The fountain of youth has never been found to the dismay of many. But, there are a number of ways you can look and feel younger, regardless of your age. Here are six ways to feel younger.
1. Eat healthy
Eating a good diet of fresh foods will 100% make you feel younger. When you eat junk food, like processed foods and foods full of sugar and unhealthy fats, you feel literally, crappy. This type of food doesn’t do well for the digestion system, sugar makes your blood sugar peak and crash and unhealthy fats clog up your arteries and have you feeling sluggish. The healthier your diet is, the better you’ll feel, maybe even better than you did in your 20s.
2. Exercise regularly
While all of this advice sounds straightforward, it is surprising how many people don’t follow it and wonder why they feel so old. Not only does exercise give you an energy boost, it is so good for your bones, muscles and joints. You’ll feel more limber and be able to take the stairs much easier. You may even stand up straighter.
3. Address your mental health
Stress ages you so much. You can see it in your face when you are feeling anxious, those dark circles and the puffiness in your chin. If you have underlying mental health issues that are causing you stress and anxiety, deal with them. You’ll not only feel lighter, you’ll feel younger. Whether that is talking to a counsellor or doing rehab, do what it takes to take care of your mind, as well as your body.
4. Get a new wardrobe
New clothing can do wonders for a person. You not only feel fresh, you feel like a new person, a younger person. Go through what you have now and get rid of anything dated or worn or that doesn’t fit. That will make you feel younger as it is. Then, have a little shopping spree, only buying clothing that fits well, is flattering and that suits your age. Dressing too young makes you seem older, so skip the crop tops and thigh-high boots for something that is more appropriate.
5. Get some work done
Looking younger is truly a state of mind, but sometimes we need a little help. Getting a facelift in St. Clair Shores can help you look and feel younger. Botox, liposuction and other cosmetic procedures are all good ways to enhance your appearance without having to do a lot of work.
