Today we’re looking at O for Opportunities. There are so many ways we can improve our lives and our brains by looking for new opportunities!
A few days ago, someone commented to me about a man in his early 60s who has developed a tremor, “We don’t worry about that symptom! We know it’s just age.”
That’s such a short-sighted attitude, folk. If it was “just age” then every person in their sixties would have a tremor! Yet, I know many ninety year olds who have no shakes whatsoever.
Yes, it could be as a result of nerve degeneration as the person grows older, but it could also be caused by so many other things: a hormone deficiency; a nutritional imbalance; an over-abundance of stimulation of a part of the brain, such as too many violent video games; a lack of exercise; or many of the other things we’ve looked at over the past two weeks.
The moral of this story is never to just accept the first reason that comes to mind, unless it’s obviously correct (such as sunburn after a day in the sun!) Don’t attribute any symptoms to “just age!” Be certain you take every opportunity to find out the cause of any unpleasant symptom. And look at every opportunity to improve your life, improve your mind. Others have done it. So can you!
Rose has a special message for us all, no matter our age. She urges us never to miss out on opportunities!
