What is learned hopefulness and how you can embrace it: Useful insights by one of the leading senior living homes in Chennai

December 20, 2022

Categories : Positive Ageing

There comes a time in life when the world around you may seem to be falling apart. In such a scenario, learning to stay positive and hopeful can help you move forward and look at the challenging situations from a new perspective. The benefits of staying positive and hopeful Having a positive attitude in life is not just good for your mental health but also physical health.  According to a study, those with a family history of heart disease and many other high-risk factors were less likely to have a heart attack if they were positive thinkers. If you want to be positive in life, learned hopefulness is the key. As one of the leading senior living homes in Chennai,  we share with you some useful insights on learned hopefulness: What is learned hopefulness? Learned hopefulness is a concept that refers to the ability to learn from past experiences and use that knowledge to remain hopeful for the future. It allows you to keep going even when you face setbacks.   1.Shift your expectations:  Shifting your expectations does not mean lowering your standards. It means assessing the ground realities and working with what you have right now. In other words, establish expectations which are appropriate for the situation and not what you would have liked to have in an idealistic scenario. Focusing on what can be done in the future rather than on what happened in the past creates a sense of hopefulness.   2. Identify negative thoughts: Often your automatic response to a bad situation is negative thinking. You may think negatively even without noticing it. The moment you feel frustrated or annoyed, start identifying the thoughts that are coming to your mind. Swap negative thoughts with positive ones. Although that sounds easier said than done, you can try reframing your thoughts. When you find yourself thinking negatively, pause for a few minutes. Taking a pause will help you give a thoughtful response to the situation rather than a reflexive reaction.   3. Establish new habits: You can learn to be hopeful by taking away the attention from negative thoughts. A great way to do this is to establish new and healthy habits. When you direct your attention to something else there will be no negative thoughts to overcome. Creating healthy habits such as practising yoga, taking your pet for a walk, and attending music or dance classes can take your mind off the things that are bothering you.   4. Listen to another person’s story: When you are feeling down, listening to family members or friends can be helpful. You can ask them to tell you a story about a meaningful time in their life. Pay attention to the story and look for things that helped them overcome the situation.  You can even try reading inspirational books. Here is a list of some inspirational books  that may help you feel more optimistic.   5. Use positive affirmations:  When you wake up, start your day on a positive note. A simple way to do that is to write daily positive affirmations and feel gratitude. Your daily affirmations could read like: “I love myself as I am”, “I treat myself with compassion”, or “I am open to inspired thoughts”. You can even keep positive affirmations at a place where you can see them. Are you looking for senior living homes in Chennai?

Fun activities for senior citizens to do on a Rainy day

December 11, 2022

Categories : Positive Ageing

While rain brings much-needed respite from heat, heavy downpour can foil your outdoor plans. Often on rainy days, seniors stay in bed and watch television – as a result they get bored and feel isolated from others. If you are looking for senior-friendly rainy day activities, here is an interesting read. As one of the leading retirement homes in India, we have curated a list of fun and interesting activities to do on a rainy day:   1.Play board and card games:  Get together with a couple of friends and enjoy an afternoon or evening of board and card games. Chess, carrom, puzzles, and playing cards are some indoor games that will not only make the time pass faster but also keep your brain sharp. If your friends are unable to make it to your place, you can play online games. At our retirement homes in India, we have a clubhouse with facilities for  indoor games such as table tennis, carrom, billiards and foosball. Note: It has been found that cognitively stimulating activities such as crossword puzzles and number games can delay cognitive decline and may reduce the risk of dementia later in life.   2. Read a good book: Whether you enjoy fiction, nonfiction, or thriller, reading is a great rainy day activity that you can either do alone or together with others online. We have well-stocked libraries in our retirement homes where you can read in peace. You  can also read e-books as we also have computers in the library.   3. Catch up with friends and family online: With social media and video-chatting apps, you can communicate with friends and family anywhere in the world. A fun way to spend a rainy day is to bond with your grandchildren or friends online and catch up on what is happening in their life.   4. Go through old photos:  If you have boxes of loose photos lying around in the house, a rainy day gives you the perfect opportunity to sort them. You can put photos in different categories, label them, and put them in albums. This might also be a good time to create a scrapbook that has all your favourite memories. Note: You could also use scanning apps to create digital copies for your photographs. This will make it easier for you to share them with younger family members who live away.   5. Listen to podcasts:  When you listen to podcasts, not only do you learn about unique topics from the experts, but you also get to cut down your screen time. Also, listening to podcasts offers stimulation to the brain and helps in igniting mental imagery. According to a study,  listening to narrative stories (much like podcasts) can stimulate multiple parts of the brain.   6. Indulge in your favourite hobby:  On a rainy day, you can pursue your favourite hobbies. Whether it is crocheting a blanket or painting a picture – an idle rainy day lets you spend time doing something you love.   Searching online with phrases such as “activities for senior citizens near me’ or “retirement homes around me”? Surrounding yourself with people who share common interests is an important part of life. If you are searching ‘activities for senior citizens near me’ or ‘retirement homes around me, explore our senior living communities.  We conduct numerous senior-friendly activities and events for residents. The monthly activity calendar is changed often so that you get to explore different social and learning opportunities. To know more about our social activities, call us at +918884555554.

