The brain says do this but the body says no. I try to explain this using the Duracell rabbit and the batteries that operate it.  Come 50 y they replace one Duracell battery with a no name one.

I personally revel in the good health that I don't deserve and feel mentally no different from when I was 30, more astute in fact. At 71 I can still do everything that I have ever done before.

Once you realize that you are not the doer everything becomes easy, the ease of being is a joy.
