00:00 You’re listening to the live happier, longer podcast, episode 16. Welcome to the live happier, longer podcast. We’re your hosts, molly watts, and we are here to help you build the habits of the happier, longer life. Starting now.
00:28 Hello Molly. Hello Angela. How are you doing? Nice. Great Grand. Excellent to hear you first. Yeah. Mixing it up a wee bit!. Yep. So today we will be talking about thoughts and do you ever find yourself when you come upon a situation your first thought goes straight to a negative one? Yeah, definitely. I think everyone knows me and I’m sure most people have had that happen. Um, and I’m excited because our guest today, Elizabeth Salazar, as you mentioned, she does a lot with thought work and she’s going to help us identify that behavior and work on how to change that. And how you can change that negative thought. You can reframe it and make your life happier, more positive spin on a lot of situations. Exactly. And she talks a lot about in her own podcast, which is called strategic mindset. She talks about the fact that thoughts are optional and you want to choose thoughts that serve you. Right? And so we’re all about thoughts that help you live a happier, longer life. Yeah. So let’s talk to Elizabeth Salazar.
01:42 Hey, Elizabeth. Hey Elizabeth.
01:45 We are so excited to speak with you today. Thank you for taking the time.
01:49 Nice, thanks for having me.
01:50 Yeah, it’s awesome. And I, I’ve listened to your podcast here a couple of times that will actually listen to the whole thing. What am I saying? The whole darn thing was really just enthusiastic about hearing more from you on strategic mindset and that’s the name of your podcast strategic mindset with Elizabeth Salazar, that you, um, for us and what we’re talking about with our audience in terms of living happier, longer. A lot of it has to do with mindset. So talk a little bit about mindset. Just from the get go, we’re, you know, exactly what is it? Yeah. Because some, some of us feel a little bit like, hm, it sounds a little bit. I don’t know what, like woo woo, that’s it. Tell us a little bit about mindset.
02:40 Yeah, so my. Mindset can sound like something out there, right? Because when we’re in high school or college or just growing up, we never hear the term mindset. It’s not until we read books or come into an online space or start listening to podcasts and people are throwing it around and so the basic of what mindset is, it’s our thoughts about things and so the basis that all of our circumstances are neutral, so are crying baby, our grumpy husband, our car breaking down, our business making a certain amount of money, how old we are, how much we weigh and so we see the scale, like the number on the scale for example, and then we have a thought about it and that thought actually creates a feeling in our body and that feeling our body then determines how we act or don’t act and ultimately what we’re creating. So one of the questions I’d like to ask my clients is unlike is that thought creating what you want? And it’s kind of mind blowing because a lot of times we don’t even think. Especially for me, I didn’t know that I could control my thoughts, I just thought they were like, they were just a stream, like the radio being on and that’s how we thought about it and so, you know, when you’re in the shower and you’re having all these thoughts and for me it was crazy stuff like I would be repeating or thinking about an email that I just sent or a conversation or a text message and I would just keep feeling those feelings from it and it just was almost like my brain wanted to keep going over and over and over it. And so when I realized that I could actually control my thoughts, I was like, this is magical. And so that’s, that’s mindset.
04:18 Yeah. I think as well, when somebody points out to you that what is happening, you’d go, oh, okay. And it’s funny. It’s not until somebody really tells you what was going on that you go, oh yeah, that is what’s going on. So it’s, it’s, it’s something that really a lot of people can benefit from because they really don’t know what was going on in their head when it’s, as you said, it’s just like the radio is playing, so it has a nice to have that guidance to. And the fact that you can turn it off. I think that’s the power. I think there’s a lot of people that believe that their feelings come first and their thoughts come second, you know what I mean, that they are, they’re reacting to the circumstance, they feel a way about a circumstance and not necessarily understanding that the thought that they’ve had first is impacting how they’re feeling and that they can change it. You know, they just think that it’s an automatic reaction to a circumstance. I know. And you’ve had an incredible year in your business and you really attribute that to your thoughts.
05:27 I do. I mean my entire life, like I started doing thought work and it was changing my life and then I almost like stepped it up a notch and I just watched it filter into everything. And my biggest takeaway from thought work, especially in the business realm, right, is that we can, not just, not just to trump, but we can create anything we want with our thoughts. One of the coolest areas that I take it into is my marriage and I actually write like books teach us that if we want to be happily married, if we want to love our spouse more, that we need to learn to love them with their own language that we need to spend more time with them. And one of the things I’ve really been using it is to notice like what are my thoughts about my husband and how are they creating my experience with him.
