Exercise Helps Us Embrace Every Stage of Life
Are you worried about getting older? Replace that anxiety with positive thinking and it will add years to your life – 7.5 years, according to aging expert Amy Gorely, who has launched an anti-ageism campaign called “Be Bold, Claim Old.”
Instead of being bummed out about lost youth or worried about what might happen later, we should celebrate every age of life, Amy says. Exercise plays a key role, and working out is one of the sure-fire ways to improve your mood and light up your smile.
“What’s good for the body is also good for the mind,” she says. Exercise fights cognitive decline and helps improve focus, mood, memory and other issues often lumped in with “getting old.”
Every time you exercise, you’re not just helping yourself: You’re blasting ageist stereotypes and maybe even inspiring others.
