    Practice yoga and meditation every day for one hour. Awaken your enlightenment energy through meditation. A calm mind is a positive mind, and using yoga and meditation to self calm whenever you feel doubt or unhappiness is an ideal practice. If yoga doesn’t work for you, keep looking to find the spiritual exercise which is helpful for you. And be sure to practice daily: You can have every positive religion or philosophy you want, but you must practice it to get the bliss.

    Have a hobby. Life has purpose when you make choices about the things you want to do and then do them. A hobby is an excellent way to remain fulfilled and interested in what is happening around you. Inevitably, a hobby will always provide a way to reach out to others who are interested in the same hobby as you, thereby increasing your fulfillment through interaction with other people. It doesn’t matter what sort of hobby you have provided it is enjoyable, affordable, and is practiced with restraint.

    3. Spend time with friends. You can find friends on the internet, in collaborative projects like wikiHow, in spiritual associations, in social organizations, and through volunteer work. It’s a good idea to meet up regularly with one or more people so that you connect and feel part of a greater whole. Spend good times together and speak up if you’re not enjoying what you’re doing. The time for putting up with things is long gone.
    4. If people pretend to be your friends and hurt you, wish them the best and part ways. There is a time and a place for trying to mend things with people but as you grow older, there is less time and a need for faster acceptance that some relationships are simply not meant to be. Don’t sweat it; find the people who fill you with joy and happiness and spend more time with them

  2. Love an animal. If you like pets, be sure to have one. The love, comfort, and connection with a pet is as important to you in old age as it was to you at any age. Animals don’t judge us the way people too, and animals don’t care what our age is provided we ensure they’re well fed, groomed, and loved. Choose a pet that is easy to care for and can be handled by you without a worry.

    3. Consider doing positive things for others. This can be a time of life where you’re more than happy to give back to others, and you also have the free time to do so. Volunteering, teaching, or guiding can be good ways to pass on your experience, knowledge, and skills to others and in return, you continue to connect with people and to receive the joy of knowing that you are helping others to learn. A part of you will always live on in every person you help and teach, so do good and live in the energy of love.
    4. In doing good for others, you become the mother or father of the world, not just of the children you have parented. This extended family is a privilege of old age, and as your wisdom is treasured by many others, your mind will change into love.

  2. Learn to stop fearing dying. Your spiritual exercises are a very important means for helping you to break through the fears and worries that you may hold about death and letting go. Meditation and chanting mantras can also be a source of great comfort. Realize that after your death, you will earn the great benefit of your spiritual old age. You will move into a dimension of light, peace, and love. Even if you don’t believe in a life after death, the comfort to be obtained from viewing death spiritually, as a cycle, and accepting it as what is meant to be, will be great.

    Motivate yourself every day. In old age, thinking can easily become negative because ways are set and change becomes something to be loathed. Yet, giving up is worse than dying; never wanting to learn another thing, never wanting to change another thing allows decay to set in and your old age will lack harmony and purpose. While it’s not easy to motivate yourself to exercise each day, to practice your spiritual reading and meditations, and to find the will to cook healthily, these are important sources of re-energizing yourself and of helping you to cope with the changes of life. To help you get motivated, find a helpful phrase that will energize you and cause you to react positively.

    • What is your helpful phrase? Every day, find a way to re-energize the power to live a positive life. Start the day with spiritual music, a word of a spiritual master or a spiritual exercise like yoga with positive thinking.
