How to stay young fit and beautiful

We live in a culture of convenience, every person obsessed with staying young, thin and beautiful no matter the cost. 

Adverts screaming Get Fit Fast, Lost 10LBS in 24hrs and Lose weight feel great. 

Magic pills for everything, Aloe Vera and Vinegars. Sold with the promise we will look younger, be thinner and never have to exercise again. 

Meet Ernestine Shepherd. 80 Years of age, exercising daily, drinking water and looking after her body so that it can look after her. 

As humans we were born to work for food. To walk to a water source, to walk and run and climb to forage for fruits and vegetables. To burn thousands of calories per day just to eat, and now? We turn on a tap, open a fridge or set a microwave. We don't even have to go that far. Food is in abundance, exercise not so much. 

We have an obsession with being skinny or super thin over being fit an healthy. 

If you want to stay young, fit and healthy. Exercise, drink water, don't smoke and lay off the junk food and alcohol. 

Fillers, Botox and tummy tucks don't add to your life expectancy. They don't make you fit enough to play with your kids longer. Taking care of yourself does. 

How you walk in the skin you wear is your decision.
Why not embrace it?
What other choice do you have?
