With age comes wisdom, experience and less insecurities. We all meet people who act younger than they are, they are often physically active and have a real ‘zest’ for life.

We all make mistakes, what is important is to learn from them and to share your experiences. Try not to dwell on your past, you can’t change it now, but you can change the future.

Take an interest in what inspires and motivates others and you will make new friends in the process.
Staying mentally active
People who are mentally active stay younger and have lower levels of depression and anxiety. It is easy these days to stare at a screen, the TV, the tablet or social media pages are all too alluring and you can become addicted.
