All the talk about how aging is making us forget ways to love and be loved has us feeling a little blue. And while love and romance are always nice after a hard day’s work, it’s not enough to just stay in one place. As we get older, we start to lose some of our edge. We start to question things more, which can result in loneliness and stress. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of activities for oldsters out there! Here are some activity ideas for Eros Nowers that will give you back that “something” left from your youth:
Walk It Out
If you’ve been feeling blue because you’ve been losing touch with some of your best buddy’s old ways, there’s something about a walk along the beach or the lake. You’re not even sure how you feel because everything is so silky and smooth here. It’s like you’re in a bale of summer tomatoes. You’re not sure what’s going on around you because everything is so beautiful. You want to get inside and just enjoy the experience. But first, you want to go collect your thoughts so you can get back to work.
Go to a Playground
When we’re in our 20s or 30s, we’re all different. We’re all different in how we feel. Some of us will feel old and disconnected, while other’s might feel like they’ve been waiting their whole life to get back to the light. So if you’re like many of these people, you might find that walking to the playground is your best friend. The playground is where all the oxygen is and you’reStudies have shown that walking to a playground is one of the most effective ways to open your eyes to the wonder of life.
## Take a Bunk-A-Rise
At some point in your life, you probably sat on the floor across from your partner sharing your thoughts, fantasies, and experiences. Or you might have sat in a car with your best friend, who is probably mesmerized by the view too. Either way, it’s the perfect place to start your therapy. You can sit on the floor next to your partner and talk about what’s going on in your life. Or you can sit in the tub with your best friend, who may or may not be listening in a meditative state. You can also pick up a book and relax next to your favorite blanket. Bunk-A-Rises are one of the best ways to start therapy.
## Have a lie up
1940s and 50s kids are notorious for lying, so it’s not too big of a surprise that the lie up is one of the oldest categories on therapy teams. But in a modern society where lying is a crime and there’s even legislation against it, the lie up is still an effective way to get your thoughts out of your system. It’s a great way to start therapy because you don’t have to say anything negative or judgmental about anyone in return.
## Play Games
Play games are one of the oldest forms of therapy, dating back to before the Internet even existed. But that doesn’t mean that they’ve been around forever. In fact, everything from verbal therapy to cyber therapy has been seen as “old,” so we kind of need to start challenging that myth here.
## Read Something Different
Books are magical little contraptions that can get your mind off of things and get it moving again. They can also be a fantastic way to start therapy because they’re visual, which gives you something else to focus on. You can read articles, books, and websites, which can be amazing homework help in a few hours.
## Make Your Home
Make your home a place to retreat to when you’re feeling like you need some space. Whether that’s for a little while or just a week or two, make your home the center of your therapy universe. If you have a house, make it your home. If you don’t, make your home the best environment you can for your patient.
## Take a Day Off From Work
There are advantages to taking a day off from work, such as taking a walk with a friend or having dinner with a family member. But there’s a catch. In order to take the day off, you have to be able to take care of yourself. If you’re not sure how to take care of yourself, talk to a medical doctor or mental health professional about how you’re feeling. They can probably tell you how to take care of yourself.
## Find That One Thing You Always Wanted To Do With Your Life
Most of us have at least one thing that we always want to do with our life. But what if we could all choose to do it instead? Like anything, when done right, it can become a skill that’s just what you were looking for all along. Try making one thing a priority so you can take your mind off of everything else and get your priorities in order.
At this point in our lives, we’re more likely to forget how to love and be loved than we are to forget how to live. But there’s still a lot we can do to keep living! One thing you can do is pick up a journal and write about what happened during your favorite activity. You might not be able to do everything that you used to do, but you can still enjoy some downtime and regain some of that edge you’ve been losing.
