Encouraging benefits associated with growing older

.

Wisdom

Wisdom can be gained from experiences over time but is subject to chemical changes which occur as a result of the aging process as well. Despite the amount of experiences we accumulate as we grow the human species is still limited by the body chemistry. Some chemicals which are developed at stages in our lives and are the same which trigger synaptic responses. Wisdom is the ability to think and act using knowledge, experience, understanding, common sense, and insight. Wisdom has been regarded as one of four cardinal virtues; and as a virtue, it is a habit or disposition to perform the action with the highest degree of adequacy under any given circumstance. This implies a possession of knowledge or the seeking thereof to apply it to the given circumstance. This involves an understanding of people, objects, events, situations, and the willingness as well as the ability to apply perception, judgement, and action in keeping with the understanding of what is the optimal course of action. It often requires control of one's emotional reactions (the "passions") so that the universal principle of reason prevails to determine one's action. In short, wisdom is a disposition to find the truth coupled with an optimum judgement as to what actions should be taken. [More]

Brain functions

The human brain is an amazing thing. Most recent discoveries depict that the human brain continues to learn new tasks even into the senior years. The wonderful thing about the human brain is when coupled with the process of aging increments of new chemicals develop and are released into synaptic activity. Chemical changes occur over a life time and provoke opportunities for the brain to analyze new situations and circumstances in a way that resembles that of increasing wisdom. These chemical changes can also be initiated from life experiences. The combinations of inhibitors which can trigger synaptic advancements are still subject to increments associated as time and related to the aging process in humans.  [Relative info]

Defined path

The trials and errors throughout our lives seem to reveal much about who we are and others as well. They also provide relevance for adaptation into our surroundings and environment offering the potential to fit in much easier as time moves on. It is common for many people to fall into a random or floundering path absent of direction and focus. As time moves forward we are presented with those opportunities in life for adjusting our path. These adjustments might be triggered by the culmination of experiences and wisdom gained over time.  It is very common for young adults to fall into a period of indoctrination or other influence as they have less of life experiences to formulate a path. Paths for life can be created from the wisdom of others when we are attentive to pay attention. Non the less our paths are not as definitive as young adults as they are when we gain life experiences over time. Learning along the way is a level above just experiencing life. If we learn from what is observed from life experiences we eventually develop a greater knowledge base to process from. The inevitable effects are conducive for encouraging confidence for the decisions we make when moving forward. Those who are driven to be proactive in their own lives and who can implement what they have learned will benefit from the results.

.

Stability

As we become accustomed to the lives we set up for ourselves we gain what is celebrated as stability. Enjoying life with less worry, ...Stability is a condition that provokes confidence. Characteristics of stability are those associated with extreme comfort and satisfaction. [Dictionary] , [8 things]

.

Higher confidence

It is typical to experience higher levels of confidence as we go through the aging process. Despite the effects of negative attributes, such as loosing muscle, the ability to rationalize and move forward becomes easier as we get older. New paths are set into motion with higher confidence in who we are and a better understanding as to how to get there. [Dictionary]

.

Realistic outlook on life

As we move forward in life it becomes more apparent for many as to what we can expect from ourselves as well as others. Wisdom gained is often proportional to our outlook in life. The aging process involves acclimation as well as biological changes which effect our temperament and expectations for life in general. Having a realistic view of life can allow a higher degree of security in what we believe and keep us from vulnerabilities in life. [Brainy quotes] , [Realistic]

.

Moral refinement

The aging human is typically subject to continual interaction and exposure to a wide array of personalities and situations throughout our lives. This has a tendency to result in vulnerabilities to be persuaded by the influence of others in doing bad things.  As time moves forward we tend to "mellow out" a bit and develop our own sense of strengths and opinions from which refines our moral compass. Over time it becomes common for those critical opinions we have for others to dissipate only to be replaced by an increased appreciation. We tend to focus on the good and artistic values rather than negative or petty intricacies. Our levels of compassion and empathy for others surfaces more often than in previous years. [Wikipedia]

