Contemplating Resolutions for the New Year? Consider “Adaptability”

Long-held beliefs about getting older can have an important effect on our health and well-being as we age. If we view age as a time of wisdom, self-realization and satisfaction, we are more likely to maintain memory skills, seek preventive medical care and even recover more fully from a limited-term disability. As you’re making plans for the year ahead, adjusting your “age stereotypes” to a positive bias could be a change that helps you and those around you. For more information, I suggest you read a recent article from the New York Times called “Older People Become What They Think, Study Shows.”
