Endless Love As We Age
About two years ago, I took a course on Psychology and Aging. It was a Developmental Psychology course that I dreaded. I thought that it would be depressing and all about death and dying. I was so wrong. It was about healthy living, extending one's life, and getting better coping skills.
The study of Aging now encompasses the entire Life Course. We can make healthy decisions, throughout our lives, that can make our lives better as we age. The key factors to healthy aging are a good support network, being active, and being an optimist.
