 What is ageing and What is Growing ? Are they same? IF not, then what is the difference?

People usually take both the words expressed in the question with the same meaning, but on a deeper look, a subtle difference between the two words is clearly visible. Aging is concerned with the age of human beings, animals and material things whereas growing is concerned with the maturity of human experiences.


 Aging means growing older:

 “Aging is inevitable, growing old is optional! There is nothing we can do about aging. It is a natural process everyone experiences. We can either accept this inevitable change in our lives or get blindsided by it.


 Growth is energy-driven synthesis of macromolecules from simple nutrients, an increase of order and a decrease of entropy. Aging is decay, a loss of order and a rise of entropy.

 Maturity is an inner growth. Ageing is nothing that you do; aging is something that happens physically. Every child born, when time passes, becomes old. Maturity is something that you bring to your life – it comes out of awareness.

 Growing old means you reject or resist the way the world and you inevitably change. Growing up means reflecting on yourself critically, in efforts to improve and continually evolve your abilities to learn, relate with others, and feel.



 Natural changes happen in the body as we age, such as skin damage from sun exposure, loss of muscle and physical strength, loss of some sight and hearing, as well as changes to our sleep patterns, energy levels and appetite.



It arises from a complex mix of genetic traits and is influenced by factors like microbiome composition, environment, lifestyle, stress, diet, and exercise. Genetics were once thought to have no influence on aging or longevity.


 When you like to grow rather than age, Taking care of your physical health involves staying active, making healthy food choices, getting enough sleep, limiting your alcohol intake, and proactively managing your health care is essential. Small changes in each of these areas can go a long way to support healthy there by you can concentrate on growing well.
