Happy Heart-Filled Valentine’s Day - Actifit Report: February 14 2020

Today is a special day — not only for romance, but also for letting people know you care. And just as importantly, for those of us who firmly believe in the life sustaining benefits of exercise, Valentine’s Day signifies the importance of heart health.

I have always believed in taking great care of myself. I read labels. I eat well — heavy on the veggies, light on the starch, etc. I take great supplements. I walk or exercise every day. One of the reasons I do these things is because I saw my parents decline in health, and watched my dad suffer toward the end of his life, ill and in pain from a range of ailments including heart disease. And he seemed far too young to me.

I have vowed to do much better. I want to live a long time — and not in failing health, but in vibrant health, doing all the things I love.

In honor of Valentines Day, I encourage us all to be fit and active, and care for our health.

Thank you gor visiting!

You are so right @jayna! My parents were kind of the same way. They didn't really have any super bad health issues, but because they were sedentary, they kind of just curled up. They both passed in their early 80's. I don't want to end up not being able to move, so I hike. Thanks for sharing how important this really is. Happy Valentine's Day, my friend! 💞

Thank you, @elizabethbit! I always hope to be a positive message amongst the helter skelter news and noise out there!

Difficult to exercise when one lives on borrowed time my friend.
I almost died after a severe motorbike accident in 1980. 3 months in hospital and 2 years in plaster.
Now the only thing that's strong is my heart, as back and legs don't work so well anymore. Thankfully I have never had a weight problem, but developing a bit of a paunch lately.
Glad that you are keeping an eye on your health and fitness, as it is so essential.

Oh my gosh, we are lucky to have you with us! I have been through the same, but can’t remember it because I was only two. And I healed fast. I think I was out of the body cast in under two months. You are so lucky to be alive.

Thank you my friend. Life is what it is and I am trying to do my best with the time that I was granted.
There was obviously a higher purpose for me to hang around and endurance is he name of the game.
Blessings and thank you for the kindness!

Indeed it is. And that is a great perspective - that you have a purpose. We all need that belief. I'm just sorry it was delivered to you in such a painful way!

Well during our talks about the accident my wife reminded me that perhaps the accident was a preventative measure, as I could later on have been killed in another accident. One never knows my friend, but I believe that all things works towards a better good!
Blessings and thank you for the care!

That’s an interesting perspective! I like it!

Thank you my kind friend!
