• I just turned 60 last week, so I can tell you that age is just a number…until you feel it.

    I have been living with a chronic illness for the past 17 years. At that time, I was 43 and the doctor told me that I had a spine of a 70 year old woman.

    I had the face and body of a 30 something woman, but my body was acting like a grandmother with back problems. I also was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and Psoriatic Arthritis.

    How depressing. I chose to fight it with every weapon that was given to me. Diet, exercise and medications.

    The medications took their toll, and I found my way to CBD oil and that helped, yet here I am, a 60 year old that probably has the emotional and mental state of a 40 year old. I am fatigued all the time and can only stand for small amounts of time. When I go for walks, I am in intense pain by the time I get back home.

    I am not old, I am dealing with a chronic, debilitating illness. I still work part time, I have a house that I keep maintained, and I have a social life.

    The reason I answered with, ‘age is just a number’, is because when I was in my 40’s, I was on so many medications, that it made me feel old and awful. Today, I am taking natural and organic treatments, and I feel younger than I did when I was 45.

    Yet, I still have excruciating lower spine and upper neck pain. So when you see someone who appears to look too young to be parking in a handicap spot, think again. Some days, I can barely get through it, and other days I feel quite normal.

    And be grateful that you don’t need that parking spot.

    I am 63 and I am not elderly.

    I am getting older and I feel a lot different in the mornings. Once I am up and get going I feel great!

    I have been around nursing homes all of my life. I’ve known many people between ages 95 and 103.

    They were elderly, up to that age is still just aging!

    For me, not in the least. This is me in 2011 at 60 years old:

    ….and me at 65 and 70, climbing antenna towers…

    You be the judge.

    As Dirty Harry said, “A man’s got to know his limitations…”, and as I approach 72, I can feel those limitations setting in a little bit now. I still climb radio towers, but to me, I find my strength to hoist heavy antennas and hardware beginning to wane. It’s part of aging. I don’t fight it. Rather, I find another way to accomplish the task. But I’m definitely NOT my father, nor my grandfather. There’s no way they would ever have been able to keep up with me at a similar age . Unlike them, I’ve shunned tobacco, and alcohol, and have taken care of my body throughout the decades, and believe it has rewarded me back. I often find myself a hundred fifty feet up across from a kid half my age. I can see an end to my climbing days, but it certainly won’t be for a number of years. I mean, why stop? I love the wind in my face, and the unparalleled from up there. The day I stop climbing is the day I’ll consider myself “elderly”.

    I loved what you wrote .I have been saying That I am in the last quarter but you have said it a better way . Thankyou I’m 65 and also in a car : update June 2022 : Oh my gosh I’m flattered and humble at so many ,Thankyou for taking time or if you couldn’t avoid me I’m sorry 😁. 🌷I look quite suspicious in this photo ,serious even . Anyway still embrace the 60’s while you can 🥰

    Not any more. When people die at 60, most adults are shocked. It seems much too young.

    Think about 60 as the start of your third stage of life. Stage 1 = age 1 to 30. Stage 2= age 30 to 60. Stage 3= age 60 to 90. Years over 90 are (of course!) an expected bonus!

    At the risk of sounding like a cliche, your health, your socio-economic status, and your level of activity determine much about how you will feel at 60.

    I am 63 and feel like I’m in the middle years of life. But my father died at 62. He acted old. He thought old. He got old.

    Poverty always has a hand in aging, especially in cities. Other things that impact how you will feel at 60 are: cigarette smoking, doing drugs, obesity, abusing alcohol, abusing medications and being on many different prescription medicines. Everyone I know who can check one or more of these items off, looks and acts much older than they are, regardless of wealth or lack thereof.

    Grandma knows best. The solution to not feeling like an elderly person at 60 is:

    • Fresh air and sunshine. Be outside everyday.
    • Exercise. Just keep moving. Everyday.
    • Clean eating. Skip the junk and fast food.
    • Get 8 hrs of sleep a night.
    • Focus on your happiness. This starts with gratitude.
    • Try to solve medical issues naturally, if at all possible.
    • Don’t smoke. Don’t drink. Don’t do drugs.

    Enjoy that third third of life! I know I am 👍🏻

    60 is still a baby. I am 74 and consider that I am just entering Middle Age. Of course, my mental age is stuck at 16!

