Food for Thought

Note If You Are Above 55 Years of Age.

Written by Daily Social Share

In USA, immediately you turned 55 years of age, you are a senior citizen.

Although, you would not be collecting your social security benefits until you are 62 years of age.

The fact remains you are a senior citizen at 55

Listen to the advice below:


Every aged person must agree there is need for extra personal well-being.

  1. Avoid sleeping alone at night in the room.
  2. Don’t ever lock yourself up alone in your room at night.
  3. Where your spouse is not available, get somebody to stay with you, especially at night.
  4. Don’t be too busy/tired to take your drug(s), especially before retiring to bed.
  5. Take to your Doctor’s directive/advice, especially on what to eat or not what to eat or do.
  6. Ageing is not a sickness, it’s a natural process.
  7. Avoid loneliness at all cost.

8 Make yourself happy, no matter the circumstances, because life goes on with or without you.

  1. Reach out to people or places of interest, for as long as your strength could carry/allow you.
  2. Be less rigid/ conservative about issues and circumstances.
  3. Make people around you happy, but not at the expense of your joy.
  4. Chase wealth less, rather, love to enjoy that much you have stored up over time.
  5. Be prayerful and less materialistic.
  6. Be grateful to God at all times.
  7. Make the effort to take walks early in the morning to renew your ageing body🚢🏽🚢🏽🚢🏽
  8. Avoid eating after 6:30 pm and where you feel very hungry in the night, eat fruits only and drink a lot of water.

God bless you πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½Nature is not kind to men who did not cater for their old ages when they were young .

Build your own house where you will live in your old age .

Build businesses that will feed you in your old age .
Create conveniences that will engage you in your old age .
Build friendship and goodwill that will serve you in your old age .
Right now , start to be relevant in your mosque or Church and community so you could be reckoned with in your old age.

  • Old age could be very lonely and agonising for men who did not plan for it.
  • May you not become a liability on your children in your old age .
  • May your children not wish you an early death when they can’t manage you again in your old age .
    An old age without penny in your pocket is a slow, agonising death sentence !

Be warned now…!
There are three categories of people you cannot do without as we are growing older , your family , people in your place of worship and childhood friends , who include your Old School mates .

Friends , take it or leave it, at 60 and above , loneliness kills because the children you are working hard for now will go their ways to raise their own immediate families and pursue their own destinies , just as we did now . At that time it’s these people in these 3categories that take away loneliness and keep your company .

Please, out of your busy schedule , set time out to say HI ! to your realoldagecureagainstloneliness . In the 3- categories , the only one that knows you better and can relate with you down to heart are your childhood friends .
So why are you feeling too big or inferior to come along ? It’s not possible we’ll all be at the same level . Some will be very rich , moderate and some poor – that is the beauty and misery of life. Some will be so educated , while some will still be Secondary school certificate holders .

If you are up , bring others that are willing up , and if you are down , never bring those that are up down with your mouth or attitude .
At close to 50 years and above , you have 10 to 15 years of active working life.

Stop saying I am this, I am that . Flow into other people’s lives and let then flow into yours .

Respect friendship and value relationship .

Let us pass this to all friends on our contacts , Rich or Poor .

You can’t exhibit pride . Live simple .
