Late last year, just a few months following her 100th birthday, the actress Gloria Stuart died. A working actor for years, she became widely known in one of her last roles, as “old Rose” in “Titanic” -- the character portrayed as a younger woman in the film by actress Kate Winslet, who survives the sinking of the ill-fated ship.

Stuart was 87 years old when the film was made, but looked and acted remarkably younger, and had to be “aged” with makeup to resemble better what the producers thought an 87-year-old should look like. Her character’s projection and bearing (and revealed later, as she was in real life) provided an excellent example of what it’s like to age dynamically -- something we should all strive for.

While caring for ourselves physically as we age, and with a little genetic luck thrown in, the good mindset must also come into play. This means having and maintaining a good mental balance and attitude -- which can include continuing to do in life what pleasures you the most, and establishing a code of ethics “tailored” to your own personality, based on values that are specific to you. This outlook should also include liking yourself, your surroundings and those you call your friends -- and taking pleasure in being a useful, involved person.

Growing older should be looked upon as just another of life’s adventures, and instead of slowing down, should be part of a continuing learning process. And if a daily dose of Prevagen can help you secure and build on this course of action, all the better.
