Why movement, sleep and work life balance are important as we age!
Yes, as a 56-year-old I get it Aging is a natural process and not to be feared. It does not come alone; it is coupled with an increase in wealth and wisdom. One must wonder, if an increase in age leads to an increase in income and knowledge, why do we fear growing old?
It is only logical to think that we are not scared of grey hair, but what it signifies – a visual reminder that our days are numbered.
Developing good fitness habits early I’m sure has paid you off well. The great news is that it’s never too late to reboot your fitness campaign, let me share the awesome things I did in my 20’s that have allowed me to stay away from a walking stick, increase my wealth and wisdom, and prevent crow’s feet around my eyes now in my 50’s!
SLEEP NAKED AND LIKE A BABY
That doesn’t mean that you wake up every 4 hours and cry then repeat …. Let’s get serious now! When you sleep naked you don’t have to worry about PJ’s `getting twisted. These distractions go away when you sleep naked and it may help you get better, deeper sleep. You see when your temperature is increasing, you’ll feel more alert and awake, but when the temperature drops you feel drowsier. sleeping naked can lead to you feeling better about yourself. How many times have you heard that you’ve to spend sleepless nights to achieve lasting success in life? Now, you know just how important it is to provide your body and muscles with the time to heal and recover from the intensity of working out.
I am sure we have all been told and pushed towards sacrificing our sleep to meet just another deadline or finish yet another to do on your list. As paradoxical as I might sound right now, you do not need to lose out on your night-time sleep to achieve anything in life. Other than the haunting dark circles that follow insomnia, a lack of sleep can adversely affect your mental and physical health. Anxiety, dementia, obesity, early aging – almost all the syndromes can be traced back to a lack of sleep. In my early years, I might have lost out on a few things, but sleep has never been one!
Lights out at 9:30 PM is a ritual at my house. While it helped me in recovery, it helped my mum to keeping us quiet – a win-win for all.
STAY ACTIVE TO AVOID INJURIES
Try to not just lift weights, but also do some cardiovascular exercises to increase blood flow and balance the hormones. If hormones such as melatonin are balanced in your body, your circadian rhythms – the clock that regulates your sleep will be just fine. The reality is that it takes effort-focused, persistent, dedicated work toward a fitness goal-to create anything of value. Despite what fake fitness gurus say there are no shortcuts in this lifestyle you either do the work or you don’t and you either transform your body or you don’t. I Cringe every time I see someone, I know hunting for short cuts to success, secretly obsessed with avoiding effort. Gotta get more for less. Gotta work smarter, not harder, Gotta find an easier way. Its total BS
It’s all about knowing deep down that we’re tough sons of bitches and that’s especially true as we age. That we are wired differently from everyone else. That while we may not always win, we never lose because we didn’t work out hard enough.
Remember how we mentioned we shouldn’t fear aging, we fear the impending doom and the thoughts of leaving our worldly abode. To live a life of contentment, one must maintain a good work-life balance. Happiness in our younger years evolves into feelings of contentment at a later stage. It is only with a good work life balance that we can truly stay happy and fulfilled even as we age, do what I do and use the Test & Measure principle have nonnegotiable like working out a certain number of times a week and have a mate or partner to keep you accountable you be surprised how they can really help whip you into shape just by keeping you accountable.
To embrace the above-mentioned is not easy. However, it is so bloody worth it.
Fitness goals take time, rid yourself of the BS stories such as I will start Monday, I don’t have enough time, my body hurts after exercise, I am too embarrassed, I don’t have any gym activewear – excuses believe me I have heard them all. My advice you can start small steps right now and each day use what I call Leanmuscle Stacking Principle whereby your making small changes for amplified results, you will soon notice how every additional minute of sleep and exercise, and excessive sugar that you say no too, and clean food that you eat in your early or recent years will help you pave your way to success in life.

As I watch them discover inner qualities, they did not know they possessed, I find myself learning something new from them, their challenges and how they dig deep to find the strength to overcome them.
