You don't have to become old and feeble just because you are growing older. You can help yourself stay young longer if you set your mind to it. You don't have to accept the idea that society paints for us about getting old and just whither away as life passes you by. In fact you can feel good and look good even into your “Golden Years”. It just take a little effort on your part.
The first thing you need to do is ignore what you hear and give yourself an attitude adjustment. So what if you are starting to feel some of the signs of aging sneaking up on you, stop and immediately adjust your way of thinking. Believe it or not, you still are younger than a lot of other people around you so act like you are.
If you don't have healthy habits at the moment, then start adopting some. Do yoga, take walks, eat better foods and have a more balanced meal plan. All of these things have great anti-aging affects on your body and your mind.
Stay alerted to the changes that are happening to you and your body and make sure that you make accommodations for them. Talk to your doctor about the changes and find out what you can do to help make the changes less drastic.
Always try to stay in style. Just because you are getting older doesn't mean you have to start wearing granny dresses or suspenders for your pants. Make sure that you keep fashionable without delving into the teen clothes at the local clothing store. You can easily find items that will make you look more trendy that you can add to your wardrobe. There's nothing wrong with wearing clothes that are in style at any age.
Take care of how you look. Just because you are growing older doesn't mean you have to just let it happen. Change your hair color or the way you wear your hair, use different types of creams to help keep your skin soft and more flexible and don't use a tanning booth or lay in the sun a lot, simply try using one of the better sunless tanning lotions that are available.
Take advantage of the free time that you may now have available with your family grown and out of the house. Take up a hobby you never had time for before, read the books you always wanted to read. Do whatever you want to do that makes you happy.
Enjoy your adult children more and enjoy the fact that you can talk to them now in a way you couldn't when they were children. Get more involved in their lives, not in a snooping manner but in a way that you get to know them better as adults.
Always make sure to stay in touch with others, join a community group you might be interested in, take some fun classes just for the heck of it. Get more involved with your church or if you haven't gone to church for a while, start going back and see what new things you might discover there.
Whatever you do, don't just sit around waiting for the years to keep piling on, enjoy them the best that you can and have a wonderful senior life.
