Ten tips to stay young forever

Filed under: Self Improvement,Tips and Tricks — hindumommy @ 11:07 pm

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height.Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.

2. Keep only cheerful friends.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain get idle. “An idle mind is the devil’s workshop……And the devil’s name is Alzheimer’s!”

4. Enjoy the simple things.
 
5. Laugh often, long and loud.  Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and  lots of time with HIM/HER.

6. The tears happen.
Endure, grieve, and move on.
The only person who is with you your entire life, is yourself.  LIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health. If it is good, preserve it.
 If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county, to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

  1. This is a wonderful and insightful list. Thanks for publishing it. Without doubt laughing, loving and living with enthusiasm is exactly what keeps us in our prime functioning state. May we both remain forever young! My username is linked to my environmental blog. My personal blog is here http://manypathways.wordpress.com and you’re welcome to stop by any time. 🙂

  2. 1. Numbers matter not, I have lived forever and will live forever.

    2. I always dissed neggies.

    3. People wonder why I’m like a walking encyclopedia…because I’m always reading!!!

    4. My life lacks the complexity most have because I was raised so.

    5. I live with that kind of person.

    6. I hug those who are tearing.

    7. I know Krishna is everywhere, and as a reminder I always say the Hare Krishna and the Tibetan Om chant at least once a day.

    8. My health is now enhanced by my new diet, the fact I bike everywhere, and freedom from most stresses I used to bear.

    9. Perhaps the most important reason why I left…to many reminders of a guilty and painful past.

    10. All the time I tell my sister and parents…
