Steps to Ageing Well

What are some ‘anti-ageing’ products?

The list below encourages a certain amount of self-indulgence and self-praise.

1.  List out the things you love and hate to do.

  • From the list, identify the things you have to do and only do those. :p

2.  List out the things that you’re good at – you might have got awards or recognition for them.

  • When you’re down, look at that list and bask in its glory!

3.  List out the people you love and those who love you.

  • When you’re down, look at that list and think about how important you are to them.

4.  Apart from those, consider these points below.

  • Look on the bright side of things. Think positive.
  • Know your assets.
  • Dress well.
  • Do the things you enjoy.
  • Do the things you love but never had time to do.
  • Spend time with people who love you.

The best anti-ageing product you can use is free, but does come at a personal cost. Money can pay for many things.  But it can’t pay for a change of mindset.

It is sometimes hard to see beyond the cons of chronological and biological ageing when you’re suffering its physical effects.  Becoming old ‘positively’ requires lots of mental sweat and blood. Some of us may even need to attend bootcamp!

But ageing well has its rewards.

You will generally make life more bearable for yourself and others.  You like yourself more.  People like you more.

Positive ageing can leave behind a great legacy.  Its value can’t be assessed in monetary terms.  Think of someone old who is vibrant, wise, loving and reveling in life; those who observe him see energy, fullness, knowledge and wisdom.  Such a person closes generational gaps and forges positive relationships with others.  Ageing this way celebrates the life that one has led and encourages others to do the same.

I think I really need to do what I preach here.
