Hi, I’m Ron. As I enter my Golden Years (I’m 66 at the time of this writing), I’m becoming more aware and interested in the different healthy lifestyle tips and techniques that I can use to stay as healthy as I can for as long as I can. While the aging process continues to march on, there are things I can do to get into or stay in the best shape I can so the effects of aging are diminished as much as possible. My goal with this website is to share those tips with you.

Things like good nutrition, adequate exercise, getting enough quality sleep, avoiding unhealthy habits and management weight are just some of the keys to staying healthy and feeling younger than your numerical age. There are things you can do right now that will have an effect on your health almost immediately; other things will take longer, but it is never too late to start regardless of your health situation or age!
In regard to the above topics, like good nutrition, many of us do not eat the right types or quantity of food. In our rushed day, we sometimes resort to eating fast or processed food more times than we should. As we grow older, our metabolism slows down and if we are eating the same amount of food as we did when we were younger, we will put on weight – a huge issue in older adults. This in turn leads to other health issues, such as obesity and diabetes.
Another area often overlooked is exercise. Not only does getting some daily exercise help burn off those extra calories you are eating, if you burn off more calories than you eat, you’ll lose weight. Strength training is a type of exercise all of us should be doing at least a couple times per week (but not on back-to-back days). It keeps our bones strong and delays, prevents, and in some cases, reverses bone loss. It also helps build lean muscle for that toned sexy body you always wanted (or wanted to get back).
Besides strength training, yoga and Pilates are two exercise programs that can help increase balance and flexibility. They can also help relieve stress and we can all use a little of that in today’s hectic world.
Just so you know, I do not have a degree or even any credentials in health and fitness, my degree is in business administration. But what I do have that is relevant is an insatiable passion for healthy lifestyle living and because like many of you, I want to stay as young and healthy for as I can for as long as I can. Information in this blog can help you do that too.
