Recapturing these feelings is possible. In fact, taking the time to feel younger can actually extend your lifespan and help you feel happier overall. These five suggestions will have you turning back the clock in no time.
1. Get your hormones checked
Your hormones change as you get older. Symptoms of low hormones such as fatigue, low sex drive and memory loss can be treated. You can start by checking with one of our doctors to see if hormone replacement therapy is right for you.
2. Get more sleep
Getting enough sleep is the easiest way to feel younger right now. The only time your body can truly restore itself is when you’re asleep and chances are, you’re not getting as much as you need.
Make up for your sleep debt by turning in early enough to get eight hours of shut-eye for six weeks straight. After six weeks, the time it takes to form a lasting healthy snooze habit, you’ll feel the difference with more energy and fewer dark circles.
3. Eat more energizing food
Start by eating the healthy stuff first. Start every meal with a fruit or vegetable and a tall glass of water. Loading up on the vitamins and antioxidants in fruits and veggies will make you feel refreshed, recharged, and reenergized.
4. Get lifting some weights
The right kind of strength training can help you feel years younger. Strengthening your muscles leaves you less vulnerable to injuries and builds your stamina. Try focusing on your lower body and core.
5. Stay positive
It’s natural to be a bit gloomier than when you were younger since time often exposes just how cruel the world can be. That’s why the final step to feeling younger is nixing your inner naysayer. Instead, focus on what you do well and the great things in life. Cultivating a greater sense of optimism will provide you with more positive energy to motivate you to do youthful things.
