Everyone is afraid of old age but forgets that old age has its own positive values, only then can people fully feel its meaning.
The beginning of a new journey
Old age is the beginning of a “golden age” in human life, after the rich experiences of life.
Sociologist Maggie Kuhn said: “Old age is not only sickness and disease, it is also strength and survival, overcoming all vicissitudes and disappointments, trials and illnesses.”
In old age, you have to face illness, decline in health and many other complications of life. Old age will also bring certain changes in the body but that is not cause for concern. The human body’s susceptibility to disease also depends on the body’s immunity and endurance. People get sick at any age, but with good health and a healthy lifestyle, people can still avoid diseases. Many old people live healthier lives than young people and even healthier than young people who live unscientifically. Exercising properly, eating well, and drinking enough water will help your body recover from the changes.
Getting old doesn’t mean slowing down
Older people are often advised to get more rest and slow down. However, a person’s physical capacity is not entirely dependent on age, but also on one’s willpower. Don’t force yourself to sit still just because you’ve passed a certain age.
Age shouldn’t be a shackle, it gives you the experience to keep moving forward. A study called the Longevity Project found that people who work hard at what they love live the longest.
Perfect time to start a new habit
Writer Groucho Marx (USA) said: “Age is not a special topic, because anyone can grow old. All you have to do is live to the fullest in your years of life. there”.
In fact, it’s never too late to learn something new. In old age – the age when many people feel like they have time to themselves – it’s a good idea to sit back and think about all the things you’ve missed during the previous years. Maybe they used to ignore their own passions, so old age is the right time to do it.
If you want, you can take an online course or participate in social activities, make friends… You can take dance classes, bike rides… with people of similar ages. copper. Studies show that, in old age, people tend to be more attuned.
Age is no longer afraid
American poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow exalted the value of old age by saying: “Only when the sun goes down will the sky be full of stars. That’s what you can’t see during the day”.
Old age doesn’t mean you need to give up your activity just because some other older person can’t pursue it. Just stand up and be an example. Don’t be afraid to challenge your body with fun things. Remember, if your mind accepts the challenge, nothing can defeat you.
There are many secrets
Old age has its own perks. First, you’re good at what you’ve been doing for years. This is called crystallized intelligence and can work even if you’re 65-70.
Old age makes you easier
Not every age is stressful and difficult. According to the American Psychological Association’s annual stress report, older adults feel less stressed than younger adults, even though money or health problems persist.
In fact, you’ll likely become a lot more agreeable as you age, at least past 60. You’re also likely to be happier and less prone to anger. Scientists haven’t figured out the exact reason for this yet, but they’re leaning towards the theory that older people may have better control over their emotions and focus more on the positive values of life.
