How to Feel Young at Any Age

August 5, 2022

Age is a measure of time, but it does not require certain physical or mental limitations to be imposed at any certain time. Feeling young, energetic and free of pain can be a reality for many regardless of physical age if they follow certain steps.

Reducing the Impact of Advancing in Age

1. Lack of physical activity is the number one thing that accelerates age. Walking, yoga, tai chi as well as other forms of exercise are the best way to feel young at any age. Going to a gym and doing repetitive, resistance exercises helps keep muscles strong and toned. Look for ways to insert more physical activity into your day. Take the stairs. Park far away.

2. Pay attention to your posture. Stand up taller and hold your shoulders back. Do not slouch. This helps to ward off potential back, shoulder and neck pain as well as provide a mental reminder to hold your head high with confidence. Act young and feel young.

3. Pay attention to your breathing. This can be done through activities like yoga, tai chi, qi gong or meditation. It can also have impact to simply pay attention to your breath regularly. Be aware of shallow breathing patterns and remind yourself to take a conscious deep breath, or two or three.

4. Seek out mental stimulation. Force your brain to work in new ways. Puzzles like crosswords, Sudoku and Wordle are fun ways to add mental stimulation.

5. Watch what you eat. A nutritious diet lessens the impact of aging and wards off many different ailments and diseases.

6. Eat slowly. Avoid overworking your digestive system by eating slowly and mindfully.

7. Lessen stress. Stress causes cortisol levels to increase which leads to inflammation and metabolic malfunction. Identify any stressors in your life and work to remove them.

8. Positive Vibes. More and more research shows that your thoughts have a huge impact on your physical body. Be aware of negative thoughts and emotions and try to convert them to positive thoughts and feelings. Think yourself to a young and healthy you.
