Do you act your age? Hey, you don’t have to, especially not this week. Today is the kick-off for “Wellderly Week,” a time to celebrate seniors who are still getting out there and taking life by the horns.

Of course, if you’ve been acting your age there is no rule that says that you have to keep doing it! You can use this week as an excuse to take that Zumba class, go for a walk, launch your new business, or start volunteering. It’s never too late to do something new!

You might also look for Wellderly Week celebration events near you. Community centers often hold art classes, low-impact exercise classes, and coffee meet-ups right around this time of the year.

Of course, here at Bio-Scriptives we have one more suggestion. Pamper yourself! Get a massage. Take a nap. Or have a spa day at home. Feed your thirsty skin, or just unplug and relax. Take a moment to congratulate yourself for all the living you’ve done, all the wisdom you’ve acquired, and all of the strength that you’ve displayed.

We salute anyone who is living their life to the fullest at any age. But we are especially proud of those that reject the popular cultural notion that aging is something to fear, or an invitation to quit living.

How are you taking life by the horns? We’d love to hear all about it. Share your successes in the comments below! Who knows? You might just become an inspiration for someone else this Wellderly Week.
