What is the Key to Staying Young?

Do you want to stay young? If you want to stay young, you don’t have to use special facial creams or start the latest fad diet. Believe it or not, you just need to use common sense and care for yourself. The most important step is eating a balanced diet; plenty of fruits, vegetables, and those types of things. You want to try to cut back on sugar and pre-processed foods. The other concept to get down is you don’t have to be perfect. You can have a piece of cake or pie and stop at a fast-food restaurant every now and then. Just limit the high-risk exposure. The other major step is exercise. Once again, you don’t need to be an Olympic athlete. Just get out there and participate. Make it fun. If you have fun, you will continue to play, and that is the key. The best way to achieve success with your diet or exercise is have a reasonable plan and to stick with it.

Exercise, Aging and Arm Pain

Exercise, Aging and Arm Pain

You might notice as you get older that you get more aches and pains. One of the places you get them is in the arm. If you’re not used to throwing or shooting or whatever, and you go out and attempt to do something, perhaps you’re hammering nails, and you haven’t done it in a while, your arms are not used to being stressed like that, and your muscles clearly are not used to being put in that position. The arm pain can be very frustrating. Make sure you ice down after every time you exercise. That will make a big difference in helping fight arm pain.
