10 Tips to Keep Young in Midlife

CC Jump, jump, jump by moonjazz taken on July 9, 2009,
"Age is just a number!" Do you believe it? There are women who refuse to reveal their age because they don't want to be judged, accepted, or dismissed because of what their number age implies. On the other hand, there are women who revel in their age. They are the ones who embrace the totality of their person, who are confident that whatever age they are in, they can cope with the situations or adversities that goes with it.

Another popular old adage is, "with age comes wisdom". As we ponder this proverb it brings to mind that age has an element of time. The longer we live, the greater the experiences we encounter. These experiences contribute to our learnings in life. During that learning period, we made wrong decisions, we made an incorrect evaluation of the situation that eventually leads to a crisis. These adversities served as lessons that in the future gave birth to wisdom, a guide to a better understanding of every facet of life.

We talk about age because many women are conscious of their physical attributes as they aged. This post is not about the physical aspect of keeping young. It is about the emotional wellness of midlife women.

I have here 10 tips to keep young in midlife:

1.  Stay positive - keep a good disposition in life. If we experience downfalls, do not let it break you but instead treat it as a challenge in life.

2.  Exercise - a healthy body means a healthy mind. Keep yourself physically active and you'll be happy.

3.  Eat a well-balanced diet - this means eat go, grow & glow foods in moderation.

4.  Laugh a lot - laughter is the best medicine, it is the cure for all worries.

5.  Keep company with young people - young people are fun to be with, they have innovative ideas that bring a new perspective to old conceptions.

6.  Quit smoking - smoking shortens lifespan by 10 years.

7.  Don't drink alcohol - the more alcohol you drink, the higher your risk of strokes, aneurysm, heart attacks and early death.

8.  Drink plenty of water - drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. A dehydrated body is prone to various ailments.

9.  Create a hobby - a hobby brings forth new interest in life.

10. Nurture your spiritual life - do not let a day pass without praying. " I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. - Philippians 4:13

Let me share with you a quote;
Style is the sum of so many things – beginning with a sense of who you are and having self-confidence. - Kate Spade

Kate Spade (RIP) may have along the way lose the sense of who she is and her self confidence that led to her early demise, but it's not late for us my midlife sisters. Live a good life, stay physically, mentally & emotionally fit and you'll feel young in midlife.

Do you have any tips on how we midlife women can stay forever young? Share them here.

Middle life is beautiful.

Till next time. God bless.

Product Review: Maxi Peel Zero

Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty. - Coco Chanel There are so many ads shown in media about skincare products for pimple & acne removal and at the same time for smoothening and lightening of facial skin. Usually, these are skincare products that exfoliate the skin to remove the skin impurities brought by exposure to nature, pollution and even the cosmetics you apply on your face. Exfoliating the skin would mean darkening of the skin first, then peeling, last is the reddening of the skin.

I have tried facial exfoliant before but after a few days of using it, I have to stop using it completely because it was so painful. My face felt raw, even the touch of the wind or water on my face was so painful. I have to cover my face with my hanky because even a whiff of wind hurts my face. My face became reddish, it looks I've been extremely sunburned.

I received sample products from SampleRoom and one of the items  I ordered…

What's in a life of a Work-at-home Mom

"Work-life balance is not a reality. You need to strive for work-life integration or work-life blend. My family is most important, but my job is also an important part of who I am and I want my kids to appreciate that." - Overheard at She Runs It Working Mother of the Year Awards
