Aging well means staying in tune with your body and your mind. Mindfulness practice is more than just self-insight; it’s proven to positively impact focus, emotional reactivity, memory, stress, rumination, and more.1 As we age, it’s important to ask ourselves questions, listen to our bodies and minds, reflect inward, and leverage self-awareness at every opportunity.
We’ve captured a series of thought-provoking questions for a self-reflection session that will help you self-assess your current state of being, and therefore aging. Learn how each set of questions and their corresponding answers can give you insight into ways to fine tune your routines, lifestyle and choices each day for optimal healthy aging. The idea is to use this guide as a jumping off point for your new mindfulness practice that is centered around your wellbeing, health, happiness, and therefore aging process. Take a regular inventory, and report back what works for you!
As you ask yourself these questions and reflect on ways that you can give your body a better fighting chance at aging gracefully, add your own personalized questions and expand on these sets. The more you ask yourself, listen to the signs and cues, investigate, and stay mindful, the better chance you have for living your healthiest, best life!
