Happlify: the best shopping guide + blog

I recently found a very inspiring video. In this short video, three unique 100-year-olds share their most valuable life lessons, as well as their regrets. This inspired me to write this article. Because everyone wants to grow old, but apparently no one wants to be old. Yet you can do a lot yourself to grow older as happily as possible, just read on.

The way we live, think and act as adults lays the foundation for the quality of our lives later in life. Happy aging starts with the habits we form today. Whether you're in your 30s or in the prime of your life, this is the perfect time to become aware of the small daily choices that have a big impact on your future self.

Embrace a positive mindset

Your attitude now sets the tone for your future. Start cultivating an optimistic outlook on life and aging. This does not mean that you lose sight of reality, but that you learn to see challenges as opportunities for growth and development. By focusing on what's going well and practicing gratitude, you strengthen a positive mindset that promotes your sense of happiness and satisfaction in the long term.

Physical activity is not only good for your body, but also for your mind. Find a sport or activity that you enjoy and integrate it into your daily routine. The point is not to exhaust yourself, but to have fun and stay active. This could be walking with friends, yoga, dancing or cycling. Whatever you choose, make sure it's something you look forward to.

Stay enterprising, for example, make sure you always drive your car without hassle. That sounds crazy, but if you let it slide now, you won't be able to get into it so easily later. Remember: a car is freedom! And leasing a car later in life is becoming increasingly possible.

Food is your fuel

What you eat affects how you feel, now and in the future. Aim for a balanced diet with lots of vegetables, fruit, whole grain products and proteins. Experiment with new recipes and make healthy eating an adventure. Good nutrition is not only important for your physical health, but also for your mental resilience.

Cherish relationships

The relationships we build and maintain are invaluable to our happiness. Invest time and energy in friendships and family ties. Be open to new connections; you never know what doors they can open. True friends enrich your life, provide support and encourage us to keep growing.

As people get older, the chance of being alone increases. Of course you never have to stay alone, there are plenty of ways to find a nice life partner again. There is 60 plus dating , which will probably be there later too ;)

Be open to change and growth

Life is a journey with constant changes and challenges. Being flexible and adaptable can help you navigate every stage of life with confidence and grace. See change as an opportunity to learn and grow, even when it feels uncomfortable. Developing resilience and openness to new experiences is crucial for a happy future.

Last but not least

Growing older happily is an art that anyone can learn. By staying positive, staying active and engaged in life, taking care of our bodies and minds, nurturing and accepting our relationships, and adapting to change, we can welcome the years ahead with open arms.
