Back when I was a kid, I lived extensively with my maternal grandparents.
Even though they were what I considered to be “old” and I had spent so much time with them, I hadn’t grasped on emotional and physical levels, what it meant to be “old” – and understandably so…
I was a healthy, vibrant kid. I was also a budding track athlete and because of my training, I had unbelievable stamina.
Growing old was the farthest thing on my mind.
So when my grandparents would complain about arthritis, or high blood pressure or not being able to move as quickly as before, I simply didn’t understand what was causing all those problems.
But as I traversed between my late 30s and early 40s, I started having a better appreciation for what the passage of time can do to one’s body.
I started noticing that I couldn’t sprint as fast as before, nor was I sleeping as well as I used to, and belly fat started to accumulate a bit.
All those changes …ugh.
After a while reality smacked in the face and I came to the conclusion that “hey David, you’re not a youngster anymore – wake up.”
And that my friend was a very sobering feeling. Because subconsciously, I felt I could chronologically get older while biologically not feeling noticeably different, as silly as this sounds.
My subconscious feelings were based on my fear of the consequences of getting old and my dislike of doctor visits and hospitals.
You know the expression “God helps those who helps themselves?” Well, I was not going to let “father time” just have its way with me and possibly end up with a life of disease, multiple doctor’s appointments, high medical bills, medication and surgery.
True, there are no guarantees of good health in life, but I was going to do my very best to stack the odds in my favor.
So I started reading couple free health newsletters and implemented some of the suggestions made with regards to nutrition, dietary supplements, and exercise. The information helped me tremendously reducing belly fat and improving sleep quality, my main areas of concern.
The two most important nuggets I gleaned from my readings and incorporated into my life were:
(1) There is a supplement that every man ought to be taking that does more (a lot more) to boost one’s overall health than any other supplement or pharmaceutical drug available.
This supplement fights against heart disease, stroke, diabetes, bad cholesterol, poor joints, may inhibit cancer and so much more. It will truly revolutionize your health from head to toe.
The supplement has decades of research behind it proving its effectiveness and yet there are so many people that are deficient in its nutrients. And there are those who recognize the importance of this supplement but unfortunately take an inferior brand of it, which can be harmful.
But in my research, I found a very high quality brand and quite frankly, I don’t go a day without it.
(2) There is a particular form of exercise that gives you better results in less time compared to other forms of exercises. It gets you leaner and conditions your heart and lungs faster than just doing aerobics/cardio. If you are pressed for time but want to see faster results from your exercise regimen, this is the type of exercise you want to be doing.
Now, you might be thinking, “is that it”? Just take that one supplement and exercise?
Well…often times simplicity is best.
But I promise you, if you incorporate the two things I mentioned above into your life, you will see amazing changes both inwardly and outwardly.
That said, I realize that you might also be looking for answers to health challenges that go beyond body fat composition and a poor sleep quality.
So on this blog, I will discuss tips on avoiding diseases as well as how to manage a variety of health issues.
I really enjoy sharing information that can have a positive impact on people’s lives. In a way, doing so makes me feel as if I am making some difference in the world, albeit small.
