A happy hundred?
Another book about centenarians is soon to come out by a Dr. John Day. He is studying the Japanese ‘Longevity Village’. He’s a doctor who is astounded that “a painful decline is not inevitable…” Death is, of course, but not a diseased decline of heart disease, cancer and dementia.
The secret is not happy pills. Certainly, it’s exercise and eating good food, but the secrets are basic gratitude practices.
Ready for the wisdom?
1. Smile more – (It gives your wrinkles something to do)
2. Rethink Stress (Can you endure the ease?)
3. Play (Play Daily – (BTW this is one of my rules – check out the new book website please)
4. Look forward to aging (Repeat after me, I love my life right now...)
From the centenarians that I have been blessed to have known—Alpha, Suzie, Madeline, Albertina— they were also shameless flirts…
Get to know one.
Their generosity, and willingness to help will astound you.They did me. It’s how they got to be a happy hundred.
BTW- I think it's about being happy at whatever age you are. Yes?
