7 Tips For Living With The Wisdom Of A 70-Year-Old And The Passion Of A 20-Year-Old

The stress and strain of constantly being connected can sometimes take your life -- and your well-being -- off course. GPS For The Soul can help you find your way back to balance.

GPS Guides are our way of showing you what has relieved others' stress in the hopes that you will be able to identify solutions that work for you. We all have de-stressing "secret weapons" that we pull out in times of tension or anxiety, whether they be photos that relax us or make us smile, songs that bring us back to our heart, quotes or poems that create a feeling of harmony, or meditative exercises that help us find a sense of silence and calm. We encourage you to look at the GPS Guide below, visit our other GPS Guides here, and share with us your own personal tips for finding peace, balance and tranquility.

After seven decades of living, it’s apparent to me that there are lots of myths floating around about aging. Indeed, aging is an inescapable body thing, but it need not affect your passion for life. When you bring alertness to your day, with the intent of savoring your experiences like a child, you will find that you are still a mischievous rascal. There’s still plenty of life to enjoy.

I have a friend who's 95. He loves to tell me that he meets Father Time, head-on every morning, and says the same thing, “I deny that I am yours to do as you want to. It’s still my life and I plan to live it my way.”

When you make it a point to live out your elder years consciously, you quickly feel that enthusiastic child inside of you. That child is still very much alive; the only difference is that with maturity comes wisdom, so you lose the childhood innocence, but not your love for life.
