Longevity Tip ~ Resilience

The longer you live, the more likely you are to experience big, stressful life events. An aging family member who needs caregiving. The death of a loved one. A financial setback. Each year comes with new challenges. The good news: Resilience (or the ability to bounce back and adapt) doesn’t depend on age, income or physical ability. And it isn’t something you’re born with or without. You can build your stores of resilience with daily habits — at any age. Working toward resilience as you age is linked to lower rates of depression and mortality. Plus, people who score high in resilience tend to be more physically active and have strong social lives.
