Aging.

Sometimes we attribute the differences to health, for example, or financial stability. However, there is often a detail that we overlook, and that is that getting older or getting old are different things. It doesn't seem that the real answer lies in health or economic status. No doubt it helps, but many people with both of these facets of their lives in good shape seem to lead pretty miserable lives compared to others who face significant challenges in both aspects. People who age with a youthful spirit do not feel old. On the contrary. Many of them complain about having to share activities, customs and habits of old people. This, apart from the smile it may raise, is a reality that completely changes the way of understanding aging.

The truth is that people do not change so much as they get older. What does happen is that, perhaps, we get closer to our true selves. Perhaps there is no longer so much energy to hide our true selves. In many cases, people who grow old, victims of their own bad moods, lack of empathy, full of resentment and frustrations, are nothing more than a reflection of how they have lived their lives. Probably in many cases they were already like that before they got older. It is just that it is becoming increasingly difficult to hide the true nature and it is reflected in all aspects of our lives. There are some key patterns and qualities that people who grow old feeling young seem to share. In these patterns seems to lie the real difference between growing old and growing old.

 In the same vein, keeping our passion, our eyes on the horizon, seems to be a key point. Opt for activities that motivate us, that make us get excited. Be creative, help in common causes, acquire commitments and complete a daily agenda. Maintain and build healthy relationships around us. Family is important, yes, but building lasting friendships is a guarantee of future emotional well-being. Altruism is also a common quality shared by seniors who age well. Helping others brings one a sense of meaning, that your life has value because you are useful to someone. Being able to help others has a very positive impact on self-esteem. Our young elders also share a taste for fun.

 In fact, having fun is ageless and laughter is a source of vitality. A cultivated sense of humor is a fantastic exercise for our brain. Beliefs, personal values and spiritual practices. Absolutely personal concepts that are the reflection of our values, each one is the one that best fits himself. This seems to be another inexhaustible source of rejuvenation. These qualities that seem to make a big difference between getting old and getting old are not something that one develops at a certain age to age better. We don't realize it, but we all get older every day. How we are living our lives right now, how we feel today in our own skin is what is going to decide in some way if we are going to enjoy our old age.

 In conclusion, aging is a gradual and continuous process of natural change that begins in early adulthood. During early middle age many body functions begin to gradually decline. There is no set age that makes an individual an old or elderly person. Traditionally, age 65 is considered the beginning of old age. People often wonder whether what they are experiencing as they age is normal or not. Although people age differently, some changes are the result of internal processes, i.e., age itself. Thus, these changes, although undesirable, are considered normal and are sometimes referred to as natural aging.

Do you consider yourself to be aging?

Everybody will get old, and we can experience aging as we grow older, it's a normal cycle of life. The sad part is that, there are things that we will not be able to do because as we age the human strength is also decreasing.

it is true that as the human being gets older he loses strength, and without a doubt he will not be able to do the same activities he did when he was young. that is why we have to take advantage and enjoy every minute of our life.
