Aging well is something that can be hard to do. When it comes to physical activity, the world is your oyster when you’re in your twenties. Then you find that the older you get, your body takes longer to do what it used to do so quickly. And it takes longer to recover.
We just bought a new house (new to us anyway) and this weekend was the “Big Move”. Needless to say, I am very thankful for friends and family! We had some good help but we were all feeling it by the end of the day Saturday. As a result, I have noticed a couple of things about aging well that I’d like to quickly share with you.
Because of these recent events, it is in the forefront of my mind that I feel physical exertion more now that I’m older (a very young 46). Just as significant, I have found that it takes longer for my body to recover from it as well.
The most important observation I have made regarding this concept of aging well would be this: Aging well is totally a mind game. I truly mean what I said earlier. I am a young 46 years old. How many people consider themselves old at that age? More than you would think. How many limit themselves and what they can still do with their lives by what they tell themselves on a daily basis?
It’s a spiritual law that God addresses in the Bible. There are many scriptures about the power of our thoughts and the words we choose to say.
Think about it. And change what needs to change in your own life so that you can live as God would have you live. Healthy and vibrant and free!
Talk to you next time, my friend.
