ADVICE FROM YOUR FUTURE SELF

The Cornell University Legacy Project has collected life lessons from nearly 1,500 seniors. The most common: Don't worry so much. Program founder and gerontologist Karl Pillemer, Ph.D., reveals more of the subjects' words of wisdom:

Picture life after 60
Don't tunnel-vision on simply reaching retirement. When you get there, you'll like have another few decades ahead.

Value experiences
People who live the longest look back fondly on time spent with others rather than focusing on material wealth.

Never give up on finding love
Stay optimistic: A surprising number of seniors find new partners in their golden years.

Don't stress about dying
Most elders don't. They just focus on enjoying the years they have.
