What is something that goes up but never comes down? Your age!
Aging is something that humans would love to conquer. Everyone seems to be obsessed in staying young. Of course, nobody wants to be the senile old man who depends for other person for everything. Nobody would want their bones to become denser, their skin loose and wrinkled, their knees buckling every time they stand up, their sights becoming blurred or worse becoming blind. Nobody would want to have those persistent backaches or have a losing combat with Alzheimer’s disease. Aging does not mean that you have to be frail, weak, bitter and depressed.
While some of the many evils of aging requires doctors’ attention. Relaxing and maintaining a positive outlook in life is effective in combating aging. Stress will help you age. Unhealthy habits and laziness will help you age. Vices will not do any good for you.
Here are some tips to help you win the war on aging and getting there gracefully.
1. There is a big difference between growing old and growing up. Anybody can grow older even if he is doing nothing. The best idea is to grow up and find the opportunity to change for the better.
2. You have to have a goal or a dream. So many people are like walking zombies. They do not know where to go.
3. Have no regrets.
4. Laugh and find humor everyday. An aging person with a young, positive attitude will never feel old. “To keep the heart unwrinkled, to be hopeful, kindly, cheerful, reverent that is to triumph over old age. “- Amos Bronson Alcott
5. Be adaptive and learn to accept change. Willingness to grow personally is a hallmark of one with a young outlook.
6. Remember that you are as young as you feel. “When it comes to staying young, a mind-lift beats a face-lift any day.”-Marty Bucella
7. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be alive while you are alive, do not put out a mailbox on the highway of death and just wait in residence for your mail.
8. Enjoy the simple things. When the children are young, that is all that you can afford. When they are in college, that is all that you can afford. When you are on retirement, >that is all that you can afford!
9. Surround yourself with what you love. Make your home your refuge.
