"Good FITNESS - both mental and physical - can create what amounts to an unfair advantage. Living longer and stronger gives you the chance to do more and makes the whole process more fun. With a strong body and mind, you have the energy and clarity to do what you need to keep moving forward. Grandma was right - to go far, you have to eat your veggies, get off the couch and go outside, and not worry so much about the small stuff."
I believe this completely. I also agree there is an important balance between mental and physical fitness. That is one reason I am a huge support of community involvement, sharing your mental skills through volunteering. Volunteering can also give someone a sense of purpose that they may not have any other way.
I think the more active someone is then healthy they are. Maintaining a healthy body through good eating habits and fitness helps your body heal itself faster and prevent health issues.
