Have you ever considered using Eastern practices as part of your health and fitness routine? I never have which made Do It or Age Quickly: 60- Second Practices to Live Better, Stronger, and Longer even more interesting to read. The basis of this book is to provide a 21-step approach (that takes 60 seconds each) to help improve your health, well-being, and slow the aging process.
About the Author
This book was written by J.B. Berns, a personal trainer and creator of the Urban Rebounding workout. He also has twenty years of martial arts, yogic, and Taoist training. He was also named as one of the top 10 personal trainers in the nation by Fitness Magazine in 1999.
Plenty of Information that Covers the Body from Head to Toe
What I enjoyed most about this book is learning alternative methods for overall well-being. I’m used to reading about general health and fitness topics so it was enlightening to read about alternative methods for taking care of ourselves, inside and out. There are internal exercises for the neck and thyroid, lungs, heart, stomach, liver, and more.
He also covers exercises for increasing energy as well as essential stretches that can help with muscle tension, flexibility, and stress. There are diagrams for each exercise and the author goes into detail of what each movement is for and how it benefits you.
I also liked reading about different supplements and their benefits as well as herbal formulas which the author claims are “a fountain of youth” and will help to slow the aging process.
Not for Everyone
This book may not be for everyone, particularly if you’re not a big believer in alternative health. While the 21-steps are easy enough, and only take 60 seconds each, it may still be difficult for the average person to incorporate into their daily lives. However, you may still find several exercises that you may want to do regularly to help improve a specific health issue.
If you’re interested in learning anti-aging techniques that are easy to do and include natural health supplements, then you will definitely learn a lot here. Overall, Do It or Age Quickly was interesting and fun to read and something I know I will refer back to often.
