To have a childlike curiosity, joy and excitement about life helps keep us energetic and young. Just as we take care of our bodies with proper nutrition and movement; our minds and soul need consistent nourishment too.
Remember when you were a child and you had an endless stream of curiosity about everything; you laughed deep from your belly when something was funny; and you cared about other peoples feelings too… Just because the number grows larger doesn’t mean we have to give this part of ourselves up or suppress this. And it definitely doesn’t mean that you lack maturity.
Find ways to play in your life; find the joy and enjoyment of yourself and others. Care about others feelings; laugh a big belly laugh at least once a day…Nurture the ‘Kid’ inside of you and those in your life and you will feel the numbers fade away.
