Ever wondered about how you will look and feel when you’re 70 years old? I bet I has crossed your mind sometimes whether related to people living longer these days or your parents being close to the 70’s celebration!
I’m a very lucky person: my mother just turned 69 and she looks great, feels great and has a very healthy brain! She’s very active and still manages to devote herself to my father, 6 children and 15 grandchildren! It’s incredible!
How can we keep our energy, joy and health as we age?
If I had to reveal my mother’s secret:
1. Being Grateful
2. Taking Daily Action to deal with life’s challenges
3. Finding activities that you Enjoy (Exercise included!)
4. Connect regularly with friends and family
5. Make meals a social event
6. Have Faith and develop your spiritual gifts
7. WALK, PLAY, LAUGH, LEARN, LISTEN! And Eat Chocolate! :-)
