Life begins at 60, it’s the new 40
The concept of "golden years" is now changing. 50 and above are not what they used to be — they are getting even better. Now, a new research has found that life begins at 60.
Life's activities don't end at 60 — actually at this age people are matured both physically and emotionally. As we grow older, there might be a temptation to think that our life's best effort is behind us.
According to a new report by Cigna Insurance Services (UK), life really begins at 60. Previously it was said that ''life begins at 40"; this first came from American psychologist Walter B Pitkin in 1932. Pitkin argued with some valid points and established that people could look forward to many more enjoyable, prosperous years after their 30s were over. But researchers are now saying that it is never too late to learn something new; and top of that 'knowledge and experience' have no alternate. And to develop experiences you need to become a little bit older, bolder and wiser.
Life has so much richness to offer every single day. But you need to be more careful about your physical and mental health also as it is more important than ever to keep your bones, belly, and brain in tip-top shape.
And what would be your first step? Well, it varies from person to person. Try to watch out for most common signs and symptoms you have, so you can take steps to prevent or treat them. Adapt yourself with new lifestyle and correct nutrition. Lastly, embrace your age gladly and start contributing your experiences as 'experiences never gets old'.
