Why are we afraid of getting older?
There are many valid reasons to be afraid of aging. The first and probably the most important one is death. Would you be so kind to give away the most precious thing you have - your life? That is why many younger people prefer seeing the elderly as “other,” exaggerating the differences in tastes, attitudes, and worldviews. We also are afraid of becoming weak, losing our minds, having different illnesses, and many other things that can happen in old age.
However, recent research show that people with positive attitude and without fear of getting older stay healthier longer. Isn’t it fascinating? You can keep yourself healthy with the help of your mind!
