              We are all going to the same end.



              Other than that, take care of yourself. Exercise, eat healthy, avoid oily/butter stuff and you will age "gracefully"
              Also learn, learn and learn.
              It's harder to learn. Memory isn't what it used to be.

                  I'm not sure if this makes sense to others but I'll also add:

                  6) Controlling your temper and striving for calmness

                  I guess it's tied in to stress levels and the negative effects it has on one's health. Not to mention, it's a noble quality that should be upheld by every sincere Muslim.

                    Spirituality is the difficult part.

                    People tend to get angrier/bitter/less patient as the years get on.

                        True. But it's a major step is to be mindful of this, and to make a pure intention not to fall prey to it as you age.

                        Perhaps you can try catching yourself when you do become angry, bitter or jealous, and make Du'a to Allah that He free you from such negative attributes.

                          Lol.
                          You think you know more than my scholar's qiyās? He was more learned than you and all other scholars combined. Yeah, the devil was the greatest scholar too and look where his qiyās of fire being better than tīn got him. Sorry.

                          You follow your scholar's qiyās, and I will follow the Qur'ān and Sunnah.

                              Suggestions depend on your definition of aging gracefully. I don’t think there are that many active members here who are at an age to be thinking about this.

                              I would assume, by the typical definition, that you would keep doing what you’re doing as a Muslim woman. We don’t wear makeup already or adorn outside, so there is no transition here (meaning, we aren’t fixated on our public appearance).

                              The other thought would be eating right and exercising. This, again, is something that should have been developed long ago, so no transition.

                              As far as the mind, it may slow, and you adapt. Knowledge and the desire to obtain it should have been developed earlier. Doing puzzles, such as suduko; memorization; among others, should help keep the mind active.

                              In summary, good habits are good habits regardless, and the sooner they are implemented, the easier the transition or lack thereof.
