One thing that has changed over the years is the definition of old age. That is due partly to the increase in how long people live.
If you were to ask people in a variety of age groups to give you an age where old age starts you would get answers according to the age of the person answering the question.
When I was 16 I thought anyone over 25 was old! Most people under 30 think old age starts at 60. People over 60 think old age starts in your 70’s or in some cases even in your 80’s.
This makes sense because as you age you do not see yourself getting old until you start to feel old. Granted your body may not be able to do the things it once did, but that does not mean you have to quit doing the things you love altogether.
As you know here on my blog I’m a big proponent of traveling. My husband and I love to travel and we’re taking advantage of the fact that we can do that now as we have got older.
I know many people who love to golf. Golfing can be expensive, but baby boomers have more time to golf and the smart ones have the money to do it as well.
How cool would it be the golf on some of the really great golf courses around the world? (Check out how to plan your next golf vacation/holiday here)
Be Active Mentally
One of the reasons I love helping baby boomers start their own home business is because it helps them stay active mentally. You’re actually putting off old age in your mind because you are helping people make money and run a business of your own while getting paid for it.
There’s nothing wrong with doing crossword puzzles, playing on the computer, and so on. This helps you stay active mentally as well. It certainly helped my Mum after she had her stroke. It got her brain active again.
However, running an online home based business is a great way to be active mentally and develop more income so you can be active physically as well. With the way online home businesses are structured today you can work anywhere in the world where you have Internet access.
This means you can travel and have fun physically, while making money and being active mentally as well.
As more people begin to live longer into their 80s, 90s, and even into the 100’s, old age becomes even more a state of mind. You should care only to the extent that you are doing things both physically and mentally to help keep yourself young.
