HOW TO STAY YOUNG

Forwarded by FlyBurd. Original author not given.

Sometimes life seems complicated. Maybe these simply recommendations will help:

  • Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.
  • Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down. Keep this In mind if you are one of those grouches.
  • 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!
  • Enjoy the simple things.
  • 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 or her.
  • Tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person who is with you your entire life, is yourself. Live while you are alive.
  • Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.
    Your home is your refuge.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.

And if you don't send this to at least four people - who cares? But do share it with someone.
