8 Ways to Keep on Feeling Young as You Age


Just how difficult is it to grow old? The answer to that question depends on who you ask. That’s because many Americans have adopted several incredibly useful strategies that help them feel young, both mentally and physically.

In case you’re wondering, few of these strategies involved using wrinkle creams, getting plastic surgery, or injecting botox into various parts of the body. Generally speaking, the key seems to be eating well, stay active, and keeping a positive outlook about the present and the future…

1. Set Healthy Goals

Setting clear goals for yourself can be an important part of establishing a productive daily regimen that will make you feel physically and mentally fulfilled. In contrast, living life in a wayward, goal-free manner could leave you feel lost.

That’s why it’s important to set goals as you age. For example, focus on finishing the bike race coming up later this summer. Resolve yourself to finish writing that book you’ve been working on. Re-adopt a long forgotten hobby. Or take a course at the local college. In the end, such goals will help you stay positive and looking forward to the future.
