Spring is in the air. Laugh, love, and stay young! This is our office theme for 2017. Wouldn’t it be great if we laughed everyday, loved everyday, and never grew old? A challenge for sure, but nothing worthwhile comes without effort.
We all must work at staying young. We have an 85 year old patient who still goes to work one day a week, runs one mile a day seven days a week, and plays golf at least three times a week. His attitude is never, ever give up.
If everyone paid attention to reducing their processed food intake, believed that exercising everyday adds another healthy day to your life, kept a positive attitude no matter what, you will add life to your years and years to your life. It takes moderate discipline, NOT OCD, a happy approach to change, and like our 85 year old patient an attitude of I can do it!
Just a few reminders of living a healthy life. It is our lifestyle and we will never stop encouraging you.
It’s almost spring… start today!
In great health,

HOW TO STAY YOUNG
- Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.
- Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
- Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever, even ham radio. Never let the brain idle. “An idle mind is the devil’s workshop.” And the devil’s family name is Alzheimer’s.
- Enjoy the simple things.
- Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
- 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.
- Surround yourself with what you love, whether it’s family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.
- 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.
- 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.
- Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity. AND, ALWAYS REMEMBER: Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.
Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally used up and worn out, shouting “…man, what a ride!”
