Be Healthy

I eat well and exercise because I value time. It’s in our own hands — not completely, but nevertheless substantially — how many years, months and days we have left in this one life.

There’s no debate. How we age is determined by our lifestyle: food, exercise, stress, sleep etc. It’s insane to me that so many of my generation will start dropping in the next 30 years. It’s such a tragedy. I am not ready to stop yet. I wasn’t lucky enough to be born in the best circumstances. I’ve had my struggles, and I’ve been working my ass off every fucking day to get here. And I feel like I’m just at the beginning.

Though I cannot change my past, I can buy myself more time by making thoughtful but relatively basic choices. There’s so much more to go. It’s all about playing the long game. Be healthy. 🌿
