Shocker: What researchers say are the true keys to aging gracefully

Written by Angela Atkinson

“Aging is not lost youth but a new stage of opportunity and strength.” ~Betty Friedan

I’m not getting any younger, people, so it might not surprise you to know that I’m thinking about what it means. And being the vain creature that I am, I am focused primarily on the way it’s going to make me look and feel as a female.

See, our society tells us that without physical beauty, we’re “less than,” and yet it also tells us that physical beauty often equals youth. So us old (and almost-old) chicks? We’re at an odd impasse in our lives.

I’ve got my theories on how positive thinking and intention can help you to create the life you want – and I’m living proof that stuff works.

So you can imagine how pleased I was when I read this post over at Longevity LIVE, which outlines several basic qualities of people who age gracefully.

For the record

All of this is based on research, of course. I’m a journalist and a research geek, y’all, so you know I love me some research.

So how do researchers say you should go about aging gracefully? You’ll love it – well, I know I did, anyway. The list looks like this:

  • Be accepting.
  • Live for today.
  • Be proud of who you are and what you’ve achieved.
  • Play.
  • Be real.
  • Laugh often.
  • Find your passion.
  • Keep on loving.
  • Meditate.
  • Have gratitude.

Narcissists Fool You With False Empathy

Here’s the thing. When we say “narcissists have no empathy,” we don’t necessarily mean that they’re not capable of figuring out what you’re feeling. What we mean is that narcissists don’t FEEL empathy in the same way as most people do. They have no compassion, no remorse and they don’t feel regret – unless they regret a choice they made because it negatively affected them directly.
