Take a cue from the Okinawans – who don’t jog or take Zumba classes. They spend over 97% of their lives healthy, fit, energetic and disability-free. How? By making exercise a part of their life – not something they take an hour out to do. They walk to friends’ houses, they garden, they bike to the store. And for fun, they may do tai chi or go dancing. But they treat exercise as a normal part of their everyday life. That’s according to the book “The Okinawa Program” by geriatric physician Bradley Willcox.
