About As Young As You Feel Day
When is As Young As You Feel Day? This holiday is always celebrated on March 22
All of a sudden you wake up one day and realize you’re not a kid anymore. Lately, you’ve noticed that you’re acting more and more like your parents. You’re doing the things people your age are expected to do. But, you feel great, and certainly not as old as the age on your driver’s license. Fortunately for you, As Young As You Feel Day has arrived on the calendar, giving you the opportunity to change your attitude on life for the better…. much better.
In our early our childhood we look forward to getting older. Each year we can’t wait for the next birthday to arrive. As we progress through our teenage years, we begin to look forward to being an adult and the freedom that it brings. Reaching the legal drinking age is cause a huge celebration. Our twenties are perhaps some of the best years of our lives. We’re young, healthy, energetic, adventuresome, and enjoying all the benefits of early adulthood. Then, we reach our 29th birthday, and all of a sudden, we’re thinking “29 and holding”. It’s the age when many of us want to stay right here forever.
Time continues relentlessly, and all of a sudden we reach that age when we begin to wish we were younger for a whole bunch of reasons. The years march on and pile up. We begin to act and feel our age. We no longer seek the exciting and carefree activities and behaviors of our youth. Sometimes we act the way we do, simply because we feel “That’s the way Grandmas are supposed to act”.
Movie of the Day: “As Young as you Feel”, a 1951 comedy starring Marilyn Monroe
Age is Just a Number. How Old do You Feel?
Age is just a number, nothing more. Being a Centenarian is about chronological age. Being as young as you feel is not about these calendar benchmarks, it is a whole lot more. It’s breaking the stereotype of how a person your age is supposed to behave. Our hero and idol on this day is former President George H. Bush, who at the age of 90 years young parachuted out of an airplane. If President Bush can do that, certainly you can break the shackles of your inhibitions by going out and doing something really exciting.
With the arrival of As Young As You Feel Day, it’s time to lose your inhibitions. Anything goes. Don’t limit your behaviors to how other people think you should behave at this age in your life. As the saying goes, “Sixty is the new Forty”. That means 80 is the new 60. Today is the day to start doing the things that make you feel younger. Go out dancing. Stay out late. Do you want to go on a zip line or scuba dive? Go for it!
How to Celebrate As Young As You Feel Day
Tom and Ruth Roy, the creators of this special and fun day, got it right when they said “Now more than ever you are as young as you feel. So stop acting your chronological age and get out there and start feeling peppy.”
You can also:
- Act immature and childish on this day. It is certain to make you feel younger.
- Don’t let anyone say to you “Act your age”.
