According to research, our attitude toward aging has a lot to do with how we enjoy ourselves as we age. In other words, your mindset can make you younger.
Studies also show that an attitude toward aging may affect your cognitive function, most likely by impacting your stress levels.
Namely, aging stereotypes can harm your cognitive performance, memory, and general well-being. For example, if you perceive yourself as inactive, incapable, and unhappy, this can affect your self-esteem, happiness, and overall health.
People who have good attitudes toward aging, on the other hand, have better habits, less stress, and live longer.
So, adopting an optimistic outlook toward aging can be the first step to enjoying your mature years.
