Life Coach Portland, OR: How to Develop a Better Attitude Toward Aging

How to Develop a Better Attitude Toward Aging

We know that from a cultural point of view, we could learn to develop a better attitude toward our elderly citizens. But what about the attitude we have toward our own aging?

Clients come to me for help with their self-confidence and it’s not unusual to discover they are afraid of getting older.


Men and women are equally afraid of growing older and benefit from taking a look at the details of their fears.

A fear of aging can undermine your self-confidence.

Try this:

  1. Breathe in to the count of 8, hold for 8 and exhale to the count of 16.
  2. Repeat 3 times.
  3. What is great about being the ‘age’ you are now? Write down everything you like about now.
  4. How would you like to be when you are older?
  5. What would the details of life be like if you were this older version of you? Remember, be specific.
  6. Is there an older person you admire?
  7. Write down the details of why you admire them.
  8. Consider using self-hypnosis to begin to change your perceptions about aging.
  9. How would you be as a person if you didn’t have an aversion to becoming older?
  10. Do you know anyone who has died at a young age, and if so, do you think they’d enjoy growing older?
