TIPS: How to Stay Young

Often, we get question like “How old are you already?!”.. Some people will just get irritated by the people who asked about the age.. Not trying to bias, but the majority would be the female.. As I always say, woman is usually more sensitive to number than man.. from money to weight and to age..

What do you see from this picture? Young or Old lady? Just a brain-teaser picture..

However, I do hear some positive remark from way people answer the question.. Instead of saying, “I’m 34 years old this year..”, he or she will say, “I’m still 34 years young and fit..”

Age is just a number.. Think it that way and I believe we could get young.. However, often as it may seem, we usually treat our age as something that may be a hindrance to us.. Well, of course, problem occurs only when we reach 30 and above..

Usually, when we are young, especially when we were a kid or a teen, we keep wishing that we will reach the age of 18 or 21 as soon as possible and wishing time would pass faster.. It some how became a disastrous matter when reaching 30-an..


If we are able to cope with our age and let the age be just number.. Perhaps we can still look young and fit when reaching a really “mature” level.. Look at Pierce Brosnan (our former famous “James Bond”), regardless how old, he is always looking young and fit.. Agree? No?!

Well, now get into the main point.. I receive this tips or theory of staying young.. And I found it quite logical and helpful, and wanted to share this to all of you..


1. Throw out nonessential numbers.
This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay "them."

2. Keep only cheerful friends.
The grouches pull you down.

3. Keep learning.
Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. "An idle mind is the devil's workshop."
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.

4. Enjoy the simple things.

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

6. The tears happen..
Endure, grieve, and move on.
The only person, who is with us our entire life, is ourselves.
Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

8. Cherish your health:
If it is good, preserve it.
If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

9. Don't take guilt trips.
Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them , at every opportunity.
