How to be Ageless: Learn From the Top 2 Regrets Of the Dying

I believe anxiety and fear makes us older and I believe society also ages us ( because of its assumptions). I am giving easy 2 step instructions on how to stay young in a time where FEELING young is overrated.

Step 1: Take Time to know What You Love

“Your distress about life might mean you have been living for the wrong reason, not that you have no reason for living.”  ~Tom O’Connor

There was a book written on the top 5 regrets of the dying.  By  a nurse who worked in palliative care.
She documented there highs and lows , and their  top regrets .

Do you know whats the top one?

  •     “I wish I’d had the courage to live a life true to myself, not the life others expected of me. “

What ever expectation you have, examine why you have it.  Is it other peoples expectation of you instead of your own dreams and goals? Is  it to prove to some snobs your worth it? If its to prove to anyone in your life you’re worth it, than its not your calling or purpose.

Step 2:  Don’t Work Too hard, Work SMART

“Endurance is frequently a form of indecision.”  ~Elizabeth Bibesco, Haven, 195

You know whats the top 2 regret of the dying?

  •     ” I wish I didn’t work so hard.”

Whats the point of working so darn hard? Is it so at the end you would get what you want? why do you want it? So you can have a reason to be HAPPY.

You don’t need permission to be happy now, you don’t need to attain anything at this moment to be happy.
To be honest if your reading this post its very likely you are above poverty line and all your survival needs are met. So being happy is only shut down by what you feel you have to do before being  happy.

Cut it short and be happy now 😀 ( have aspirations and goals,  but don’t let them be your only reason for happiness)

If you want to know more on all you need to reverse aging than all you have to do is read Deepak Chopra’s 7 Secrets to Grow Younger, Live Longer

Peace

whats do you do or think to stay youthful?
