Aging brings lots of challenges, among them fallen arches, back pain and unwanted weight gain!
But getting older also brings us more wisdom, compassion and empathy. A study at Michigan State University revealed that after age 40, subjects demonstrated a greater ability to be
empathetic. Perhaps it has to do with the perspective we gain from years of various life experiences—good and bad—that helps us find common ground with others.
When we meditate, we create the opportunity to focus on values that matter most to us. We can “clear the clutter” so we can find compassion and understanding for those in our families, our workplaces and our communities.
