Here are some tips about aging gracefully and staying active later in life.
We all grow older. It’s the one thing that every human shares in common. And yet, so many of us fight this inevitability—we worry about how we’ll look, how we’ll feel, what we’ll do with our time, when we’ll die. We perceive only our youth as a time of excitement, ambition, and hope. Growing older is often seen as just an inevitably slow decline.
But it doesn’t have to be that way! After all, as you grow older, you have the added benefit of experience, wisdom, and perspective. When done with intention and grace, growing older can be a wonderful and enriching experience.
Here are just six ways you can begin to grow older gracefully starting today:
1. Figure out what you like to do.
Growing up often feels like it’s accompanied by a barrage of other people’s—your parents, your teachers, the media, your peers—opinions of who you should be and what you should do. But growing older allows you the opportunity to reassess and figure these things out for yourself. Sure, your parents or your peers might have been onto something, but make the time to sit with yourself and consider: What do I like to do for fun? What’s the mark I want to make on the world? How do I want people to remember me when I die? These are big questions with important answers—answers that only you can give. Get clear on those answers as you grow older.
