Well, that and doctor’s orders!!
A few years ago, Paul Walker’s doctor told him to slooowww dowwwn! The actor was running on empty and his body was starting to suffer for it.
“I’m still learning how to relax. And a while ago I started to feel
run down. My doctor pointed out I was running on empty. He said that when
you’re young it’s not really an issue, but one of these days you’re going to
get older, and you’ll crash.
He said, ‘You’re going to have to learn to take
strolls on the beach to relax.’ I didn’t think I was capable.”
Isn’t that crazy that we have gotten to a point in society where we have to LEARN to relax?
However, the 35-year-old star – who has a 10-year-old daughter Meadow – says
fatherhood has helped him to calm down.
Paul added to Men’s Health magazine:
“Sure enough, I’m starting to mellow
with age. As I’ve gotten older I’ve noticed I can carry a bit more weight –
I would have felt really sluggish running around at 190lb when I was
“Things don’t faze me as much as they used to. Fatherhood has made me grow
up a lot.”
Parenthood can do that to a person. 🙂
In other news, I saw Fast and Furious and really liked it! Has anyone else gone to see this movie yet?
