How to stay young in 2019

-

1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That’s what you pay them to do.

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches will pull you down.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, gardening, even ham radio. Never let the brain idle. An idle brain is the Devil’s workshop. And the Devil’s family name is Alzheimer’s.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for air.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be alive while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what makes 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 mail box, even to the next county or to a foreign country, but not to where the guilt is.

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