What is positive ageing?

Updated: Oct 24, 2023

Positive ageing is all about strutting your way through life without unnecessary suffering and with a ludicrous amount of energy! It’s about embracing the awesome power of age and celebrating the wisdom that comes with it. No matter your age….picture yourself as a superhero of ageing, ready to conquer new adventures and make the most of every moment. We are not supposed to be bed ridden for the last years. Let’s beat the statistics and be a bunch of beautiful, passionate, energised agers!

Physical Superhero prowess First up, let’s talk physical awesomeness! Power up those muscles and get moving with fun activities that keep you smiling. Whether it’s dancing like nobody’s watching, going for a brisk walk in your favourite park, or trying out some yoga moves. Staying active is the key to feeling fantastic. Positive eating! Nourish your body from within with the power of nutrition! As we age, it’s even more crucial to fuel ourselves with wholesome, nutrient-dense foods. Embrace a colourful plate filled with fruits, veggies, whole grains, and lean proteins. These nutritional powerhouses provide essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that support overall health and vitality. Hydrate like a champ by sipping on refreshing water throughout the day. Remember, a well-nourished body is a happy body. Your ability to thrive well into you 80’s is determined by what passes your lips!

Magnificent mental ageing But hey, it’s not just about the body—it’s time to exercise that magnificent mind too! Engage in brain-boosting activities that tickle your neurons and keep your mental gears spinning. Solve puzzles, play games, or dive into a captivating book that takes you on an adventure without leaving your comfy chair. Try a new hobby or start learning more about how to excel at ageing! Keep those brain cells firing on all cylinders!

Positively ageing! Now, let’s talk about those positive vibes. Embrace your inner happiness guru and nourish your emotional well-being. Practice the art of smiling, spreading joy, and finding silver linings even on cloudy days. Surround yourself with uplifting friends, join clubs or groups that light up your spirit, and let laughter be your secret anti-aging elixir. I wrote an article about happiness, if you fancy giving it a quick read. I know life is not all ‘singing in the rain’ but the one and only thing we have 100% autonomy over is the way we think. It may not feel like it but this is where practice and support from like-minded wellness seekers comes in. We all need each other 🙂

Ageing well together Speaking of friends, let’s not forget the power of social connections! Stay connected with your tribe, old pals, new pals and anyone you may come across on your adventures. Plan fun outings, gather for a scrumptious meal, or organise a game night that brings out everyone’s competitive side. Sharing laughter, memories, and adventures is what makes life vibrant and full of zest!

Ageing with Purpose Now, it’s time to discover your purpose and unleash your passions. What gets your heart racing? Is it volunteering for a cause close to your heart, creating beautiful artwork, or mentoring others with your amazing skills? Find what sets your soul on fire and let it guide you to a life brimming with meaning and fulfilment.

So, my fellow wellness seekers, hopefully you are all fired up about jumping on the thrive train. Embrace positive ageing with open arms and a twinkle in your eye. Remember…the quality of your older years is determined by what you do now, whether you are 25 or 75. You’re never too young to make positive ageing choices and you’re never too old to make a difference.
