Aging with Grace

Aging is something everyone must do, and for some, it can be hard. The lifestyle you led in your 20’s is just not going to cut it later in life. As you get older, you will undoubtedly begin to notice changes: wrinkles will form,skin starts to sag, memory starts to slip and it becomes much harder to keep that figure you once had. Many people accept this as part of life and do nothing about it.
We have all heard of the “mid-life crisis”. At around 50, many begin to feel a lack of self-worth, and think that the rest of life is downhill. However, this is not the case if you stay positive and work on staying healthy you can extend your youthful year’s 10-fold.
Did you know that Colonel Sanders was “unsuccessful” until he was 65, which is when his Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant started to take off. Laura Ingalls Wilder, the author of “Little House on the Prairie” did not write a single book until she was 65. There are countless others who found success later in life. Getting older is a privilege and it should be treated as one. If you take care of your body, you will age with grace, and who knows, maybe even find new success.
Here are some tips to help you age with grace.
  • Exercise- Try yoga, which will help with muscle conditioning and also help with balance- both very important later in life.
  • Start taking vitamins –Calcium is good for bone health and B-12 supports proper brain functioning. You are never too young to start a vitamin regimen.
  • Eat healthy- Eat more fruits, vegetables and grains. It’s best to eat a well-rounded diet and make sure you get plenty of water.
  • Keep your mind active – Keeping your mind active is important in later life. Try playing games, or taking a class. This will help keep your brain young; mental stimulation also works as an anti-depressant.
