It’s often said that youth is wasted on the young, but many women agree that 50 and older is the perfect age. Sure, you may not be 20 anymore, but many women 50 and above have no desire to be 20 again. “I’m comfortable with myself, I’m more confident. It’s really the perfect age,” says Mary Ellen, 54. This sentiment is echoed many times over by women around the world.
Many women in their 50s and beyond feel like they finally have time for themselves. You’re out of the raising babies phase and your kids are old enough to fend for themselves—this means more free time for you! Say goodbye to carpools and soccer games and hello to yoga, art classes or delving into the latest best-selling novel. “I am the perfect age right now because I feel fulfilled and satisfied,” says 61-year-old Migdalia. “I’m embracing the world and everything it has to give—it’s time for me.” From gardening and volunteering to traveling, launching a new business venture or learning how to cook a gourmet meal, now is the time to take advantage of all of the things on your bucket list.
Once you hit a certain age, you know who you are and you’re confident in yourself. As you get older, you learn to trust your instincts and stop listening to what others think you should do with your life. You no longer need to follow the fashion trends if you don’t want to—you know what style works for you and you can build a wardrobe around that. Gone are the days of relying on self-help books and magazine articles to find answers to life’s questions. With age comes experience and wisdom that allows you to remain true to yourself.
There’s some truth to the saying that “50 is the new 30.” We’ve come a long way since our parents were in their 50s. We know so much more about health and wellness now than we did a generation ago. Following a healthy diet filled with whole grains, leafy greens, and bright berries rich in antioxidants can help fight off illnesses and keep your body looking as young as you feel. Now that you finally have more time, you can explore new forms of exercise. Take that hot yoga class you’ve always wondered about or try kickboxing. Spend time at your local farmer’s market and learn how to incorporate seasonal organic fare into your diet.
Many women feel that turning 50 is like a new lease on life. The perfect age is the start of the next chapter. You’re wise enough to know who you are and you have the time to explore new avenues of joy. Being 50 and over means being fully present and excited about your life. Whether it’s starting a new business venture or traveling to the other side of the world, this is the time to savor life and enjoy every moment.
