I'm not sure most people, given a variety of food choices, would choose the most healthy. I do agree that smoking shortens anyone's life span. However, this walking thing.
I live in an over 55 community, with lots of folks in thei 80s and 90s, many of them really active. We have community parties every few months and they are dressed up, dancing, shoving down margaritas and enjoying themselve overall.
There is one commonality amongst all of these people. They walk. Rain or shine, they walk - not once in awhile, but everyday. Many have small dogs as companions. I call them 'an exercise machine with hair." I really believe walking is the fountain of youth.
We don't have to walk to fetch water anymore, or work in the fields, so we have to invent ways to move. No matter where you live,you can walk. Around the block, from one end of your house to another, in the sand, on the sidewalk, on a mini-trampoline. It's the one exercise that costs nothing, that can be done anytime, anywhere and the most effective way to longevity. Try it! You'll like it!
Commit to walking everyday and you wil
