Don’t get caught feeling and acting old! Spend time with children! Volunteer at a daycare or a church nursery where you can feel useful and engage in activities to keep you energized. Keep in touch often with your grandkids and have them visit often. Children will make you feel young and joyful again!
Developing good coping skills can improve the aging process. Finding the silver-lining around the clouds in your life has been associated with living longer. If you are not naturally an optimist, it’s never too late to change. By focusing on the positive in your life, you can be positive you will age better.
Take every opportunity that you have to tell the people that you love that you love them. You do not want to have any regrets on your deathbed about not telling a certain person that you loved them when you had the chance. Let them all know you care while you can.
