Growing older and death are two things that are still batting around 100% our society is living longer today then it has in a long time (this might be changing), but are we living a longer QUALITY of life. I would argue in most cases no.
When a friend shared this video with me I was in awe of her abilities. Her strength was incredible, balance spectacular, and flexibility… flexible. I didn’t realize until after the video that she is 86 years old.
These types of displays of growing old gracefully are the extreme, but show what the human body is capable of when we don’t neglect it. When we make sure we are continually doing resistance training, and eating whole foods that fuel our body.
Let’s all think of Johanna the next time an “I am too old” thought comes through our mind.
