SENIORS: ACTIVE, INACTIVE, REACTIVE, PROACTIVE

Nov 15th, 2011 | By Dr Jerry D Elrod | Category: Senior Moments Blog

The choices of activity or lack of it fall under the headings in today’s title. Two are positive and two are negative. Two are desirable and two are undesirable. Two require more initiative and allow for healthier results than the other two. Two stimulate more choices for involvement in productive ways than do the other two. Let’s look at each of them in turn.

ACTIVE choices mean you are or have examined options which propel, impel, compel you to be up and doing, to involve yourself in as much activity and routine ways for keeping your mind alert, your body functioning, your spirit stimulated, your personality vibrant. ACTIVE is a state of being, requiring movement, dexterity, mental acuity, alert frame of mind, bodily sensitivity. No more just “lying around.” That is the sin and temptation of the second of our choices.
