How To Change The Future

I hope this note finds you well despite the madness of the times.

My wife and I just finished a climb in the Andes, to the high vista of Rainbow Mountain, over 17,000 feet.

It was one of the toughest climbs we’ve ever done and we weren’t sure if we would make it to the top…

but we did it :).

Part of the reason we made it is the story we told ourselves:

It doesn’t have to be perfect. Thirty steps, then rest. Thirty steps, then rest and take a drink.

Remind ourselves that “gettin’ old ain’t for sissies.” Then thirty more steps and repeat.

Creating a future that we want to live begins today by rewriting the script, changing the storyline and adapting.

And also laughing as much as possible, at ourselves and the world.

Studies have shown people who reframe getting old as an “adventure” actually live longer, 7.6 years to be exact.. Here’s the article.

Cognitive psychologists often describe our late forties and early fifties as one of the most challenging times for people to find happiness.

But when we arrive to our 60s, our 70s and our 80s, these should be the happiest times of our lives.

It begins by living well now. Taking care of our health, helping others, doing interesting things and rewriting the story of how we see the world, aging and life.

Remember, if we focus on the past, our thoughts will be filled with regret.

If we focus on the future, we’ll be living in fear.

All we can do is live in the present and do our best.

Rewriting the script is up to you!

If you’re on Medicare, here’s how to get Covid vaccinated quickly!

Now that Covid VACCINATIONS are finally rolling out, it’s imperative that Medicare consumers be proactive about getting vaccinated.

As a Certified Senior Advisor, my job is to make certain you have access to the resources that are important to you.

So if  getting vaccinated is important to you, click on the picture below to learn the steps you can take to get your COVID vaccination more quickly.

The first step should be to contact your primary care professional. Find out what it takes to get on the list.

If you discover the wait for the Covid vaccine will be inordinately long, the next step is to find out if there are other state approved Covid vaccination dispensaries.

The good news is that Kaiser Permanente has stepped up in many states to fill the role of an approved vaccination dispensary even for non Kaiser Permanente patients.

Age regulations vary by state. Some states require Medicare consumers to be 70, for others it is only age 65.

Get the number of your local Kaiser facility and ask them about this program. By doing so, you may get vaccinated a lot quicker.

Get outside and feel better

As we age into Medicare, it’s important to get outside and feel better.

As our son prepares for the Air Force, we’re doing our best to spend time together before he begins his service.

Especially in these times of COVID, one of the healthiest things we can do is to get outside and spend time with family and friends (assuming you like them 😉)

Studies have shown that time in nature relieves stress and anxiety, improves mood, increases energy and longevity and just makes us happier.

Even walking around the neighborhood or puttering in the garden, either way, you’ll be better and happier.

Here’s an article that confirms it.
