      Since birth we celebrate and as we grow old, the state of our health keeps changing as well.
      At various stages and age in life we celebrate specially:

      1. At 40, we celebrate Ruby Jubilee

      2. At 45, we celebrate Sapphire Jubilee

      3. At 50, we celebrate Golden Jubilee

      4. At 60, we celebrate Diamond Jubilee

      5. At 70, we celebrate Platinum Jubilee

      6. At 75, we celebrate Milestone

      However, once we attained the age of 60 and above, all Senior Citizens usually experience various health issues as itemised below. These are usually health issues experienced by most senior citizens;

      1. Food choking

      2. Neck pain

      3. Leg cramps.

      4. Tingling feet.

      The self-help tips given below may help especially senior citizens, before they can get to the doctor.


      You only need to “raise your hands”. By raising your hands above your head, the food stuck in your throat will go down by itself.

      2. NECK PAIN
      Sometimes you wake up in the mornings with pain in the neck. One reason could be the use of wrong pillow. In such a situation, you only need to lift your feet, then pull your toes and move your feet in a clockwise or counterclockwise direction.

      3. CRAMPS
      When you have cramps on your left leg, raise your right hand high, when having cramp in your right leg, raise your left hand high. You will immediately feel better.

      When the left foot is tingling, swing your right arm with all your strength, when the right foot is tingling, swing your left arm with all your strength.

      Don’t just save this information, Please share with other Senior Citizens.


      NOTE: IF YOU ARE ABOVE 55 YEARS OF AGE. (Check #3)

      In USA, immediately you turned 55 years of age, you are a senior citizen.

      Although, you would not be collecting your social security benefits until you are 62 years of age.

      The fact remains you are a senior citizen at 55

      Listen to the advice below:


      Every aged person must agree there is need for extra personal well-being.

      1. Avoid sleeping alone at night in the room if possible.

      2. Don’t ever lock yourself up alone in your room at night.

      3. Where your spouse is not available, get somebody to stay with you, especially at night.

      4. Don’t be too busy/tired to take your drug(s), especially before retiring to bed.

      5. Take to your Doctor’s directive/advice, especially on what to eat or not what to eat or do.

      6. Ageing is not a sickness, it’s a natural process.

      7. Avoid loneliness at all cost.

      8 Make yourself happy, no matter the circumstances, because life goes on with or without you.

      9. Reach out to people or places of interest, for as long as your strength could carry/allow you.

      10. Be less rigid/ conservative about issues and circumstances.

      God bless you Nature is not kind to men who did not cater for their old ages when they were young .

      Build your own house where you will live in your old age .

      Build businesses that will feed you in your old age .
      Create conveniences that will engage you in your old age .
      Build friendship and goodwill that will serve you in your old age .
      Right now , start to be relevant in club & society or Worship places and community so you could be reckoned with in your old age.

      Old age could be very lonely and agonising for men who did not plan for it.
      May you not become a liability on your children in your old age .
      May your children not wish you an early death when they can’t manage you again in your old age .
      An old age without penny in your pocket is a slow, agonising death sentence !

      Be warned now…!
      There are three categories of people you cannot do without as we are growing older , your family , people in your place of worship and childhood friends , who include your Old School mates .

      Friends , take it or leave it, at 60 and above , loneliness kills because the children you are working hard for now will go their ways to raise their own immediate families and pursue their own destinies , just as we did now . At that time it’s these people in these 3 – categories that take away loneliness and keep your company .

      Pls, out of your busy schedule , set time out to say HI ! to your real – old – age – cure – against – loneliness . In the 3- categories , the only one that knows you better and can relate with you down to heart are your childhood friends .
      So why are you feeling too big or inferior to come along ? It’s not possible we’ll all be at the same level . Some will be very rich , moderate and some poor – that is the beauty and misery of life. Some will be so educated , while some will still be Secondary school certificate holders .

      If you are up , bring others that are willing up , and if you are down , never bring those that are up down with your mouth or attitude .
      At close to 50 years and above , you have 10 to 15 years of active working life.

      Stop saying I am this, I am that . Flow into other people’s lives and let then flow into yours .

      Respect friendship and value relationship .

      Let us pass this to all friends on our contacts , Rich or Poor .

      You can’t exhibit pride. Live simple..
