Life isn’t always about adventure and excitement. Sometimes, it’s the simple pleasures that make life enjoyable. Author Mary Walden’s new book contains a variety of simple activities and comforts that add zest to daily living for senior citizens. Although they are designed for seniors, their families and caregivers, the activities in this handy resource can be geared to people at all stages of life or health.
“Live Well and Long: Simple Comforts for Senior Life” offers suggestions for activities as well as how to plan and record them so seniors have something to look forward to each day. One simple suggestion is to make sure seniors have access to a window, where they can watch the world go by from the comfort of a comfortable chair or bed, keeping connected to the world outside and viewing the world’s natural wonders.
The book includes activities that highlight nature, such as cut flowers, exploring or tending a garden (or even watching a garden tour DVD) and enjoying sunlight, even if it’s from the comfort of a patch of shade. Walden also touches on the emotional side of life, presenting activities based on family, having choices, being treated with respect and sharing laughter. Although not intended as medical advice, the book includes suggestions such as keeping fresh water handy, going for walks, and savoring a refreshing nap when necessary.
Author Mary Walden notes on her website that she developed this collection of practical activities and attitude outlooks to help her own mother as she aged. Above all, Walden hopes to guide seniors to enjoy life. As she writes in the book’s introduction, “Each new day is truly a gift from God, so celebrate life with simple comforts!”
