Our society and culture do not have a positive view of ageing. Look around you and you will find popular culture making it look as if old age is all about joint pains and body aches, wrinkles, gradually fading beauty and so on. To tell the truth, you will experience these unpleasant events as you age but that is not the only characteristic of ageing. Age brings maturity, knowledge and wisdom, the three elements that can help you weather storms much more effectively. As for biological ailments, there are ample treatments available. Beauty is a matter of perception and it would be foolish to halt the natural process of dulling physical beauty as a result of ageing, rather it is better to age gracefully and make the most of what you have.

50, most would agree is an odd age. You are no longer in the prime of youth but you cannot be considered old either. You are in the transitional phase from young to old when you feel a bit of both – the vigour of youth and the exhaustion of old age. But 50 is also an interesting age and many people in this world have witnessed major turning points in life at this time.

What Happens When You Turn 50?

Nothing specific happens when you turn 50, but in general, life becomes less turbulent and less unpredictable. You are well into your profession, have gained considerable experience in it and hence your job has become less of a stress than it was before. Surprisingly, new opportunities open up and with it comes a chance to give your life a new direction altogether. Personally, you are wiser, more self- assured and that does wonders for your mental health. Let us look at some of the things that happen when you turn 50.

You are Older and Wiser

It is the universal truth that the older you are, the wiser you would be. As you age, you gain more and more experience in the drama called life, see a myriad of situations which in turn contribute to your wisdom. At the age of 50, you are less likely to get drawn to unhealthy and toxic situations as the thoughtlessness associated with young age is near extinction. You are wise and you would not jump into anything before giving it thorough thinking. This prevents unnecessary stress which in turn contributes to your general well-being. Being wiser also makes you more capable of negotiating tricky situations as you will, more often than not, know what needs to be done.

You Have More Time for Yourself

At the age of 50, your children (if you have any) have become adults and are settled in their own lives. You no longer have to be the active parent busy in nurturing and raising your children. This gives you some free time, as, besides your job, there is nothing that needs your constant attention. You can utilize this free time however you wish. You can travel, read more books, watch movies, join some clubs and so on. You can also use this time to pamper yourself or to catch up with your old friends.

You Can Try Something New

This free time can also be used to learn something new or try something that you have never done before. If you have always wanted to learn a skill or do something but haven’t yet got the opportunity to do so then this is the perfect time to do it. Learn to play an instrument, join acting classes, try out an exotic cuisine and the likes. Remember the sky is the limit. You are supposed to live not just exist. You have fulfilled your duties and responsibilities and now your only consideration is you.

You Can Become an Entrepreneur

For salaried individuals who do not come from a business background, age 50 is probably the best time to start a business venture. Years of working, earning and saving have left you with quite some amount of money and now it is time to invest it and increase your fortune. You can build a business on something you are passionate about, something you enjoy. Like opening a restaurant, or a music-themed cafe, building a company that makes mobile video games, or starting a movie production and distribution business, the list is endless. You have worked so far to fulfil another person’s dream, now it is time to give wings to your dreams.

10 Birthday Party Favours

When you think of party favours or any gift in general, you have to think on the lines of meaningfulness and utility. If a gift is not meaningful to the person you are giving to, or he/she cannot relate to, then the gift is not special at all. If the gift is not useful then it becomes a burden and it would also not serve the purpose of a gift which is to make the recipient remember you fondly when he/she is using it. Choosing party favour items for children or teenagers is easy as there are a variety of items that kids and teens love to possess. The problem is with the adults. You can’t just gift them a fancy toy or a quirky item. You have to think the items through thoroughly to ensure they are both meaningful and useful. But there is nothing to worry about. Follow this BP Guide to choose the best party favour for your 50th birthday party bash:
