Other thoughts on growing old
Many of these are good suggestions, but lots of folks seem to be hiding from the inevitable-namely that we are all going to die. Or better said, pass on.
Most of us have done part or all of the list for decades and advice like this seems to suggest that if we don't stay active in elder years, we're doing something wrong.
It is wise to start thinking of the spiritual journey ahead and preparing for it. Whatever your beliefs are there is a point that maybe the busyness can stop. It is not wrong to slow down and look forward to a new kind of life on a new plain of existence. Or just to sit on the deck and look back at all you have done. Maybe it is more important for people in their elder years to consider these things than to keep trudging on at work, attending meetings, and otherwise keeping on the human treadmill. We've been there, done that.
Everyone has different paths or needs.
If you have had enough years, decades of the good list mentioned, you might try spending your elder years, at least in part, exploring the spiritual realm. Suggestion: yoga, meditation, reading about eternity by enlightened authors, attending spiritual meetings, turning to a Higher Power. Talk to those with an understanding that no matter how busy this life has been or is for you, at some point it will end for you.
Blessing to all.
