Feeling Young, Staying Young

The world is obsessed with youth: youth clubs, youth culture, youth consumer products… is it any wonder that once we pass the mid-20s, everyone wants to stay young as well? The fashion and beauty industries earn billions of dollars from individuals determined to stay young at all costs. Yet time inexorably draws them towards old age.

A look below the surface however, shows us that it is possible to remain young – at heart. The individuals who look younger than they are often maintain their health well but it is not the only thing that contributes to their youthful looks and nature. Here are some of the things that keep them from joining the ranks of grandparents.

In the Pink of Health

Those who have fewer ailments are less likely to age in looks. Individuals who look younger than they are usually eat a balanced diet, exercise adequately, and use some kind of anti-ageing beauty drink supplement to give themselves that extra zing they need to maintain themselves. The earlier you start to eat right, drink right and exercise, the longer long lasting your youthful looks will be and the better you will feel.

Worry No More

Mothers often warn their children about frown lines, and this is one piece of folk wisdom that is actually true. People who frown and worry a lot soon develop ‘worry’ or ‘frown’ lines on their forehead and around their mouth. These give them an aged appearance that no amount of exfoliation, moisturizing and gac fruit beauty drink will reverse. Practice yoga, meditation and other relaxation techniques. Listen to music or do something that relaxes you every day. Genuinely try to not worry about things beyond your control. Instead, smile more. Smiling causes lines too, but they do not age you.

Keep Your Mind Open

As we grow older, we become more and more close minded until we reach a point where we no longer want to learn anything new. This is because we have completed creating our points of reference in the cultural map of our minds. This is detrimental to anyone who wants to remain youthful. Part of being a youth is to be open to new experiences. So the next time you hear music that you don’t like, don’t deride it as ‘new generation music’; give it a few tries and try to understand why it’s popular. Cultural paradigms change all the time so staying stuck at one point is only going to accelerate your aging process.

It’s not all about your physique, it’s about your head and heart too.
