Let’s face it, if it was possible to live to be a Century old and still be in good shape then you would, wouldn’t you?
Well, what if there was a way to increase your chances of receiving that coveted letter from the Queen or watching your grandchildren’s children appear on the Golden Anniversary of the X Factor?
Surprisingly it doesn’t involve any strange potions or weird and wacky diets; instead the secret ingredient to living a long and fulfilled life is living for today and not denying yourself anything. Within reason of course!
When people say it is a rich man’s world, it is really only the rich trying to keep the wealth for themselves. Life is for the taking and when you get want you want, you are happy as after all, a happier you could mean a longer living you.
But what if you have always wanted to travel the world or ride across America on a motorbike and you just don’t have the money? Then why not take out a loan; it’s as simple as that. It’s not like it used to be, when borrowing money from a bank or company was seen as taboo. With reasonable interest rates it is now a viable option to live the life you deserve.
Now to reach that ripe old age of triple figures takes a lot of enjoyment, happiness and a willingness to embrace all that life offers you, but if you are not quite sure what slices of life to feast on, let’s have a look at some of the most common ones.
A Room with many Views
We have all heard of the expression home is where the heart is and there’s nothing more comforting to the heart than enjoying what’s on view on all four walls or outside. But whether it’s an orange wall with hanging jewelled mirrors to remind you of happy times in Morocco or rolling green hills scattered with woolly shaped animals to make you feel all rustic, these views can come at a price. One way to keep your ticker as well as your pocket happy is to borrow money. However, just be careful to keep the repayments from going through the roof.
A Meaty Passport
The world is out there and it is worth exploring. A loaned amount of money, which you can get almost anywhere these days from supermarkets to your local bank will get you there faster and fill not just your passport with exotic imprints, but your mind and spirit too, thus enriching and hopefully extending your life.
Planes, Trains and Automobiles. Not many people will have their own train or plane to travel to work or go away for the weekend on, but most will have their own car. Having a luxury car to call your own and to drive is one of the seven wonders of the modern world. Nobody wants a clattering old rust bucket to sit in which chugs along at a snail’s pace. A gadget heavy silent pulling machine is what gets people out of bed in the morning and feeling life is for the taking. But alas as we all know, cars, decent cars can be out of most people’s reach. If this is what you are thinking now, then stop it! Positive thinking! It has never been easier to get financing to own the car of your dreams. Don’t worry about your credit history as there will always be somebody to help you get your delicious drive and in most instances, the decision to lend you the money is instant.
There you have it: a long life is all about being happy and it is well within your reach with a world of financial options available to you just at the touch of a button, a click of a mouse or an opening of a door. What’s more, if you do make it to 100, remember to look me up. I’ll be the one winking back at you waving my letter from the Queen!
