Common changes in elderly people.

Yup it’s that time of year...

If you’re elderly:
1. Simplify your life.
The later years are a great time to clarify what’s truly important.
It’s ok to let go of possessions, tasks, and even relationships that no longer bring you joy and meaning.
If you have the means, hire help! Get a trainer to help you move safely and regularly, a meal service to ensure your nutrition needs are being met, or a local youth to take care of minor house repairs and chores you no longer want to do.
This allows you to spend more time on the things you enjoy, hopefully with the people you really love spending time with.
2. Join a community.
Social interactions and good relationships give us purpose, joy, and connection. Connection with others is also linked to better physiological health.
Find like-minded people to connect with regularly, be it with classmates from a course you take, family, or just your neighbors down the street or down the hall.
And don’t be afraid to connect with the younger generation! If you’re not a grandparent by blood, you might be able to volunteer as one!
3. Embrace change.
Change is a constant.
Rather than resist it, learn to embrace it. Support whatever changes arise with compassion, openness, and resilience.
Many people find that developing a spiritual practice is nurturing during times of intense change.
This practice can be anything that supports you and brings you peace, whether it’s a daily walk in nature, regular time with a loved one to talk out hopes and fears, or a mindfulness practice like meditation or deep breathing.
4. Emphasize joy and meaning.
Do stuff you like!
Find ways to incorporate pleasure into your daily life.
Choose foods that you love and can savor. Get a massage or enjoy a special spa treatment. Read books that spark your curiosity and fill your heart with joy. Do something you’ve never tried but you’ve always wanted to do. Appreciate the beauty around you, whether it’s the light in a child’s face or the bright colors of your flower garden.
5. Give back
One of the best ways to feel good is to give to others.
As an older individual, you have a lifetime of perspective and wisdom that you can share
