Staying Fit – Why Staying Fit Is Not An Option

So, science has confirmed what many people have believed over time.  What is this confirmation?  Well, let’s just say that many people think that it’s quite possible to stay fit at any age.

What’s the verdict?  Basically, you’ll have to maintain a certain level of activity or increase your activity as you get older.  Why?  Simply put, it takes a little more work to stay healthy at an older age.

This doesn’t mean that people can’t stay as healthy as a 20 year old at the age of 50+.  This is crucial to reducing factors such as Cardiovascular Disease.

Why is this crucial?  According to a study, Women are 5 times more likely to get Cardiovascular Disease than a physically fit woman.  Same study provides evidence that Men are 8 times more likely to get Cardiovascular Disease for not being fit.  Good enough reason to stay fit?

This study was done in Europe, where they are always looking for more answers, unlike the American counter parts, who just want to find a quick fix.  Exercise is very crucial to anything we do.  Want to lose weight?  Want to stay fit?  Want those sexy abs?  Gotta exercise.

Happy Halloween

This post is to wish you all a Happy Halloween.  As of this writing, it’s currently October 31, 2011 at 5:47pm EST.

I was told by a friend that there was this guy running around in his car with a loud speaker, telling everyone that Halloween is Devil Worshiping.  Obviously, this guy knows nothing about Halloween.

First off, if you know anything about Halloween, then you know that Halloween is a Seasonal Festival.  In other words, Halloween represents Harvest time, the changing of Fall to Winter, and even Honors the dead.

OMG, But honoring the dead is a form of Devil worshiping.  On the contrary, “Honoring the Dead,” is a tradition that has been followed for many thousands of years.  Well beyond the years of Christ based Religion or Jewish religion for that matter.  Honoring the Dead merely means you’re paying tribute to them, for being there.  Much like families visiting gravestones of loved ones.

So, you can’t say that Halloween is Devil Worshiping.  That’s just a stupid notion brought up by some idiot, who thinks he’s right and wants to cause trouble.

One thing we need to realize as Human beings, is that no matter how hard you try, no two people are ever alike.  As long as there are two people on the face of the planet, you’ll always have arguments, fights, and the likes.  It is possible to get along without physically getting into a fight, but you’re still going to have fighting.

It’s the ability to set aside differences and exist, that make us unique.  So, set them aside and enjoy your Halloween.  Honor the dead tonight.  Visit a graveyard and pay respect.  Have fun and stay safe.
