-Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight, and height.

-Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches! Pull you down. (Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

-Keep learning: Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain get idle. "An idle mind is the devil's workshop." And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

-Enjoy the simple things. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath. And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with him or her!

-The tears happen: Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who is with us our entire life, is you.

-LIVE while you are alive. Surround yourself with what you love: Whether it's family, pets, music, plants, and hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.

-Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

-Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.
