Lesson 2 - Bust the Aging Myths

Myth #3 - The horse is out of the barn

Many consider age-related changes irreversible. For instance, lifelong smokers might think, "there's no point in stopping now-my breathing is already bad."  People who’ve never exercised, might think,  “It’s too late to start now. It won’t do ay good”.

Fortunately, they are mistaken. In fact, studies have shown that we can recover lost function and decrease our risk of disease by adopting new healthy behaviors at any age.

Of course, If you feel you have an irreversible age-related problem, it’s important to check with your doctor.  However, in almost every case, by adopting healthier habits you can improve your health and quality of life.
