10 things to stop doing in your 50’s

My view above the clouds!

I just read a post called “19 things to stop doing in your 20’s” and it was a really good read! It gave me the idea to leap forward a few decades with some ideas of my own.

Here are some of my suggestions…

  1. Stop letting your career overtake other important aspects of your life.
  2. Stop lying about your age and your weight – it is only what YOU think that matters – accept what you cannot change but change what you CAN.
  3. Don’t neglect yourself – take care of your appearance because a little bit of effort can make a big difference.
  4. Don’t write yourself off by saying you are too old to start something new, be it career, travel, university…
  5. Just because 1970’s gear is in fashion again, don’t interpret this as your chance to be a teenager again 😦
  6. Try not to talk about your health concerns unless it is to your doctor or a close friend who really wants to know.
  7. Don’t get bamboozled by technology but make an effort to keep up to date with the latest gizmos on the market.
  8. Don’t forget your achievements – there are bound to be many over the years – remind yourself of your successes and forgive yourself for your failures.
  9. Don’t forget how to laugh – and to laugh at yourself and life in general. A sense of humour is invaluable.
  10. Don’t let anyone tell you what is good for you – you are more qualified than anyone to know what is good for YOU – remember that πŸ™‚
