What's Age Got to do With It?

What's Age Got to do With It?  Living Your Happiest & Healthiest Life by Robin McGraw


What's Age Got to do With It? honestly took some time for me to get through.  Although it is only 213 pages in 9 Chapters, I found myself trying to decipher between her life versus the advice and long list of experts that backed up her claims.  The extra jargon (for me) was distracting; however, I understand if it was required for liability purposes.  Personally, I would have much rather read through the advice and personal experiences without all of the "medical-ease" and long list of experts - most of whom - I don't know.  I would have preferred it to be at the end where if I had wanted to get more info, it would be there.

With that being said and out of the way, I must confess.  I love this book!!  It is truly chock full of great advice.  What's even better...  is that this advice is coming from a woman, whom may have it all compared to my or your standards now, but didn't have so much her whole life.  Within the chapter, What's Fitness Got to do With It?, Robin shares how in the beginning, she and her husband (Dr. Phil) lived in a small apartment and couldn't afford "a good pair of tennis shoes or sports bra!"  The point being that she gets it.  She's been there.  And it doesn't cost money to get in or stay physically fit and I think some of us forget that thinking that having a gym membership is the only way to get results.

Another chapter that I enjoy is, What's Skin Care Got to do With It?  I've been struggling with adult acne for some time.  I was oblivious to the fact how bad - and it's not as bad as some, so I'm not crying for me - but it really got to me when I saw my wedding photos.  When they arrived, instead of being happy and excited to share, I was mortified.  Not able to afford a dermatologist, I've tried many over the counter treatments and a popular mail order brand.  The only thing that works is the mail order brand, but unfortunately, it bleaches out my clothing along the neckline.  I canceled my subscription to the mail order brand some time ago and have been trying to create the right 'homemade' concoction.  Some seem to work and others not so much.  Now I can use Robin's advice as a guide.

Again, chock full of information, personal & expert advice and personal experiences.  Take a look at other topics covered.

As with any self help material, take what you find useful to you and take action.  If you don't take action, nothing will change.

With that, I leave you with a quote by Norman Vincent Peale.

"Believe in yourself!  Have faith in your abilities!  Without a humble, but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy."
