Just for Fun: The Joys of Growing Old Together

An elderly husband and wife noticed that they were beginning to forget little things around the house. They decided to see their physician to get help. She told them that many people their age find it useful to write themselves little notes as reminders.
The couple thought this sounded wonderful, and left the doctor's office very pleased with the advice.

When they got home, the wife said, "Dear, will you please go to the kitchen and get me a dish of ice cream with some strawberries? Now, better write that down, because I know you'll forget."

"Don't be silly," replied the husband. "A dish of ice cream and some strawberries. I can remember that between here and the kitchen!"

"OK, dear, but please also add some whipped cream on top. Now you'd really better write it down. You'll forget," said the wife.

"My memory's not that bad," said the husband.

And with that, he shut the kitchen door behind him. The wife could hear him banging pots and pans, a noise inconsistent with making a dish of ice cream, strawberries, and whipped cream.

He emerged 15 minutes later, walked over to his wife, and presented her with a plate of bacon and eggs.

The wife looked at the plate, then glanced at her husband and said, "See, you forgot my toast!"

Use the “Auction Effect” to Sell Your House Faster

Everyone knows what an auction is — bidders place bids and the highest bids wins. Auctions create energy and excitement and cause things to sell on the spur of the moment. What if you could sell your house using the energy of an auction without having to do an actual auction?

Can You Motivate Yourself? It Depends...

Do you ever feel guilty when you can’t get something done, even though you know it’s vital that you achieve it, like losing weight or saving money? One reason we feel guilty is that we don’t feel as motivated as we think we should, given the importance of the goal.

But there are two types of motivation. One is a burning desire, where we are pulled to achieve. The other is a reluctant need to fulfill a necessity, where we feel pushed into it. We don’t get the endorphin lift from should that we do from want.

The trick to feeling motivated about the shoulds is to create desire so strong that it burns away resistance.

Can you fake desire to achieve? Can you force yourself to feel as excited about achieving a need as much as a want?

Some people would say yes, that you can make the mind do anything, including overcome reluctance. Psychotherapy and hypnotherapy have been able to accomplish that for many people.

But an easier way (perhaps) to be motivated is to have an external motivator...a coach, parent, partner, or friend who will constantly prod you forward. You must give that person permission to prod you, or it will not work. They must apply consistent, supportive pressure.

You also must have a clear reason to achieve the goal. For instance, you want to lose 10 pounds before the holidays, because ___ (why?). The clearer you can picture the details of that desire, the easier it will be for your external helper to motivate you. And the more you’ll want it!

Talk a Walk — Grow Your Brain

The benefits of taking a brisk walk go beyond heart health. It actually increases the size of your brain.

In a study by the National Institute on Aging, 120 people aged 55 to 80 were divided into two groups, with half instructed to briskly walk and do other aerobic exercise for 40 minutes per day, three times per week for one year. The other half did exercises to stretch and tone their muscles, but not brisk walking or other aerobic exercise.

After one year, scientists measured the size of the hippocampus, a section of the brain that tends to shrink with age.
In the aerobic group, the volume of the hippocampus had increased by 2% at the end of one year, while in the non-aerobic group the hippocampus had decreased by 1.4%.
