The vast majority of information and advisories on the internet cater to the 22 to 50 year old age group, many of which are co-ed. From age 30 forward, the male body begins a series of ongoing changes, which if not controlled, will result in a vast array of gradually debilitating medical problems along the way and pre-mature death.
GoldenGeezers.com is an on-line advisory service that proposes to make men 55 years of age and older aware of these changes and how to counter them. The changes may be gradual but the vast majority of men will suffer from one or more of them. Some facts:
- One in three men have high blood pressure
- Nearly 50% take medication for cholesterol
- About 80% suffer from acid reflux and don’t enjoy food
- Some 60% have sleep problems
Nearly all suffer from some aches, pains, and experience side-effects from their medications.
The good news is you are NOT destined to suffer regardless of genetics or family histories. However, you must have decided interest in your own health and be willing to work at maintaining a high level wellness and vigor. By taking a little extra time and implementing some precautions, you can remain healthy, be relatively medication-free, continue being independent, and live a stress-free life. And, isn’t that what longevity should be about?
Our Motto: Living a long life without getting old has everything to do with an anti-aging process which makes you:
- Understand- that if you continue to enjoy your current, less than healthy lifestyle, you are destined for medical problems, pain and suffering, and most likely an early death
- Recognize- that medical science has made tremendous progress toward extending human life but at a cost in terms of time seeking professional medical assistance, money spent for doctors, treatments and medications, and unnecessary pain and suffering.
- Believe- that by helping yourself to change your mode of living somewhat, you can enjoy life to its fullest with a minimum of discomfort and annoyance.
- Approach- that by taking steps to enhance longevity without the problems typically associated with aging, you can prevent them and enjoy life to the fullest unto you final day.
GoldenGeezers.com is an association of men who are willing to make some changes in their way of life to enjoy a more beneficial lifestyle to overcome the many of the problems associated with the aging process. The three primary areas of concentration are Diet and Nutrition, Fitness and Exercise, and Stress Management. Other topics of interest, worthwhile activities, and uplifting or self-help information for elder men will be included. We plan to provide new, interesting, and beneficial knowledge on Monday and Thursday of each week. You will not be overwhelmed with e-mails that clutter your mail box and our hope is that you will look forward to tuning in to each new posting.
We welcome you to participate in the vast growing population of aging men who are taking responsibility for their own health and well-being. Enjoying your “Golden Years” as you age will make YOU a Golden Geezer.
Smart Planning is the Best Remedy
We typically spend more time planning our vacations than we do our retirements and our wellness. It is only when our health fails and some serious medical problem arises that our thoughts finally get to thinking about what needs to be done. Why do we all generally wait until some misfortune befalls us before we begin taking positive steps as a reaction rather than proactively practicing a program of prevention?
It is essential and practical to recognize the positive effects of a healthy life as well as the effects of an unhealthy life. The approach taken for a healthy lifestyle must be simple to understand and to apply. You must sincerely believe that you can age well and that you are never too old to begin. By taking the initial steps you can observe almost immediate results.
The need to fuel the body by eating properly is very important. You cannot perform your best nor out train a poor diet. Start eating more whole foods and less of the processed foods that have become so much of your under-nourishment. Your muscles and bones will get more of the nutrients they need to keep you going longer with greater ease. As you age, this should become a paramount consideration. Reviewing your diet will also help and tips for proper nutrition are readily available. The use of common herbs found in the kitchen and non-processed foods rich in vitamins and minerals will combine with exercise to alleviate weight and nutrition problems. Of course, this requires the formation of new habits.
Learn to move more often and with better motion. The way you move directly effects the way you feel. When you feel better, you will move more and feel even better and your movement will be without pain. By moving more, you will break a very vicious cycle that is a downward spiral regarding your life and longevity. What you do for movement in your 50’s will carry you through your 60’s. What you do in your 60’s will carry you through your 70’s and so on. By moving more you will enhance your mental and sexual well-being, too. Movement is vital to vitality.
With the pressures and endless demands of work, family, and life in general, millions of people feel overwhelmed and drained. The stress, combined with a lack of energy, results in an inability to truly enjoy life. Modern life is a witch’s brew of technological advancement and ever more mechanization keeping us under pressure. With the pressures and demands upon our time, we all seem to make trade-offs which affect our basic health and mental well-being. This scenario repeated daily is a fast track that will spiral your health downward and set you up for aging prematurely and the onset of chronic disease such as heart disease, diabetes, or cancer.
Golden Geezers enjoy a simple plan that is easy to understand and easy to apply to become a more vigorous aging male. We practice a well thought out plan to live life to its fullest. We build strength, build confidence, and build longevity. We spend the rest of our days doing what we want, when we want to do it- in good health. We plan to become healthy, disease-free centurions.
