If there’s an upside to these terrible quarantines, it’s that some of the worst chores that we dread doing have been on hold.
DMV? Not today! Dental cleaning? See you in autumn!
And forget about airports and their endless security lines and uncomfortable groping at the end. Because we’re sure as heck not flying right now.
But there’s one place that’s a whole lot tougher to avoid. Because when you’re very sick… injured… or suffering from something severe like a heart attack… you need to get yourself to the hospital ASAP.
No one WANTS to be there, of course. Heck, we’d probably rather visit the DMV, the dentist, AND airport security on the same day than end up in the hospital.
So today, let me give you one little tip on how to do just that. This trick could help you avoid that trip as new research reveals a simple and effective way to keep your freedom by keeping you out of the hospital.
Make THIS move to avoid the hospital
When you reach your Golden Years, your odds of ending up in the hospital skyrocket. In fact, even before the pandemic seniors accounted for one in three hospitalizations.
But now, walking through those doors could expose you to a deadly new pathogen from which we have no natural immunity. And that makes it more critical than ever to avoid ending up there if you can.
That’s what makes this new study so vital. It reveals how you can stack the odds in your favor, so you don’t end up in a hospital.
And you’re going to laugh because the trick to sending your risk plunging couldn’t be simpler. The only thing you have to do is MOVE a little more.
In other words, keep walking, and you’re far more likely to keep out.
Send your hospitalization risk plummeting
That’s all it takes, really. A nice, regular, brisk walk as the new study finds even moderate levels of activity can reduce the number of days you’ll spend in hospitals over the years.
Over 10 years, just about any form of physical activity at all, will cut your risk of more frequent visits to… and longer stays in… the hospital by about 25 percent.
You’ll be less likely to have more than seven admissions over that decade. And less likely to spend more than 20 days in the hospital over that same period.
If you remain active or increase your activity, your odds of a more extended hospital stay will drop by over a third.
Don’t worry. You don’t have to be a super athlete to get these benefits, either. You don’t even have to be a lousy athlete to get them. Because you don’t need to be an athlete at all.
Just a little moderate activity is all it takes like that brisk walk I mentioned. Or anything else that keeps you moving like gardening, chair yoga, or even dancing your way through TV commercials.
Along with keeping you out of the hospital, that same basic level of movement can protect against chronic disease and early death. Talk about getting a triple bang for your buck.
