Anti-Aging Choices

Here they come.....the marketers are gearing up to cash in on the baby boomers who are prime to want all things that will come under the heading of "anti-aging".  Even young girls old enough to want to look like their favorite entertainer will be interested in a way to not age.  The five most popular ways to age gracefully seem to be:

1.  Eating healthy
2.  Take vitamins
3.  Use Creams, lotions, and serums
4.  Go to an Anti-aging Spa
5.  Exercise

I know we have our fashionista's on Advanced Style hosted by Ari Seth Cohen that are visions of inspiration. I would like to see more images of advanced athletes that are great role models as well.  Also I agree with a statement I read that seemed true to me.  "There is no such thing as "anti-aging"  that marketers would like us to believe........there is only alternative ways to grow older and we can educate our self as to how we choose to do it. 

I'm thinking about starting an exercise studio of some kind.  How important do you think exercise is for over-all health?  Is it a priority or no?  If yes what form of exercise is your choice and what do you like about it?  Would you like to do more or less?  Thank you for your input.
