I’ve never been a physio-nerd at all; like following what my body is doing as I get older and if or when I should start worrying about stuff. I decided to dive into a book and find out what’s in my near future for my age. After 30, stuff happens, after 40 more and different stuff happens and so on, and so on. I work with guys who are younger than me so I see what they are up against right now and kind of compare that to what my “physio-whatevers” were doing back then. that has been a bit of a white elephant but did convince me that everyone, yes Virginia, everyone is created differently.
I had someone recommend (can’t remember who, but I’m told that more exercise will increase short-term memory) a book about 40-something guys’ health stuff. So I took their advice and decided to figure what’s going on b/c I can’t figure out what I think should be happening, and what I think shouldn’t be happening – that made no sense, but maybe exercise will help preventing making statements like that too.
Anyway, it’s go a lot of interesting facts backed up by this or that PhD or institute of something or other; it is interesting reading and it make sense when my brain tries to decipher each chapter. Bottom line, I’m going to live; the other part of my findings so far is that I can live longer if I do and don’t do certain things. Of course every single syllable sounds like common sense – but we know common is sense isn’t common; so I’m learning which is good and like I said just from what I learned so far, it could (totally) be much worse.
This month my first endeavor will be to join a Couch To 5K group at my company’s health center. That should be fun, and rewarding according to this book. I’ll let you know how it works out.
