      Yes, Robin, Gilly’s inspiration is so good after a long hard winter! Get out & run or at least get up & move!

      Have a pleasant Spring! Is it here for you?

      Hi Dawn,

      Exercise should be a member of our lifestyle and routine. Do you exercise on a regular basis?

      Keep moving to keep your youth!

    I am really glad I work out! You have given me the motivation to never stop!  The other thing I notice is when people smoke, that really ages them.  You can see it in their faces and hear it in the sound of their voice.

      Absolutely, i see this all the time too. the wonderful part is when they've pulled quit smoking and start exercising. Amazing changes inside and out are taking place. I'm glad I've motivated you Ana! 😀

      Hi Ana Maria,

      You are so right about smoking aging people. Recently I went to the memorial service of a 94 year old lady from my hometown. My best girl friend also was there plus a couple other friends we graduated with. My girl friend and I were discussing the aging process. We are both 70 years old. One of our other friends that was there is the same age but she looks and moves like she is at least 20 to 25 years older than we look and act. One of the main differences in both her looks and health is that she has smoked heavy since during highschool… That is at least 55 years of smoking. She has many health problems including cancer. It is so very sad that she is not healthy enough to enjoy her senior years. You mentioned voice. She used to sing beautifully when we were in school together.. now she can hardly speak, let alone sing.

      Keep your motivation to work out and be healthy!

    Confession time, I have never exercised nor did I or do I want to. That being said, I cannot ignore all the facts, encouragement and wisdom presented by Gill, Pat and others. So, I am doing simple stretches daily, walking a bit more than before and am pleased I got started. Fortunately, I don't have much stress and tend to deal well with it when it shows up. I sllep well and eat well and am aging well.

      Hi Roslyn,

      Confession time for me as well! I have really never been that excited about exercising. However, I do have to admit it does feel good to exercise once I get started so I have to have strong will-power to exercise on a regular basis. I’m not really the atheletic type. I just know it is necessary to have overall good health. I’m glad you are not ignoring the facts and are doing some exercise.

      Stay healthy!

      Pat

    I plan to age gracefully without going to extreme measures. I decided that I won't let stress show on my face

    I love walking and use it to de-stress.  I always believe that it's essential to have a good night's sleep plus eating well.

      Hi Diana,

      Yes, regular exercise like walking is great to de-stress. And, of course eating well adds to the benefits you receive from the walking. It’s too bad more people do not look to exercise and a healthy diet to get a good night’s sleep instead of some type of sleeping aid.

      Rest well!

    I powerwalk an hour a day, every day, taking an occasional Sunday off just so I know what day of the week it is.  😉  I credit all the walking with helping me get through stressful periods where my business projects weight down on me.  I'm so glad to see I'm doing at least something right to keep age a bit at bay!

    Such an uplifting post! Health is important and knowing that there are things we can do to improve our well being, is great! I know stress is bad, really bad and from personal experience, what has helped me, is exercising, walking and/or relaxing in a hot bath with Epsom salts and essential oils. Thanks for sharing this post with Gilly as your guest.
