Know yourself, gain self-respect
“How you will feel in your mature years depends most of all on a healthy lifestyle,” says Marion Hart, MD, a psychoanalyst and professor of psychiatry at Cornell Medical Center in Westchester, New York. If you have developed such an attitude, you will be much easier. If not, it is necessary to reconsider a lot, “rearm”.
A positive attitude is largely determined by a good attitude toward oneself, says Dr. Hart. Know yourself who you are, what you are, what your virtues are. Make full connections with friends and relatives, especially with other women. Mature age is a time of mutual enrichment with mutual support. ”
“Surround yourself with loving, good, active people, advises Dr. Gergen. Think about what kind of people you need, and find time to communicate with them. Choose friends who would liven up your life, who want to go forward, do something, live life to the fullest, who, like you, are fascinated by the idea of personal development.
Share your joys with your family and friends, adds Dr. Gergen. Your joy, reflected by others, will increase by a hundredfold and will immeasurably enrich your life. ”
