How I Optimize my Physical Health There are so many options when it comes to getting your heart rate up, but some of my favorites include jogging, practicing yoga, and getting’ my groove on in Zumba classes. Enjoying these levels of fitness helps me to still feel young and strong. If there is ever a day that I’m not able to dance, jog, or hold my Warrior, I will have failed myself and my resolve to stay healthy and young. Keeping my heart, lungs, and muscles healthy are so important to me in my quest to live as long as possible! Exercise, especially yoga, keeps my mind healthy as well. I’m relieving stress, clearing my mind, and creating healthy endorphins. How I Optimize my Intellectual Health This is an easy one. Reading and Writing. I just can’t get enough of either one! Every day, I am learning more and more, with the resolve to keep my brain working. As my paternal grandmother suffered Alzheimers, and my maternal grandmother showed signs of dementia, I feel strongly that I must keep my brain active and healthy in order to stay young. Focusing on my Intellectual, Emotional, and Physical Health puts me in charge of the aging process, and helps put me at ease for the upcoming 60+ years of my life. What do you do to keep yourself young?
