Make being healthy one of your hobbies

It certainly will be something that serves you well throughout your life. Make it fun. Study and learn as much as you can about what modern science and research says contributes to living a long healthy life. Devise a plan that is yours; then follow it. Get excited about living a vibrant healthy life; it is a worthy goal. Being healthy contributes (statistically) to living a long life. From about the time I was in my teens I have thought of old age as being 30 years older than I am at the time. Smile. I still feel that way today; I will be 72 my next birthday.

Spend your life on the playground

For me the concept of playground includes the following: physical activity, lots of physical activity, a wide variety of physical activity and movement, my socialization in part, girlfriends, boyfriends, balls of various shapes and sizes, slides, merry go rounds, swings, monkey bars, jump rope, Jacks, hopscotch, gaiety, laughter, Inventing new games,Learning to take my turn (smile), being on a team, playing by myself… Certainly not limited to these things. My life is relatively physical (I ride a bicycle for 12 miles 4 to 6 times a week). I practice juggling most days. I do some resistance training (in my life I have done a lot more). I do a wide variety of movement and activity exercises each day. Movement is key. Movement is crucial. Movement sustains us. Spend your life on the playground.
