As we get older we tend to walk slower. Not because we want to be careful, but because we have to be careful. All the flexibilities, coordination and reflexes have gone down. It is a sure signs that our health is deteriorating. This is not surprising if we look carefully at the people around us. If we are discerning enough, we will notice that some of our friends whom we have spend some times walking together, those who were always get left behind were the one who developed various chronic illnesses and eventually died first.

So, does this means if we start to walk faster now, we will live longer? Logically we would think that if we are able to walk faster than average people on the street, we must be healthier than the average. Therefore, we could be living longer than average. The question is not whether we want to walk faster but whether we are able to walk faster.

Well, now that you know the secret, try not to get left behind next time you are going for a walk with your group of friends. If you have friends who are always left behind during your group walk, be nice to them for they may leave the earth sooner than you. Now let ponder this question, between you and your spouse who do you think lives longer?
