EXERCISE! I just got my cholesterol results and my doctor asked me what I do to keep it so low! Exercise, and eating well, most of the time. (We have to have a little fun!)
Let me share with you why exercise is the fountain of youth. The authors of Younger Next Year -Dr. Henry S. Lodge and Chris Crowley say that 70% of premature death and aging is lifestyle-related.
Heart attacks, strokes, the common cancers, diabetes, most falls, fractures and serious injuries and many more illnesses are caused by the choices we make each day about how we live. Dr. Lodge says we could put off 70% of normal aging problems and eliminate more than half of all disease in men and women over fifty – With exercise!!! We can biologically BE at least 5 years younger than the calendar states. Exercise truly is the fountain of YOUTH!! The only challenge is what? Our will, determination, commitment and finding a way to make exercise FUN!
Gabriele, a coaching client, had the same on and off relationship to exercise that many of you do. I saw her a couple of weeks ago and she said, “I love to exercise.” She has made the leap and exercise is now her HABIT!! She started biking and walking with girlfriends. You know how the time flies when you’re talking with friends!
If you like to dance there’s a new craze going around the gym called “Zoomba” which is like Latin jazzercize. I have to say I felt a bit klutzy the first time, but it was a blast!
Here’s a coaching challenge for you: Make a decision to start NOW – this week, preferably tomorrow to put some type of movement into your life. Commit to three months of walking, biking, dancing,hanggliding (not for everyone) 3x a week. Schedule it into your day and please remember I would love to coach you to make exercise a fountain of youth habit!
Blessings & Lots of JOY & Love,
I’ll be traveling next week to Bend, Oregon for my first book tour. I’m so excited (and a little anxious) – all the same energy, right? Just found out yesterday Joan Dudley, of The Sol Center, has booked me on a TV show and so I’ve contacted Bill Manville, a good friend of mine who worked as a Managing Editor of Cosmopolitan Magazine, for tips on how to show up for a TV spot. I’ll fill you in next time about how the trip goes.
My INTENTION is to have FUN, stay peaceful, joyful and in the flow.
Each time I’m faced with stretching into a new experience, there’s a little anxiety – BREATHE – ah…. and stay in the moment. Always works out and I love the challenge.
