How Fitness Helps Slow Down the Aging Process


Fitness actually is shown to slow down the aging process. I heard this today and was immediately excited and inspired. Think about how you feel when health and fitness aren't part of your life. Stressed, sluggish, ill and feeling old, right? When you start stopping is when you start getting older. Fitness works on the cellular, emotional and physical level. The better we care for our health and fitness, the better our body will be.

Fitness is the fountain of youth. If we don't make time for it, we will eventually be making time for illness. Our body ages daily, but there are things we can do to slow this process. Studies link eating healthy and exercise to longevity. I don't know about you, but I want to maintain the best body for life.

When we start stopping is the same as giving up. We get so caught up in believing fitness is a difficult process. We also become frustrated without instant results and begin shutting down. The negatives seem to outweigh the positives in our minds and ultimately lead to unhealthy choices.

You may believe the inability to lose 3lbs this week is a tragedy but how does that compare to someone who has lost a leg and still pushing?  We all need to fight for our fitness. This comes in different ways for each of us, but stopping is not an option. As long as we are taking positive steps toward our health goals, changes are happening. Have faith in the unseen and hold onto daily progress. Strength comes from the inside out. Don't start getting old and crumpled, feeling sorry for yourself because you decided to quit.

Age is just a number but we also create how we feel at every age and circumstance. Stop and suffer the consequences of aging more rapidly or continue and enjoy the vitality of youth. Life is full of choices and we are ultimately responsible for the outcome that is within our control.
