Today's seniors are nothing like the blue-haired, subdued, dowdy-dressing counterparts of previous generations. As the Woodstock hippies reach their 60s, they are still dancing to the tune of new attitudes and meaningful life pursuits. Here's five ways to keep that young-at-heart spirit playing on your MP3.
What you give truly comes back 10-fold. There are children longing for someone to read them a book, homeless folks hungry for a helping of kindness with their soup, homebound people waiting for a ray of humanity to brighten their day and friendly dogs needing a walk while they hope for a forever family.
Get on the go. Swimming is one of the best ways to keep in shape well into your 90s. Start you day off with a walk or hike. Take a dance class and get out and Lindy, Salsa or Two-Step. Tai chi and yoga guide you in ancient movements to enrich your body and soul.
Take a trip. Learn a new language. Start a new business. Go live in the place of your dreams. Find your spiritual nature. Go boldly into new worlds.
Celebrate and embrace each birthday! Invite friends of all ages. Dance and play loud music. Eat cake and steak and have that rowdy shot of tequila or expensive glass of wine. You're worth it!
