Self-care is not an occasional indulgence. It is the process of making a consistent commitment to your health. What have you done for yourself today? #selfcare #healthcare
forbes.com Self-care is not an indulgence. It's the ongoing practice of keeping ourselves physically and emotionally healthy.
How do you define “old” - by a number? A physical or mental benchmark? Loss of independence and need for assistance? The answer is subjective and changes based on decade of life. I have seen nonagenarian patients that can out perform younger generations in balance and gait speed. It’s definitely a moving target 🎯
Millennials, now in their 20s and 30s, say that old starts at 59, according to a 2017 study by U.S. Trust. Gen Xers, now in their 40s — and no doubt with a new appreciation for just how close they are to entering their 50s — say 65 is the onset of old. Boomers and the Greatest Generation pegged 73 as the beginning of old. Clearly, much depends on the perspective of who’s being asking to define “old.”
