How’s your mindset about the age you are right now? What about the future? Do you think about aging and all the bad press it’s received?
Would you agree that there is a lot of information out there about aging and the assumptions of normal aging, or should I say… what people think is normal?
It seems that most people feel that there are many factors beyond our control. I would agree that some factors are beyond our control, but there are so many more that are within our control.
O.K. Let’s face it… lines and wrinkles on our face are going to happen. That’s beyond our control to a certain extent. Certainly lots of products have been developed within the past few decades that help that, but no matter what miracle, anti-aging product you buy, it’s not going to produce a twenty-something year old-looking face. And probably not even a forty-someting face. Maybe just a better sixty-something face!
One thing I’ve learned that is within our control, is how we keep moving. You know, exercise. In high school, I remember disliking the very concept of exercise, but over the past number of years I’ve realized how important it is. And since being introduced to the Younger Next Year books, by Chris Crowley and Henry Lodge, MD. it’s enhanced my understanding of the real benefits of exercising. We can be younger next year on the inside with the amount of exercise and weight work they advocate.
How’s your mindset about all of this? Hopefully you have a positive mindset because it’s so very important. It’s probably one of the most important factors of aging. Aging successfully. And isn’t that what it’s all about?