06:15 Right. So an example would be he washed my bras and so you spend a lot of money on nice bras, right? And like you don’t want them to be distorted, you want them to like. And he watched them like twice. And so my thought was like, oh my gosh, this is like, why is he doing this? He’s like, this is terrible, right? Like I was angry at him, it was his fault. And I asked him about it, you know what he said? He said, well, you put them right beside the dirty clothes, why don’t you take responsibility for your clothes? And I thought, oh my gosh, you’re so right. I could just put my bras in a different spot. That way you aren’t trying to like search through them. And it was just like in that moment I was able to take back control of like, Oh, I’m actually in control of whether he washes my expensive bras or not.
07:03 Not like this isn’t his fault, this is a part of what I can control in my life. And you know, there’s just so many things like that where my brain wants to tell me it’s all his fault. Like when he wasn’t washing my laundry and I’m like, you suddenly just stopped washing my clothes. And then I asked him about it and he’s like, oh honey, I know you just bought new clothes and I wanted to make sure I wash them right. So I was going to leave it for you. And I didn’t want them to get ruined. I was like, that is so sweet because my brain has been telling me that you’re a jerk and you’re doing this to be mean or something, but it just takes that like when we see our brain, we can have such a different experience in life and when it comes to our spouses, like what’s our main objective is just to feel closer to them to feel connected and I can do that all by myself. Like I can think thoughts about him. I can think about how great he is. I can right like I can do that or I can think about like, oh, why did he take the trash out and not put a bag in? Or you can just start those crazy thoughts of things.
08:06 That whole idea. I mean that’s a lot of what we talk about is in terms of creating a more optimistic, a happier life. Right? And it really boils down to a lot of what you’re saying. It’s how you’re, your perception, your, your decisions on how you perceive things and your thoughts about them are what affect your reality. Right. I think what you’re saying is really important to you can imagine a lot of the people that we’re talking to right now are in major areas of transition, especially for empty nesters who are really having to look at their relationships now in a different way. Uh, it’s a big, it’s a big shift when you’ve spent. I’ve spent the last 20 years of my life basically raising children and now my, you know, my youngest has had headed to college and it’s putting our, you know, it’s put a whole new spin on our relationship and I can see how, you know, it’s hard. It’s easy to fall into a negative mindset about some of those, you know, habits or actions or whatever. And it takes a practice or, or a strategy just like you said, strategic mindset to make the decision to see my husband’s behaviors in a positive light.
09:22 And I think, I think that part in there to know is like, once we know that it’s all our thoughts, we get this power back to know that we’re in control because your brain’s going to do crazy things like your kids. My 15 year old, she already like, doesn’t want to come to visit me. She’s too busy, she has stuck and it’s like my brain wants me to make it mean things. She doesn’t love me. We’re never going to see her again. And I’m like, oh, that’s very dramatic mind. Right? your relationship to this changed? And your brain is like, wait a minute. We’ve been doing the same thing over and over and over. We’ve, we’ve been focused on other people. And what happens is, is that your brain almost has a transition period where you’re teaching it how to do something new and it serves our brains, right? Like when we get in the car, we can drive to the grocery store when you make our favorite recipes or at least the recipes, the same 10 ones you’ve probably been making for 20 years. Like you just do it on autopilots. And so in this breath that we’re like, oh darn. These patterns of thinking. It’s like they serve us until we’re ready to create a different result. And that’s when we have to see them and see like, oh, I’m just learning a new path to a new grocery store. Like I’m just learning. Oh. Or like when they changed the grocery store around because they think remodelings a good idea, right? Our brains are like, this is terrible. And then it learns and it steps forward.
10:43 What do you recommend? What’s the first thing you know, the first step to changing a mindset pattern. So if I’ve got these negative thoughts happening at least, well, okay, so maybe I recognize them now because we’ve had this conversation about mindset, but what do I do to stop them? Or what do I do to change it? What even though what is the first step to recognize in it.
