PATHS TO POSITIVE AGING
With the growing population of older adults who enjoy increasing social, political and economic power, the willingness to accept the maladies of aging has diminished and a more positive approach to aging is invited. Research findings suggest that efforts to enhance physical health, emotional well-being, active engagement in life or meaningful relationships all work in a mutually reinforcing manner, with substantial positive consequences for the aging population.
