My awareness of health dates back to 8th grade

Disney's Grand Floridian Christmas Tree 2019
Disney’s Grand Floridian Christmas Tree 2019.

My awareness of health dates back to 8th grade.

That’s when i decided i wanted to become a Gym Teacher, or as it’s politically correct to say, a Health and Physical Education (PE) Teacher.

In 1977, i entered West Chester State College to earn a BS in Health and PE.

Nutrition.

Exercise.

Habits.

Wellness.

Teaching in public schools.

The next generation of adults.

How to live a healthy life.

So yeah, 8th grade was in 1971-1972.

Is that really 47 years ago?

Looks like my efforts to change the world failed.

The good news, i have been able to consistently change myself to become healthy and well.

Perhaps, if i’m lucky, i can help change two others to not conform to society’s poor health and habits and rituals.

Having and not having are equal?

Feynman quote
Yes and, do you expect to be healthy, because i expect you to be healthy.

Is not wanting something as satisfying as having it?

Not wanting it is like having it.

For example, chocolate. Having no desire for chocolate is satisfying. Eating chocolate also satisfies. The desire is quenched either way.

Satisfying.

No?

Except maybe, for example, not wanting personally vibrant health.

Can we age without getting old?

Fall hiking in Glacier
Hiking Highline Trail next to Haystack Butte, back in September. Age should not have us wondering if we can or cannot hike through mountain trails.

 

Yesterday’s workout was a great reminder of how being relatively pain-free is one of our bests gifts to ourselves.

i’m “nursing” a shoulder pain that came out of nowhere. It’s likely brought on from repetitive overuse, or from some of the new exercises i’m doing.

As we age and lead less active lifestyles, our muscles, tendons, ligaments, joints, cardiovascular system, skin, tissue and so on becomes worn with use and disuse.

Crystalized intelligence – all butts will sag

Disney University
Yesterday, November 5, 83 degrees at Disney University.

 

Crystalized intelligence – all butts will sag.

The Magic with our Golden Years, if we invested well, is that aging will go much better for us than if we hadn’t invested decently in cardio, strength, nutrition, rest, flexibility, core, and motivation.

If you have yet to reach your Golden Years, here’s to decent investing.

Is it ever too late to invest more?
