I turn 46 today. My birthday is always a time I like to reflect on what I've achieved, what I need to work on and where I want to go.
Over the past year this word "longevity" has become a force in my life. I live a relatively healthy life. I exercise almost daily, eat well with some indulgences and get adequate but not quality sleep. Compared to most I live a healthy life but am I living a long life?
From day one of creating Get TriFIT I shared my view on exercise and nutrition; namely, that we should see movement and nutrition as a daily supplement we take to achieve optimum health. That movement is nature's anti-depressant and nutrition is medicine for the body
And I whole heartedly believe these things but it isn't enough - not enough if we want to live a long life of QUALITY.
The key words are long life and quality. Does anyone want to live a long life with poor health or worse as an empty vessel? I think deep down that is our biggest fear and we do EVERYTHING we can to put our head in the sand and ignore it.
Ignorance may be bliss short term but long term it is a silent killer. We must stop chasing a number on the scale or a dress size or some magical number of weight loss. We must stop seeing exercise and nutrition as these monoliths in our lives by always focusing on what we haven't done or worse ... the latest fad.
We DO need to start seeing exercise, nutrition and SLEEP for what they are .. the building blocks of our physical and mental health both currently and in the future. Most importantly exercise, sleep and nutrition are absolutely key to longevity. Living a long life of quality. AND THEY ARE EASILY ACCESSIBLE AND RELATIVELY LOW COST.
