After you turn 60…

Many people feel unhappy, health-wise and security-wise, after 60 years of age, owing to the diminishing importance given to them and their opinions. But, it need not be so, if only we understand the basic principles of life and follow them scrupulously. Here are ten mantras to age gracefully and make life after retirement pleasant.

1. Never say ‘I am aged’ : 

There are three ages, chronological, biological, and psychological.

The first is calculated based on our date of birth; the second is determined by the health conditions; the third is how old we feel we are. While we don’t have control over the first, we can take care of our health with good diet, exercise and a cheerful attitude. A positive attitude and optimistic thinking can reverse the third age.

2. Health is wealth:

If you really love your kith and kin, taking care of your health should be your priority. Thus, you will not be a burden to them. Have an annual health check-up and take the prescribed medicines regularly. Do take health insurance coverage.

3. Money is important:

Money is essential for meeting the basic necessities of life ,keeping good health and earning family respect and security. Don’t spend beyond your means even for your children. You have lived for them all through and it is time you enjoyed a harmonious life with your spouse. If your children are grateful and they take care of you, you are blessed. But, never take it for granted.

4. Relaxation and recreation:

The most relaxing and recreating forces are a healthy religious attitude, good sleep, music and laughter. Have faith in God, learn to sleep well, love good music and see the funny side of life.

5. Time is precious:

It is almost like holding a  horses’ reins. When they are in your hands, you can control them. Imagine that every day you are born again. Yesterday is a canceled cheque. Tomorrow is a promissory note. Today is ready cash – use it profitably. Live this moment; live it fully, now, in the present time.

6. Change is the only permanent thing:   

We should accept change – it is inevitable. The only way to make sense out of change is to join in the dance. Change has brought about many pleasant things. We should be happy that our children are blessed.

7. Enlightened selfishness:

All of us are basically selfish. Whatever we do, we expect something in return. We should definitely be grateful to those who stood by us. But, our focus should be on the internal satisfaction and the happiness we derive by doing good for others, without expecting anything in return. Perform a random act of kindness daily.

8. Forget and forgive:

 Don’t be bothered too much about others’ mistakes. We are not spiritual enough to show our other cheek when we are slapped in one. But for the sake of our own health and happiness, let us forgive and forget them. Otherwise, we will be only increasing our blood pressure.

9. Everything has a purpose:

Take life as it comes. Accept yourself as you are and also accept others for what they are. Everybody is unique and is right in his own way.

10. Overcome the fear of death:

We all know that one day we have to leave this world. Still we are afraid of death. We think that our spouse and children will be unable to withstand our loss. But the truth is no one is going to die for you; they maybe depressed for some time. Time heals everything and they will go on.

મૃત્યુનો ઈશારો કરનારા હાઇકુ અને મુક્તકો-વિજય જોશી

મૃત્યુનો ઈશારો કરનારા હાઇકુ
પહેલો શ્વાસ
જન્મ અને મરણ
છેલ્લો ઉ્ચ્છશ્વાસ
આરંભ અને
અંત, પહેલો સ્વાસ
છેલ્લો ઉશ્વાસ
સ્વાસ ઉશ્વાસ
આગમન વિદાય
આરંભ અંત
મૃત્યુ ને સ્પર્શતા મુક્તકો
જીવન અને મરણ
અવિરત કરે દ્વંદ્વ યુદ્ધ
આજે તો જીવન જીત્યું
હોય કદી મરણનું મૃત્યુ?
જન્મ અને મૃત્યુ આવે બંને
એક આજે ને બીજું ગમે ત્યારે
શ્વાસ અને ઉચ્છશ્વાસ પવન બંને
એક આવે ને બીજો ભાગે
શોધીને થાક્યો તો’ય નો જડે
ખોયું જ નો’તું તો ક્યાંથી જડે?
મળ્યું બધું, તો’ય રડે
રોજ મરે એને કોણ રડે?
કદરૂપ હશે  કે રૂપાળું હશે
યુવાન હશે કે બુઢું હશે
પાતળું હશે કે જાડું હશે
દુખવટામાં દુખી થતું હશે?

11 Habits That Will Help You Live to 100- Email by Dr M J Kapadia

Healthy Steps to a Longer Life

One of the biggest factors that determines how well you age is not your genes but how well you live. Not convinced? A study published in 2009 in the British Medical Journal of 20,000 British folks shows that you can cut your risk of having a stroke in half by doing the following things: being active for 30 minutes a day, eating five daily servings of fruit and vegetables, and avoiding cigarettes and excess alcohol.

While those are some of the obvious steps you can take to age well, researchers have discovered that centenarians tend to share certain traits in how they eat, move about, and deal with stress—the sorts of things we can emulate to improve our own aging process. Of course, getting to age 100 is enormously more likely if your parents did. Still, Thomas Perls, who studies the century-plus set at Boston University School of Medicine, believes that assuming you’ve sidestepped genes for truly fatal diseases like Huntington’s, “there’s nothing stopping you from living independently well into your 90s.” Heck, if your parents and grandparents were heavy smokers, they might have died prematurely without ever reaching their true potential lifespan, so go ahead and shoot for those triple digits. Follow these 12 habits and check out Perls’ lifetime risk calculator to see how long you can expect to live. (વધુ…)
