Baby Boomers and Health

Monday, March 29, 2010 | Category: Function

I don't get the paper anymore.

There's just way too much pessimism and gloom and doom.

If something is bad enough, sure enough someone will tell me so why read the newspaper or watch the news for that matter.

I do like to read the sports section though.  That section's pretty safe to read.

And so is the Life section.  That is until I read it a week ago.

There was an article talking about baby boomers and exercise.  It talked about how exercising was a cause of baby boomers' hips, knees, and spines wearing out because they want to do what they did 20 years ago.

Hopefully you see where I'm going with this.

If not, I'll spell it out for you:

In general, we have too many people who look for excuses not to exercise, and to give them one more is absolutely RIDICULOUS!

I agree that sometimes we have to tone down the exercises we used to do.  But to say that exercising is the cause of the breakdown is very shortsighted.

Much of the problem is that these same individuals needing hip or knee replacements in their 50's or 60's are the result of not taking care of themselves while they were in their teens, 20's and 30's.

A huge part of taking care of yourself is staying physically balanced, or in other words, having good posture.

Think about this for a minute:  If your body is not balanced, causing more wear and tear on your joints, muscles, and nerves, do you think your body will breakdown quicker? 

Plus, if your body isn't balanced, and then you walk, jog, run, jump, bike, or lift weights (which puts more stress on an imbalanced structure), that will cause your body to wear out quicker.  Just like if you had four different sized tires on your car, the engine will have to work harder and breakdown faster than if the entire car was balanced.

Exercise can have a detrimental effect on your body and health if you are not physically balanced.

If the article in the paper had said that, I would've whole heartedly agreed.

I explain this topic and many others in my new book, Get Healthy Now for Life:  A Practical and Easy to Follow Guide to a Healthy Life.

I just ordered my proof copy and I'll get it next week!

If everything looks good, I'll release it within the next few weeks.

In the next few posts, I'll give you more information about Get Healthy Now for Life so you can see how it can help you and your family get healthy!
