“I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”
You may recognize the closing lines from Vermont’s poet laureate, Robert Frost, from "The Road Not Taken." In full and open disclosure, I am a shirtsleeve relative of this gent who offered his unrhymed iambic verses at the inauguration of John F. Kennedy 60 years ago.
With your interest piqued (hopefully), I’ll share my journey for Mind-Body Alignment [MBA] which was the theme of a recent GetSetUp blog post.
“When You come to a fork in the Road – Take it…” (Yogi Berra)
Our wonderful worlds are made, in part, by how, when, and why, each of us goes left or right, gees or haws, or blocks and tackles.* (Note: Blocking and tackling is an old reminder to use basic tools and resources to lift heavy loads)
We do this throughout three life phases:
a. Fortunate and/or focused decisions for roads taken from one’s early learning years, to
b. one’s growth years of adulthood and middle age, then
c. through one’s encore years when folks (like me) can enjoy and apply “felicities of age” to align mind and body.
How did I get to my NOW in my third act, after arriving in this wonderful world on a wintry Vermont night of February 1953?
A condensed, Frosty vitae reads:
I founded Well Past Forty, LLC in 2012 to compile, then share my lessons learned for health and fitness to better others’ journeys in this wonderful world. I’ve coached and helped hundreds of “athletes of all ages” to live longer and better.
Why? Investing one’s time and talent to thrive and strive is, most regrettably, a Road NOT taken by most American adults. “We” are generally more obese, sedentary, and unhealthy than centenarians known as happy and aligned BLUE ZONE residents.
Now, we may live longer than did earlier generations. Yet our immunities, hearts, minds, and bodies are chronically challenged by poor diets, polypharmacy practices, personal stressors, and modern environmental toxins.
I’ve evolved into a tour guide for healthy super-aging and physical banking to offset those challenges. A key “walk the talk” element of my touring and banking guidance is to keep our whole person aligned and tuned.
Yes, despite almost any medical or physical condition, we can improve and sustain sevens “S’s” in our vital physical banks:
2. Stability (balance)
5. Sustenance (clean, anti-inflammatory nutrients)
6. Sleep and
7. Stressing (Not!)
Well Past Forty’s JOIN the MOVEMENT theme is an aligned, systematic thrust that just might help you thrive and strive on your best road traveled.