Embracing positive ageing? Here are some books on personal growth that you must read

December 10, 2022

Categories : Positive Ageing

If you are seeking to embrace positive ageing, grabbing a few inspirational books on personal growth is a good idea.  Reading inspiring books will fill your mind with uplifting thoughts and concepts.  Not just that, many books on personal growth come with exercises and prompts that get you thinking about the choices you make in your daily life. As one of the leading retirement homes in India, we share with you a list of books on personal growth that you must read to understand positive ageing:   1.The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason: If you are looking for financial wisdom, this book is for you. In this book, the author shares how Babylonians managed their wealth and what readers can learn from them. The book underlines that often people confuse making money with creating wealth. The two are different — making money is done to achieve short-term financial success while attaining wealth involves longer-term goals. Although published in 1926, the book is still one of most-read books on personal finance.   2. You Can by George Matthew Adams:  Written to promote personal growth and well-being, this book offers practical advice on leading a fulfilling life. The book talks about a wide range of topics such as how sitting for an hour in silence can shape your creative vision or how you could use time better to have a more productive day. The book asserts that you can do anything you set your mind to — all you need is determination.   3. What Are You Hungry For? Deepak Chopra:  Written by the bestselling author and endocrinologist Deepak Chopra, this book is not a traditional weight loss book. It deeply explores the relationship between eating and emotions. The book uses scientific research to show how overeating is associated with hunger for love and self-esteem. The book says that by changing how eating is perceived, people no longer have to rely on fad diets to maintain their ideal weight. Although the book offers a regimented recommendation on what to eat, it also digs deeper into the reasoning behind the desire to eat.   4. Think Like a Monk by Jay Shetty:  Inspiring and empowering, this book shares how monks find happiness and meaning through self-awareness. From creating effective morning and evening routines to developing an impactful gratitude practice, this book offers you actionable steps to train your mind for peace and purpose everyday.   5. Here, There and Everywhere by Sudha Murty:  Do you think that you are too old to do something? Well, Sudha Murty started writing books (in English) at the age of 50. To date, she has scribbled many short stories, children’s books, fiction, novels, and a lot more. This book is an excellent read if you are looking for inspiration. The book captures the author’s literary journey and how she wrote over 200 books across genres and languages. The trajectory of the author’s personal growth is inspiring.   Looking for retirement homes that make it easy to embrace positive ageing? Our retirement homes in India help you live full and meaningful lives. A wide variety of wellness programmes, a calendar of events, and quality dining options are curated to nurture mind, body and spirit. With the on-site team taking care of maintenance and household chores, you have the freedom and choices to celebrate your retirement life the way you like it.

How to spread holiday cheer in your neighbourhood?

December 4, 2022

Categories : Ageing Tips | Positive Ageing

The holiday season is a time for giving and there are plenty of ways to get into the spirit of giving without overspending. You can start by doing something nice for someone else, such as making a holiday dessert for your neighbour or volunteering at a local charity. As one of the leading senior living projects that promote positive ageing, we share with you some tips on spreading holiday cheer in your neighbourhood:   1. Donate your old clothes: When cleaning your closet if you find clothes that you no longer wear, donate them to a local charity. There are many organisations that accept used clothing to help people in need.   2. Decorate the neighbourhood: Lanterns, diyas, flower decorations, and papercraft are some of the simple yet awe-inspiring ways to deck up your neighbourhood during the festive season. Your community may have some guidelines on how to decorate. Before you begin to decorate, ensure that you follow all the guidelines.    3. Handwrite a letter: There is something about the personal touch of a handwritten note that makes it feel so much more special than a generic mass-produced card. This holiday season, take the time to sit down and write a letter to someone you care about. This does not have to be anything fancy – just a few words expressing your appreciation for them. They will be sure to appreciate the thoughtfulness, and you will be glad you took the time to connect with them in a more personal way.   4. Gift movie tickets to your neighbours: One way to spread holiday cheer is to buy movie tickets for movie buffs in your neighbourhood, especially if there is a new and interesting movie to catch up on. It is a small gesture but can show that you made an effort to make them happy.   5. Host a holiday gathering: One of the best things about the holidays is getting together with friends and family to celebrate. If you are looking for a fun way to spread some holiday cheer, why not throw a party? There are plenty of ways to make your party festive, from decorating your home to serving seasonal foods. You can also ask your guests to bring their favourite holiday dish to share.   6. Greet everyone you meet: One simple way to spread holiday cheer is to say a jolly “Happy Holidays” to cashiers and waiters at local shops and restaurants.   7. Distribute friendly notes: A simple message can brighten the day of someone and it is a nice way to show that you care. You can leave the note anonymously or you can sign your name. Either way, your kindness will be appreciated. If you are not sure what to say, try expressing gratitude for something your neighbours have done. For example, you might write “Thank you for being such a good neighbour” or “I am lucky to have a neighbour like you.”   Searching for senior living projects that promote positive ageing?

