Young Is The New Old.

Why Not.

What’s stopping us from staying young.

Even when we’re feeling a little bit old.

Is ‘old’ such a dirty word.

Because old can be the new young.

Easy.

Your body will follow your mind.

How your mind works is the secret to how your body works.

Yes, your body can be the result of regular visits to the gym.

But doesn’t your mind tell you to go?

Your mind is really a control freak.

It’ll tell you if it thinks you need it.

And have you been told lately?

About anything.

About what your mind tells you that you need?

Even what your body tells you what you need.

You don’t always need to visit the gym

What do you need?

Yoga?

Stretching?

Meditation?

Walking the dog?

You’ll be told.

Are you listening?

As a winner of an award for excellence in business creativity said:

“I just trust my beeps.”

Start listening to your beeps and there’s a good chance you may be an award winner too.

Even for turning your age into an example of the New Young.

Read the book Ageless Body, Timeless Mind’ by Dr Deepak Chopra.

Everyone should read it.

I have no financial interest, I just believe in it’s message.

And its author.

It’s how we can stay younger healthier longer.

At least we should do something about keeping our minds and bodies going long after the ‘old’ word takes hold.

It’s certainly not in my vocabulary.

I wish you long life and a happy one.

Neil.

3 Secrets Of Staying Young.

I started my plan to stay young at the age of 24 when I enrolled in the first full-time yoga school in Australia, the Gita School of Yoga.

Ever since I have practiced the 10 chakra asanas (positions) I learned every day without fail for the next 50 years.

So this is the basis of my first secret to staying young.

Secret 1. Take care of your body.

Learn the basic yoga positions and perform them every morning, like the first thing you do on getting out of bed so it becomes routine. Search ‘Chakra Yoga’.

Do muscle stretching daily with gentle exercises, for me it was mostly lying on the mat, to strengthen the muscles that support your spine and lower back. Search Callan Pinkney books or videos.

Buy an electric massage chair. Everyone should have one. Even to relax your body after mowing the lawn, it’s magical. Get the vibration type not the roller type.

Walk. I lost my car when my business and I went bankrupt 30 years ago and I’ve walked everywhere since.

At that time I was having trouble with my lower back and my legs, which caused me to take up the muscle stretching and persist with the yoga.

Two years ago I was diagnosed with lumbar canal stenosis which I believe had been kept at bay for those 28 years by my exercise program.

Still, they told me I’d never walk again and would be wheelchair bound for the rest of my life; well I’m still walking (with the help of a support) and there’s no wheelchair in sight.

Whatever you do, keep moving.

Secret 2. Keep your mind active.

I’ve written and self-published 5 books in the last 20 years. They’re not novels as everyone expects them to be. They’re non-fiction, about what I’ve learned about life (just like this blog post).

I write and publish a blog post every weekend.

I also post to my Twitter timeline and to 30 Facebook Fan Pages once a week at least.

I’m thinking about writing my next book.

I meditate once a week with a group of people under a teacher.

Secret 3. Your thoughts create your reality.

Think young. Think well.

You are not the statistic that represents the number of times the Earth has travelled around the Sun since you were born.

For this reason I’m not going to tell you my age.

But when I turned 50 I was so horrified that I decided to always be 49. Which is my true age today.

Think about it.

I invite you to visit my Author Page listing all of my books, where you can read more or order your copy of any of them online.

Best wishes,

Neil
