We’re shifting gears in a society where once upon a time, health was inevitably intrinsically knitted into our daily routines. We didn’t use vehicles as much and got our dose of physical exercise, the advent of technology hadn’t set in yet to cause us the angst and tension it does today, and we’re losing control of face-to-face communication, impairing our ability to socialize in the healthy conventional manner.
How does this all have to connect to aging? Maybe not directly, but in the long-run our actions of the present will catch up to us in the future as something we look back on and wish we had “kept a tab on”.
