James Gandolfini Too Young To Die

Written by Dee on 21/06/13, filed under General News | No Comments
James Gandolfini aka Tony Soprano, who played the main character in the Sopranos, was my hero and an idol for so many. He was such an intense actor in all the roles he played, he gave everything to his work. Even when he died in Italy on holiday he was working attending a film awards ceremony. James Gandolfini who died at 51 of a possible heart attack. All the cliches come out in such tragedies ‘he was too young to die’, ’such a loss to society’ and my personal bug bear ‘life’s too short’.

Even though I respected James Gandolfini as an actor I just wish he did more to look after himself. He was an actor who was completely dedicated to his work and from his stature it always seemed he maybe spent too little time to look after himself. Life sometimes can look too short but my favourite cliche is ‘life is what you make it’. I believe if more people spent more time thinking about looking after themselves in mind, body and soul maybe more people would be healthier and live longer. Being physically active is important and the Department of Health guidelines stipulate being active 3 times a week for 30 minutes. So a brisk walk for 30minutes would suffice. Healthier eating and five a day of fruit and vegetables are crucial. However, its not just the body but the mind thats important. Stress can also play a major part in bad health hence relaxation is as important. So relaxing on the beach, spa treatments such as aromatherapy or even just getting away from the rigours of life can only help to enhance life.

James Gandolfini is gone and our thoughts are with his family who have lost a father, a husband and a friend. I hope the legacy from his death is that his fans all over the world learn that work life balance is key to a healthier life.
