Aging is a state of mind, body, and spirit that does not always keep pace with chronological age.
Aging, or the experience of growing older, is a universal experience that begins when you are born and is completed at death. Aging is a state of mind, body, and spirit that does not always keep pace with chronological age. Your attitude and how well you face the normal changes, challenges and opportunities that arise in life is the best indicator of age. All of the changes that take place will not be positive. However, if you are prepared to meet these changes, you will increase your chances of aging well.
Accept the process of aging.
Make the most out of what life has to offer. Accept the fact that you will age and embrace the sense of freedom and comfort that everyone should feel in later years.
Guard Your Health.
Be aware of the normal changes associated with age. In order to distinguish between normal changes and disease, have regular check-ups. Your physical and mental health are your most important possessions. Do not dwell on aches and pains.
A sensible diet is the cornerstone of prevention and an important means of maintaining good health in later years. Avoid overeating. Limit saturated fats to less than 10 percent of total calories. Include plenty of fluids, fiber, vitamins and minerals in your daily diet.
Engage in Regular Exercise.
Barring any health reasons, include exercise in your daily activities. Be sure to consult your healthcare provider before beginning any new exercise program. Join an exercise class designed for your age. Or, "walk for the health of it." Walking, no matter the pace, is one of the best ways to achieve physical fitness and burn off excess calories. When you walk, every part of your body is used, from your head to your toes. Walking results in healthier hearts and lungs.
Learn to Use Your Resources.
Use your resources to cope with the changes and losses experienced with age. Those who learn to handle grief, loss, and so forth, can escape the depression that often leads to an inability to cope with losses.
Keep Your Options Open.
Explore new ways to do things. Discover new experiences, new sights, sounds and scenes. Take time to smell the roses.
Develop Outside Interests.
Develop interests, such as hobbies and crafts, and get involved with groups with shared interests. Seek rewarding projects, both with a group and alone.
Establish Warm Relationships.
Improve your present friendships and family ties. Make new friends, and don't limit yourself to your own age group. Being with young people can help you feel young.
