Silver Linings: Making the Most of Your Golden Years

Easy Ways to Feel Good as You Get Older

Getting older is something everyone goes through, but it can bring some challenges that make us feel not so great sometimes. At MindSol Wellness Center in Sarasota, Florida, we understand that staying happy and healthy in our minds is really important, especially as we get older. We like to talk and listen to help people feel better, using a way of helping called the psychodynamic approach. The psychodynamic approach in therapy delves into how past experiences, subconscious thoughts, and emotional patterns influence current behavior and mental states. Simply put, this means we think about how what happened in the past affects how we feel now.

Simple Tips to Help Seniors Feel Happier

  1. Make Friends and Keep Them Close: Being around people makes a big difference. Try to spend time with family, make new friends, or join groups where you can meet others.
  2. Have a Daily Plan: It’s good to have a routine. Fill your day with activities you like and that mean something to you.
  3. Move Your Body: Exercise is great for the body and mind. Something as simple as a walk, gentle yoga, or tai chi can make you feel happier and less stressed.
  4. Take Deep Breaths and Relax: Doing things like meditating, breathing deeply, or picturing peaceful scenes in your mind can help you feel calmer and clearer.
  5. Be Creative: Painting, writing, or making music are fun ways to express yourself and can make you feel good.
  6. Think About Your Life: With the help of a therapist or on your own, looking back on your life and feelings can help you understand yourself better and deal with tough emotions.
  7. Learn About Getting Older: Knowing what to expect as you age can make things less scary and help you feel more normal about the changes.
  8. It’s Okay to Ask for Help: If you’re feeling down or worried a lot, talking to a therapist can really help. They can give you advice and ways to cope.
