This month we’re taking a deep dive into a BILLION-dollar topic. No, that is not a typo! It’s all about staying healthy as you age.

This year, across the world people will spend $62 billion on anti-aging efforts.

That’s one of those numbers that is so big, it’s hard to imagine, am I right?

But imagine this: you don’t have to break the bank in order to be healthy at EVERY age.

Your health & wellness is like your retirement account. 

The consistent investments you make NOW – by eating a healthy diet, working out regularly, taking care of your skin/eyes/teeth, not smoking, etc. – pay off big-time deep into the future!

And the BEST part is, it’s never too late to start making those investments in your personal wellness account:

  • Working out creates a strong base of muscle (and bone!) that will keep you strong as you get older … plus of course, it keeps your heart & body healthy! 
  • Getting 7-8 hours of sleep a night builds a healthier and more focused brain. 
  • Finding ways to manage stress keeps your brain and body happy.
  • Eating healthy foods floods your body with the nutrients it needs to function optimally.
  • Building a social network keeps you feeling connected, which has a direct link to your feelings of wellness and well-being.

And so much more!

This means the workout plan you are following TODAY has the potential to pay off decades from now, and your decision to choose an apple vs. a cookie for your afternoon snack will, too!

It’s all about being CONSISTENT with small, good-for-you actions.

Here’s a challenge for you: 

Come up with THREE actions you can commit to this month that can help you feel better NOW – and into the future!

Some ideas:

  • Taking a walk after lunch
  • Ditching the sugary creamer in your morning coffee
  • Swapping your soda for water
  • Hitting the studio for 2 resistance training workouts this week

Basically: What can you do TODAY that your FUTURE YOU will thank you for?

​Maybe you’ve heard this saying: “You are only one workout away from a GOOD MOOD.” It’s SO TRUE – a workout can rev up your body’s feel-good hormones, give you a mental break, and shift your focus, which makes it a great way to turn your day around!
