Top 10 Anti-Aging Rules
Don't become a caricature of what you were at 20 or 30.
Women who are guilty of this tend to wear the look that they had when they felt
their most attractive. Besides, women today are more active and vibrant into
60's 70's and beyond than ever before.
Anti-aging self care is key to self confidence
Anti-Aging Rule #1
makeup the way you update
your wardrobe. As a woman matures,
skin care and makeup
application changes but they always go hand in hand to create beauty. More
focused attention to skin care is in order. "Less is more" when it comes to
makeup. Makeup should be applied and colors should be chosen in a way that helps
lift the face to make you look younger and more attractive. Your cosmetics
should never be used as something to hide behind, rather your makeup and skin
care should be used to enhance and accent the mature beauty that you have
Anti-Aging Rule #2
Age gracefully and you'll always remain youthful. Love yourself. Not in a
narcissistic sense, but in a spirit of gratitude for the marvelous mind and body
your have been given. Those who appreciate what they have are less likely to
indulge in food, alcohol, and tobacco abuse, and are less likely to neglect
exercise and other anti-aging tactics.
Anti-Aging Rule #3
Believe it’s possible to control the aging process. This rule is not easy to
accept because life is finite. You look at how family, friends and peers age,
and not one of them is getting younger. However, that doesn’t mean it’s not
possible to Put Old on Hold. We have an “earth is flat” mentality about the
aging process. The reality is, we have more control than we think.
you can believe it is possible to put old on hold, then visualize how you want
to be when you are 60, 70 and beyond. You must have a clear picture of what you
desire and commit to making it happen. That commitment will drive the choices
you make about how you live, think and behave.
Anti-Aging Rule #4
Educate yourself about what constitutes a healthy anti-aging lifestyle.
Always remember, your health is your number one priority. Nothing matters more.
You must know as much about vitamins as you know about your favorite TV
personalities. It’s not work, it’s an exciting journey. Read widely – do not
latch on to the beliefs of any one health guru. Take your time. Evaluate
everything you read. Be ready to change beliefs when it is obvious something
else makes more sense.
Anti-Aging Rule #5
Find a traditionally trained physician who has
anti-aging nutrition and
anti-aging medicine. This
will help you reach your goal. Another caution: Do not “fall in love” with your
anti-aging physician. Other doctors know even more and it is appropriate to shop
around until you find someone who is really in harmony with your thinking and
approach to anti-aging.
Anti-Aging Rule #6
Engage in rigorous mental management. No more negative self talk such as “I
must be getting old,” or “I’m too old to do that anymore,” or “I’m losing it.”
Your subconscious is your obedient servant. It listens to everything you say or
think about yourself and will help get you where it thinks you want to go,
faster than you can imagine.
Anti-Aging Rule #7
Control lazy, human nature. Even if it’s ten
walking, do it on a
regular basis. Do not engage in mental discussion about being too tired or some
other excuse. Just do it. As middle age approaches control thoughts about
entitlement. Do not expect or allow others to do for you what you are capable of
doing for yourself. Unnecessary dependence is selfish, costly to self-esteem and
Anti-Aging Rule #8
Avoid Negative environment. Do not allow negative comments from others about
your appearance, health, or activities to throw you off track. Develop a
bulletproof attitude about yourself. When asked how you are your response must
always be, “I am terrific” and believe that you are!
Anti-Aging Rule #9
Keep a running inventory of your youthful attributes. Only you can determine
what they are, and the best way to discover what you value most is to observe
old people. What do they do, or how do they live, think or behave that you
consider “old”? When you decide what youthful attributes are important to you,
make certain to stay focused on what you want to achieve.
Anti-Aging Rule #10
Do not retire. If you are healthy, you cannot retire if want a fabulous
second life at 60, 70 and beyond. Retirement expedites decline and a
poverty-level lifestyle. By age 50 at the latest have an “exit plan” in place,
so at 60 or 65, you can go on to a second career, go back to school, or start a
you have taken care of yourself early in life, you should be in reasonably good
to excellent health later on, ready for more than a rocking chair, bingo games
or a nursing home.
