Stop putting junk into your body as you age for optimum health and greater energy!

If you start a walking program for yourself, it is a lot more fun to do it with someone else than alone. So call a friend or family member that can find time to walk with you. Just think, if you found someone to keep you company, you can talk about different things that could eventually lead to stress relief and get in your exercise as well. They will be appreciative that you thought about them and both of you will be accomplishing something great. After taking a walk, be sure to cool down because after walking at a certain pace you need to relax and bring your heart rate to a normal pace. Always remember though that when you walk it doesn’t have to be for a long period of time but just walking 30 minutes a day can make a difference.
I advise all my clients over the age of 40 to take a good quality glucosamine/chondroitin supplement. Why do I do that? Because our joints begin to lose their ability to manufacture cartilage and to keep that cartilage lubricated. If your joints dry out or lose cartilage, you get a bone-on-bone reaction, which is very painful, resulting in inflammation and arthritis. That’s a simplified explanation, but close enough. It’s enough to know that glucosamine production, which is a major component of cartilage, declines with age, so it’s worth supplementing to keep joints functioning as they should. When your joints are pain-free, you feel more like being active. It’s a win-win.
