Getting older isn’t what it used to be! Boomers have had 15 or more years added to their lifespan since they were born – the first generation where this has happened.

Sure, there have always been some individuals who lived to a ripe old age. But now 10,000 people a day are turning 65 in America.

Having a Great Day



Most people would agree that it is a great day when you feel confident, in control, in an upbeat mood and ready and eager to face the challenges of the day. You could call it happiness but it is more. You are flourishing, energized, feeling good in the moment and facing life so you will feel good tomorrow.

Stress goes down and self-esteem goes up, and when self-esteem goes up so does your mood.
