I just finished a great book called “Younger Next Year” by Chris Crowley and Harry Lodge. If I can summarize, it explores aging and critical factors that can delay what we often think of as the inevitable signs of aging. I’m a convert!

They believe we can have a thoroughly active life into our 80’s and 90’s by following Harry’s Rules, listed below:
1. Exercise six days a week for the rest of your life.
2. Do serious aerobic exercise four days a week for the rest of your life
3. Do serious strength training, with weights, two days a week for the rest of your life.
4. Spend less than you make.
5. Quit eating crap.
7. Connect and commit.
I’m convinced and am giving it at try.
