Bea Boomer’s Vital Aging Project – Day 40– 4/3/15

Bea’s Buzz for Friday:

  • Walk with a like-minded friend, or better yet, join a walking club (no clubs in your area?  Start one up!)
  • Walk your dog.  Don’t have a dog buddy?  Volunteer to walk a dog at your local animal shelter
  • Find a walking trail at your local park or county park.  
  • Invest in an Ipod and download some fitness music or your favorite rock and roll tunes – you may want to start dancing your way down the sidewalk!
  • Walk at your local mall and do some window shopping at the same time.

Does anyone have any other ideas about adding fun to a walk?

Bea’s Buzz for Friday:

How to “bee” happier and enhance your social wellness:

1.  Be kind to someone else, quietly.

2.  Don’t speak; simply listen.

3.  Pay attention to your kids; give them your presence.

4.  Send a loved one an “un-birthday” card – just to show you’re thinking about them.

5.  Put yourself in someone else’s shoes for a few moments.

6.  Volunteer at an animal shelter.

7.  Help a neighbor.

8. Collect food for a local food pantry.

9. Have a kid in college?  Send ’em a care package.

10. Call a friend, just to chat.

 Friday’s Quote:

When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love. (Marcus Aurelius)
