In my line of work, it is common for people whose everyday situations take up a lot of brain power and are the focus of most decisions.
But to keep the mind young, it is necessary to observe if we are working for the things that are good for us and not just being carried away by the current of the things that happen around or to us.
It's not living only focused on the past or the future, especially in depressive, anxious, hopeless, lost, and dark explanations, because these attitudes age and tire us.
Breathing deep a few times a day helps calm our internal system. Sleeping and eating well are the key to keeping the body healthy.

It's using our past as a remarkable library of information we can search at any time and continue making plans for the future to a life that makes sense and align with who we want to be.
But it's important to remember that the greatest pleasure is in the journey. Learning to appreciate and enjoy our life journey, we understand that destiny loses weight and importance. Thus, this makes us sure that we will always be okay, regardless of any obstacles that emotionally arise along the way, because we chose and walked each step.
Live your life in the present, and be young every day!
