Talk is cheap and advice is free.

Be cautious accepting either of them.

Keep it at bay for as long as you can but accept its inevitability gracefully. It's one of the strongest forces in nature that ultimately weakens you!

That is the old school advice - the main thing was to don't wear yourself out! Now all that has changed - the fear is that if you don't use it you'll lose it...don't want to be like the Tin Man!

But I definitely agree about not missing a bathroom opportunity - as my mom always said, "I don't care if you don't feel like you have to go, go anyway!".

Ride a bike! It's just as much fun at 60, as it was when you were 6!
