Mossler and Ziegler (2019) suggest numerous variables that attribute to successful aging: selection processes [Selection, optimization, and compensation theory (SOC)]; engagement with life, avoiding disease and disability, and high cognitive and physical functioning [Rowe and Kahn’s (1997) Model of Successful Aging]; psychosocial strengths (family and friends), and even specific predictors such as “a stable marriage by age 50 (positive relationships), [a] college education, using mature adaptations, not smoking or quitting at a young age, not abusing alcohol, regular exercise, and a healthy weight” (Mossler & Ziegler, 2019, section 16.2).
