Once we've passed the age of 40, most of us realize having the metabolism of a high school cross-country runner--where you can eat everything in sight and still keep that lean body--well, those days are behind us. What that means is that now, we have to understand our body more in order to manage our weight.

Moving the body is how we burn calories. Regular exercise plays a multifaceted role in promoting both weight loss and reversing the aging process. Regular exercise:

  • Increases metabolic rate/helps burn more calories
  • Promotes the growth of lean muscle mass, which not only burns more calories at rest but also improves metabolic health   
  • Enhances cardiovascular function, supporting nutrient transport throughout the body, crucial for cellular repair and rejuvenation
  • Reduces inflammation and oxidative stress, two key factors that cause you to notice aging
  • Releases endorphins, which combat stress and contribute to an overall sense of well-being. By integrating exercise into daily routines, individuals can not only achieve weight loss goals but also enjoy the rejuvenating effects that combat the aging process

This means that step #1 is to; find what form of movement you enjoy! Whether it's dancing, tennis, weight training, hiking, or yoga; connect to what it is you love about that form of exercise. What draws you back to it? For me, yoga has helped me maintain not only my weight but my posture and agility as well. It's not just about getting bendy; it's about tapping into a well of vitality that keeps us feeling youthful, vibrant, and alive.

Whatever form of exercise is your go-to; prioritize time for it. Put it on your calendar and don't let it get pushed aside!
