    10 Perks of Aging

    August 30, 2017

    You often hear about all of the negative aspects of getting older, but there are also some fun things you can look forward to with each birthday. Instead of lamenting the loss of youth, get excited about each new candle you blow out every year with these 10 perks of getting older (and better).

    1. A New View on Life

    You’ve been through a lot in your younger years, and that experience gives you a new perspective on life. You feel better able to handle the challenges because you’ve already been down this path or one similar. You don’t stress out or get upset when something doesn’t go your way because you know it all works out in the end.

    2. Less Concerned about Others’ Opinions

    When you’re young, you worry about what others think of you. You consider their opinions when deciding what to wear, what to do and how to live your life. As you get older, your opinion takes precedence over others.

    3. New Priorities

    You know you don’t have an endless amount of time to live as you get older, so you often live more wisely. Your priorities are about things that matter. You don’t sweat the small stuff, but instead you focus on the big picture.

    4. The Big Picture

    You have lived long enough to know who you are. You have developed confidence because you can see the steps in life that have gotten you where you are today.

    5. More Experience

    No matter what you do, you can do it better because you’re experienced. You have more experience in your job and in life in general. You may even have become an expert in certain areas.

    6. A Risk-Taker

    Because you’ve seen the consequences of actions, you’re not afraid to try something new. You know the worst that can happen probably won’t and you’ll still be standing even if it does.

    7. More Confidence

    Since you do know who you are and you’ve seen things come and go, you have more confidence in your own abilities. You aren’t afraid to rely on yourself to get through the hard times.

    8. More Fun

    Older people generally don’t take life so seriously. They know that what seems big today will be no big deal tomorrow, so they can laugh it off. They’ve learned how to make fun out of work instead of the other way around.

    9. More Relaxed

    If you were the type of person who always had to be on the go, getting older often makes it easier to relax. You don’t live life in so many extremes. Instead, you prefer to go along on an even path with fewer worries or thrills.

    10. Enjoying the Present

    So many times, people live life focused on the future. When they get older or attain a certain goal, life will be better. As you get older, you learn that the best life is lived today. There aren’t as many tomorrows left, but instead of worrying or being saddened by that fact, you are freer to enjoy the present.
