474. Forever Young

Yesterday, Roji and The Brunette (the 2 caregivers - R.S.) said that I have a secret which I am not revealing: how I keep looking young all these years. I disagree with them, as I see the ravages of my disease in my body, but I'll try to explain.

  • First of all the appearance. Slim people, in general, look younger. Though not always. There are people who when loosing weight rapidly, grow old overnight. 
  • Don't think about chronological age, but rather synchronize with your internal feeling.
  • Eat healthy good. Decide that white sugar and flour are a sort of poison, and as such shouldn't be ingested.
  • Eat only just as much as will almost fill you up.
  • Drink plenty of water. Only water.
  • Exercise. Not because you have to, but because it's important.
  • Be curious.
  • Learn something new all the time. My father studied English when he was 90.
  • Be optimistic.
  • Enjoy the small things and don't wait for big events.
  • Enjoy your own company.
  • Dress young.
