So instead of succumbing to tired stereotypes, think about what you love about your current age.  Yale University research shows that older adults who see aging as a good thing live almost eight years longer and have a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease compared to those who view aging negatively. “Having a positive view of aging is associated with both living longer and living better,” Dr. Kaiser says. 

It turns out, the fountain of youth was inside your head all along.
