Enjoy Togetherness Know Matter What Your Age




The Person Inside Never Ages


Every stage of life has its own rewards so find out what they are and enjoy every new stage of your life. And one nice thing, it isn't boring and change always brings new adventures and new ways of thinking.

Enjoy the Time Your In

I recently viewed a tv program which involved people having corrective surgery on their body and there logic why they were doing it. One lady was in my mind really off the scale of why she was having face surgery all the time. This was having her fifth facial correction trying to maintain the look of her youth. The doctor informed her this is the last surgery he was doing for her. She indicated that she would find someone else to make it happen. Yes her face looked good but the rest of her body didn't match the new upgrades and really in my observation looked pretty much out of reality. She's trying to maintain her youth and that is reserved for the next generation.

Happiness Is Available During All Ages

I have found that life will treat you well if you accept the reality of life and go with the flow. Sure I would like to have some of the skills I had years ago, but that ant going to happen and so I accept what life is and have fun where I am in the scheme of things. I interact with many people of my level in life and we all seem to be handling it in different ways. Some are making their grand children the reason for their living. Others are ridding the wants of there youth like motorcycles and others a drag racing, snow mobiling and any other kinds of things they missed when they were young. And I think its great that were all dealing with the issue rather then taking the low road and viewing there journey coming to an end and have or are thinking about their final resting situation. And I’ve decided that further thinking of of increasing my years is unnecessary and unwanted so I leave it alone. I find living more important then dealing with something that I have no control over.

Why Fight It? Just Be Happy

Aging is natural, normal and Ive enjoyed every stage of it. So take it from one who knows, aging is a good thing that brings new adventures and magical feelings that you’ve never felt before. That’s my feeling and I’m sticking to it.

Being Rested Promotes a Good Marriage




Being Yourself Requires Sleep

It’s hard to be your best when your not getting enough sleep. And like most things there's a whole basket of problems that will influence your sleep. Lets explore some of the medical information that doctors have accumulated and see if there's a piece of information that might serve you well.

A Sleeping Place is for Sleeping Only

It appears that your sleeping environment plays a big part in creating the climate for better sleep experiences. First of all darkness is required so I have special coverings on the window that more then restrict the sunlight coming through. I have no tv or other distractions that would influence me adversely. Even what pictures I have are not thought provoking to me. I take nothing to bed with me that would trigger something for me to think about. So notes reminders and that stuff are a no no. The only light influence I have is from the clock which I turn and place a little towel over it to decrease the light reflection on the wall.


Were All Different and Why Shouldn't Our Sleeping Be the Same


I’m a little skeptical about the eight hour sleep requirement. First who arrived at this conclusion and how did they make that observation? Consequently I have developed my own thinking on the subject. I think it's an individual thing and should be customized to your thinking and not a general rule of thought. Before going to bed, I cat nap in the chair and between that and the bed six hours seems to be my need. And most of all I don't give it a thought. If I’m tired I will sleep. I think that's the responsibility of my body and it can make that best decision for me. And I’m of the opinion that forcing yourself to sleep borders on screwing up you natural body cycle. Many famous and successful people only take naps and that's how they survive. We humans are always trying to regulate things in the thinking it will better serve our life.

One of My Aids is a Little Wine

I am a wine drinking person. At night time I see the value of wine to help me relax and sleep better. Doctors don’t necessarily find this conclusion a good idea. But you know what it works for me and that’s what I will continue to do until a better thought comes along. Were all just different and that draws me to the conclusion that we will all require different situations in regard to this subject.

Find Your Path to Sleep

We should all stop listening to others and pay attention to ourselves and how we react to things and how things work for us. What works works and why try to change it to suit the teachings of those who don't know any more about the sleeping stuff then you do. That’s how I feel and I’m sticking to it.
