Have you ever come across people who seem to be ageless? Not only do they look like time has frozen for them, but they also give off that energy and vitality of someone in their youth or prime?
I’m sure you thought — I want a double-shot of what he or she is having!
People who exude youthfulness have a set of beliefs and habits that they perform to support and promote their ageless lifestyle.
We only need to mimic their techniques to reveal our own youthful sparkle. Lucky for you, I am here to share the “crib-sheet” of those age-defying systems. Watch the video to get more in depth or read below to get a glimpse of the 10 big ideas.
Here are my 10 Big Ideas on How to Be Youthful at Any Age:
1. It’s All in the Mind
Upgrade your belief system to one that supports an ageless way of being. This means you have to chuck those thoughts of I am too ‘old, tired, lazy, unhealthy, unattractive, unworthy’ and all other limiting beliefs that stop you from living the youthful life you desire.
2. Youthful People Play!
You can never be too old to play. You only think you can’t because you’re too worried about what other people will think of you.
Repeat after me, “It is none of my business what other people think of me. The people who are important and truly love me want me to be happy. I am happy when I let the playful side of me out.”
To actually begin to be more youthful, you must play a little every day.
3. “Imagination is everything. It is the preview of life’s coming attractions.” – Albert Einstein
One tenet to remaining youthful is to never lose your imagination. When used wisely, your imagination is what keeps you positive, hopeful, and playful. Such attributes are the cornerstone of an ageless way of being.
4. Spontaneity is the Spice of Life
We all get caught up in our life “to-do’s” and to tell you the truth, that’s a recipe for an unexceptional life. We all have to do what we need to do — take care of family, work, and our responsibilities — but we also need to be unpredictable, unguarded, and to do unexpected things so that we can discover joy in unexpected places.
5. Laugh Often and Laugh with Gusto!
The timeless Audrey Hepburn said, “I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it’s the thing I like the most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It’s probably the most important thing in a person. “
6. There is a Fountain of Youth
“There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.” – Sophia Loren
Sophia Loren, like Audrey Hepburn are icons of grace, beauty, and agelessness. Everything from their aura, attitude, and fashion style exuded a timeless way of being.
With this particular quote, Mrs. Sophia Loren recommends that to defeat aging, we must use our minds, talents, and creativity. Therefore a youthful existence is one where we stay involved, participate in life, and create things.
7. Maintain Your Physical Prowess
Being youthful implies a lifestyle that is active and energetic. Look and feel young by staying loose, limber, strong, and toned.
8. Eat for Optimum Health and Energy
Food plays a large role in how we age. Certain foods promote vitality whereas others create inflammation and quicken the aging process. Learn what foods give you energy and which foods quicken the aging process and avoid the latter as best you can.
9. Ageless Beauty Tips
To stay looking youthful you need to find a skin-care system that works for your particular skin type. The 3 most important things to do for ageless skin health is to exfoliate, moisturize, and do preventative measures to stop the creation of wrinkles and fine lines.
10. “You are never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” C.S. Lewis
This is a true statement for everyone.
At any moment, you can change your thoughts, mood, and the direction with which your life is going.
No matter how old you are, if you want to stay enthusiastic, hopeful, and youthful– don’t stop dreaming. Your dreams is what will propel you to live an exceptional life. One way I have learned to make dreams into reality is to schedule the dream.“You are never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream.” C.S. Lewis Click To Tweet
