How to Stay Young
June 19, 2017 by Living Assistance Services
The “fountain of youth” is more and more in demand as baby boomers come of age. Aging is an inevitable part of life, but poor health is not an inevitable consequence of aging. Good genes help, but research indicates that it is more about how we live that makes the difference. Studies have shown that those with an optimistic outlook on life actually live longer, healthier lives. So are you ready for a long life?
What can you do to stay young?
Attitude is extremely important. When we act old, we become old. We here at Living Assistance Services, truly believe laughter is the best medicine. We make a point of telling a joke at the beginning of each of our staff meetings. Laughing together means communicating together – it’s a medium we can all relate to. A sense of humour doesn’t have to fade with age. As Mark Twain once wrote, “Wrinkles should merely indicate where smiles have been.”
So get busy laughing; laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