Loss of energy, libido and stamina are the symptoms that usually drive patients into the waiting rooms of anti-aging doctors. They're also the "classic" symptoms of declining hormone levels and the reason hormone-replacement therapy is the No. 1 weapon in the arsenal of prescription anti-aging medicine. Production of estrogen, progesterone and testosterone in women and testosterone in men decreases rapidly after age 35, says Nadu Tuakli, M.D., of the Anti-Aging and Longevity Institute in Baltimore. Anti-aging physician Richard Le Conde, who prescribes testosterone for his female patients, notes a dramatic improvement in their well being not seen with estrogen and progesterone alone. It definitely "produces an awakening in men," he says, but reports that most of the women for whom he adds testosterone "refuse to give it up." Though controversial and only within the reach of those willing to shell out up to $300 a month, human growth hormone (HGH) is the "best treatment we currently have for preserving vitality until the end of your normal genetic lifespan," says Le Conde, who at age 52 has been injecting himself daily with HGH for the past 5 years. The 30-gauge, one-quarter inch (6.35 millimeter) needle, he adds, is a "very low obstacle" for his patients, most of whom are over age 50 and report reduced body fat, increased muscle tone, enhanced sexual performance, elevated mood and firmer skin from HGH treatments, according to Le Conde. HGH has been approved by the FDA to treat adult human growth hormone deficiency but not as a routine anti-aging therapy. That will take years because "everyone is a candidate for HGH," says Le Conde. In the meantime, he adds, "those of us over 50 can't wait for the FDA to approve one of the safest, most effective interventions we have." What will scientific research have to say about HGH? Only time will tell -- we recommended starting your anti-aging regimen at home by living healthy in the meantime.

Yet another form of treatment intended to prolong the effects associated with aging is "Prolotherapy". Prolotherapy, also called proliferation therapy or regenerative injection therapy is a treatment of tissue with the injection of an irritant solution into a joint space, weakened ligament, or tendon insertion to relieve pain. Recipients of Prolotherapy say they wouldn't trade it for anything. [Definition] , [Doctor locator]

Rest  →  Physical, mental or spiritual calm, tranquility.

Rest and sleep are key elements associated with fighting the effects of aging. There are many ancient references attesting to the value of rest. Rest & sleep are as essential to healthy living as is a good diet.

Aging and Sleep

.

NOTE: Researchers at the University of Chicago studied volunteers who slept just four hours a night for six straight days. They found hormonal and metabolic systems in disarray. The researchers found that chronic sleep loss might both hasten the onset and increase the severity of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity and memory loss.  [Source]

   Sleep Can And Will Keep You Forever Young!

Research shows that if you sleep less than six hours a night, you are at far greater risk of having a heart attack or experiencing a stroke. [Roizen and Oz]. What's more, your mind seems to deteriorate at a faster pace. On an emotional level, a lack of sleep makes you less peaceful and more prone to anger. Sicknesses related to viral infections are also more prevalent among people lacking proper rest. Eight hours of sleep each night is important for your current physical health, as well as your mood and your. [Roizen and Oz]

Exercise  → Exercise the body and your mind will be sharper.

Regular aerobic exercise is a must-do for anyone committed to slowing the aging process. Hundreds of studies show that exercise combats the loss of stamina, muscle strength, balance and bone density that increases with age.

The Best Anti-Aging Medicine? Exercise

.

Ready to get started? The American Heart Association advises exercising for strengthening vital components of the body. They recommend 40 minutes of aerobic exercise of moderate to vigorous intensity three to four times a week to lower the risk for heart attack and stroke. Doing a single set of eight to 15 repetitions, using eight to 10 exercises, two to three times a week for a comprehensive strength-building program is also beneficial.  [Source]

Why is physical activity such a big deal?

Regular exercise and physical activity are important to the physical and mental health of almost everyone, including older adults. Being physically active can help you continue to do the things you enjoy and stay independent as you age. Regular physical activity over long periods of time can produce long-term health benefits. That's why health experts say that older adults should be active every day to maintain their health. In addition, regular exercise and physical activity can reduce the risk of developing some diseases and disabilities that develop as people grow older. In some cases, exercise is an effective treatment for many chronic conditions. For example, studies show that people with arthritis, heart disease, or diabetes benefit from regular exercise. Exercise also helps people with high blood pressure, balance problems, or difficulty walking. One of the great things about physical activity is that there are so many ways to be active. For example, you can be active in short spurts throughout the day, or you can set aside specific times of the day on specific days of the week to exercise. Many physical activities—such as brisk walking, raking leaves, or taking the stairs whenever you can—are free or low cost and do not require special equipment. You could also check out an exercise video from the library or use the fitness center at a local senior center. [Source]