Positive ageing for senior citizens: How to make positive affirmations work for you?

December 3, 2022

Categories : Positive Ageing | Positive Ageing Tips

“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness.” Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher and writer In today’s challenging world, it is important to have positive thinking and optimism in all aspects of life. For seniors, positive thinking can help them transform their approach to ageing. Positive affirmations play an important role in positive ageing – they can help seniors feel good, create worthwhile relationships, and live a purposeful life. As one of the leading retirement communities in Puducherry, we promote positive ageing for senior citizens. If you are looking for more information on positive ageing for senior citizens in gated communities in Puducherry, check this useful read. What are positive affirmations? Positive affirmations are statements that help one feel positive. Some of the common affirmations include phrases such as “I am happy”, “I am strong and positive”, and “I am thankful for what I have”. If you are a senior looking to make positive affirmations work for you, here are some useful tips for you: 1.Write down negative things: In a notebook, write down negative thoughts that hold you back in many ways. For instance, if you are trying a senior-friendly sport activity for the first time and you are facing difficulties mastering it. Write down the negative thoughts that come to your mind such as “ I am not good at sports” and “I can never do it”. Next, think about the effects that the thoughts had on you. Once you have jotted down the effects, write down the positive affirmations such as “ I can be good at sports” or “ I can win”. Look back at this diary at the end of each week, and analyse your thought patterns and understand the efforts you need to put to change your attitude towards the sporting activity and make progress.   2. Avoid general affirmations: Affirmations can be about anything, so get creative and make yours as specific as possible. Consider linking affirmations to core values, such as honesty, kindness, or dedication. This will help you remain focused on the bigger picture of what matters most to you. Additionally, pairing an affirmation with a physical action such as taking a deep breath or standing upright, can help increase its power.   3. Make positive affirmation part of your morning routine: When you wake up in the morning, write down your affirmation or mantra for the day. Writing it will help you remember to say it throughout the day. You can write your affirmation or positive mantra while enjoying your coffee or tea.   4. Sleep better with an affirmation: Practise positive affirmations before going to bed. This can relax your mind and body and help you sleep more easily.   5. Review affirmations frequently: Writing down affirmations and reading them regularly, you can remind yourself of your goals and skills. Doing this helps you to improve your overall well-being. Additionally, reviewing affirmations can help to keep you motivated and focused on what is important to you.   6. Repeat positive affirmations whenever you feel low: As you get older, it is easy to fall into negative thinking patterns. This can even affect your physical well-being. Positive affirmations can play an important role in helping you break free from negative thoughts. Every time you have a negative thought, say a positive affirmation such as “I can do it”, “I am worthy of love and respect”, or “I choose hope over fear”. Repeating these affirmations will help you reframe your thinking and eventually help you conquer negative emotions and behaviours.

Ask yourself these questions:  Why are you looking for a job? Is it primarily for financial reasons, or are you also seeking to fight boredom? What type of activities do you hope to engage in at work?  How many hours per week do you want to work?  Would you be interested in working part-time or full-time?  Would self-employment be a viable option for you?  Answering these questions honestly will lay the groundwork for finding a job that will suit your needs and preferences.

One of the main reasons to leave a job voluntarily is because you might have something better to do.  You can also choose phased retirement. Phased retirement is when you reduce or change the hours you work at your current job while retaining your position and benefits. This can be a great way to ease into retirement, as it has many benefits, such as: It helps you earn an income It can provide more leisure time and let you pursue other interests It lets you continue receiving employer-sponsored medical benefits Why work after retirement?

