The subtitle of this article is ‘How a shift in mindset can reveal a major misconception about aging.’ She writes, “Old age (whenever you think it begins) is commonly seen as an inescapably depressing, downward slope toward death, accompanied by a continuous string of losses. Who wouldn’t dread it?
If you are only aware of having lost your youthful vigor and lustrous hair, you will fail to notice your newfound freedom from preoccupation with the trivial, your sense of peace with who you are, your greater comfort with the ups and downs of life.
We age every day of our lives, and how we understand that process is a matter of mindset.”
Agreed, mindset matters!
