How can I feel healthier longer?
A-Not only are we living longer, we are living better. While much of the extension of life expectancy and improved quality of life are due to advances in medicine and increased safety, many Americans have changed their lifestyles in ways that have seemingly trimmed ten years off their chronological ages. Whether it is exercising more, eating better or stressing less, there is a growing reservoir of knowledge contributing to the fountain of youth. It has long been known that individuals with high degrees of cardio respiratory fitness live longer. Now research that is more recent shows that being physically fit during middle age also leads to decreases in non-fatal chronic disease later in life. Now that we know greater fitness leads to both improved life quality and quantity, how does a person go about getting fit? One of the most effective ways to get in shape, at any age, is to get a fitness partner. Walking and working out in groups help ensure that an individual will stay with a fitness routine because fitness partners reinforce each other with their enthusiasm and commitment. People who exercise together stay engaged. P.S. To remain committed to your exercise routine, choose an activity that you think you will enjoy and set a regular exercise time.
