Sometimes the hardest part about getting older isn’t the actual process of aging, but the insecurities that can accompany knowing that you are a certain age in a time when society has a fascination and obsession with youth. Getting older doesn’t have to be something that makes you feel as if you have to run away.
You should embrace your aging and appreciate the fact that you are getting wiser, more complex, and more than anything more interesting. However, it can still feel good from time to time to feel a pick-me-up. Feeling good about yourself is important, and you’re only as old as you feel. Here are some tips for feeling younger if you start to believe you’re getting older.
Buy Some New Clothes
Sometimes the greatest cure for feeling refreshed is going to the store and buying something new to wear that makes you feel good. It is, of course, important to keep your finances in check and spend your money within reason, but allowing yourself some indulgences once in awhile is important.
As long as you are being smart about paying your bills and not dwindling all of your money away on luxuries, spoiling yourself once in awhile in order to feel better about yourself is a must! Even if all that fits in your budget is a shirt for the month. Buy something sassy that makes you feel fabulous.
Studies show that people who laugh more often have a greater satisfaction for life and feel younger. Laughing is something that most people associate with youth. Children are always laughing and smiling, and by doing so we are reconnecting ourselves with our younger selves.
Try watching a funny movie or hanging out with your best friend who alway put you in a good mood. Forget about fancy face creams, just let out a big laugh and you’ll feel 5 years younger on the spot.
Dancing makes you feel joyful and carefree. Sometimes the reason we feel older is because we forget to have fun. Go out and lose control. Throw your hands up in the air and jump around. Get sweaty. Twirl around and sing at the top of your lungs.
Sometimes losing control is the best thing that you can do to set your soul on fire.
Buy Some Under Eye Concealer
One of the things that dancing and laughing can’t cure unfortunately are under eye circles. The eyes are the windows of the soul, and if you are tired, your eyes are going to show it.
Try putting some brightening concealer under your eyes and lessen the appearance of tired eyes. This will take years off of your face.
