Age Is But A Number, So Stop Counting

Ageing is inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you’re happy about it. It shouldn’t mean that you have to throw your hands up in defeat and accept it either. You can enjoy life at any age, but it’s okay to want to look, feel and be young. Survival is a natural human instinct, much as it is for all animals, so ageing seems counter-intuitive in terms of all the things to which we strive in life. Nevertheless, you don’t have to feel so gloomy about it all. Ageing is a sign that you’re still living, after all. And, if you’re still living, then you should actually be living.

So, how do you come to grips with the frustrating process of ageing? Whether you’re annoyed by that grey hair glistening atop your head, or that dull ache lingering in your hip that you swear wasn’t there five years ago, there’s always a way to not only relive your youth, but continue to live it. We’re only as young or as old as we allow ourselves to be. That means the key to ageing gracefully, or disgracefully, with little to no care for how old or how young you might be. You’ll have a happier and healthier life the sooner you start to live life to its fullest, because good health and a peaceful mind depends on feeling and being as young as possible. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

Be proud of yourself.

This is the key. Don’t feel glum about the natural process of ageing. Age with dignity – or even indignity, if that’s the way you want to age. Peace and self-confidence are the traits to which people gravitate, and that’s the key to feeling younger. In fact, that’s the key to being younger, as you’ll be holding on to the optimism and life which drove you when you were a child. You should keep acting the way you always have, because the body fights on for as long as you fight on. It’s easy to feel down about getting older and being unable to do quite so much as you used to, but what’s hard is saying “no” and refusing to get old. What’s hard is trying harder to be as active, fun and crazy as ever.

Of course, being proud of who you are doesn’t mean you can’t make changes, if you really want to.

There’s no point in shrugging your shoulders and giving up, especially given how easy it is to get your hands on a quick, reliable solution. You should be able to look as young as you feel, so don’t let anything hold you back. It doesn’t make you any less you; it just helps you to showcase an appearance you want to be showcasing. People of all ages do it through fashion and makeup, so why not you?

Do fun things. Well, you should do more of them.

You might fancy a holiday that you never had the time or money for when you were young, because now you can think of no better way to spend your time. Whether you’re still in work or not, allow yourself some treats in life. Take a little bit of time off and live a little. See something that you’ve never seen before in some distant place. Adventure and explore, because the time for learning and growing never ends. If you want to do something, you should just do it. You’re the same person you always were, aren’t you? The only difference is that you’re a little wiser now. That doesn’t mean you’re any less fun.

Maybe having fun simply means enjoying the freedom which comes with retirement, or perhaps your final years in the workplace. Yes, that’s right. You know where this is going. You know what I’m going to suggest. Allow yourself more time in bed each morning. It’s a small treat, but it’s also a wonderful one. Nobody has to know that you’re allowing yourself to be a little lazier (other than your significant other, perhaps).
