Beauty Tips for Staying Young

Beauty Tips for Staying Young

Staying young is a state of mind. Your thoughts and attitude have a lot to do with the way you look and feel. The affects of smiling and laughing are quite profound, plus it’s just downright fun to be in a state of joy. Happiness improves your immune system, stimulates feel good hormones such as dopamine, and sends out a good vibration throughout the planet. It also regenerates your cells and uplifts your spirit giving you more energy and zest for life.  Your attitude effects the people around you. If you are grouchy and uptight it shows in your body language and the people around you tense up because they feel uncomfortable. It makes everyone around feel guarded and does not promote the sharing, giving, or receiving of love. Instead it promotes resent and anger and all these things help to break down the immune system, are not enjoyable, steal your energy, and deplete and age you. So it is apparent that if one wished to stay young, then the individual would partake in activities that are fun and joyful and limit activities that are depleting such as arguing with a spouse or being around whiners. I realize this may be a challenge if you are surrounded by negative people in your personal life such as at work or within the family environment. To be better able to deal with others poor attitudes and to keep body functioning optimally ,I recommend getting quality sleep, eating a lot of whole foods, doing exercise, and keeping your mind and spirit refreshed through yoga or meditation. I would also recommend being touched often in a nurturing way such as through massage or hugging others. The combination of these activities work together to promote well being and ward off aging by slowing down the process. Please enjoy the journey and age gracefully.
