If ‘aging well’ was easy, everyone would be doing it.
Something to Consider: You are one of a kind. Does this impact the way in which you live?
Imagine that you were the owner of the priceless ‘MONA LISA’, painted by the one and only Leonardo da Vinci.
How would you care for it? Would you treasure it? Would you watch over it closely? I’m sure your answer is yes…but why? I would guess your reason is likely related to its value, since it’s priceless.
And why is the ‘MONA LISA’ priceless? Because it’s one of a kind. This is what makes it so valuable and the reason so much effort goes into its care and protection.
With that being said…you are also one of a kind. No one else in the world has your DNA coding, which contains millions of digits and data. No one shares your fingerprint, your personality, your looks, etc. You are one of a kind and also priceless. So, there’s the argument for taking the very best care of yourself. You are irreplaceable.
Can we agree that you’re worth it?
They say that ‘TIME’ is one thing you can’t buy… HOWEVER, if you consistently make choices that are good for your brain & body, you will be doing your part to extend your life, which is the best way to buy yourself more time, and the best thing you can do for those you love.
Challenging your brain with math, logic, creative thinking, vocab exercises, and more is only a small part of ‘AGING WELL. Eating brain healthy food, staying active (exercising), relaxing, (prayer/meditation), having great relationships (social connections), and maintaining healthy sleep patterns are also necessary.
Commit to making any changes you need to make today to take care of yourself…because you are the only one of YOU…and irreplaceable.
