So for over a year I have been using this forum to share my thoughts on what I feel fitness might be, and just as importantly, what it might not be. I have shared my evolving values, based on my changing experiences in my so-called fitness life.
This blog has not been a platform where I have shared very much information from beyond my own head. I am making an exception today. I would like to share this lecture from Blue Zone authority, Dan Buettner. It’s just under 20 minutes long, and well worth the time you will invest in watching it.
As we all believe our fitness lives are so important, this is a great reminder that just living a balanced life might minimize our dependency on what we call fitness. This is not a case against mindful eating or exercise, but it does demonstrate that what we think of as fitness is not necessarily going help us live longer.
I was reminded of two Roy-memes as I watched this:
1) The car with most and hardest miles on it will likely good to the junkyard first.
2) Animals with faster metabolisms live relatively shorter lives.
Just some food for thought and discussion. roy (please be patient for the video below to show up in your browser — it’s a slow load.