    I am 76. You are a baby.

    I wish I was 60.

    Oh to be a young 60 year old again? To be 60 is nowhere close to being “elderly”. Although I’m not sure what “elderly” means anymore. I suppose it more applies to a physical appearance….. bent up, stiff, wrinkled. Well, you can be like this at almost any age. OK, you’re more likely to be “elderly” at 70+. But, not necessarily!

    Others would describe me as being in complete denial about aging. Maybe they’re correct. I am a smidgeon off 72 and I feel and look better than at any other time in my life.

    There are just two things I loath about the aging process : wrinkled skin and the probability that there are fewer years ahead of me. I say “probability” because I’m aiming to prove this probability thesis wrong. I’m aiming to be the first “immortal” human being. After all “immortality” does exist in the natural world.

    Well, even if I don’t achieve immortality, I certainly want to be the 1st 300 year old person …… or, at least one of them, on this planet.

    It seems to me that many people die prematurely, because they either give up on life and/or have no inclination to continue living.

    I have never loved life as much as I do now. I’m in my best health. And, it’s taken this long to get my body into the best shape ever.

    Further, the really fun thing about living longer is you learn things you’d never have known had you died earlier…….sometimes quite subtle things such as how to be more sensitive towards others.

    So, just as you can improve your body, you can improve your personality. You feel wiser. And it’s a rather wondrous feeling.

    Yup! I’m committed to aging for ever. Aging that embraces learning and physical improvement is really where it’s at.

    Those who are not so lucky as me, who’ve become infirm through no fault of their own and…

    Yes. I get told this all the time as I approach my 60th next week. People believe as they wish. In chronological terms they may be correct. Who cares. Really.

    Honestly it’s better than being put into some other ‘categories’. As long I choose to live my best life and do right by others,— I say — please do what’s right for you….. people can use typecast or stereotypical terms as they will always exist. It’s comfortable for people to do this as it gives them a frame of reference.

    I think the main issue is that the term ‘elderly’ has garnered a negative connotation wherein someone must live, look and behave a certain way….

    Not so. I believe that it can blunt a person’s potential to live within these societal parameters and I’m on a mission to change this.

    Healthy aging 101!

    How’s everyone doin?

    Addendum: Thanks to the folks writing me to post a clearer picture.

    If you are 30 – YES. If you are 91 like me, 60 is still a kid.

    Not by neurologists. The frontal lobes fully myelinate between 25 and 30. This probably explains why most people undergo a sea-change in maturity around 25 yo. For instance, car insurance rates lower significantly. By 25 yo, most people realize they have more in common with 40 or 50 yo adults than 18 year olds. Welcome to adulthood.

    That’s completely absurd.

    Yes at some point there’s nothing you can do, you begin to fail physically and mentally. But that’s not until your 80s. And it happens slowly.

    Unless you’ve horribly neglected yourself, or have some illness or accident or really bad genes, you should be active, vibrant and competitive well into your 70s. And I mean just with sensible eating, weight, and moderate exercise and stretching. Not being some freak about it. And get a good and regular 8 hours of sleep, don’t take naps, and be out of bed no later than 630.

    I know many people in their late 60s and early 70s who are trim, generally pain free, able to ski, play tennis, and golf if not jog and play basketball. And who work full time and enjoy travel and playing with kids and grandkids.

    If this isn’t you, and unless you suffer from something that is out of your control or already seriously damaged (like a prior heart attack), then START NOW. I’m not going to give you a course, but read up, and change your habits.

    In Well under a year you’ll be pretty much like I described. The first couple months will involve a lot of willpower and pain, as your body adjusts. But it WILL adjust and become a new you.

    Don’t wait. Start NOW. Be the 67 year old who looks 55 and does it all. Don’t be that hunched over slow moving stiff old person.

    And mental attitude has to be a part of it. Think young. Keep up with what’s going on. Learn the basics of consumer technology. Talk with younger people one to one. Read. Think and act like you’re 10 years younger. But don’t wear clothes designed for 25 year olds. Dress with a little class but keep it moderate.

    And don’t eat or drink any cleanses or potions or read all that crap about magic diets. They’re all BS. Be sensible. There are no silver bullets. But the “block and tackle” approach of adopting sensible basics WILL work.
