Your Passions Through Lifelong Learning
Article Contributed by Dr. Eric Plasker, Marietta,
Often, people think the older they get,
the more inactive their lives should be. However, studies prove otherwise. Studies show
that seniors who participate in artistic classes are increasing the longevity of their lives and improving their health. Not
everyone has the urge to become an artist, but there are other things that older people can do to embrace their life. It’s
time to seize the moment – it’s what a 100-year lifestyle is all about!
Bring Passion Into Your Life
If you’ve been
in hibernation for the last few years, it’s time to wake up for the next phase of your life! In order
to bring passion back into your life, you need to get excited. Hang around a new and exciting crowd that
will release the inner kid in you. Start brainstorming ideas that might inspire you to do something new.
You’d be surprised how much your loved ones will support you. You’re never too old to
learn a new trick or create a new dream. Traveling more, open your own small business, write and publish a book or get more
involved with local charities. Whatever it is that excites you, go out and give it a try. The
time is now to start making a list of exciting goals that you want to accomplish during your lifetime.
Your Sixth Sense
Most think people have five unique senses that enable
us to really enjoy the world in which we live. According to Dr. Eric Plasker, there are six: taste, touch,
smell, sound, sight, and intuition. The sharper your five senses are, the more your intuition will thrive.
Although you might have never noticed this sixth sense, it has been following you throughout your entire life.
A secret centenarian trick is to keep your senses stimulated by spending more time with nature, listening, smelling
and seeing every small detail.
How Do You Love Yourself
In order to show that you truly care about yourself, you must keep your body healthy
by exercising. Remember that exercise not only keeps your body in shape, but it also helps to create a
healthy mind. This is a part of your own personal self-care program. Everyone should
create a self-care routine that will enable the body to adapt to stress, resist diseases, and be better balanced to maintain
a healthier natural body. While some think that actually coming up with a self-care program
takes up too much time, others understand that with a great self-care program in place, they have more energy in their everyday
Good Healthcare in Times of Crisis
Good healthcare is a way to help keep your body and mind in excellent condition.
People who take proactive measures by protecting their bodies with an effective healthcare and self-care program are
proven to respond better in time of crisis. While disease is not a normal part of our bodies, it does happen.
If you maintain a good overall healthcare system, you are taking the steps toward preventing diseases from ever occurring.

you make today can and will impact the quality of your life in the future. By developing great self-care
and health-care habits now, your chances of needing crisis care decrease drastically. Give your body some tender love and
care with regular chiropractic visits and adjustments. Talk to your chiropractor about how he or she can be an integral part
