Many baby boomers are familiar with the book Younger Next Year by Chris Crowley and Dr. Henry Lodge. It’s a book aimed at helping people learn the info they need to live more healthy and fit lives, and offers a unique and important look at anti-aging. If you haven’t yet checked out the book, here are 10 fitness insights that I gained from the book Younger Next Year.
Our lifestyles today have largely confused our bodies. We are living vastly different lives than what our bodies have been designed to do, which includes eating things that are not natural and not getting enough physical activity. We need to get more in tune with what our bodies have been designed to do.
Your body needs physical activity for the anti-aging process. Being active is the key to cell regeneration.
You have a choice when it comes to aging. You can just let it happen, by doing nothing, or you can work toward anti-aging, by choosing a healthy lifestyle.
Working with a personal trainer is the ideal way for baby boomers to get the most out of their exercise goals and to minimize risks of injury.
There is science behind all the good advice on health. You have heard for years that eating healthy and exercising is the key to longevity, but this book backs those claims up with the science that supports this notion.
A commitment to you and your health is essential. If you want to be proactive in the anti-aging process and live a longer, healthier life, you have to make yourself a priority and make the commitment to keeping yourself healthy and active.
Our bodies have been designed to move and be active. So not moving will only speed up the aging process. If you keep active, you will help to slow down the aging process.
While the information in the book was written for baby boomers, it can be applied to everyone. No matter the age, the ideas for reaching fitness and health goals can be obtained by following the information in the book, providing that it’s never too early or to late to strive for a healthy body.
Your efforts can lead to drastic changes. Even making small changes here and there can, over time, lead to important results that will impact your health. As will not making those changes.
There are no limits. When it comes to getting healthy and being active, it is a matter of progressing in a healthy way in order to minimize risks, and there are no limits, even when you are baby boomer!
