We all age. There is a natural order of the body mechanics that breaks down and creates the “aging process ” but it does not mean that we have to GET OLD and buy in to all the myths our society tells us about aging: Your over the hill after 40. Oh,I can’t ski anymore,I’m too old. I’m too old to go back to school, it’s too late for me to learn French. After 50 I just don’t have the energy. My metabolism is just not the same…..I can’t seem to get the extra pounds off
What else? What is your excuse,if you have one?
Why is it that some people defy the aging process and look great,feel good and are filled with vitally,and others are sluggish,slow,overweight,have no more zest for life and just quietly fall in to their OLD AGE WAY OF LIFE?
Why do some people morph in to a creature that is unrecogniable when they get older…..? I see them every day walking down the street: shoulders rounded forward creating the hump in the back,20 to 30 pounds over weight,short awkward strides in their gait due to lack of strength and flexibility in their muscles,belly fat hanging over their belt,difficult to breathe and on and on we go slowly fading in to black….
They do this because they think that they do not have a choice but THEY DO. How you think about aging is how you will age.
It is NOT necessary and definitely does not have to be the status quo.
Aging is a process,NOT a way of life!
I have a yoga teacher who is 86 years old. What has she got that others don’t? Nothing. We all are made up of the same matter and we can either turn our life and our will over to getting older or we reverse the aging process,slow it down with diet, exercise and how you THINK about aging.
Don’t focus on the number. Focus on your LIFE! . Enjoy a long healthy happy vital fun filled life way past 80.
I will be teaching yoga whan I am 100 years old. I will learn a new langiage. I will learn to play a musical instrument. I will always have a beginners mind and open myself to a brand new exciting world every day.
Get your yogini on!
