There is no sense in worrying about your age or other numbers that seem to define you. You pay doctors good money to worry about things like your age, height and weight. If you worry that you are 84 years old, weigh 10 more pounds than you did last year, and that have lost an inch of height, you won’t have any time to keep yourself useful by doing fun activities.
A balanced, healthy diet is critical as you get older. Your diet should be low in cholesterol and saturated fats, and high in whole grains, fruits and vegetables. Following this eating plan will help you get abundant nutrients for optimal health.
Turn your house into a home by personalizing it. Even when we’re older, life circumstances can cause us to depart from the place we believed we were going to call home forever. If you have moved to a new place, decorate and surround yourself with things that feel comfortable.
If you have healthy friendships, you will be more energetic and happy. You will never be too old to find new friends. Meet new people by strike up conversations with strangers in the grocery line, on the bus or at an event. It will improve your life.
Look at life as a journey that should be enjoyed and explored. If you take the time to set milestones like you did for your kids as they were growing, you will find that when you reach those milestones you will feel the same pride as you did all of those years ago.
