Aging Gracefully: This Helps You Do It, No Matter Where You Are in the Life Cycle

Aging gracefully…some questions to ponder.

Aging gracefully is on the minds of many folks.

This is especially true for those of us who are Baby Boomers or beyond.

Is this something that you’re thinking about?


We each respond in our own, unique ways to the developmental changes that we encounter.  However, with such large numbers of people hitting particular milestones at the same time, there’s more and more attention being paid to the aging process.

So, that word process is important to keep in mind.

It’s so helpful to remember that aging (and aging gracefully) is something that is taking place throughout our lives. It doesn’t just start at a certain point.  That being said, the effects of aging are different, depending on where we are on our lifeline.  And, to a large degree, the effects of aging are also different, depending on the feelings, perceptions, and expectations that we bring to the process.

Aging — some questions to ponder:

So, let’s take a moment to explore those feelings. This is important because, while the changes of aging are, to a degree, inevitable, our responses are not. Indeed, how we feel shapes our experience as surely as the concrete changes do. So, take a moment to consider these questions.

I encourage you to write your answers down on a piece of paper. And try reviewing the questions over time to see what changes.

  • How do you feel about the changes that you notice in your mind and body as the years accrue?
  • What about changes in your perception of time?  Do you notice a shift, and how do you feel about it?
  • Has your aging affected how you think about your goals and aspirations?
  • Do you have a bucket list?  If so, what are the top three items on it?
  • Is your life now the way you pictured it being at this age?  Are there changes you want to make?

What do you say?

So, as you look at your responses, what surprises you? Take a moment to explore that further, because there are gifts of insight there for you.
