There’s an iconic song that shares the common desire of millions of people. “Forever young, I want to be forever young.” While it is impossible to remain forever young, you’re also as young as you feel. It is possible to feel youthful and jovial into your older years. The key is to put in the effort. Consider some of the best ways you can work on feeling forever young.
1. Invest in Optimal Rest
Unfortunately, there are many people who believe that they can truly thrive off of four or five hours of rest. While they might be able to operate this way for a while, it’s just not healthy or sustainable. At some point, they’re going to crash and feel a terrible sense of burnout. In order to avoid that crash, prioritize rest. When you prioritize rest, you won’t need so many energy boosters in order to make it through a day. Invest in comfortable bedding and an excellent mattress. Take a sleep supplement to help your body and hormones experience deep sleep. Create a nighttime routine that helps you to fully relax in the hours leading up to your bedtime. Drink chamomile tea. Take a warm bath. Eliminate electronics an hour before bed. These simple activities can help your rest feel much more adequate and fulfilling.
More studies are emerging about the power of stretching for health and vitality. Though it’s not the most convenient pastime, make it a habit of stretching throughout your day. Set your timer for five minutes, and stretch your limbs until the alarm goes off. This is especially helpful for those who spend a lot of time at a desk throughout the day. As the body ages, it can become more stiff and brittle if it’s not challenged. One of the safest ways to challenge the body is through stretching. Look online for stretching routines, Pilates exercises and yoga practices. As you work on maintaining a sense of flexibility, it’ll be much easier to move and feel young in your body.
3. Get Well-Acquainted with Acidic Skincare
When you’re suffering from topical skin issues like acne, one of the most effective ways to fade the scars is through the application of acids that encourage skin cell turnover. The acids work to remove the old, dead and scarred skin. As new skin cells reemerge, the scars fade. In addition to using acids at home like glycolic acid and salicylic acid, visit a skincare professional for professional treatments like a 15 TCA chemical peel. Bring your skincare products to your skincare practitioner in order to get their approval. Don’t just purchase a ton of acids to use every night. You don’t want to do more harm. Instead, with the help of a professional, commit to the use of acids and proper skin care rituals for a few months before you start seeing results. The results will be gradual and slow, but they’ll definitely be long-lasting results.
4. Maintain a Nutrient-Rich Diet
What you put in your body will impact the way you look and feel. If you’re constantly placing processed foods into your body, this will contribute to sluggish, tired feelings. Instead of starting the morning with a large cup of coffee that’s filled with sugar, cream and syrups, start with a cup of unsweetened green tea or a green smoothie. Do your best to include fresh fruits and vegetables at every single meal. Increase your intake of fiber to make sure everything moves through your digestive system in the most efficient manner.
5. Take Time for Joy and Pleasure
On a daily basis, make sure you do things that bring you joy. Whether you go on a date with your partner, spend time doing a puzzle or watch a funny television show as you drink a glass of wine, infuse pleasure and joy into your life. Laugh heartily as laughter serves as an excellent form of medicine to the spirit.
As you implement these tips into your weekly regimen, give yourself time to feel the impact. It takes time to create new routines and a new lifestyle. If you’re used to staying up late and relying on coffee to feel alert, it might take some time for you to get used to going to bed earlier. However, if you remain committed to your lifestyle changes, they’ll reward you with a new lease on life that may make you feel like you could run circles around the younger version of yourself.
