Aging
Aging is a natural process. The only way to reverse aging is to die, and since no one
knows when they will die, we all have attitudes regarding aging, whether good or negative. In
my situation, I have a favorable attitude about aging. This is due to the fact that it is an
inescapable part of life and one toward which I must cultivate a good attitude as it continues to
arrive day after day. I am not a pessimist, and as a consequence, I am well equipped to deal with
aging. This contributes to the development of my present optimistic attitude about aging. One
factor that contributes to my developing a good attitude regarding aging is the present objectives
I've established. These objectives provide me with a cause to believe that I am improving with
age and, as a consequence, have a good attitude about the process. This is related to the fact that
achieving the objectives I've set is conditional on aging. Consideration of my future reinforces
my good attitude about aging since it provides me with time to accomplish my ambitions.
There are individuals out there who, in their late years, have accomplished what I
suppose are their aspirations. These individuals have been my motivation for aging, as I believe
that there is still plenty one can accomplish in life, especially in their later years. Morgan
Freeman is a wonderful example of this since his acting was appreciated in his fifties. If he had a
bad attitude regarding aging in any way, he would have been unable to pursue his passion for
acting. From this example, it is evident that aging is beneficial if one has lifelong objectives that
must be accomplished in the future. With the correct objectives and ambitions, aging becomes
something that everyone values and develops a good attitude toward since it provides them with
everything they need to accomplish their goals or dreams. This justifies my assertion that I have
a favorable attitude about aging.

A good aging process is contingent on one's present objectives since they are the primary
predictor of the psychological situations in which one will find themselves as one age. It's self-
evident that every one of us had lofty ambitions when we were young. People were considering
what they wanted to do when they grew up, with the majority of us dreaming of being great
actors, while some aspired to be famous athletes, entertainers, or business people. However, over
time and in the majority of situations, we will discover that we have not reached our objectives
and will get unhappy or habituated to failure as a consequence. This demonstrates unequivocally
that pursuing lofty objectives without first considering a starting point impoverishes an
individual and may lead to a sad and gloomy state characterized by the formation of a negative
attitude about aging.
Relationships have a critical role in the aging process. However, in order for the aging
process to provide an opportunity for a stronger connection, several aspects must be addressed.
The first thing to consider is the sort of objectives we establish. Consider the circumstance when
an individual's life aim is to become one of the world's top entrepreneurs. If this is the aim, the
individual must improve relationships with their friends and other acquaintances since they are
the ones who will decide the individual's success. However, as the aging process proceeds and
this person finds themselves in a position where achieving this objective is unlikely, they tend to
get pessimistic and may end up abandoning the most satisfactory relationship they ever had.
Thus, it is apparent that the progress toward achieving one's objectives as one ages has an effect
on the connections that a person has.
One's attitude about aging has an effect on their mental health. It has been shown that
those who have a good attitude about aging see an increase in their cognitive abilities as a
consequence of aging. Individuals have shown that they can reason, think, learn, and recall a

great deal as they age, much more so if they have a favorable attitude regarding aging. However,
for people with a pessimistic attitude about aging, the opposite is true, as their brain becomes
used to disappointment and pessimism, impairing their thinking, learning, remembering, and
even reading abilities. This implies they are more susceptible to mental illness than others who
have a more positive attitude about it. The second effect that aging has on people's mental health
is that their mental strength deteriorates. As people age, specific brain cells begin to malfunction,
which has an effect on their mental health. Additionally, sensors become less capable of
detecting signals as they age. This progressively deteriorates the mental health of the elderly to
the point that they can no longer perceive their surroundings as they once could. This also adds
to people's declining mental health as they age.
I can recommend three strategies for reducing stress as we age: meditation, cognitive
puzzles, and yoga. Meditation has a calming effect on the body. Cognitive puzzles, on the other
hand, are designed to stimulate the brain (Whitmore, 2017). If the brain is engaged or made
active by these problems, it will reactivate the individual who has aged. This implies they'll
spend the majority of their time thinking about the challenge rather than on things that cause
them to worry. Finally, in the instance of yoga, it will give an outlet for these seniors' tension and
worry. This way, the individual will be free of stress, as it will be alleviated by the yoga
practices.
