BOOK OF THE WEEK (LIBRO DE LA SEMANA)
Unless you are Benjamin Button and growing younger, you may want to take a look at a book on aging like the one below. And it you are young, you will be amazed at how quickly the time passes.
This particular book is very readable and talks about passive and active aging. You do not want to be a passive ager, but probably will be if you don’t exercise, have a lot of interest, involved in lifelong learning and connect with people different than yourself.
