I appreciate every marketer’s right to attract customers, but there must be REAL anti-aging strategies we can find/use. Cortez never found his fountain of youth – not because he lacked GPS. He wasn’t looking in the right place.
Staying young isn’t spa/vacation destination or religious quest, it’s a state of mind. My mind. Yours too. Science is developing ways to self-repair our bodies, but what about our attitudes?
I saw a ‘LINK’ titled anti-aging – clicked, expecting information on physical and mental health/wellness, living longer/better; instead, advertising products, remedies to keep my skin looking young!
Amid hype, so many anti-dementia medications or experimental therapy, isn’t something missing – that of our attitude?
Let’s sell those on line – ship them UPS!
Something that penetrates all elements of our lives – lets reverse attitudinal aging. I don’t mean ‘think and act like we are teenagers’, but ‘adopt an attitude of not getting old in our thinking’.
You might inquire what race or event I’m training for.
I’m training for a different kind of contest – one we win or lose in our 80’s, 90’s and beyond.
I am convinced that length and quality of my life is entirely in my own hands.
DNA has some influence – family history, environment, bad choices earlier in life – all contribute to the long vs. short argument. They don’t contribute to the deliberate elements however.
By deliberate I mean: what goes in my mouth, what my body does every day, how I think, how I feel, what my intentions are. None of those is predetermined. It’s up to me.
