“It’s not the years in your life, it’s the life in your years!”
That’s the premise that “Older & Active” is all about. Longevity is fine, but if you spend most of your later years in a hospital bed or nursing home, then what good does it do?
There’s a quote I like that pretty much sums up my attitude:
“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, ‘WOW! What a ride!'”
To achieve that, requires what I call an E3 approach. Each day should be filled with Energy, Enthusiasm, and Empathy.
A healthy body, exercised and well nurished, will give you Energy.
A healthy attitude, stoked by surrounding yourself with positive people, will give you Enthusiasm.
And a solid base of spirituality will provide you with the Empathy you need to be a complete person.
On both the Blog and Radio Show, I’ll try to cover a mix of all three ‘E’s‘ and hope you’ll join me!
