New Year Transformation: Ways To Reinvent Yourself

“I don’t believe in age. I believe in energy. Don’t let age dictate what you can and cannot do.”

Subatra Suppiah

“I don’t believe in age. I believe in energy. Don’t let age dictate what you can and cannot do.”

– Tao Porchon-Lynch, 100-year-old Yoga Teacher

French-Indian Tao Porchon-Lynch, who just turned 100 in August 2018, is the world’s oldest yoga teacher. She teaches up to eight classes a week in New York and leads programmes across the globe. She’s also an author and competitive dancer. An epitome of graceful ageing, she is living proof that when you put your mind to it, anything is possible at any age.

And so, with the New Year around the corner, it brings with it new possibilities. But how many times have you made countless New Year resolutions only to put them on the back burner? Hands up if your answer is too many. If you’re serious about making a change, go ahead and dream big but start small. Stick to a few things close to your heart where you really want to see a breakthrough. With 12 months to work on it, chances are you’ll see a new you before the year is through. Here are eight areas many older adults struggle with or have been dying to do. Even if you manage just three, it’s still an achievement worth your salt.

1 A Fitter You

If you’ve always struggled with picking up an exercise, now is the time to start. And with so many free classes available these days, there’s bound to be one that catches your fancy. If working up a sweat is not your cup of tea, you can try a less vigorous activity such as yoga or pilates. Look out for free classes at your neighbourhood mall or parks conducted by the Health Promotion Board. Joining an exercise class has never been this easy in Singapore, so bring out your workout gear and get moving!
