The Dangers of Inactivity
October 15, 2013
Paul Holbrook from Age Performance contributes to the discussion on KUER’s RadioWest with Doug Fabrizio. The topic is guided by guest James Levine, a professor of medicine at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona.
Exercise does not always take place in the gym. As you listen, see if you can find ways to implement ‘putting a spring in your step’ so you can take advantage of the opportunities presented in your daily routine of physical activity.
Of course not everyone has the means or environment where they can add a treadmill workstation to their office – but if you consciously put the effort and purpose behind your physical movement, you will benefit. Climb stairs at a slightly increased pace, or try a walk-and-talk meeting next time the chance arises. You may find that your efforts are not only beneficial to your own well-being, but it could affect your co-workers and colleagues as well.
Catch our interview on Radio West with Doug Fabrizio this Tuesday June 25, at 11:00 am. The program will be about aging well and the importance of power training with the aging population.
We like the phrase “Age Faster,” meaning we need to physically move faster as we age to help us navigate life better in our later years. Lou Borgenicht has come up with another good phrase we like.
The faster we age the slower we move, the faster we move the slower we age!
