In our August newsletter, I reminded readers of an important choice we all have as we age: we can either (a) exercise and follow good health practices or (b) accept that in the future we may resemble potted plants! The image I suggested was of a plant that would be fed, watered and moved from place to place by caregivers.
I chose this dreadful image to motivate myself, as well as you. With many of us living longer, it seems only wise to plan for quality and not just quantity. We may have many more years, but will they be joyful, productive and really worth living? To help me make wise choices, I bought a reminder: a miniature potted plant. I placed it in the bathroom.
