Never too old to play!

 

You are never too old to become a kid again. Every grown up wants to relive their glory days or turn back the clock on those embarrassing moments. But when you are a kid, none of that matters and you just want to have fun. Don’t let your habitual adult patterns of acting and thinking hold you back from bringing forward the kid-like feeling inside of you.

Watch the innocence and spontaneous joy of children and even spend time playing with them. Enjoy favorite golden oldies music, childhood novel, movie or even a  meal-  take the time to go back and listen, read, watch or eat it. Memories will flood back to you of your time as a child. Remember people in your life that influenced you in a positive way, (to like what you did?) and realize how much of an impact they have had on your life.

We are inviting you to  recollect happy childhood memories in our peaceful and friendly restaurant.

Never Too Old To Be Active!
Healthy Tips

Get moving! Physical activity stimulates feel-good hormones while reducing stress and can help you feel younger no matter your age. In fact, exercise favors the availability of the amino acid tryptophan, which aids in the production of serotonin (the feel-good neurotransmitter), after 30 minutes of pumping your muscles, and the effect can last up to 90 minutes, according to a study published in Medicine & Exercise Science in Sports & Exercise.

You're Never Too Old to be Active

Don't think that all is lost just because you've seen the turn of many decades. Here are few suggestions on how to begin and continue

Make Exercise Fun, not a Burden

Evidence shows you can rejuvenate your body at any age once you begin to exercise, even if the last time you wore your sneakers was to run to the supermarket. The most daunting obstacle to overcome is not your age or lack of time, but rather making that commitment to begin.

Your first steps are to find something you really enjoy and get rid of the mindset that you "have to" exercise. You should want to. Once you make that mental switch, you'll feel more empowered and exercise will become part of your lifestyle

How do you find that special something? Consider your personality and tastes. Once you have an idea of what you like, you're ready to jump in.

Set yourself up for exercise success

Create a variety of goals. While it's good to have a long-term goal (dropping X number of pounds, exercising five days a week, running your first 10K, etc.), it's even more important to have several mini, short-term goals that lead to the bigger ones. Experts agree that the feeling of achievement is a necessary fuel to help you stay on track.

Tell everyone. 

Make sure your friends and family are aware of your new fitness endeavor. Their support will be valuable.

Respect your plan. 

Exercising is neither a luxury nor leisure time, even though you should have fun while doing it. Exercise is a medical appointment without the tests and paperwork. It will make you look and feel healthier, younger and happier. So don't feel bad if you have to rearrange your life at times to make this important meeting.

Set up rewards and periodic re-evaluations. 

Next to your mini goals, pencil in some mini rewards, such as a new dress or a massage, but make sure it's something you truly look forward to. Reevaluate your goals and exercise plan every three weeks to avoid reaching a plateau.

Believe! 

Positive thinking has been shown to improve health, exercise behaviors, exercise adherence and overall optimism across a lifespan. "Specifically, research has indicated that individuals who think they can lose weight or increase their physical activity typically do," says Charmaine Defranceso, Ph.D., associate professor of movement science and sports psychology at Florida State University.
