" I want to be all used up when I die ." George Bernard Shaw

Have you read any history books or the bible.? Did our ancestors just sit around on the couch and play with computers. Our bodies were designed to be in motion. It is when we stop the motion that we get in the most trouble. That and extra large fries .

So get out there and use the body that you were given. Play a sport you always wanted to play. Run and feel the wind on your face. Visit a place you've never been and hike the day away. Tend your garden ,chop your wood, mow your grass with a push mower.

Expand your mind to the fullest . Take on a interesting new subject. Learn a new language. Play some brain twisting mind games. Get good at math and finances .You should be learning every day. Do some meditation .

Keep moving and pushing and you will sleep better at night ,your body and soul will be very happy .

If you want to do something and have the time then go ahead . If you want to do something and have no time then find some.

Keep moving and pushing and using it up . Get the last drop out of life . Don't leave wishes and dreams behind.

    Busy hands are happy hands! Not so sure that works for the whole body.. Busy bodies are happy bodies? emoticon Well, maybe not, but you are so right about needing to keep pushing, keep moving, keep learning, and keep trying. Once your backside hits the couch with your favorite snacks and a laptop, that's where the trouble begins! (Well, at least for me, anyway) emoticon

    Thanks for the reminders! Just keep pushing and you can make it. And we can definitely do whatever we set our minds to do....we just have to set our minds to do it!

    excellent suggestions. I work hard on my Spanish since I live in Mexico. It's a lot harder when you get older to learn a new language but I keep trying to use it or lose it.
have a great evening.
