How To Keep Healthy And Fit Even At An Older Age

As the life span has considerably increased over the past decades, more and more people become obsessed with keeping healthy and fit for as long as possible. Nobody wants a life in which walking is difficult, joints ache and all bodily functions are troubled. We want to be sharp in our mind and agile in our body even by the age of 80 or even 90.

The good news is that everyone can learn how to keep healthy and fit. The bad news is that this requires a good discipline and the motivation to make the switch to a healthy lifestyle as soon as possible.

Nutrition and exercise are the two key factors that influence our well-being and our fitness level. If we give our body mainly junk food, the stomach is going to have a hard time to process it, the liver is also going to work more for getting rid of the toxins and all other organs,m the brain included, are going to suffer. If, on the contrary, we choose only foods that are organic, free from toxins and not too processed, we are going to enjoy a much better metabolism rate. The digestion is going to need less energy, leaving us ready for the other challenges in our life.

The second element, but as important as nutrition, is exercise. Each of us requires a certain amount of movement every day in order to keep the body healthy and fit. Even a brisk walk in the morning and in the evening could improve our health a lot if we do it each and every day. Moving constantly is more effective than going through consecutive periods of intense exercising alternating with very sedentary periods.

Briefly, moderation in everything is key to a good health for the entire duration of your life, even if you were to live 100 years.
