Life is short and each day we grow a day older. But there are many things we can do to live a long happy life, entering old age full of youthful energy and vitality. A long happy life is a combination of healthy mind and body.
Stress will shorten your life and make you look older. Stress can come in many forms, such as holding onto the past with regret, anger, blame, holding a grudge, all these will create stress and unhappiness. Also worrying about the future, always wanting, needing, over thinking, quick to anger, all produce stress and over time will rob you of your youth. It is important to learn to let go quickly and try to avoid stress plus life is better when we are happy..
Worry is like a mobile phone; you don’t like it ringing constantly, but you don’t want to switch it off. Discipline your mind; switch off the constant ringing of problems and spend a few minutes thinking about things that make you smile.
Physical Activity is important for health and many studies have shown that being inactive shortens your life. Even just going for a good walk each day will give you more energy, reduce stress, make you feel happier, improve your health and also help you to reduce weight.
Spend some time in the sun each day for vitamin D that is really a hormone, and an important factor in health.
Plus a peaceful good night’s sleep each night….
Life is about balance, so balance your time between work and family…
Yes, you can reach old age and still be youthful, so always be thankful, loving and compassionate, smile, laugh, enjoy life and everything that life has to offer. Each day is a gift from God; If some days it seems like you got an empty box, God may be giving you your choice as to how you will fill it.
Enjoy Life …as it is….
