Staying Young Requires a Healthy Mindset & Good Attitude

Most everyone would like to stay young and retain their health up and into their later years.   Research has shown that our attitude and how we see things in our lives can play a big role in the aging process.

Attitude and our mindset can define the personality.   Personality can play a very important role in the aging process.  How you look and how you feel about yourself is very important to your overall health and happiness. 

Negative thoughts about your looks can create situations that cause premature aging and possibly other health issues as well.  Comparing ourselves to those who are much younger can be upsetting and depressing, especially if we have unhealthy expectations regarding aging.

There are so many things that one can do to keep themselves looking younger.  Good hygiene, a healthy diet and lots of water is essential to the aging process and keeps one looking and feeling more youthful. Water hydrates the body and the more hydrated we are the more the skin plumps which makes less wrinkles.   Less make up is usually more appealing as we age.  There  are  a number of beautiful lipsticks that do not run.  Softer colors are best.  Colors like peach, mauve and pink are especially good and some women enjoy using gloss.  Most of time anything severe like wearing big flowery prints, clothes that do not fit properly, etc. makes us look older. A good rule of thumb is to stick with simple elegance when it comes to dressing up, wear subtle make up and let your natural beauty shine through.

Nice medium length hair or the short bobs are more flattering as we age.  These styles keep softness around the face.  Real short, severe haircuts tend to call more attention directly to the face and in most cases are not as flattering to the older woman.

Aging is part of the process of life. It is something that we will all experience. Some people just seem to age better.  They seem to age more slowly  and always retain a certain youthfulness about them.  These same indiviudals are usually fun and playful with a sharp mind.

Staying young does require a healthy mindset and a good attitude.  Everything is connected to the mind so if we keep ourselves happy and looking  on the bright side of life we can improve our health and our looks as well.  This allows one to grow old gracefully, enjoying life to the fullest. 

No matter what the age, we all look better when we are smiling and happy.  Being nice to others and appreciating ourselves can helps us stay positive and stay more physically and mentally healthy. So as you can see there is something to be said for a healthy mindset and a good attitude.

  1. Absolutely! A healthy mind is the most important aspect to staying young. I recall a young lady who worked for our company, she felt ’30’ was the end of youth! She left and a few years later I heard somone calling my name. I looked around and the only person I could see was a ‘middle aged’ lady! Yes, it was the same lady but at only 33 she looked like a very matronly 50 +. Her mindset had definitely worked – to her disadvantage!
