Who cares how a sister got there when she’s walking across the dance floor tight and right!
I’m all for doing what you must to ignore Father Time. My weekly Pilates class is full of middle aged women and now men (ugh, can’t we have anything), all working hard to defy gravity, maintain core strength and balance. Sometimes it looks like the fountain of youth is in there and everyone is fighting to get a sip. From my playbook on page 1, first paragraph, it will tell you that regular exercise, eating right, drinking plenty of water, cutting out stress and getting plenty of rest are the pillars to maintaining and preserving youth. A drink of wine or a martini is not going to hurt, in fact it may help the stress level and the enjoyment of life. Don’t get me wrong I saw Benjamin Button, (twice) and I have no desire to have one lock of hair on my bald head with a little bow hanging from it. But if you visit any nursing home you will see rapidly declining people that didn’t have the information that we do to prevent premature aging and implement small things that make a huge difference later.
Since you have to age why not do it with a smile and a designer bag
In a time where there is so much information to orchestrate our body and minds into staying youthful, who wouldn’t pay attention? There are studies that show a positive attitude and practices like yoga and meditation are beyond beneficial. Laughing and keeping a positive mind also ranks high on the list of staying young at heart and spirit. We have heard and admit that exercise of the body and mind make complete sense and even recognize that there are specific foods to eat while others to avoid. Some of us will make commitments and stick to them while others won’t even try. The time will eventually come for all of us to take our seat and finally put our feet up. When that time comes for me I want to say that I did everything to take advantage of living long, honoring my body and loving life.
