Seniors: It Depends on Your Attitude

Nov 2nd, 2010 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

How difficult is it to live as a Senior?   How practical is it to discover a day to day formula that allows for an overall healthy frame of mind, spirit and body? 

It depends on your attitude.

Here are the components that make up attitude:

  • A strong sense of humor.  Laugh.  Laugh often.  Laugh a lot.
  • An ability to smile.  Allow your face to demonstrate that you are a happy person.
  • An ability to listen.  When someone wants to engage you, give them a chance.  Don’t cut them off.  But don’t allow them to dominate to the point of boredom.

  • Approach persons positively.  Let them know you enjoy their presence.
  • Stay focused on the person you are with.  Don’t allow yourself to be distracted.
  • Shift topics, so that the two of you discover a variety of subjects you can enjoy.
  • Point out the strong points of other people.  They will feel better about themselves, and you will be the reason.
  • Keep your posture, your body language such that it communicates strength, pleasantness, and a good attitude.
  • Don’t go negative about health, weather, state of affairs, etc.   Doing so will ruin the goal of the day:  Keep a good attitude.

There you are.  Remember living happily as a senior depends on your attitude.
