How to Age Gracefully. Advice We Would Give To Our Younger Selves.

Isn’t hindsight such a beautiful thing?

This video has a simple message, allowing you to stop even just for a few minutes to put your life into perspective and don’t sweat the small stuff. The video, called “How to Age Gracefully”, was released by The CBC Radio’s Wiretap podcast and is a real tearjerker. With the intent to offer people of all ages words of wisdom to their younger counterparts.

It provides you with wisdom through all the ages, allowing people to think about the simplistic advice that only gets better at the end of the video. With our personal favourite from the 36 year old lady that imparts to her younger self “Stop caring so much about what other people think”

With the advice getting unsurprisingly wiser at the age of 91 years old “Don’t listen to other people’s advice. Nobody knows what they are doing” and “Just do your own thing- that’s the way I see it”.

So what would your advice be to your younger self?
