Brett Favre and the Ageless Athlete

Wow, what a game. The Vikings dominated every category, but turnovers.With that many fumbles it’s amazing we still had a chance.

But give credit to Brett Favre. The guy is 40 years old running around out there getting absolutely creamed.

It wasn’t long ago that a football player couldn’t last past 30, when they were considered too old. And Favre wasn’t the only one last weekend. Ryan Longwell, Jeff Saturday, Pat Wiliams, Darren Sharper, Mike McKenzie and the list goes on.

I always have to laugh when somebody tells me they are too old to do something, or they just turned 40 and it’s all down hill from there. Or that you just naturally will have achy joints and a belly past a certain age. It’s the aging process.

Hogwash.

It’s just an excuse for the choices that are made. Sure you slow down a little, and it will be harder to keep the weight off, but they are still just choices.

Did you know the research points to at least 75% of your health after age 40 is due to what YOU have done to your genes, not to the genes themselves?

That’s empowering.

It means that chances are if you put yourself in a health challenge that you can get out of it. Your genetics are just doing what they are told.

So let’s make some better choices and live a life in High Definition. It’s a heck of a lot more fun not being in pain all the time. I’m 31 years old, yet I feel better than I did when I was 21. No joke.

It’s partly due to taking good, high quality supplements for the last 10 years, especially the Isagenix program for the last 1 1/2 years.

And also, to at least once a month kinesiology based chiropractic care. I don’t think I would be feeling nearly as good as I do without it. Have a great start to the week, and remember that poor aging is just a choice. How you feel when you are 30, 50, 75 years old and beyond is up to YOU.
