Good Life Riff: Ah, hindsight! As they say, it really is 20-2o. When we look back at some decisions, we think, “wow, that was such a great call, I’m pretty smart.” But, then there are those other decisions.

Turns out, especially for those a bit later in life, moving your body in a very specific way just might them back on, grow a bunch of new ones and light up your genes in a good way. And, as always, for those want to go to the source, here’s a link to the full study.
