Futures of ageing

Keep moving

By 2. June 2022No Comments

In the future I want to “always keep moving physically and mentally, practice solitude and self-reflection, listen more to my needs and live them, than just imitating role models” …

We asked, you answered.

How would you describe yourself?

60 years old, female, individualist, I work as a business coach, as a human resources consultant and for gender justice

Imagine you are 72, 80 or even 99 years old: How and with whom do you live together?

In a group of people of more or less the same age

Who are the most important people in your life and how do you spend time with them?

Eating, drinking, discussing with the people who are still alive then, especially with those who are the most mentally tough still. Whoever that will be.

What is your sex and love life like in the future?

If possible, two-sided: with my healthy hands and with a suitable partner.

How do you manage to stay mentally and physically fit?

Moderate exercise, reading and social contact

How do you afford everyday life in the future?

Pension and property

In the future, what do you get up for in the morning?

For my life. Whatever is still possible in old age: exercise, intellectual exchange, cooking, gardening …

If you had to tell a young friend about all the things you’ve done right while ageing and would thus recommend to them… What would they be?

Always keep moving physically and mentally, practice solitude and self-reflection, listen more to my needs and live them, than just imitating role models, laugh and smile every day about myself, with others, at others
