Have we discovered the fountain of youth?


Have you ever noticed time seems to move faster as you age? The clock ticks for all of us, and with each tick our bodies slowly change. The changes are slow and gradual, but they do add up.

As a society, we are all living longer, but are we healthier? The way we win the game of life is to stay as healthy as we can for as long as we can without suffering from the ravages of aging. There is one extremely important, yet simple activity we we can all start today that will prevent Father Time taking his toll….exercise.

To keep our bodies feeling youthful for as long as possible, we need to do what our bodies have been designed for….movement. Let’s be honest, after a long day of work, fighting traffic, helping the kids with homework, making dinner, and paying the bills, the last thing we want to do is exercise. But to get energy we need to give energy by exercising. 2,400 years ago, Hippocrates wrote, “That which is used develops; that which is not wastes away.”

As adults, no one looks forward to aging, but it doesn’t have to be as bad as we make it out to be. We can’t stop the clock, but most can slow its tick and enjoy life with energy and vigor. D. Michael Salse once wrote, ” Every man and woman wants to live a long life, but what good is longevity if you feel like you’ve been ran over by a truck?” Regular exercise, along with a good diet, good medical and chiropractic care, good genes, and a bit of luck, can make it happen.