11:04 Yeah. So the first step, how you’re going to know is you’re going to check in with your feelings and so you’re going to notice when do I feel intense emotion in my body? And a lot of people are kind of disconnected from this. Like we, we dull our sences to feeling. And part of it is, you know, you look at like, we want to feel good, just our body’s natural inclination. It’s like we don’t want to feel bad, we want to feel good. And so this is why people eat food, like overeat food, right? Like eat more than one cookie, scroll on Facebook, right? Because we’re trying to get away from the negative emotion. The emotion is really the first thing. So if you just think back to your week, and I want both of you guys to do this, like is there a time when you felt intense negative emotion?
11:51 Yes. I couldn’t think of one. She did. She had a really good week, her daughter got engaged this week. So she’s, you know, she’s been a new mindset. I’m kinna flying up here right now. I’ve got lots of good stuff there. And you. Yeah, but I have one. Yeah, I have one.
12:13 Yeah. And so that’s always going to be our, our, our, our odometer for where the thoughts are. The next step to that. Right? So I think it starts with realizing that our thoughts are optional. They aren’t true and they are false. They’re like, if you’re standing in a intersection right in a city and there’s four different corners, your current thoughts are just one perspective of what’s happening. Part of the work that I do in my own mind is I actually have conversations with myself about that, right? Like I plant. I further those seeds like, oh, all my thoughts are optional. Why am I thinking this. I’m going to stop? Right? And then sometimes I like, you know, you divert your thoughts or I go and listen to music, right? Because music is a great way to not hear your thoughts, but the first step is really realizing that your thoughts are optional and then noticing them and the way that we sometimes can best notice them is by tuning into how do we feel and the, they’re just an indication like I’m telling a story about myself, right? It’s a perspective that doesn’t feel very good and so we always have the option to just tell a different story, but the really fun part is that our brain always believes it, right? But we don’t tell ourselves a story that we don’t believe. So when you think about your negative situation, I don’t know if you want to share it, it’s something where it’s like you believe it and you could believe something else.
13:42 yes. There’s a, a negative relationship in my life that is a family member so I can’t like I’m completely disassociate or divulge, yes either one. But those interactions, I definitely see everything that comes from that person with a negative mindset first instead of try, you know what I mean? Trying to open up and that’s probably not exactly how it was meant, you know, and seeing it from a different light. But the feeling gets very, you know? Definitely there. Yeah. And it’s one of those things when you notice something again, you were chatting about this in your podcast that when you notice something it just becomes the forefront of your mind. So like that, if that as a negative thing about a person, and then it’s there and then it’s there and then it’s there and you keep seeing it and keep seeing it and it as hard to get past and all of the other things that you would not necessarily have thought very much about before. All of a sudden that all you see. So it’s a choice. I mean, that’s the whole thing. I think that’s what, what I really liked about everything that you talk about in your podcast, but this just, it’s, it’s a choice, right? I’m making the choice to think that way when I need to start thinking about it in a different way and then I’ll probably have different feelings and be, you know, so, uh,
15:03 well, and that’s probably the most powerful thing that we can share with your audience is that when they, because I’m sure everybody has an interaction like this, right? They have a family member, they come from a holiday and they have these thoughts about them. So I think the most reassuring thing to start with is just that it’s optional, right? But you can actually choose to think other thoughts about them and you know, some people, they’re going to have thoughts about me saying this right now. Right? They’re gonna. Be like, no, I’m too old. This is a pattern. This is really how they are. I’m not making this up. This is true, right? Like all of these are sure and it’s coming from a place of like, wait, if this doesn’t feel good for me to believe and what can I do instead? Right. One of the thoughts that I have that serves me very well, and again, I do a lot of game playing with my mindset, but it’s this thought right here, and I want you to try this one on molly and see how it feels with this person and what have you thought in your mind. So I want you to picture that and I want you to think they’re just doing the best they can.
16:08 Yup. Gotcha. Yes, I could. I definitely could.
16:14 But I’m not going to.
16:17 I definitely could. Lets stew on it a little more. What I like about what I think is most important about what you just said, Elizabeth. And I think that, I know this and I think it’s so fundamentally true for people to really grasp about thought work is that the thought that I’m having an is, is producing this negative feeling and that negative feeling really isn’t serving me. Well. You know, that’s the whole point. It isn’t whether it’s true or not, it isn’t really about that. Right? What’s true is that the feeling that I’m having isn’t serving me. It isn’t helping me have a happier longer life. You know what I mean? We know we have our daily action. Number five is let go and that’s sort of along those lines. It’s letting go of that negative mindset and replacing it with positive thought work or thoughts that I am just that whole idea that it’s optional and I’m in control of how I see things.
