Only about 10% of people age successfully?
Follow up to this list from last night came today from @
mangan150 on Twitter who is a must follow. He cited data that concludes only 10% of older people age successfully.
Don't focus on the exact number, focus on the reality that the vast majority of us do no age successfully and in many instances, this outcome comes down to habits; vigorous exercise (lift weights) and proper diet (cut carbs).
Be part of the 10%.
Both @easymoneyme and @nicolafisher wrote lists called "10 things I am learning as I age." As I get older I find this topic of more interest. I think I've figured a few things out and am motivated to share what I've learned. This list is a combo of things I did earlier on and observations now at 56.
1. We are told some of the most important basics when we are young
We learn at an early age we need to save money even if we don't get a full education on financial literacy. We learn at an early age not to eat too much sugar even if we don't get a full study of macro nutrients or micro nutrients. We learn very early on that we need to exercise even if we don't get much about how to do so effectively. With the above building blocks, it is up to us to learn how to do those basics.
