I recently started a project that I have been thinking about for a while.
Laid back attitude? Yes, add 5 years to your age (86,89); No, take away 5 years. Ok, I’m 91 now.
Do you have a family member that lived to at least 95?
If yes, add 10 years. If no, subtract nothing. I’m still sitting here with a score of 91.
Do you exercise 5 days a week for at least 30 minutes?
If yes, add 5 years. No, subtract 5 years. Now I’m up to 96!
Do you regularly challenge your brain
with interesting or challenging tasks? Yes, add 5 years & No, do nothing. I’m up to 101 years, wow!
Do you maintain a healthy diet?
If No, subtract 5 years & Yes, do nothing. Thanks to my wife, I do not have to subtract anything.
Do you smoke?
If Yes, take off 15 years & if No, subtract nothing. Since I smoke a cigar every other day, I had to take away 15 years and so, here I sit sadly, at where I started (age 86).
The picture is clear and simple for me:
Some of the hardest things in life involve doing what is, simply, the right thing to do.
I hope that wherever you are on this beautiful planet your day is going well.
