Laughter keeps me young

By 2. June 2022No Comments

“Enjoying everyday life every day”.


We asked, you answered.

How would you describe yourself?

59 early childhood teacher love to bike and have feet in sand near ocean

Imagine you are 72, 80 or even 99 years old: How and with whom do you live together?

Husband if still alive; WG with friends or multigenerational WG

Who are the most important people in your life and how do you spend time with them?

My family and friends.

Get togethers in yard, barbecue or Biergarten.

What is your sex and love life like in the future?


How do you manage to stay mentally and physically fit?

Working with children keeps me young! Children are honest and have great perspectives on how the world works

How do you afford everyday life in the future?

Hopefully with adequate retirement and savings / rent out house

In the future, what do you get up for in the morning?

To do blessings in lives of others, family and friends

If you had to tell a young friend about all the things you’ve done right while ageing and would thus recommend to them… What would they be?

Enjoying everyday life every day; sharing time with family and friends; laughter as much as possible
