Aging isn't for sissies!
Aging is hard work, physically we change, such as our eyesight, hearing, or cognition. But, our Golden Years can be wonderful, especially if you have the right attitude.
Check yourself: do you tend to be pessimistic, see the glass as half-empty, or think the worst of people and situations? Are you too self-critical? If you aren't normally optimistic and want to be, change will happen, it takes time to keep the negative talk at bay and replace it with positivity.
--Surround yourself with positive people. Watching how others approach life with an upbeat and productive attitude will help.
--Be open to humor. Laugh, smile, and feel the joy that comes with giggling. It's been said that "laughing is the best medicine," and it's true!
--Turn "I can't" into "I can try." Because aging is presenting new limitations on life, it's easy to give a big sigh and be resigned to our restrictions. Instead, think of ways around your limitations-where there is a will, there is a way.
Come join our Mad Hatter Tea Party from 3-4 p.m., Thursday, May 24th. Enjoy our Mad Hatter as he juggles and quotes lines from "Alice in Wonderland."And we will serve topsy-turvy food and regular tea (tea that helps you stay the same size) as well as long Island Iced Tea (tea that makes you taller).
Your positive attitude can have an effect on your well-being. New friendships, less stress, improved health, and you'll have more fun. Give it a try! At Country Meadows Village, we want you HAPPY! Together, let's laugh and smile while making your Golden Years shine with positivity.
