15 Sep Baby Boomers and the Aging Process
We all get older. We all sustain a few wrinkles along the way and put on a little weight and generally display all the signs of getting on in life. Baby boomers are no exception but psychological articles tell us they tend to cope a little better with the ravages of time than other generations.
Men and women complain about the same thing when it comes to aging: time flies! Time certainly does march on and those who savor the best that life has to offer tend to think time whizzes by faster than others. The human frame is a miracle repair center and withstands a great deal of abuse over a lifetime of use. Eventually, however, the signs of aging and deterioration are all too evident.
As men age, they find that hair appears in ears and noses, annoying and itchy. Many tolerate the discomfort but there is no need: there are plenty of appliances on the market for removing unwanted hair, leaving the area smooth and comfortable again. Invest in a little pampering to make the aging process a little easier to put up with.
Ladies also suffer with unwanted hair as they age and sometimes find the discovery of whiskery hair on chins and beneath ears- distressing to say the least. Sensible baby boomers take a trip to the nearest beauty salon, have the hair removed and forget about it till the next time. Such things are unavoidable if you are getting older and stressing over something you can do nothing about will only make matters worse.
As joints stiffen, they can become painful and make moving around a painful process. Try some of the supplements and vitamins on the market produced to relieve sore joints and tired muscles. Some of these preparations can be expensive but the investment is well worth the results which can be significant. Try registering at the local hydra therapy spa and enjoy a little interaction with other baby boomers seeking the same treatment: visiting a spa can be a great social occasion and leaves a delightful aura of relaxation, both from the therapeutic effects of the treatment and the social atmosphere.
As baby boomers realize they are getting older, they might also notice their wardrobe is looking a little tired. Weary clothes can present a weary appearance so fling open the closet doors and take everything out, assess everything that has not been worn for a year and put it firmly into the charity bag. Treat your aging frame to some new clothes that reflect your lifestyle and make you feel good. Although the investment might seem unnecessary extravagance, remember you cannot take it with you and the money is there for your benefit, right?
The process of aging need not present a tragic phase of a baby boomer’s life: it can be a transition into a wonderful new menu of opportunities which can work for you, with the right attitude and the right social tweaking to get your smile working.
