Not many Americans who are now entering their retirement years are like Martha Stewart. She’s 71 and still physically, mentally and socially fit.
What’s her secrets?
Martha Stewart is an American business magnate, author, magazine publisher, and television personality. She was inspired by her mother who lived into her 90s and was healthy until right away before she died. She said that she always wonders what she’s doing to stay healthy.
Her book is very personal and inspirational resource for aging well and caring for others. She shares her experiences, tips, solution, advice and her success stories in maintaining strong health.
Martha Stewart compares aging to a bonsai tree, which is revered in Japan and, with proper care, blooms as it ages. Here are Stewart's "10 Golden Rules" for staying psycally and mentally fit into and beyond middle age:
• Eat well
• Maintain a healthy weight
• Stay physically active
• Get quality sleep
• Wear sunscreen
• Collaborate with a good primary care doctor regularly
• Find your passion
• Connect with others
• Stop complaining — change what you can, and accept what you cannot
• Stay curious
In her 71 she doesn't think about age much at all because she said she has so much to do, so many things to accomplish, and so much to look forward to.
