Despite a person’s maturing cycle — escalating age, growing to adulthood, and finally ending the line of growth — one must always remember not to stop his/her development, but rather continue maintaining and keeping a variety of healthy and active adult lifestyles. Try to work on your physical, psychological, social, and spiritual development. Do not let “getting old” hinder you from doing what you want to do, but rather, keep on looking for ways on how to improve your already active adult lifestyles and ways.
To make sure that your active adult lifestyles are not set aside because of your aging body, the best way you can do is to keep a strict schedule of your activities and events. This way, you will not lose any self-pitying moments while you’re contemplating your life journey’s finale. For you to ensure that you can keep up with the times and with the on-going changes, have yourself an updated schedule and things-to-do list. You have to run your life, and for you to manage different active adult lifestyles, try setting your priorities and wants. Plot all the things you want to do and you want to accomplish; whatever it may be, do not entertain the thought that it’s too huge, impossible, or unattainable. Just jot it down and let your imagination, passion, and determination, work it out. If you’re truly decided to do it, start inquiring and scheduling your activities, do not lose track or be sidetracked.
Remember that your happiness, enjoyment, and fulfillment, depending on how you face whatever comes your way — if you take aging as something of a challenge, then face it; if you treat it as some kind of a spice, then sprinkle it; and if you see it as an opportunity to enjoy and be yourself, then seize it – no matter how you view it, what is important is how you react and meet it.
Do not also let your very active adult lifestyles and activities rule you, but the other way around – you have to learn to manage and control it well. How you handle such activities would determine how much you value life and everything encompassing it.
Don’t waste your time pondering on the “what-ifs”, you still have time so do something about it. Living healthy, lively, and active adult lifestyles would not make less of you as a person; it rather enhances you, your personality, and your outlook in life.
