The Fountain of Youth That’s Outside Our Door, with Martin Pazzani
Longevity, according to Martin Pazzani, has been increased by pharmaceuticals and surgery, not by the quality of life and mind. The alternative to increasing your life span is using fitness as preventative medicine —fitness can prolong the cognitive and physical decline of your body. He proposes that the simple activity of getting outside and walking can have an immense effect on mood and physiology. In this episode, Pazzani explains how the fitness industry has failed us, offers a better alternative, and explains the powerful impact of JOBO – the Joy of Being Outside.
