Want to know how to feel younger and have more energy again? They say fifty is the new forties. But the truth is once we hit the big five zero, we hit the wall. We got to face the hard painful reality.
We all know as we age, our body changes. Our once flat tummy now is protruding, the well-rounded and firm butt has gone washboard flat, hair thinned, liver or age spots started popping out, waistline disappeared, jowls sagged, breasts drooped and triceps jiggled.
Even our brain has taken a toll. You say the wrong word or dial the wrong number. Some of us would blame ourselves for not neglecting our lives all these years; for not eating well, not exercising more often or not having enough rest. Then there are some will blame God, Nature, their genes and whatnots.
Like many other women, I too found myself at this familiar juncture. Again, like many of these miserable women, I have this wishful thinking. Are there ways to reverse my age, maybe back a little and get back more energy, confidence and hopefully beauty that the years will enhance?
Yes, I want to how to feel younger and have more energy again. I want to blossom with age and not wither. Hopefully to live longer. I wish, I wish….
Well, one fine day, my wish did come true in some ways. I came a cross this book at my favorite bookstore. It is called “Younger By The Day: 365 Ways To Rejuvenate Your Body and Revitalize Your Spirit” by Victoria Moran. I agree that from the title, it sounds cliched. But as I flipped through the pages, I found there are nuggets of wise suggestions.
This is a fun, helpful and inspirational book which can get you onto the path of awakening the timeless part of yourself, no matter how old you are.
It is a daily guide of practical instructions that help us to turn back the clock, so to speak. What I love about Moran’s advice and tips in this wonderful book is the focus is on the inspirational aspect.
We all got to accept the very fact that we cannot be young again in term of calender age. But we can revitalize and rejuvenate our spirit and take a positive look at life.
Writer Victoria Moran tells us to be less concerned about the inevitable passing of time, or too worried about our physical body and its conscientious care. But focus more on our mind, emotions and spirit. We should accept ourselves as we are and still nurture yourself into becoming the best we can be.
Stuff like “live simply, but passionately”, “laugh a lot“, “Never stop dancing” and “Believe that you’re young and beautiful now’ in thirty years you’ll know you were”. Learning to not make mountains out of molehills. And the topic about affirmations, where you revitalize your life with words.
She starts off January 1st with “Amazing Things Are Possible”. Moran says that instead of making the usual resolutions in the beginning of each new year, she suggests we should instead to start off the year with the world of possibilities, rather than pressuring yourself with resolutions. For instance, instead of writing down “I will workout every day”, you write a present statement like: “I’m fitter and healthier than I’ve been in years”
Victoria Moran also shares with us her knowledge of ancient Indian health care system of Ayurvedic medicine. Talking about consuming live food that can improve our vitality.
And end of each chapter of this book, “Younger By The Day: 365 Ways To Rejuvenate Your Body and Revitalize Your Spirit“, there is this simple and effective Rejuvenate Yourself With Action tip.
Some of you may say stuff like this, whimsical and unrealistic. Try to read it with an open heart and mind. There are lots of wisdom of truth in this life-enhancing book.
Get this book and read it. Follow whatever ideas you fancy from the book. Let Moran’s simple guide you on how to feel younger and more vibrant; both mentally and physically.
After reading Moran’s inspirational advice, some of you may lose weight, get a new sexier haircut and fall madly in love again.
No doubt this book is more for women, but most of Moran’s suggestions are workable for men as well. So if you are seeking for something uplifting and fun to add to your life, then this book is for you. It works for me though.
