How to Stay Beautiful, Young, and Attractive for Longer

How to Stay Beautiful, Young, and Attractive for Longer

Every day so many women are taking steps to ensure that they look their best now, and in the long run. While there is no perfect solution for everyone, there is a general set of guidelines that one can follow to ensure that you stay beautiful inside and out, for much longer.

Surround Yourself with the Same Type of People

It has been said that an individual is the average of the five people that they spend the most time with. Look at the five people closest to you: do they exhibit the qualities of beauty that you want in your life? Surround yourself with those who have the same outlook on life as you do; this will feed your positivism. Many times, friendships are held onto out of obligation, even when they are not conducive to having an optimistic, beautiful, and attractive lifestyle.

Sleeping Habits

Beauty sleep isn’t just a myth. Getting enough sleep on a regular schedule will help to boost your levels of energy, keep weight down, and relieve stress. It is advised to get a minimum of six to seven hours of sleep each night so that you can get the rest you need to look and feel younger and confident. Sleeping on a good mattress is key to having a good sleep pattern — a mattress is generally good for eight to 10 years so if you’re not getting the best rest possible, the time for a new mattress might be here.

Exude Happiness

Feeling happy and optimistic will show, and having a positive attitude will influence how you look and feel. Approaching life with a glass-half-full attitude will bring positive things into your life, and will cause you to smile often. Smiling makes everyone more beautiful.

Watching Your Weight

Ideally, one would keep the same weight over a long period of time. This means that you need to be aware of what you are consuming and get the right amount of exercise to maintain the weight. Doing small things to boost your metabolism will have great payoff in the long run for staying around the same weight. If you are carrying around a few extra pounds, feeling attractive doesn’t have to come with losing weight fast — slow and steady is best.

Eating Habits

This plays a vital role in staying beautiful for longer. Having a healthy diet can boost the body’s ability to fight off the things that take a toll on the skin. A healthy diet is one rich in vegetables, fruits, and fish with a healthy amount of water for hydration.

Care for Your Skin and Hair

This means that you should use some sort of sun protection every single day, especially when spending an extended amount of time outside. Regularly exfoliate your skin, as this is an essential part of maintaining a healthy glow. It will keep wrinkles at bay and will even out your skin tone. Hydration and moisture for the skin are also essential. There are many cosmetic creams available, but also face mists that can be spritzed on through the day. Healthy hair is obvious; maintaining luscious locks doesn’t have to take a lot of effort. A regular trim will help you to grow healthy and beautiful hair — even if it isn’t your natural color (we won’t tell!).

Stay Young at Heart

Don’t forget to take your time to have fun and just play sometimes. You should embrace your inner child whenever you feel yourself getting too serious. Open your eyes and heart to the beauty and excitement in life, and really think about the question: “if your age wasn’t known, how old would you feel?”

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

How to Stay Calm and Cool When You Are Extremely Stressful

Being in a hurry all the time drains your energy. Your work and routine life make you feel overwhelmed. Getting caught up in things beyond your control stresses you out…

If you’d like to stay calm and cool in stressful situations, put the following 8 steps into practice:

1. Breathe

The next time you’re faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to hurry, stop what you’re doing for one minute and perform the following steps:

  • Take five deep breaths in and out (your belly should come forward with each inhale).
  • Imagine all that stress leaving your body with each exhale.
  • Smile. Fake it if you have to. It’s pretty hard to stay grumpy with a goofy grin on your face.

Feel free to repeat the above steps every few hours at work or home if you need to.

2. Loosen up

After your breathing session, perform a quick body scan to identify any areas that are tight or tense. Clenched jaw? Rounded shoulders? Anything else that isn’t at ease?

Gently touch or massage any of your body parts that are under tension to encourage total relaxation. It might help to imagine you’re in a place that calms you: a beach, hot tub, or nature trail, for example.

3. Chew slowly

Slow down at the dinner table if you want to learn to be patient and lose weight. Shoveling your food down as fast as you can is a surefire way to eat more than you need to (and find yourself with a bellyache).

Be a mindful eater who pays attention to the taste, texture, and aroma of every dish. Chew slowly while you try to guess all of the ingredients that were used to prepare your dish.

Chewing slowly will also reduce those dreadful late-night cravings that sneak up on you after work.

4. Let go

Cliche as it sounds, it’s very effective.

The thing that seems like the end of the world right now?

It’s not. Promise.

Stressing and worrying about the situation you’re in won’t do any good because you’re already in it, so just let it go.

Letting go isn’t easy, so here’s a guide to help you:

21 Things To Do When You Find It Hard To Let Go

5. Enjoy the journey

Focusing on the end result can quickly become exhausting. Chasing a bold, audacious goal that’s going to require a lot of time and patience? Split it into several mini-goals so you’ll have several causes for celebration.

Stop focusing on the negative thoughts. Giving yourself consistent positive feedback will help you grow patience, stay encouraged, and find more joy in the process of achieving your goals.

6. Look at the big picture

The next time you find your stress level skyrocketing, take a deep breath, and ask yourself:

Will this matter to me…

  • Next week?
  • Next month?
  • Next year?
  • In 10 years?

Hint: No, it won’t.

I bet most of the stuff that stresses you wouldn’t matter the next week, maybe not even the next day.

Stop agonizing over things you can’t control because you’re only hurting yourself.

7. Stop demanding perfection of yourself

You’re not perfect and that’s okay. Show me a person who claims to be perfect and I’ll show you a dirty liar.

Demanding perfection of yourself (or anybody else) will only stress you out because it just isn’t possible.

8. Practice patience every day

Below are a few easy ways you can practice patience every day, increasing your ability to remain calm and cool in times of stress:

  • The next time you go to the grocery store, get in the longest line.
  • Instead of going through the drive-thru at your bank, go inside.
  • Take a long walk through a secluded park or trail.

Final thoughts

Staying calm in stressful situations is possible, all you need is some daily practice.

Taking deep breaths and eat mindfully are some simple ways to train your brain to be more patient. But changing the way you think of a situation and staying positive are most important in keeping cool whenever you feel overwhelmed and stressful.