17:20 And that brings up the perfect example of that which is love. Love is what we feel in our body for other people. And I love that you mentioned on one of your podcasts about like getting out and mingling with people and interacting with them and how the older you get, the more it’s easier to just stay home and watch TV and just stay in habit and like the beautiful thing is that when you purposely choose thoughts to love people, you get to feel it in your body and so you can look out the window and you can love the kids and that are playing in the street. You can love your pictures and love your children. You can think about your spouse and like all the great things they do and you can just like feel that love in your body and it’s. It’s about them. Right. But it’s really about you and what you want to experience in this world.
18:12 Yeah. It’s like we are avid Friends watchers in this house, the TV show and one of the things was a whole situation about giving and somebody said, oh, you just give to charity or help out or whatever the situation was because it makes you feel good. And she was like, no, no, no. I’m doing it just because. Because it’s the right thing to do and it helps out. And they went around and round and round in this whole situation about doing things because it makes you feel good. And after much ado, the actually come back to, in fact, although it was a good thing and other people benefited, she did in fact feel really good about it. So. But that’s okay. You know, it’s like, what? Why would you do things that don’t make you feel good? You know, if it’s a good thing, you benefit from the good thing is surely that’s, that’s, that’s a good thing. So. Right. And ultimately, I mean take back, go back to this, this a negative thought that I was having. Ultimately it’s going to not only make me feel better and have a positive benefit for, for my life, but my actions will be different. So. Right? So therefore it will create something more positive in my family member’s life as well ultimately.
19:36 And some people don’t understand that. They don’t understand how thoughts create things and you just brought that up perfectly, molly, which is that when we think something. So I’ll give you an example. When I’m making dinner it’s usually at like 5:00 and I have a baby who’s two now and she was probably one, but I would be making dinner and you know, my husband should be home the next 15 minutes. I’ve been with the kids, um, you know, doing different things, right? So who knows what happened that day. You can think, right? Like my daughter will come up and she’ll want something she’ll want to play. She want me to hold her. She want me to nurse or for the fifth time. And so I can think about that situation, right? I’m going to show you two different examples and then how I act because of it. I can think the thoughts like she’s being such a baby, why wouldn’t she leave me alone?
20:20 I need to cook dinner. Where’s my husband? And you can just start to see the frustration. Right? And I’m sure his mom’s, we’ve all been there and so we, we go down that path of like frustrated and irritated. And then how do we feel? We feel that, I’m sure those feelings. And then how do we write, like when her husband walks in the door, do we run to greet him with love and joy and, and the same way we’re going to our kids even like maybe we’re going to yell at them or we’re going to be short or not and we’re going to probably feel crappy and like, oh, they’re just a baby versus another optional thought, which is, um, you know, she a baby so I can hold her and I can wait to make dinner or I can let her cry and I can have the thought like she’s a baby and it’s okay if she cries, like she’s not.
21:08 I don’t want her to be close to the stove while I stir things. And like she’s, she’s okay. And then when your husband walks in the door, you’re like, oh yeah, the baby’s crying because she’s a baby and I’m holding her and dinner’s not quite ready and that’s okay. And Hey, it’s so good to see you and right. And then either one of those directions then flows into the rest of the evening and how you feel and whether you withdraw from your family or whether you like step in and are more loving and more affectionate. And here, let me, let me hold you and kiss your booboo.
21:38 How do you counsel your clients, Elizabeth? As far as. I mean you, you’re making it sound like it’s easy work and it isn’t always necessarily easy, right?
21:51 Correct. It’s not easy at first. Right? And so the first thing you’re going to run into is beating yourself up that you’re like, oh, I should have seen that. I should have known better. I knew it was my thoughts, right? Because we know things logically. And so I would say when we were first getting started, the best way to do this is to get out pen and paper and just write down your thoughts. Write, especially when you’re feeling intense emotion and then just look at them. And what’s interesting is just see them as thoughts don’t like kind of have that conversation with yourself. Like, oh, and here’s the other great part is that I don’t judge any thought I have, so I’m actually very open with like, yeah, I had this thought and you know, I’ll tell my husband sometimes, and he’s like, yeah, that’s crazy. And I’m like, yeah, I know. Hey. And so I don’t believe my thoughts. I’m like, yeah, their thoughts I’m having. And so it’s just, it takes daily practice of, you know, just like cleaning the cupboards, you wouldn’t try and clean the cupboards with all the stuff inside of them.
