“Aging well is an extraordinary process where you become the person you always should have been.” ~David Bowie
Perspective is Important
Your attitude goes a long way toward defining at what age people will perceive you. Aging well is a choice. Even if you have made poor health choices earlier in life, now is the time to change your direction. It is up to you. Your perspective, what you think will impact how you age. Because this is true, you can have a positive impact on things that are within your control. Things such as outlook, your social networks, and your sense of purpose all have a positive impact on how well you age. While you might not be able to control the aging process itself, you can control your outlook on life.
The Choice is Yours
Exercise, diet, even attitude can be as important as genetics when it comes to aging gracefully. Aging well can be as simple as adopting these (mostly) easy everyday habits. Maintain a positive attitude, it goes without saying, you are what you think when it comes to aging. Feed your body good food that fuels it, nutrition plays a major role in how your body ages. Exercise regularly, staying active is a vital part of aging well. Stay social, the truth is close connections to your family and friends help you live longer. The choice is yours, so what will you do?
