Approaching the “golden years” in your life, or aging, is not always easy.
Your health could become an issue. Your bones may cause you trouble, your hearing may decrease or you could find you have arthritis. As you age, your body changes and the person in the mirror looks different.
Likewise, you may find yourself getting a bit depressed. As you approach your mid-fifties to sixties life can begin to change a bit, both physically and mentally. It can be scary.
When changes come, how do you handle them? Would you like any help on managing aging?
There is an interesting article in Positive Psychology.com. It talks about “aging gracefully” and how your attitude can help you maneuver and live happily through the changes.
The site has a lot of good information on aging with tips on keeping it positive. It defines what is positive aging, shows theories about positive aging, and has testimonials from different people. Furthermore, there are some interesting facts about people over the age of fifty-five too.
Here is a snapshot of some strategies of positive aging:
- Move naturally – activities like gardening or walking are great
- Have a purpose – find a reason to get up in the morning
- Manage stress
- Find a group to belong to. Faith-based, knitting, bowling . . .
