Key points highlighted in the article:
- Many young and middle-aged adults assume that old age is an unhappy time. This stereotype is not supported by research.
- Contrary to the stereotypes, older adults are generally happier and more mentally stable than other age groups.
- Aging brings numerous other benefits, such as choice, creativity, and personal development, that have been verified by research.
Yes, life can be more fun as we age. But, I believe the key is planning-designing a plan. Design a plan for the possibilities and opportunities. And plan for the inevitable bumps, curves, and hills along the journey.
