Rising at 4 am to turn on the computer and attempt to Blog and work on other little projects ever so constructively in a deconstructive fashion has left my brain very jittery. It doesn't happen that often so I went with the flow. At this moment any energy I have left is flowing right out the door and down the drain. So it's ironic that I want to tell you all about the International Council on Active Ageing and what they say about 'active ageing'. This is their definition and I agree with it wholeheartedly. Pass the link on to your ageing friends and family. It can't hurt!
"We can change the way we age by staying active, to the fullest extent possible, within all areas of life: physical, spiritual, emotional, intellectual, professional, environmental and social. Aging within these dimensions of wellness keeps us involved, alert and enjoying a productive life.
The concept of active aging is summed up in the phrase “engaged in life.” Individuals can participate in life as fully as possible, regardless of socioeconomic status or health conditions, within the wellness dimensions."
