How To Be Healthy And Live Better
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you concerned about growing old? Well you shouldn't be. Let your goal be about how to be healthy and live a longer and a better life. I have been having trouble with this issue and realized growing older is better than the alternative so now I am trying to gracefully age and choose to look ahead in life life and see it has a lot of things to offer no matter how old I am.

Have you ever seen a 40-year-old that acted 80? Or how about an 80-year-old that acted 40? Why is that? Did they find the fountain of youth? I don't believe so. Most of the time it is about making wise choices in your younger years that you can benefit from in your older years. The choices we make have effects that are long lasting.

Can we live longer, and live better too? We do need to eat right and exercise, that is always good advice and something we all should do. But I believe there is something more important than this and that has a lot to do with the way you think. The mind is very powerful and it is much better for your health if you have a positive attitude. This is not always easy to do but I have found that when I do make the effort to change my thinking from negative to positive I always have a much better outcome.

I like the saying, "you are only as old as you think". Our mind is a very powerful tool to use to help get a good and heatlhy life. I really feel bad for people who feel you have to work 50 or 60 years and then once you retire you'll have time to enjoy life, to travel, and to do all the things you have been wanting to do for years. We are not guaranteed any amount of years. I have decided I am going to do the things I enjoy now and not wait.

We have all heard stories of someone dying the week or a few weeks after they retired. They had saved all their time and fun things to do when they retire and then they don't even get to enjoy them because it is too late. We should enjoy life to the fullest every day while we have the time.

Don't put your life on hold to live a longer life, how to be healthy and live better. Someday I'll do this, someday I'll do that. Someday doesn't always come so try to enjoy life every day it comes to you.

By doing the things you want to do now, and learning how to be healthy you will have less stress, you will be more relaxed and you don't have to worry about saving things for "someday" and you could live a better life.
