Don’t sell yourself short, my friend.
Millions of seniors slip into “what the heck” mode once they pass a certain age.
They think they don’t have much time left, so they figure — what the heck! — they may as well have that extra slice of cheesecake… skip their doctor visits… and many even stop taking their vitamins.
It’s a lot more common than you might think, with new research showing that 1 in 3 seniors who should be expected to live at least another decade don’t actually believe it.
That adds up to 15 million older Americans who think they’re going to die despite the fact that, statistically speaking, some of the best years of their lives could still be ahead of them.
But those years could be filled with illness and disease if they end up going into “what the heck” mode — and that shortened life expectancy could become a self-fulfilling prophecy.
Yes, my friend, when you choose to stop caring you could soon end up not living!
Don’t let this happen to you.
The same study finds that 12 percent of seniors believe they’ll live longer than what should be expected, based on stats.
Those folks have the right idea, because there is NOTHING to stop you from beating the odds. I’ve met bunches of healthy, vibrant seniors in their 70s, 80s, 90s and even some folks who’ve hit the century mark — and there’s no reason you can’t be one of them.
But that means instead of going into “what the heck” mode you have to shift into “give a darn” mode — and you have to start caring about yourself, your body and your life.
Take your vitamins, eat a healthy diet low in carbs in high and delicious animal fats and make sure you don’t put off those doctor appointments.
Be part of the 12 percent. Believe in your future, my friend, because you can still have a long one ahead of you.
And if you give a darn, they could be some of the best years of your life.
