Putting your Body, Mind, and Spirit to work in unison can help you live your best life as you age. The physical, mental, and spiritual health and wellness of aging adults can play a significant role in quality of life. In a recent interview with AARP, musician Cyndi Lauper, age 64, was asked, “How do you own your age?”. In her response, she voiced her opinion that aging stereotypes should not be a factor in how we perceive ourselves. Instead, we should listen to our “inner selves”. She shared that “You don’t ever have to stop being artistic or developing who you are”, despite your age. Instead, we can view ourselves differently and create new stories of our lives. By changing our mindsets about aging, we can focus on enjoying the process of aging gracefully.
Below are some suggestions for seizing the power of Body, Mind, and Spirit.