22:49 You take the stuff out, you put your thoughts on paper, you look at them and then you put the ones you want back in the cupboard and you keep going. And so every day it’s just having a willingness to say, what am I thinking and does this, is this what I want to be thinking? And it could be about your job, it could be about your partner, it can be about your life, right? Is this what I want to be thinking about my life? And if it’s 100 percent optional, what do I want to believe instead? And that’s the part to where you get a little iffy, like some people like to swing between belief, like everything’s terrible, like I’m going to believe everything’s great and instead we actually have to step it a little bit.
23:31 So because your mind, your mind goes, no, you’re just saying that you’re not really believe it. You really kind of believed that everything stinks, but you’re trying to tell me that everything’s great and I don’t believe you.
23:43 Exactly. Exactly. And so we have to find a called bridge thoughts, right? Like we’re taking a bridge from like one negative to the positive and we’re not trying to do it by swinging to the opposite extreme, but it’s really exploring your mind. Like is there a neutral place? So if you are like, if you’re experiencing, you know, like the kids just grew up, right? Like in, you’re now in the house and you’re looking around at each other. You could be thinking like, oh my gosh, what are we supposed to do all day? Or like when we talk about. And so instead of like, you wouldn’t just say that, right? You’d have a negative judgment like you might think, my husband, such a jerk, how did I never noticed this before? And so that’s going to create a lot of negative feeling and so instead of that, you would just find a place of more neutral feeling and that might be, you know, that might be the thought, like he’s just doing the best you can or you know, we’re figuring it out and the idea is, is that you’re going to know you have a thought that you believe and that’s kind of more neutral because you’re going to feel a peace in your body. Your brain isn’t going to argue and you’re actually going to feel more peaceful in your body. And so that’s like you have to kind of test it and see what you believe.
24:56 But that’s the biggest thing. It’s not trying to take other people’s thoughts and like, oh, I’m going to believe that. Like mantras, it’s saying like, what do I actually believe about this particular thing?
25:05 Yeah. And I know from listening to your podcast, Elizabeth too, there’s something you mentioned, and I’m not going to be able to label it correctly here, but something basically like finding evidence in past behavior or past success or things of that nature to kind of reinforce what your new belief.
25:24 Yes. Yeah. Finding evidence is really, really important. So one of the most fun things we can do to start with is to say, okay, I know how to find evidence. And I test it. Like, how do I know? Well, you guys have bought vehicles before, right? When you buy the vehicle, what do you see everywhere.
25:42 The same car you just bought? Well there are lots of Kia souls on the road. I see them all the time. White ones just like mine.
25:50 I never see Kia Souls. All I see are Honda odysseys. And so same thing with naming our kids. You name your kid and then suddenly what happens. Everybody else gets them as the same name.
26:04 When you were trying to be unique and clever.
26:06 Yeah, that’s right. And so like we find the evidence by looking, we almost, we tell our brain what we’re looking for and it will go out and find it. So when we get into a negative cycle, it only makes sense that our brain is finding more negativity. It’s like, oh, you went negative, I’ll help you find it. And then it’s the same thing in, in a positive cycle, right? Like, you could just sit down and think like, okay, I’ve been thinking things about my husband and, you know, but how, how is he helping our life? Like, what is he thinking? Like how is he like, you know, what’s great here? And like personally finding it.
26:43 Right. So I, I try to look for a practical. I know, I think this, you’ve talked about this in one of your episodes, like I am not happy, like right now with where I am, I’m, I don’t feel good about my health and my fitness or my levels of fitness. But I know uh, because I did it with her, um, you know, I’ve successfully trained for and ran two half marathons so I know I can do it right. I’ve done it before and so I’m trying to like refocus my mindset in not necessarily wanting to train for a half marathon again, but the idea being, you know, I have been successful before in being more fit so I know I can do it again.
