As you grow older, your priorities become redirected. Before, the greatest problem you could possibly have is what to wear to school. Fast forward, you’re facing a 2-year old child with temper tantrums. Fast forward again, you look in the mirror and you hit midlife and realize that all those worrying and problematizing finally took their toll on your skin. It’s about time that you know yourself more and pay less attention to your outside appearance. After all, what really matters is how you feel inside. Lets cruise through what keeps one young by not applying a wonder cream or doing a wonder work-out. MEDITATE.. The day-in, day-out stress will make you feel like slipping away from the things which used to make you happy and things which used to make you feel like a child again. Rekindle these good memories by meditating at least ten minutes a day. Take some time to detach yourself from the world and think. Choose a ten- to fifteen-minute break in your day. You have twenty four hours a day. Surely you can find or MAKE time for some meditation. KEEP A JOURNAL.. A Journal is a an outlet. It is a friend which will listen, will not judge and is handy also. A journal is a tool of letting-go of the bad things that have happened to you which pull you back from moving forward. You need to pass on some of your worries somewhere so you can focus on more important things like the relationships around you and the smallest get happy detail of your everyday life. Don’t look at it as a task. Just write whenever you want to. Even in the middle of the night. Isn’t it great no one can judge you for what you write. DATE YOURSELF.. The most important person in your life should be YOU! Remember when you were younger, when all you wanted was the latest gadget and the in pair of jeans? That’s exactly how you should still feel. Go treat yourself to that new iphone. Watch a movie alone, Devour your favorite dessert alone, go shopping alone, go in front of the mirror and say I’m the queen of the world and I deserve it. When you were young, it was all about you. Now that you’re older, let it still be all about you. The secret to staying young is all in the mind. There’s no use studying what certain creams can do to save your skin while not learning to know, love and embrace yourself. Your beautiful, real self.
