Remain positive and avoid negative thoughts. Also read some self help books that have a lot of positive affirmations and statements. Reading these statements can help you to remain positive and replace negative thoughts. If you still have trouble then see a counselor who can teach you different ways to remain positive and reduce worry and stress.
Develop a network of friends and get involved in different social groups will help you as you get older. Friends can reduce loneliness and also makes us feel better. If you do not know anyone then join a local church or social group. Another idea is to volunteer. There are many people who need help and volunteering will keep us active.
Finally, prayer is a great way to reduce the fear and anxiety of getting older. We are unable to control the events that may happen down the road, however God has the power to take care of you. It wouldn’t hurt to include God in your life and say some prayers occasionally. Prayer is a great way to reduce stress and to remain positive.
Again there is nothing to worry about as you get older if you take things in stride. Everyone ages and is a part of life. If you still have trouble dealing with anxieties of getting older then you should talk to a clergyman or counselor. They can provide additional advice on how to reduce your anxieties. Most of the time, things take care of themselves.
