Where Does the Time Go?- Happy Thanksgiving- Nov. 2014

Where Does The Time Go? November 2014
Hi Everybody Dr. Norris here. 

This month's newsletter includes an interesting commentary on something that we all can relate to ...aging.  

The Truth about Getting Older

Do you realize that the only time when we like to get older is when we’re kids? If you’re less than 10 years old, you’re so excited about aging that you think in fractions. “How old are you?” “I’m four and a half!” You’re never thirty-six and a half. You’re four and a half, going on five! That’s the key.

You get to your teens, now they can’t hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead. “How old are you?” “I’m gonna be 16!” You could be 13, but hey, you’re gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life…You become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony. You BECOME 21!

But then you turn 30. Whoa, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There’s no fun now, you’re just a sour-dumpling. What’s wrong? What’s changed?

You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you’re PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put the brakes on, it’s all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50 and your dreams are gone. But wait! You MAKE it to 60. Like you didn’t think you would!

So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.
You’ve built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it’s a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!

You get into your 80’s and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn’t end there. Into the 90s you start going backwards; “I was JUST 92.”

Then a strange thing happens. If you make it to 100, you become a little kid again. “I’m 100 and a half!”

Always remember, life is short. Enjoy the simple things. Laugh often, long and loud. Cherish your health and surround yourself with what you love.

Hydrotherapy Helps Reduce Stress.

Relaxing in a hot bath relieves sore muscles and joints, reduces stress and tension, and promotes a good night's sleep. Add some soft music, lighting and scented bubbles to create an inexpensive spa experience.
