I have a neighbor. She looks young and beautiful although she is over 70. She can do all thehousework, read newspapers and learn something new on the Internet. I often see her do taichi(太极) inthe morning and dance inthe evening.
Last week a reporter from a magazine asked her how she kept so young and healthy. Shereplied, "I have a secret for staying young and healthy. It is quite simple. Keep your mind active,be interested in the world around you, and learn at least one new thing every day," Don't thinkyou are too old to learn. I know a man alled Jack who started to study medicine in a collegewhen he was 70 years old. He studied there for 6 years and now he works in a hospital. Anotherman called Barry beganwriting at the age of 71. And now he is a goodwriter. Some people maythink keeping learning is easy only for young people. In fact, everyone canmake it.
It would be a good start to follow the old lady's example. I hope all the people will stay
young and healthy.
