Some people may fear old age and the troubles and diseases that may accompany it, but given the glass half full, others consider them golden years, for many reasons, which a report published by WebMD provides as follows:
1- crystallized intelligence
One of the most important advantages of getting old is that a person is able to use what they have learned over the years. Proficiency and good use of all knowledge and experiences in human life is called crystallized intelligence, which continues to improve and develop until the person reaches the age of 65 or 70 years.
2- Kindness and good co-worker
People become more accepting with age, at least during their 60s. He is also likely to be happier and less angry. Scientists haven’t figured out exactly why this development occurred, but some theories suggest that humans at this age are able to better control their emotions and focus more on how to get the most out of life.
3- Getting along with others
By the age of 40, a person is more in tune with the feelings of others than at any other time in their life. This insight into how others think and feel can make living with family and loved ones easier and help you communicate better with co-workers, too.
4- Rise and shine
Sleep patterns change with the golden age of 60 and there is a good chance that he will wake up as early as he has wanted for years. A person gets sleepy early and wakes up early, which gives the body good benefits. One study showed that although people over 65 years of age tended to wake up during the night, most said they slept regularly at night.
5- Bye bye migraines
Once a person reaches their 70s, the migraine problem that they may have suffered so often in their youth can go away. Less than 10% of women suffer from migraines after the age of 70, compared to 5% of men.
Studies show that self-esteem rises with age, and increases with wealth, education, good health, and employment. To avoid the common problems that some people experience when they reach retirement age, experts advise looking for a new sense of purpose after retirement, with an interest in following healthy lifestyles and working until an older age in whatever field the person loves or is good at.
7- Less stress
The older generation enjoys less stress than their younger counterparts, according to an annual report on stress in the United States from the American Psychological Association. It may not apply to some due to the emergence of health or financial problems, but 9 out of 10 elderly people say they can manage it calmly and thoughtfully.
