Life Transitions / Getting older – How to cope with an ‘older’ body?_Question

Posted on Friday, May 1st, 2015 at 12:40 am.

Dr. Beth, When I was young (teens and twenties), I was a dancer, I acted, played soccer and did gymnastics.  Over time, I gave up pretty much all of those activities, largely just due to life circumstances  (getting involved in school, work, relationships, having kids, etc.)  Now I’m in my mid-50s.  I only have one child left at home and he’s a senior in high school. I have time to start doing the things I love again. But now I have a few old injuries that crop up and I just don’t have the flexible body for gymnastics or the types of dance I used to enjoy.  I feel discouraged and I’m not sure how to handle these new limitations in a healthy way. I need some ideas for coping.
