The deterioration and behaviors associated with or recognized as “old age” are not just result of aging process. Much of what is recognized as “old age” is learned behavior.
In our society, we don’t just let old age happen. We help it along with a mix of tradition/custom; observation/emulation and expectation/exhortation. We learn how to “get old” from influence of family members, other role models and social influences. We learn how to get old by observing and emulating behaviors, beliefs and attitudes of others because it’s accepted. We listen to exhortations of well-meaning family, friends and peers.
A diet quite different from accepted, conventional “healthy diet” is foundation of putting old on hold and it’s shored up by exercise and a mental attitude that marches to an unconventional drummer. In Put Old on Hold I discuss significance and substance of a non-traditional diet, value of exercise, and ingredients and benefits of a carefully cultivated mental attitude that puts you in charge of your aging process.
