A stitch in time

I’m a 40-year-old guy who let go of fitness about 10 years ago. I’m now balding and middle-aged, but without major health issues yet. Give me a five-point plan to get back into shape please.

Fitness in a five-point plan (you have your own business, don’t you?).

1 Start moving. Make sure you get 12,000 to 15,000 steps a day;
2
Be mindful of what you eat. Start by avoiding refined sugar and processed food;
3
Play a sport you love once or twice a week (it’s good being a child again – try it);
4
Exercise at least three-four times a week (slow and steady always); and
5
Your mind plays a very important role in your fitness, so remember this is a marathon and not a sprint.
