Do you believe it’s “natural” that by the time you reach your 60s,
your joints will be stiff, and you will have lots of pain?
If you accept that as a fact it is far more likely to be true for you.
Consider the idea of optimal wellness and being your best self.
To have the greatest health-span is something that needs to be addressed across the entirety of one’s life.
Do you know where disease is causing the most damage?
The most morbidity and reduction in performance is between the ages of 65 to 80.
This is the danger zone.
If you have the belief that it’s just a matter of time until your joints ache and you’re in significant pain,
then it’s unlikely you’ll want to live to be a centenarian?
Because maybe your first thoughts are of living in a nursing home,
with somebody feeding you.
That isn’t a great quality of life,
But what if you could live to be 100 years old
and only be sick for a week or a day?
That’s pushing back disease.
That’s increasing our health-span.
That is something you can work towards.
But to do that,
you can’t leave total responsibility for your health to doctors, to the NHS, to other people.
YOU have to take responsibility for your own health.
That begins with adopting a lifestyle that is conducive to helping your body fight disease.
Longterm sedentary behaviour results in many pains and problems for the body.
Regular movement throughout the day, ideally every 25 minutes is a great way to lessen the pain that many people endure
