Are You Part of the Seven Percent?
Did you know there is a Seven Percent Solution that you are probably not a part of? What Seven Percent, you ask? The Seven Percent above age 50 who engage in regular exercise. Are you one of us?
I am a Seven Percenter! It was nice to read that I was so special. But, sad to read that the number of people in my age group - Baby Boomers - is so sedentary!
If you walk 20 minutes a day, you are a Seven Percenter too! How easy is that?
Again, it's not rocket science. It's plain old common sense. Especially for us Boomers, remaining physically active is keeping us healthier, living longer with better quality of life.
I see sick people every day at work. Very, very few of them, regardless of age, has serious health problems if they are physically active and get in their 150 minutes of exercise each week.
If you are still taking baby steps toward this goal of 150 minutes a week, keep at it. After a few weeks, it becomes so much easier that you'll find yourself looking forward to the break from your other activities and be encouraged to increase your activity time or intensity.
Good for you! For the Ninety-Three Percenters, the evidence is clear. You need to join our team and get walking!
*************************** Remember my 100% GUARANTEE. Should you decide to stop walking and resume your old habits, I personally guarantee that you'll get back 100% of your former life - your pain, your lifestyle, your attitude. You can trust the information you find here. It's from a dedicated walker. Trust me and your life will get better! I promise.
