WHEN DOES "YOUNG" BECOME "OLD"?
- Depends on number of calendar years that have passed.
- Depends on level of physical limitations one has.
- Depends on when you actually feel "old"
- Depends on when motor vehicle division says you cannot drive anymore.
- None of the above
The answer depends a lot on you. Increasingly we are hearing that age 60 is the new 40, or age 70 is the new 50, suggesting that the limitations on one's life that used to become apparent at age 50 are usually not an issue until you reach age 70 now. That is undoubtedly the result of a healthier lifestyle, including diet, exercise, and mental outlook. Spiritual and emotional factors also play a significant role in how "old" we feel. Physical limitations can often be overcome, and are not limited to those who are in advanced age.
There is abundant evidence that how we look at ourselves does affect how we feel. If we believe we are old, "over the hill", unattractive, or have severely limited options for the future that is likely to be true. And if we see our physical body and mental status as something we can improve or compensate for when there are limitations our outlook and ultimately experience of life is different. Do we live a life where we feel we still have some control over what happens? That is becoming an increasingly challenging question at any age. But there are ways to retain control and good health if we seek them out.
And, what they say at the DMV is based on a very limited view of your status, so that does not make you old, no matter what they have to say.
