Feeling Good


The fact is, we could all take better care of ourselves-physically and emotionally. For some of us, that may mean getting more exercise, losing weight, or eating a healthier diet. For others, it may mean learning how to make time for the people we care about or learning how to manage stress so we have the energy to meet the challenges that come our way each day. What are some of the things you can do every day to feel better in your life? Look back to the questions on the quiz for some answers. If you answered “No” to any of the first five questions, these are the areas to work on with your physical health. If you answered “Yes” to any of the last five questions, these are the areas to pay attention to with your emotional health. Feeling good involves taking care of both your physical health and your emotional needs. Think about how you might pay better attention to your overall well-being. Is it by eating a healthier diet? Making more time for fun in your life? Getting more exercise? Renewing your spiritual self? Next, jot down on your agenda the things you can do to help your body and mind feel better, using as your own ideas. “Whether we live to a vigorous old age lays not so much in our stars or our genes as in ourselves,” writes Harvard physician George Vaillant in his helpful book Aging Well. Take care of yourself. Maintain close friendships. And choose to feel good even when things aren’t wonderful. Experts agree that these are the secrets to successful aging-and to feeling good throughout your life.
