Not only Charlie was upset about getting old and losing his strength, it is human nature. Men indeed are more prone to be a victim to this threat as compared to females! Men are not sanguine about getting older and losing the hold that they have in things. Although men have slightly different fears of aging than women, they too dread their appearance being at stake. The top most fear of aging in majority of men is enlisted below:
“That first white strand!”
Aging fear # 1: Performance with women!
Prospect of decreased libido or impotence is scarier than it is read. Avoidance of this factor is possible by reducing cholesterol in body.
Aging fear # 2: WeaknessPhysical weakness and inability to perform different masculine activities such as lifting heavy objects or running long miles without losing strength is what every man dreams of. He also wants this ability to last lifetime but regrettably this is not possible.
Aging fear # 3: Retirement
Men have this uncontrollable urge to validate themselves through their careers. Be it their education or talent in any field they want to succeed in every field they approach. When they see their careers slipping from their hands, it is hard for them to accentuate and potentiate their value. Losing their positions at the career prospects the less solicitation of opinion. They have a notion that they may drop into the “invisible” mode. Believe it or not, it targets their ego negatively. We may rule out the men who embrace retirement as a part of their life.
Aging fear # 4: Disease attack!

Aging gracefully not only means that you are physically fit, it also means that your mental health is viable. Some of the diseases that are very common in the aging population are:
- Low immunity
