We’re over the hill, our hair is greying (if it’s even there at all), our joints are aching, our skin is sagging, and there’s not really anything we can do to stop it. Our bodies all age, leaving us wishing for the energy and vitality of the youth we once had. So instead of moping about, yearning for days gone by, let’s use this new year as an opportunity to start a new outlook.
Let’s resolve to have a healthier, happier soul. After all, there’s no sense in spending the last years of your life in a melancholy, negative state of mind when you could just as easily find your inner child and live the rest of your life to the fullest. But how?
The change must start with how we view our “problems.” See them more as challenges, or hurdles to be jumped. The more we successfully clear the hurdle, the easier it will be to clear the same jump in the future. Unless we’re victims of a terminal illness, almost all of our “problems” are fixable. For example, if you’re incontinent, rather than being ashamed, accept the handicap, support yourself as best you can by ordering incontinence supplies discreetly through a courier service or medical couriers, and go about your daily life as if there’s nothing wrong.
Be proactive about the things that require regular health maintenance, like non-terminal illnesses. Take care of yourself, follow your doctor’s recommendations about a healthy eating plan or diet changes, exercise and medications, and you might be surprised at how well you can learn to cope with health concerns like diabetes. Ordering your diabetes testing supplies on time, making daily monitoring easier and more consistent is an easy way to stay on top of your health and wellness. Things like that are too easy to control for you to let laziness drag you into the depths of sickness.
If you’re having trouble getting out of the house on a regular basis, consider financially planning for home delivery of supplies, prescriptions, and maybe even a home alert system. For a small additional monthly amount, you could employ a medical courier will deliver products and information you can’t live without. Some online distributors provide courier delivery service as part of a membership or for recurrent orders on your home medical supplies and even work directly with Medicare for easy billing!
No matter how dire your non-terminal circumstances may seem, you have always been much bigger than your so-called “problems.” Rather than letting circumstances control you this year, why not give Father Time a run for his money and start controlling your own life, despite your circumstances.
