“No matter how old we get,we can be still young at heart. But with the benefit of a well-lived lifetime of knowledge and wisdom.” —Marianette Carbito quotes
If you have ever watched young children at play they seem to work hard at having fun. Their imaginations are in overdrive and their curiosity levels high enough to stress even the most patient adult.
These energy levels are committed 100 per cent and their minds are totally focused on the activity at hand. It is innocent fun that helps them cope with the joys, stresses , fears and hopes of childhood.
They seem to sleep sounder at night as a direct result of venting all this non sugar induced energy into a physical activity. They do not need sleeping pills or warm milk or a tranquilizer pill to help them sleep well.
As adults we can learn a lot from their actions. We need an outlet that will not only keep us sane and on track but also ensure that we maintain our inner and outer body health for years to come.
I am sure that you know or have met people who are younger than you are but yet look older and more weather worn. Genetics aside there is a good chance that these same folks have adopted the attitude that growing older takes a lot from a person.
That may well be true . But how much of yourself are you willing to offer to this popular concept promoted by people who have probably never had a pleasant experience in their entire lives?
I truly suggest that at this time of year you make a New Year resolution to commit a few moments each day to yourself centered around personal reflection and an activity that you find enjoyable. Let this activity help you to outwardly funnel your negative energy streams and convert them into positive outcomes.
This mental investment in yourself may surprise you at first and be a personal pain in the butt but over a short period of time you will feel younger at heart and more optimistic about your life. Try it! You have nothing to lose other than your stress.
