7 Most Powerful Affirmations For Seniors To Stay Happy
This new year you will have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain just by following the easy routine of repeating affirmations for seniors.
To give you a hint about the expansive benefits of affirmations – studies conducted by Yale show that thinking positively extends lifespan by more than 7.5 years and another study found that those who have created positive belief systems around aging are less likely to develop dementia.
We need to re-examine the fear, unease, angst, and dismay attached to aging. We need to learn from Chinese, Native Americans, and other cultures that treat the elderly with dignity and respect.
We need to find ways to celebrate aging as any other stage of life. So here are affirmations for seniors to move forward on the path of changing the narrative from a negative to a positive one-
“I have something valuable to share with the world.”
Different people have different perceptions of aging. Some might say that they are excited and ready to embrace aging while others might feel anxious, scared, and resistant.
Seniors who have a negative perception of aging cannot be blamed because we live in a society that adds fuel to this perception.
But the good news is you can change this negative talk within you and learn to embrace this stage of life.
No matter which stage of life you are in you can repeat- “I have something valuable to share with the world.”
“I am worthy of love and respect.”
Aging doesn’t have to be a negative experience, aging isn’t a problem (it is an opportunity to experience life differently.) Be ready to harness the fruit of love and respect because you deserve it no lesser than anyone else.
Repeat this affirmation- I am worthy of love and respect.
“Aging equals expansion for me.”
Modern society has dysfunctional ideas about aging due to which we are unable to harness the offerings the elderly can provide.
Your mind creates your reality so you might as well think that- aging equals expansion, aging equals growth, againg equals amplification. Repeat this affirmation-
“I can live my life to its fullest no matter what stage of life I am in”.
“I am ready to embrace the new me.”
Leave behind the stereotypes and work on creating healthy and affirmative conceptions around aging. Be willing to watch the process of aging without judgment or fear. Be willing to embrace the new you!
“It’s okay for me to slow down and it’s okay to ask for help.”
You don’t have to be productive all the time and stress yourself out. It is okay for you to slow down and enjoy life. It is okay to seek help from your family members, community members, and health professionals when you need it.
“I embrace every shape and form my body takes.”
We crown people who try to prove that they could “stay young forever” as champions of aging! Be it anti-aging creams or botox, we try almost anything that comes our way to prevent aging.
Botox industry booming all around the world and it seems like the capitalist society knows well how to exploit the fear of aging.
(Botox injections are used primarily to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.) But it doesn’t have to be like that. Ask yourself- How can I spread the positive message in society. Can I accept myself just the way I am?
“I am thriving financially and emotionally with age.”
Old age doesn’t have to make you feel that you are a burden be it financially, emotionally, or in any other way. Repeat this affirmation- “I am thriving financially and emotionally as I age.”
Just because people around you hold a view that aging equals diminishing, doesn’t mean you have to agree and feel diminished. You are free to create your reality, you are free to create your own path.
