Comfort Life - Your guide to retirement & care

Defy your age starting today!

As men and women age, fears about getting older creep into everyday thinking.



We have all looked for ways to stay young, healthy and active. What are some of the things you have experienced?

Or perhaps you have never worked out before? Many people think their daily recreational activities or household tasks are enough for their health and wellbeing. Truth is, they're not!

AGING 101

Aging doesn’t just happen. Physical and mental decline are a result of a sedentary life and poor lifestyle choices. They are definitely not just because you are getting older. You can stop or even reverse the signs of aging.





THE DEFY AGING PLAN

STEP 1: MOVE YOUR BODY

You have to consciously exercise with an external resistance that is more than your body is used to lifting. This will help you:

Your exercise program should be designed specifically for your age; it should show you how to exercise correctly for success with the avoidance of injury. It can be done in the comfort of your own home if you wish or taken with you when you travel.

STEP 2: EAT

Planning three meals a day and snacks in between is the best way to a healthy, lean, strong body, and a sharp mind. Eat a variety of foods that are high in protein, good fats, fibre and whole grains.

STEP 3: PLAN

You must fit healthy aging into your busy schedule.

STEP 4: DEAL WITH STRESS

You must deal with stress to prevent elevated cortisol problems such as lack of sleep and increased risk of chronic disease.

Stop worrying and take action. It is never to early or too late to begin. You can be active with family and friends for years, travel the world for as long as you wish, do all of the activities you did in your 20s and 30s, sleep well all of the time and eat all of the foods you love to eat.

You can commit to healthy aging. Take just 1 step to continue to live the best years of your life.
