If you want your body to be healthy you have to use it all the time. I am not saying it needs to be high intensity, usually 2-3 hard training sessions a week is plenty but everyday you need to do either mobility training, breathing exercises, or cardio. Developing this simple daily habit will allow you to defy much of the age related deficits to the musculoskeletal system. None of this needs to be complicated but start dedicating 10-15 minutes everyday to keeping your body healthy and you will be absolutely amazed at the difference you will see.
