The Older I Get The More I Realize: 9 Positive Aging Reminders

The Older I Get The More I Realize... : 9 Quotes About Positive AgingThe older I get the more I realize so many wonderfully helpful insights. In fact, I’m definitely a tribe member of an inspiring movement going on right now for Positive Aging and that’s why I created these quotes and reminders.

“The Positive Aging Movement” is when you…

  • embrace a positive mindset about growing older.
  • view your later years as offering up an enjoyable part of life.
  • are determined to live fully no matter your age –  trying to stay social and active for as long as you can.

Research states that having a positive attitude about aging can actually be good for your health!

In particular…a 2002 study by Yale University researchers reported that seniors with a positive attitude about aging wound up living 7.5 years longer than those who had a negative view on aging.

I’m 58 years young.

And I personally have positively found that life keeps getting better and better for me.

In fact, I write about how my life got better after I reached my 50’s in an article here – as well as here.
