False in my opinion. I feel good almost all of the time but my 80 year old body will not allow me to do most of the things I have always enjoyed and would continue to do if I could. Growing old is not the problem, it is the complications that come with it.
False. Everyone's bodies are different, and they age and break down at different rates. Sure, mentality does have a part to play in how one responds to their own aging, but when your body starts betraying you, and you can't do the things you used to, it can certainly affect your psyche. No matter how healthy your attitude is.
It probably has quite a bit to do with how active you are at work. I was in construction even in my 60's I still climbed ladders climbed up on large ductwork crawled in manholes. I was able to keep up with kids in their 20's. My father has lung problems at 84 and his doctor says if it wasn't for that he's got the health of someone 60.
It's true to a point, but as others have overwhelmingly pointed out here, you can't avoid the reality of age. I'm 56 and work pretty hard to keep in decent shape, but I've had multiple shoulder surgeries and definitely feel my age at times. I'll feel that way increasingly as my body rebels against my mind. LOL!
