The “wake-up call” I apparently missed
The “wake-up call” I apparently missed

When I turned 39 years of age, I never once freaked out about it being my last year before the big 4-0. And I didn’t freak out when I turned 40- or 50 for that matter. What I DID apparently miss was my “health wake-up call.”

According to a new study 39 is the average age we have a wake-up call because thats when we start to feel old, or maybe have a health scare or see a friend get sick and die from their particular type of lifestyle. So, as a result thats when we start to curb our bad habits and make some changes. Well… some of us.

The TOP LIFESTYLE changes after the “wake-up call” were as follows: eating more fruits and vegetables (I’ve always like those to begin with, so – check!). Exercising more (ANY exercise at this point would be more). Cutting down on fried food (does getting a BOX of fried chicken as opposed to a BUCKET count as cutting down?). Cutting back on alcohol (I cut it with water sometimes – no?). Taking vitamins (believe it or not I DO). Learning to relax (I’m a pro). Quitting smoking (I honestly wish I could, but I haven’t). And in some cases giving up alcohol ENTIRELY (now that’s just plain old crazy talk).

Look, I’m not stupid. I know that eventually its ALL going to catch up to me at some point. Machines break down, and humans bleed. On Monday, I’ll be halfway to my 55th birthday. “Double Nickels” feels like a good time to maybe give the list a shot. At least some of it. I mean ask anyone – going to extremes with anything is seldom a good idea. Everything in moderation. Unless someone’s got a 2 for 1 deal going on. Can’t let a “wake-up call” get in the way of a good value.
