Successful aging is a concept that promotes engagement and productivity of an individual from middle age to old age. Globally, people are living longer and enjoying more physically and mentally healthy lives. In the field of aging, more emphasis and research has been done on the successful aging theory. The World Health Organization (2002) asserts successful aging means having physical and mental well-being. It is indicative of an older adult’s ability to remain independent and productive. This concept is multidimensional and currently no single theory independently represents the authority on successful aging. Theorists such as Walker et al. present a model that emphasizes the importance of remaining physically active. Physical activity is an asset to an individual’s mental and physical health. At times, some ailments can prevent an individual from being physically active which can counter successful aging. Mosher et al. have shown that physical activity and exercise, among other variables, can be influential in reducing the risk of illness. Other factors may include occupational physical activity, age, diet, ethnicity, education, and family history. (Nnamdi Orakpo, Does Prostate Cancer Begin in the Prostate?
