Everyone grows older and eventually dies; it’s just the natural cycle of life. However, how a person deals with aging is a whole other story and entirely up to the person. You’re brain has the power to make you feel ageless. If you have the right mindset and the right actions based on your mindset, you can age gracefully, look great, and feel strong and useful for many years.
How Can a Positive Mindset Make You Ageless?
Of course, we don’t mean that it can literally make you ageless, but it can certainly make you feel as if you are! One of the biggest complaints among those over the age of 60 is the feeling of deterioration, decline, and of feeling unwanted or not useful that so often comes along with aging. Seniors are often “invisible” and ignored.
Your mindset is a big part in how you cope with that and, also, how you can work to combat it. If you keep your mind focused on the positive things your age has brought you (like wisdom, understanding, and the ability to better help others) and work diligently to maintain good physical and mental health, you can feel like 60 is the new 40.
Ignore the Culture Surrounding You
We live in a world obsessed with youth. Every day, older people are pushed to the side in favor of the younger generations. People are seen as being in their prime when they are in their late ‘teens and early twenties. Those who are older than 30, tend to frequently lie about their age, trying to make it seem like they’re still part of the favored, younger group.
In order to get past this and actually start living with an ageless mindset, you have to accept you for who you have become. You have aged to the best state you’ve been yet. You’re wizened and seasoned. Stop denying your aging and own it. Do the work to clean and let go of the things that keep you stuck and needing to feel like something you are not. That is what will truly make you ageless.
Love Your Body and Own Your Age
The only way to ensure you keep having the ageless mindset is to continue to love your body and appreciate it for what it does for you and how far it has gotten you. Treat it right, but more importantly treat all of you right, not just the physical body. Love your mind, your heart, your soul, and your emotions. There’s no such thing as perfection for humanity; we make mistakes, learn, and grow throughout our lives. We grow as whole persons. When we are firing on one or two cylinders instead of all eight we can’t possibly have the energy and self-healing power to become ageless.
Every day that you’re alive, you learn something new and adapt to changes around you. The first step in keeping an ageless mindset is loving your body-mind-soul and taking care of it as a prized possession.
Never Say ‘Never’
The number one thing that will knock you off your track towards an ageless mindset is negativity. We psych ourselves by telling ourselves that we’re too old to do something, too set in our ways to learn something, and even that we’re simply too old to be of value.
These thoughts are toxic and highly dangerous. You are capable of doing anything you put your mind to. It may take you a little extra effort to get there, but if you make the effort, you can accomplish it.
Never listen when that voice inside your head tells you anything negative about your abilities, your worth, or your age.
How you deal with aging is entirely up to you: you can be in denial about the fact that you’re getting older by lying about your age and dying your hair, or you can embrace your age for all the wonderful things it has brought you and move forward with a clear heart, and strong mind and a positive attitude which will have you feeling ageless.
When you find the doubts showing up, or you have not taken care of your prized possession and are not functioning very well, you don’t need to give up.
