You only live once, and your body aging is something that you can’t stop – no matter how hard you try. Taking care of your body: eating the right things, getting some exercise, or even just laughing – can go a long way in looking and feeling younger.
Health magazine did an article regarding simple ways to “Feel 10 Years Younger,” and we think it’s good reading, so we’re going to share them with you.
The first is to act like a kid. Do something that you really enjoyed when you were a kid, and it will instantly bring back those good feelings.
Get more Vitamin C. Oranges are a great source of vitamin C, as are strawberries and bananas. This little boost can help build collagen, which will make your skin look younger and more radiant.
Fade out dark spots with topical lotions, which are usually caused by sun damage.
Cook your veggies with water. No, not boiling – steaming! Studies have shown that veggies that are cooked without water, such as grilling or roasting, do not offer benefits to your body, neither inside nor out.
Get moving! Doing small exercises that strengthen and tone key areas that get worse with age can help you feel more confident in how you look and help you to feel younger. Even just stretching in the morning will increase your overall mood.
There are things in life that you just can’t control, and that’s OKAY! Stopping your fight to always be in control will decrease anxiety and stress, which impacts your mood.
Just trying one or two of these tricks can quickly help you in the long run. And if you need just a little more help with other things around the house or traveling to appointments, we can help with that! Reach out to us.
