For those of you who relish a long life I have included a link with 50 tips for daily living
I thought it may be interesting to rate a top 5. So here’s my top 5 in no particular order.
I try not to hold grudges against anyone ever. It means you have to forgive someone, agree to disagree, and seek to understand why bizarre behaviour occurs. Free from grudges a mind can relax and when in such a state helps bolster your immune system. It also makes life more pleasant and uncomplicated.
Food for thought
What we eat affects our thinking and my favourite’s salmon and unsalted nuts.
Both are good food for the brain and improve you immune system. Salmon also enhance the body’s ability to withstand skin cancers.
The mind needs rigouress workouts.
I am not talking about work, as most aspects become routine even in the most senior positions.
Deep conceptual thinking, crosswords, bridge or any activity that tests your mental ability gives it a good workout. Try thinking about topics outside your expertise, and embrace your confusion, as it’s usually the first stages of new undersrtandings. Try moving out of your comfortable thinking zone.
Not only will you feel better, you might even become more intelligent as you grow older, in direct contradiction to what was thought not many years ago.
Brain neurons can continue to develope in adult brains although this is not as yet fully understood.
Research indicates prolonged isolation is not good for you. In any community, even so called closed communities its important to socialise and interact regularly.
I celebrated my birthday and caught up with many old friends. Hugs all-around, makes one feel good for weeks afterwards and engenders a special feeling of connectiveness.
Keeping in contact and meeting with friends and family on a regular basis bolsters you immune system.
Prepare for disappointments
Our success in life depends on how well we handle our disappointments and you are bound to have plenty. How you adapt and make the most of it is a measure of your success. Funny how we don’t talk about that very much; yet I think we all know life was not meant to be easy.
