Outside Magazine recently sat down with Dr. Gladys McGarey to discuss her new book The Well-Lived Life. Her secrets have been revealed and we are very excited to share the recent article they published in their online magazine. Gladys McGarey, MD, explains what we should all be doing to seek out happy, healthy, and fulfilling lives with their audience of outdoor-types; people interested in adventure, sports, gear and fitness.
Emily Blackwood begins, “Our bodies may be speaking to us, but rarely do we actually listen. Until we’ve pulled a muscle or broken a bone, most of us mute that line of communication between our minds and our framework. But according to Gladys McGarey, MD, learning the language of our limbs gives us more power over our health, longevity, and quality of life than we realize. She should know. She’s 102.”
Dr. Gladys emphasizes the importance of daily movement (She walks 3,800 steps per day), stretching and using it to get unstuck. Your body has a lot to say so listening to it through movement is Dr. Gladys’ top tip. All life moves through you is her philosophy and she truly lives that every single day. She says, ““Life isn’t done just because I’m 102,” she says. “There’s also 103, 104, and wherever else I’m intended to go.””
