!  When we’ve got that right, we are on a good track to deal with all kinds of things life will throw at us from here on…

Thoughts?  Would love to hear from you.
