We are all aging, yet most adults say they don't feel all that old. Our age is an important number, but it can also be deceiving. After the age of 40, most people say they feel younger than their age, some lie about their age, and many attempt to hide the signs of aging. The psychology of aging tries to make sense of not only how people age, but how our beliefs, behaviors, and expectations influence how well we age.
Better with Age addresses the many myths and paradoxes about aging. Often, peoples' expectations of old age do not match what is actually experienced in old age. For example, most people think of old age in terms of decline, grumpiness, aches and pains, but healthy older people report high levels of happiness, focus on positive emotions and enjoy humor. Older people may be forgetful, but selectively remember what is important. By having more experiences to draw on, wisdom and creativity can
blossom. Walking and physical exercise, not just brain training exercises, keeps our mind sharp. Old and new habits, hobbies, and friends keep us connected. Retirement is initially confusing, and sometimes avoided, but is often busy and rewarding. Balance, both physical and mental, becomes more
important in older age.
Successful aging involves leading a productive, healthy, happy life, and can start well before you reach old age. We have older role models who provide inspiring examples of what we can do in older age. This book presents the paradoxes and pleasures of old age, new research and role models of successful aging, and what we can do now to enjoy old age.
