Advice from our Partners over at the Auburn Senior Center

 

Gratitude turns what we have into enough. 

 

It is challenging to stop ourselves from focusing on what is hard and what we have on our plate, whether it be illness, financial woes, job frustration and the like. These things do, in fact, grab a lot of attention and are real. But, what if, at least once a day, you were to just stop for a moment, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and find something that is worth appreciating? It might take thirty seconds out of your day and for that moment, your focus goes inward, instead of on external circumstances. 

 

Implementing this thirty second practice can do nothing but bring you a moment of respite from the hard stuff. And you might even find that you choose to practice this more than once a day. Watch what happens when you try this-and give yourself the always available gift of gratitude. - Anonymous.

 

 Auburn Senior Center would suggest the following ideas for some activities.   

    Create a walking routine. (inside or outside) Aim for 10 minutes of movement 3 times a day.

    Check out Youtube for videos on exercise and dance. When searching include senior and the activity. eg. senior and yoga.

    Stay connected. Call a friend or family member daily.

Turn the TV off and focus on your hobbies. Knitting and crocheting, gardening, coloring, rock painting and reading are just a few ideas.
