Do you ever wake up some mornings and long to be young again?
Maybe there are times when you wish you had more energy or hanker for that youthful body you once had in your younger days.
Perhaps you’re caught up with the hopelessness of aging and of getting old, and of fighting what seems a losing battle or wondering whether the mysterious secrets of eternal youth actually exist or if any anti aging techniques really work?
And now you wish that being tired with the stress and the burdens of life was non existent; so you could return to a time when you looked in the mirror and you liked what you saw, a face without the wrinkles of time.
Perhaps now the experiences of a younger life exist only as a faded memory in your thoughts, and the photographs taken in your prime give evidence of how young you once were.
Looking and feeling younger is a consequence of how you see and feel about yourself and of the life you live. Anti aging is about you being more aware of the way you live your life from moment to moment; and how willing you are to put your own body’s needs first and cater to your body’s overall health.
For so many, life is a continuous circuit of work, struggle, and paying the bills.
What spare time do we have to worry about anti aging or looking and feeling younger when there are other priorities to take care of?
You may sometimes wonder where you fit in on the list of priorities that rule your life. Are you at the bottom, having put everyone else’s needs before your own or are you somewhere in the middle? Or maybe you have ceased to exist altogether and you’re not even on the list at all.
If you make a simple pie chart showing how much quality time you devote to each area of your life, including the people in it and yourself you may be surprised to see how little time you devote to yourself. Quality time that is just for you.
If you allow yourself to rest a little more and to have more fun this will help to ease your tension and stress and give you a reason for living other than purely keeping up with life’s daily traumas.
Taking time out for yourself to relax, unwind, and have fun is as important in this day and age for anti aging as a healthy diet and daily exercise. Think how much better you feel after a good night out spent with friends whose company you enjoy. It’s more effective than any tonic.
Take up a new hobby or pastime that you really enjoy doing. Go dancing, take up tennis, go cycling or walking, anything to get you out of your usual routine and get you mixing with like minded people.
Give yourself something to look forward to each day. It could be a few moments of peace and quiet, meeting up with a valued friend, an exhilarating pastime, or a new personal goal.
Put yourself high on your list of priorities because the way to look and feel younger is to look after yourself and your body’s needs. From this point you will be better equipped to face life’s trials and tribulations and be better able to tend to the needs of others who depend on you.
If you drive your body to exhaustion then life will become a struggle just to keep on living.
When you become more relaxed and happy with yourself from the space that is inside you, you will naturally begin to defy age and feel more energetic, you will look and feel much younger, and you will be filled with a wonderful sense of fulfillment and discover the secrets of eternal youth.
