Staying young is often a matter of mentality. As much as everyone would like to, obviously no one is capable of turning back the clock or completely stopping it. However, there are a few things you can do to make sure that your mind, body and spirit are healthy and feeling good.
Take Care Of Your Skin
First of all, it’s time to make sure that you’re taking care of your skin. Well moisturized skin tends to age much better than dryer skin, which means that you should slather on moisturizer before you put your makeup on everyday, along with night cream and eye cream before you go to bed at night. You should also make sure that you put on sunscreen with a high SPF every morning as sun damage can cause fine lines and discoloration. This sunscreen guide will help.
Revamp Your Style
If you take a look in your closet, chances are you’ve had a lot of that stuff for a very long time, which means it’s time to start clearing it out. If you haven’t worn something in the last year, it’s time for it to go. You should also consider looking at new styles and items – our bodies change over the years which means that we might want to show off and emphasize different parts of it. Likewise, if you’ve had your hair in the same style for the last twenty years, it’s time to change that up. Hair gets more coarse when it grays, meaning that you might need to start deep conditioning it and using hair masks.
Focus On Your Health
It can be easy to ignore any niggling aches and pains – who likes reminders that you no longer have the body of a twenty one year old? But it’s important to get to the doctor instead of suffering in silence, which will only make the problem get worse. Surgeries like knee replacements or a total hip replacement might sound frightening but the truth is that they can give you a whole new lease of life and make you feel a lot more mobile and able to do exactly what you want.
Do What Makes You Happy
Finally, the most important thing that you can ever do is to find what makes you happy in life and to focus on it. Learning new things, visiting new places, and developing new interests is the best possible way to make sure that you remain open minded to new ideas and opportunities – and even as you’re getting older, you need to welcome those things into your life. As you get older, you start to care less about what other people think so it’s time to ditch the dead weight, whether it’s a partner that isn’t right for you, friends you no longer have anything in common with, or a job that you don’t need to do any more. The world isn’t getting smaller as you get older – on the contrary, it’s opening up as you become more settled and financially stable and you’re able to find out what exactly makes you really happy.
Focus On Your Spiritual Growth
Most people get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life in the physical world, that they fail to remember that we are spiritual beings having a temporary physical experience. Our soul and spirit is a vital part of ho we are, and when neglected can cause negative manifestations in our mental and emotional well being, as well as in our physical health. Some of the most successful people in the world attribute their success to their relationship with God. God is love and God is peace. When we draw nearer to God we can refuel our emotional energies of love and peace, and face our earthly life challenges with greater ease. Our spiritual growth is just as important as our physical health. It allows you to come to understanding of Who God is, and who you are in Him.While God was on earth as a man, Jesus said, “You will have trials and tribulations in this world, but behold I have overcome the world.” This gives us assurance that when we walk with the LORD we can trust in Him to see us through any and every circumstances we may be facing. There is nothing better than knowing God loves you and is always on your side. I’ll take that peace of mind all day long.