27:25 Yeah. So when you were finding evidence for those things than biggest thing is going to be to do what you said you were going to do and not set it so high and then focus on it. Right? So if you say to yourself, I’m going to drink 100 ounces of water today and then you do it and you could do it like you can be like, I’m going to do it by noon so I can just think about how I did it all day. But then the idea is that you just like, think about. You’re like, look, I said I was going to do it and I did it. And you just keep thinking. Right? So you’re creating that belief in yourself that you do what you say you’re going to do. [inaudible] and we were running a marathon. You didn’t start with that thought.
28:04 Half, half marathon. Let’s be clear, don’t want to anybody or not that crazy.
28:09 So when you started you weren’t like, I can run 13 miles on day one. You were like, I bet I can run a mile. Build your belief from there. And so the idea with any of this as you want to build belief little at a time like I know I can drink this much amount of water. I know that even if I don’t watch what I ate today, I can write it down and you, you’re so much further ahead because now you’re just looking at it and you’re like, wait a minute or I can run one mile or I can run to the end of the block or I can fast walk. Right? And so the idea is that you don’t, you can look to the past for evidence, but you can also build evidence with yourself everyday. And I think your journal is such a great evidence of that, right? Like you’re teaching people to write in it every day and then look at it and see how you are doing, what you say you’re going to do and how you are creating a healthier life and your brain’s still gonna lie to you and say it’s not working, but you’re going to know I am making a change because I didn’t use to do that.
29:09 Now I do. That’s awesome. Thank you. That’s so wonderful. Thank you for mentioning the planner too. We appreciate it. I love that you said before about writing things down and writing thoughts down. You know, one of the most powerful things that we’ve seen is that by writing things down, it’s, you know, it’s actually proven to help you change, you know, change habits and increase in. I would, I would think that in the same emphasis in terms of thought work, writing things down really, really helps a lot.
29:39 It does, it does. And, and a fun exercise to do when you’re writing things down is to think about like, where do I want to be six months from now? And just pretending like you’re there and writing as if everything were wanting to do. Right. So if you have a health goal, if you have a relationship goal, like I just want to make more friends, I want to be with people more and so you can just write down like, okay, six months from now I want to have two friends and I want to go to one social gathering every week and I want to talk on the phone to people every day and you just like picture that and you can write it out and just like as though it’s done.
30:17 Like today I just got off the phone with my friend and I feel so good and just like picturing like we just got back from breakfast and I love that I get to connect with people and feel so loved and a part of something. And you know, breakfast was kind of gross but the company was so good and no, but just pretending like you’re there feeling ahead of time and like motivating yourself. Like it’s the same thing with the body you want. Like what would you be looking at? What would you be thinking and just feeling that in the future because it will drive you every day to create that for yourself to decide like, okay, what’s it going to take to make this happen? Because I already feel how good it can feel.
30:58 That’s great. That’s really good and I think it’s super important. One of our big mantras is aging with optimism. A lot of people as they age their mindset and having that positive outlook really comes about from doing just kind of what you’re talking about, creating a habit of doing it right because it’s easy to fall into seeing your life as you get older in a state of decline. I mean heck, there’s all sorts of over the hill, all sorts of adages about life going downhill, right? About getting. You’re getting light, right? You’re getting lots of reinforcement and so it’s important to understand that even as you age you have, you know, just what. Just the things you just mentioned, you could create a more positive outlook, a better outcome for how you’re aging, just by working on your thoughts.
31:49 Yes. I think the most important thing there is the story you’re telling yourself because this is where our brains will find evidence and so if you think that after 50 it’s just downhill from there, right? Like that’s what we’re going to see. If we think that a midlife crisis is normal, that’s what we’re going to see. Idea is deciding ahead of time, what do I want to believe about this time of my life? What do I do? Like how do I want to show up? How do I want to experience the people I love and hobbies I love and you know, because you get to choose that, but most people are just running on this cycle of do the same thing everyday and I’m probably going to be doing the same thing the next day and they almost forget that it’s optional that they could at any moment, anything they wanted differently. Even if that was as simple as starting to go and play Euchre with people or just reacting socially and going to the library and meeting people like it doesn’t have to be like I moved to another country order to interact with people.
32:56 Right. We say you’re never too old. You’re never, you know, you’re never too old to have a new dream to have a new plan and just focusing on that mind work is something that I think can anybody can benefit from an even even somebody who’s 75 80, no matter how old because just like you said, if it’s just as simple reframing and going in and engaging with somebody and allowing yourself to feel all that positive coming from it.
