Recently just before the cold snap I leaped into Quarry lake part of Pure Austin Fitness in Austin,Texas. The photographer Richard Whittington was about to get the one shot of two beautiful 66 yr olds leaping into the lake in evening clothes. This is for the cover of my book. I was worried about making sure the shot was right. So I took a leap in and again. Until Richard had the right angle. The shot of me is of course before I get my 12 pack this time next but what the hell. Two new studies have shown if you don’t believe you are as old as your chronilogical age you will be happier, healthier and it is a way to create better later years.
One of the two studies is in the November issue of American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry The study comes as recent research suggests aging is both a subjective and biological experience. A younger self-image was more common in physically active people with a lower body-mass index, the latest study found. The other study is from Yale University.
Take a leap, yes it might be uncomfortable. Practice getting out for a fast walk. Cutting out sugar and hell go for it. You are as old as you think you are. And now there’s more proof !
