We all know that exercise is important, but research from the National Health Interview Survey showed that vigorous physical activity could add years to your life. However, science also shows that even small increases in movement during the day can have profound positive health benefits!
Many assume that how a person ages is carved in “genetic stone.” But studies continue to show that for most of us, lifestyle choices and behaviors have far more impact on longevity and health than our genes.
Unless you’ve inherited a rare genetic disorder or have been in an accident, everyone generally starts aging at a similar rate. By the time we hit our 30s, however, biologic function and performance has already started to decline for many. The rate of decline varies dramatically among individuals. While some people will lose a function as they age, others will show almost no decline at all. In fact, for many functions some people can even improve as they progress from thirty-five to eighty years.
How can you be one of those people who show almost no decline over time?
Physical fitness plays a key role in helping you to build stress resilience, prevent chronic disease, and age well. The goal is not necessarily to live longer but to live better, suffering less illness and disability.
