Keeping oneself psychologically well is a key to Healthy Ageing

While watching the movie Something’s Gotta Give (released in 2003, directed by Nancy Meyers) during the weekend, in which two lead characters (50+) Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton have portrayed an active and enthusiastic life and also remembering the zeal with which an Indian elderly couple were enjoying water sports activities during my recent trip to Thailand, the quote by Mark Twain that “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter” seems so true and meaningful. 

I know that in old age, social and family matters play an important role and at times create stress for elderly. However, inspite of various old age related challenges, if elderly opt to enjoy life and keep oneself psychologically well then they are surely going to move towards the state of healthy ageing.

Believe me this is not something ideal, I have seen live examples of it!

Point to reflect: In what ways one can keep oneself psychologically well?
