Feel Older Than You Really Are? Here Are Some Practical Ways to Change That

Progressing in age comes with enough challenges. So, when you feel older than you actually are, it can be especially discouraging. Fortunately, however, there are many practical steps you can take to start feeling younger, healthier, and happier than ever! From working with a consultant team to focusing on positivity, here are some ideas for how you can foster your overall health and well-being in your everyday life and feel your very best:

Meeting With Professionals

If you’ve been feeling especially overwhelmed this year, you’re not alone. The pandemic has resulted in more people worldwide dealing with chronic stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues than in recent history. The most important thing you can do to turn the tide in your own life is to act immediately. Consider getting help from professionals whether it’s a therapist, counselor, financial adviser, or any other kind of expert that can help you navigate these strange and difficult times.

Prioritizing Nutrition

Nutrition is the foundation for any healthy lifestyle. Basing your diet around foods like vegetables, fruits, lean meats, fatty fish, and whole grains can make a big difference in how you look and feel. And you don’t need to spend a lot of extra money to eat well. When possible, go for common dishes that you can make with stuff that you already have, such as soups, sandwiches, and quesadillas.

Even if you eat a healthy diet, there will be gaps in your nutrition. Consider taking supplements to help fill those gaps. For instance, a super food drink can provide many benefits, such as: reducing inflammation, strengthening your immune system, providing you with more energy, and promoting weight management. Just be sure to consult your doctor before adding any supplements to your diet.

Exercising Regularly

Exercise is crucial when it comes to healthy living. The benefits are far and wide, reaching from an improved immune system and stronger cardiovascular health to better self-esteem and alleviated depression symptoms. Whether you like running, swimming, lifting weights, doing yoga, or engaging in any other physical activity that helps you break a sweat, try to do it three or four days a week.

If you need some extra motivation or organization in your fitness routine, consider investing in an Apple Watch SE. This smartwatch includes features like an electrocardiogram, emergency SOS, and fall detection. It can also connect with your iPhone to take phone calls and play music. If you’re not a big Apple fan, look into all the Apple Watch alternatives like the Samsung Galaxy Active 2 which tracks your fitness, comes with a GPS and has a two-day battery life.

Women who are into yoga can also try iBreve, which attaches to bras or sports bras, and analyzes breathing patterns to alert you about potential spikes in stress. You can learn more about iBreve at Yogarjuna.

Keeping Positivity at the Forefront

No one needs to tell you how much negativity there is in the world these days. One way to improve your health and well-being is to focus on the positive aspects of your life. Start each morning by writing down a few things you are grateful
for. It doesn’t matter how small or insignificant they seem; simply thinking about the good in your life can reduce stress and set you up for a healthy mindset for the rest of the day.

Learning New Things

Finally, look for ways to expand your knowledge and skills. Learning new things is a great way to keep life interesting and stave off cognitive decline. Take an online course, pick up a new hobby, read books, and watch engaging documentaries. You might be surprised by how an eagerness to learn can help you feel younger.

Are you ready to feel your age—or maybe even younger? Consider what kind of professionals you can consult, make sure nutrition and exercise are top priorities, and remind yourself of the positive things in your life each day. Lastly, always seek to learn new things. Taking care of your health and well-being in these ways will make a world of difference in how you feel and approach life day in and day out.

  1. I was a bit confused by the title. I had to read it a second and third time to understand it. I think it’s the way the question mark is not included in the URL! This is a good read, thanks. There are so many disappointing happenings around us that you can leave you feeling deflated all the time. Having a positive outlook and conceding the fact that you cannot control everything greatly helps. At a personal level, I took up exercise since the pandemic started and I’m feeling much fitter, and younger.

  2. Hello,

    I do agree that age is just a number, important is how you feel inside of yourself is all that matters.

    I simply do not understand why some people tend to think that once they are hitting 40 or 50, they will slow down and giving all excuses like I’m getting old, I’m too old for this now etc, thus the feeling of negativity is slowly eating them inside.

    All the five elements that are mentioned in this article are great ways to stay positive and keep encouraging ourselves to move further. In fact, eating healthy and exercise regularly is part of my regime now. 

    During the covid time, where spending time in our home is more than before, I think we need to readjust a little more of our daily routine compared with pre-covid time. Like it mentioned in your article, acquire new skills utilizing the power of the internet like creating new hobbies, online business, education, offering professional services like online home exercise etc. 

    I’m 46 this year but I honestly do not feel that maybe ‘slightly’ younger internally, mentally or physically. I never think that I’m too old for this or that so as long I’m capable of doing it, that’s fine.
