Aging is not for the faint of heart. Ailments, losing loved ones and experiencing general aches and pains make getting older a challenge. Many people struggle to remain optimistic as they age, but it is possible to find joy and contentment at each stage of life. Here are some things that happy seniors swear by:
1. Exercise – the ultimate mood booster!
2. Maintain close connections to friends and family – ward off poor health and depression!
3. Volunteer – get a new sense of purpose!
4. Relax, actively practicing self-care – you worked hard, you deserve it!
5. Practice life-long learning – get a renewed zest for life!
