What can an adult who has stepped over fifty years of age afford, and what is definitely not worth doing?
At a particular moment in life, there are things to which you need to say: “Goodbye!” Just allowing yourself to be yourself, not looking around and not thinking how to please others.
No need to go on diets
Stop experimenting with the body. Weight-loss diets are not long-term and generally do not work well. Better to lead a healthy lifestyle, eat right. And to resort to diets only in the case prescribed by the doctor when a health condition causes it.
Stop panicking at the sight of gray hair
This does not mean that you need to give up hair dyeing. On the contrary, choosing a color that will mask the overgrown roots for as long as possible is necessary.
We are talking about matters not urgent but so desirable. Someone has wanted to learn to dance, roller-skate, sing or paint all their lives. But since these things are not of prime importance and time has always been short, they have never been taken up. Now it’s time to make your dreams come true.
Stop being ashamed of life mistakes
Someone at one time left the institute, someone did not connect their lives with that, and as a result – a divorce, someone could not make a career, having worked all their life as a foreman. Well, life did not become colorless from this. Ups and downs are common in any life path. It’s only a matter of personal attitude to the situation.
No need to live only for the sake of children and grandchildren
It is a great happiness to be a happy parent, grandmother, or grandfather. But you shouldn’t “choke” your loved ones with your love. You can allow children and grandchildren to show care and love for older relatives on their own – this will give new pleasant sensations.
No need to be satisfied with what has already been achieved
Brain activity is constantly in need of work. This facilitates the creation of neural connections. To not lose the ability to quickly “digest” information and make decisions, you have to keep your brain in good shape: crossword puzzles, new languages, reading books are obligatory companions of an adult.
Stop pleasing others
Behavior and life experience after fifty is enough not to look ridiculous and ridiculous. And what others think is their own business.
Pity, in principle, is not the most pleasant feeling. Looking miserable and unhappy is a bad idea. Besides, constantly being in a minor mood is unhealthy.
A positive attitude is a key to well-being and the attitude of others.
Don’t be discouraged looking for a relationship
You can find a soul mate, a person who can understand and appreciate the inner world at absolutely any age. It’s never too late to get acquainted, communicate, meet and have fun.
Stop painting castles in the air
It’s just that it’s time to look at things and stop making excessive demands on yourself. If the dream to build a three-story house or open a chain of stores fails, you need to find a compromise solution. For example, it will be limited to two floors or several retail outlets.
