Go With the Flow

"Having engrossing leisure pursuits are the secret to aging well according to a recent study of more than 3,500 older Japanese people.  Those who had hobbies or interests that absorbed them were less frail and had less cognitive decline than people without those interests."  Prevention Magazine, June 2013

It is well established in many fields that having something that completely absorbs your attention is healing.  It can be meditation, hiking, walking, painting, some form of needlework -- anything you so love and can be completely engrossed by.  It is the losing track of time that seems to be the healing factor -- that one is so intently focused, that time is irrelevant.  What feeds you like that?