Principles of positive ageing: useful insights for senior citizens

Principles of positive ageing

How do you feel about growing old? Do you feel scared? If yes, then you must know that it does not have to be like that. How you choose to accept the changes associated with ageing is important to enjoy your golden years to the fullest. The principles of positive ageing help you accept the expected and unexpected changes that age brings and lead the retirement life you have always dreamt of.   But what is positive ageing?   Positive ageing for senior citizens simply means living a healthier, happier, a more engaged life for longer. It involves taking proactive steps to improve your health and well-being as you age.   Here we discuss some principles of positive ageing:   Connect with people: There is no doubt that everyone has a need to feel connected to others. The sense of belonging that comes from being part of a community is an essential part of mental and emotional well-being. There are simple things that you can do to build stronger connections with those around you. Something as simple as inviting your neighbour to your house for a cup of coffee or joining a social community to meet like-minded people can help you feel connected with others. By showing interest in others and taking the time to connect with them, you can be a part of a community of like-minded people.   Stay physically active: As you age, it becomes even more important to stay physically active. Regular exercise boosts your flexibility, strength, and balance. It can also help reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Walking is a great way to get started on a physical activity programme and just 15 minutes a day can make a positive difference to your health.   Engage your brain: The brain is an amazing organ that is constantly changing and adapting in response to its environment. This process, known as neuroplasticity, was once thought to peak during childhood and then decline with age. There are many ways to keep your brain healthy and working at its best. Picking up new hobbies, learning a new skill, or any other activity can boost your brain health.   Eat well: The food you consume has a direct impact on your physical and mental health, so it is important to make sure that you are eating foods that will nourish your body and provide you with the energy you need to live your best. As you get older, your body requires fewer calories, so it is important to choose foods that are high in nutritional value. A diet that is rich in fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and healthy fats will provide your body with the nutrients you need to stay strong and healthy.   Contribute to your community: When you get involved in your community, you develop a sense of pride and connection.  Taking part in community activities, be it volunteering at a local charity or taking part in cultural events, can help build strong relationships.   Looking for a senior living community that promotes positive ageing for senior citizens?   At our retirement homes in India, we promote positive ageing for senior citizens by facilitating an independent and active lifestyle. All the amenities and facilities are carefully chosen to help you live your golden years to the fullest. Our retirement homes have senior-friendly gyms, clubhouses, jogging paths, and facilities for indoor and outdoor games so that you stay physically active. Also, we have an activity-filled monthly calendar that has yoga sessions, cultural events, birthday celebrations, and movie screenings.   Once you move into our retirement homes, you will have access to services such as preventive maintenance for electrical and plumbing work, housekeeping, laundry, and daily meals. We also have a 24X7 ambulance service on standby and a doctor-on-call available when needed. Each apartment has a panic button so that immediate assistance can be sought.

Intellectual wellness and positive ageing: check these useful insights

September 7, 2022

Categories : Positive Ageing | Senior Living Tips

Intellectual wellness and positive ageing

When someone asks how you are feeling, it is easy to immediately think about your physical health. However, there are many other factors that influence your overall well-being. One important aspect is your intellectual wellness. This refers to your ability to engage with the world around you in a meaningful way. Nurturing your intellectual wellness is a way to keep your brain sharp as you age. What is intellectual wellness? Intellectual wellness is exploring new ideas and experiences that can help you grow as a person. It involves engaging in activities that stimulate your thinking and expand your knowledge. Intellectual wellness is important because it helps you to think critically, solve problems, and make decisions. It also allows you to enjoy life more fully by giving you a greater appreciation for the world around you. Here we discuss some activities that enhance your intellectual wellness: Journaling: A journal can be a wonderful tool for reflection and thought. It gives you a place to document the banalities of daily life as well as the lessons you have learned. Whenever you write, you engage in a creative outlet that helps you expand your knowledge and skills. Consequently, journaling is an excellent opportunity to exercise your brain and enhance your intellectual growth. Playing games: Puzzles, word searches, and various games can help keep your mind active. Playing cards or board games with friends or grandchildren can boost your intellectual wellness; when you play games the mind is continuously thinking. Working on personal goals: Setting positive goals and doing the work to achieve them is one of the best ways to live a meaningful and stimulating life. This could be learning a new language, starting a blog, taking art lessons, or operating a non-profit organisation. Reading more often: Reading can be a great way to unwind and escape from the stresses of daily life. Additionally, reading can also help you gain a new perspective on life. By reading about different cultures and historical periods, you can learn about the world in a way that you never would have otherwise. Explore new hobbies: Trying something new can be exciting and challenging all at the same time. Whether it is taking up a new hobby that needs acquiring knowledge or learning a skill, such as quilting or experimenting with new culinary techniques, or learning to play an instrument, pushing yourself to learn something different can open up a whole new world of possibilities. Positive ageing: Spend your retirement life doing things that bring happiness At our retirement homes in India, we understand and recognize the importance of maintaining the different dimensions of wellness. We do our best to incorporate health and wellness into the lives of residents and encourage them to embrace positive ageing. As staying physically active is an important part of positive ageing for senior citizens, our retirement homes in India have regular yoga sessions, gyms with senior-friendly equipment, and paved walking paths. Also, we have an active social calendar so that our residents get to make new friends and spend time with like-minded people. Our residents can pursue photography, dancing, art and craft, and music lessons. To know more about how we promote positive ageing, call us at +918884555554.
