Growing Older Doesn’t Have to Hurt
If you took a survey asking people what is their greatest fear about aging what would be their response? Most people seem to fear losing their abilities to enjoy life, to remain attractive, active and vibrant, attractive to the opposite sex, etc.
Does it have to be that way?
Part of the challenge in growing older is staying in good health. While some people appear to be in good health effortlessly, perhaps the gene pool gave them a stronger physique and they don’t really have to work hard at it.
Most of us have to put forth effort to maintain good health and appearance.
Attitude plays a huge part in just about every aspect of our lives. If we wake up in the morning dreading the day ahead and anticipate that the day will be filled with troubles we’re sure to find that to be true. Sure, we won’t avoid trouble strictly by positive thinking but we will handle our troubles better with a positive outlook and attitude and that is a key to success.
Remaining active is another element that can’t be ignored. The more complacent we become the more comfortable we become with complacency. To remain active we must nourish and tend to our relationships and continue to educate ourselves. Being with people who are energetic encourages us to be energetic.
Eating well, paying attention to our mental and physical well-being is essential.
All of these elements work together and sound simple but the truth is it does take effort.
Put for the effort, the payoff is well worth it. Take the steps today to begin a newer you. Yoga is one way to work for physical, mental and emotional wellbeing.
