“Anti-aging” - against or opposed to growing older!
As we reach a milestone birthday, especially one that ends in zero, emotions can range from elated excitement to utter dread.
However, no judgment should be placed on where others are in that spectrum of emotions, as we all have our own personal journey.
We should try not to judge why others feel good or bad about getting older, as the reality of aging with its many concerns and all the youthful memories behind, can be tough for us all.
We may be looking back on memories of better health, more energy, the joy of raising a family, the camaraderie of past friends, past loves, and the joys and laughter from years gone by.
However, getting older can also mean getting better. For instance, the following list gives examples of some perks that can occur from the aging process:
Many people tend to outgrow seasonal allergies such as hay fever, and food allergies as they age.
2. Self Confidence
Life experiences and the wisdom it throws us help many to have more self-confidence and less shyness as they age.
Many artists have passed who lived on “artists wages”, but over time their artist status and the monetary value of the artwork they left behind significantly appreciated.
4. Wine / Whiskey
Amongst other alcoholic beverages, the process of aging wine and whiskey can significantly produce a more mellow, smoother and richer tasting experience.
Vintage clothes, cool old cars, and decades-old furniture are often more desirable and valuable than their current retail offerings.
Yes, the above list is a minuscule example that shows that the quality, experience, and results of many things benefit with the passing of time.
However with that being said, great art, a deluxe bottle of aged wine, your great grandmother’s rocking chair, and your neighbors cool vintage 1957 Blue Chevy, all do not have to wake up and look at themselves in the mirror and experience another day in our body - anti-aging efforts, why not?
