Those guys in white coats and expensive bills for looking at your ancient body advise their aging patients to live life as if they could shed decades. My strategy is to enjoy funny current TV, as well as old movies featuring the Marx Brothers, Three Stooges and Mel Brooks. I also enjoy jokes, along with daily posting of cartoons, photos, rants and raves on this 90ishenewblack.com website. Some may call my actions a second childhood, and I happily agree.
I also try to participate in daily healthful activities. They include hiking, swimming, jogging, photoing, joking, and just clowning around. If you’re feeling the unwelcome pressures of old age, get up, get out and fight back. Often I get so involved in acting younger, I feel a vigorously youthful 83, instead of my actual age of 94.
