In honor of my dad, Walter, who passed in January but who would have turned 93 this month, I’d like to share a few things I learned from him about living an active LONG life filled with good health and vibrancy. I owe many tenets of wellbeing to him. Nearly every day, I practice these top 9. Which do you subscribe to or want to practice?
Of course I learned many more things from my dad over the years, often reluctantly, 😂 like how to handle tools, how to plant a trees to allow for root growth, how to take a cutting from one tree and graft it onto another tree, the necessity and “how to” of automobile maintenance and how to reuse or repurpose just about anything, but these are my top 9 that quickly come to mind. For fun, I’ve included an article written about him when he was “just” 80 years old and still competitively skiing. There’s some good thoughts here. Enjoy! Thank you for the lessons, Daddy! Happy birthday to you.
