Aging is hard work, physically we change, such as our eyesight, hearing, or cognition. But, our Golden Years can be wonderful, especially if you have the right attitude.
Check yourself: do you tend to be pessimistic, see the glass as half-empty, or think the worst of people and situations? Are you too self-critical? If you aren’t normally optimistic and want to be, change will happen, it takes time to keep the negative talk at bay and replace it with positivity.
- Surround yourself with positive people. Watching how others approach life with an upbeat and productive attitude will help.
- Be open to humor. Laugh, smile, and feel the joy that comes with giggling. It’s been said that “laughing is the best medicine,” and it’s true!
- Turn “I can’t” into “I can try.” Because aging is presenting new limitations on life, it’s easy to give a big sigh and be resigned to our restrictions. Instead, think of ways around your limitations-where there is a will, there is a way.
Your positive attitude can have an effect on your well-being. New friendships, less stress, improved health, and you’ll have more fun. Give it a try! At Country Meadows Village, we want you HAPPY! Together, let’s laugh and smile while making your Golden Years shine with positivity.Leave a reply
