“Age is a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”

Mark Twain, Writer

Getting older comes with a raft of new challenges and changes. These could include dealing with sickness, transitioning from professional life into retirement, or coping with the death of loved ones. The practice of mindfulness has been proven to offer older adults with a way of handling these changes.

Mindfulness is all about cultivating an awareness of the present moment in a calm, non-judgmental manner. In order to accept the realities of getting older with all its ups and downs, a mindfulness approach is much required. As such, it provides a much-needed counterbalance to the idea that ageing is just a period of decline and decrepitude.
