Slowing the Aging Process

One of the most dramatic changes noticed as we age is increasing stiffness. Less flexibility.

Loss of flexibility is a gradual, insidious process that begins at a very young age. Most teens these days can't touch their toes. And the older they get, the farther away their toes seem to be.

Interestingly, I've noticed that people who are physically stiff tend to be mentally a little more stiff and closed. Those with flexible bodies are often mentally more open to new ideas and changes.

The second most widely translated book in the world is the Tao te Ching. One poem addresses physical and mental inflexibility. It states that "the hard and stiff will be broken, the soft and supple will prevail".

So, the choice is... be like an old oak and snap in the wind. Or bend like a sapling, bouncing back without damage.

It's a whole pile easier to "go with the flow" if you don't break in the process.

Want to stay younger, longer? Want to slow your aging? Then increase your flexibility!

Unlike aerobic capacity which is lost in a short period of time, flexibility gained stays longer. Gain 1/4 of an inch in a month, you have gained 3 inches in a year.

Take actions every day to loosen and stretch. Slow and steady wins the flexibility race. Be patient and persistent.

The Tai Chi for Busy People and 4 Minute Fitness videos both offer full range of motion flexibility movements, as well as exercises that improve flexibility in the most important (and most often forgotten) joints in your body - your spine.

Take action for a few minutes everyday, and look and feel younger!

Question Period

Q. How can I deal with my fear of flying?
A. Here are some ideas that will help with fear of any sort. Spend some time breathing deeply into your abdomen. Deep breaths automatically reduce anxiety and fear, and increase focus.
Secondly, on each exhale, remind yourself that all is well (say it, think it, feel it), and visualize yourself completely surrounded by safety.
And then, most importantly... SMILE as you are breathing. As you likely know, smiling changes your mental state, whether of not you feel like smiling.
