Older men and vets must remain active after retirement

Not too recently I was on Facebook checking out my timeline and I saw the shocking news that a old friend to was a veteran had passed away. The cause was a health cause. He had undergone surgery and did not make it. The reason he required surgery was because he had some artery blockage that needed treatment immediately. There was many times where he said that when he was younger he did not do much to take care of his health. Both his eating and exercise habits were horrible. After he retired things were just much much worse. It is super easy to fall into a rut and just go out and buy fast food. But you have to resist this urge. You have to try and eat as healthy as possible. You also have to walk every single day. Other thing to do is lower your sodium intake. This is by far one of the worst things you can have too much of in your system.

If you are someone who is reading this that knows someone who might fall for this type of lifestyle please know that its never too late. Some people may not be willing to listen. But that is okay. Do your best to make sure they do what is best for their health. We all love our loved ones and don’t want to lose them. Take a moment today and talk to them about their health. Let them know that it would cause you great greif if they were to pass away due to something they could have prevented. Again, its never too late.
