When people feel old, they can become frail and often stop having an active life, no longer participating in social activities or physically exercising which can lead to lower quality life and relationships.

A person's beliefs about their self could lead to a loss of interest in participating in social and physical activities, poor health, stigmatisation and reduced quality of life."

PearHaven, a website for dating ideas and relationship advice, reports on feeling over the hill vs. having an active life. If a partner in a relationship starts to have negative feelings about being old, this attitude can affect the quality of the couple's relationship. Current scientific research presented by the British Psychological Society, April 12, 2013, "Think you are old and you start to feel frail." The study was carried out by Krystal Warmoth and colleagues at University of Exeter Medical School.

Ms Warmoth stated: "A person's beliefs about their self could lead to a loss of interest in participating in social and physical activities, poor health, stigmatisation and reduced quality of life."

British Psychological Society said the findings in the research suggest " those who see themselves as being over the hill might give up activities such as physical exercise that would otherwise keep them fit and healthy."

Couples who maintain a physically active life together may experience more healthy, vibrant years to come. Scientific research from NIH confirms the importance of staying active. National Institutes of Health, November 6, 2012 report, "NIH study finds leisure-time physical activity extends life expectancy as much as 4.5 years." Even low levels of activity or no matter what the person weighs still extends the life expectancy years."
