In the beginning, I called this column “The Senior Life.” I had a vision for it, based on information I’d been gathering for years, in print and through life experience. But I see now that what I really want to show is how to age gracefully, as a friend put it. So now this column will be titled “Aging Gracefully,” an aspiration for us all.

Part of aging gracefully is physical fitness. I hear you groaning out there, but you know it’s true. Headlines tout the benefits of walking for just 30 minutes a day to improve health and longevity, reduce the risk of coronary disease, lower blood sugar, increase bone density and reduce cholesterol. That’s not even touching on the mental benefits, like lowering the risk of depression.
