Some years ago, one of my grandsons, then age six, really took me aback. “Granny,” he asked innocently enough, “would you do me a favour?” I assumed he wanted a second dish of ice cream and said “of course.” As one does. “Granny,” he continued, “would you and Grandad try really, really hard to stay healthy, because I want my children to know their great-grandparents?” Well, that was surprise. I promised to try. What else could I say?
I eat well and healthily by anyone’s standards, but exercise is somewhat harder. We all know that it is important for our health, but how often do we do anything about it? It feels like so much trouble. Once now and again is fine, but doing it on a regular basis is something else altogether. There are so many excuses – a bad night’s sleep, someone coming for dinner, we just don’t have the energy today. And so forth. The older we get, the harder it is. Believe me, I know.
