5 Ways to Adopt an Ageless Attitude
To start acting like a healthy centenarian, act on these five things:
Don’t use your age as a “cage.” Stop saying things like “at my age” or “I’m too old for that.”
Avoid “organ recitals.” This is when you catalog your aches and pains, and discuss all your health issues and diseases. Nothing is more boring!!! Plus what you pay attention to expands. Why not focus on what is working?
Decide to defy what you’ve been taught about aging. How you grow older has a lot to do with your beliefs.
Choose a couple of mentors for healthy aging. Look for individuals to hang out with who make it easy to be happy and healthy.
Create goals and dreams that pull you forward. This may be the most important of all. Create a life you love, and keep living it, regardless of the number on your driver’s license.
Remember: Gerontology is simply the study of the “pathology” of aging. You don’t have to have any pathology, because healthy aging doesn’t mean deterioration. Also, it’s a real loss if you come to the end of your life never having developed an inner sense of self, not to mention all the gifts of wit and wisdom that come with the years. Thriving with each passing year is truly an option for all of us.
