Much of our modern health care system is set up to help prolong your life and numb your symptoms.
If you had to choose one, would you choose to have more quality or quantity of life?
Over the past 50yrs we have seen life expectancy grow and now we are seeing more people reach 100yrs of age then ever before (quantity) but have these extended years been of quality though? In the USA, people over 60 take on average 9 medications and these medications are often trying to address issues created by earlier lifestyle choices.
It is not for me to tell you which one you should value more, quality or quantity but what if you valued quality higher, then pursued lifestyle choices that support your value and perhaps you might just end up getting both.
Take the time to add quality to your years and you may just end up adding quantity too.
