Quit smoking and quit hanging around people who haven’t.
Tired about hearing how good exercise is for you?
I’ll stop writing about it as soon as studies stop revealing its awesome and widespread physical, mental, emotional and psychological powers.
Here’s the latest good news: Regardless of your earlier (or current) exercise habits — from spotty to nonexistent — being active in mid-life significantly improves your chances of aging without cognitive or physical impairments or developing a chronic illness.
Read again, please. Read the part that says “regardless of your current exercise habits.” Read the part that says “significantly improves…” Read again and RIGHT NOW schedule in that Pilates, spin, circuit, Cross-Fit, step/sculpt, water aerobics, weight-training, kickboxing, Barre3 class, that morning run (walk) (swim) with a friend. Because according to this new report from the much-esteemed Nurses’ Health Study, a long-term, on-going survey of more than 13,500 women that has netted much important (and life changing) health data, it is NEVER too late to start benefiting from physical activity. And the benefits are extraordinary.
