THE 2016 A TO Z CHALLENGE: Y IS FOR..............

 WELCOME EVERYONE TO THE 25TH LETTER
OF THE A TO Z CHALLENGE 2016:
MY THEME IS HOW TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY BODY
AND MIND
 THE PAUL MCKENNA PHD WAY:

Y IS FOR
 Being young at heart gives one
a big advantage in life.
It's good for your body and mind,
It keeps at bay trouble and strife.

All that Seratonin floating around one's body,
I think of all the fun,
I've had being young at heart.
And hope there's more to come.

When my grandchildren were small,
To the park we'd go.
How I used to enjoy myself
One will never know.
 
The grandchildren and my kids,
Used to walk away.
As I would go down the slide.
Look at me above "Way Hey!"
 
Of course they are grown up now,
I haven't seen a slide in a couple of years.
I did do it in Spain.
But got told off by a policeman I fear.
 
So whatever your age,
Be young at heart,
Your body and mind will thank you,
Giving your life a good start.
 
Yvonne Lewis
