Five Ways To My Happy

posted by on 12/09/2013 | 15,728 comments (leave one of your own)

I am 37 and I don’t feel like this is old in any way. However, all of my face products are now labeled anti-aging. And a few weeks ago? I had to get reading glasses. READING GLASSES. I am 37 and it dawned on me that I was slowly going blind when I was standing in a store trying to read the list of ingredients on the back of my anti-aging product and holding the container out with my arm extended and squinting JUST LIKE MY MOTHER. In my defense, the font on the container was negative 6 and in the containers defense, HAHA YOU BE OLD.

I really, really like being in my thirties, but dammit if I’m hurtling faster than a speeding bullet towards my forties and there isn’t a thing I can do about it. Trust me, I’m not going down with out a fight. Just me and my two fists clutching my reading glasses and my face cream. I think Tina Fey probably offers up my most favorite advice regarding aging of all times in her book Bossypants.

Tina Fey quote

While the creams might help a bit, I believe that it helps to have a positive attitude towards aging. I feel like at any age, it is important to be happy. I know you can’t be happy 24/7, but being happier for me equals feeling good and looking good. And a little anti-aging concealer never hurt either. Here are five ways I make sure I am taking care of myself to guarantee I will live long enough to annoy my children even more in the future.

Five Ways To My Happy

1. Exercise. I know, so predictable, but I work from home and sit and sit and sit some more. Getting up and going for a hike is something I try to do at least four times a week and if I don’t exercise, I feel absolutely off kilter.

This is a big part of my second way to my happy.

2. Nature. I make a point to take my hikes during the magic hour: sunset. I am such a sucker for a sunset and that gorgeous light and I’ve got the photo collage to prove it.

3. Water. I am obsessed with my water filter pitcher. I drink a gallon of water a day because dehydration can make your skin look more dry and wrinkled and I am not interested in that, no thank you. Drinking an adequate amount of water daily is important for overall good health because water aids in digestion, circulation, and absorption. Plus, I need something to wash down #4.

4. Treat yourself. I will never, ever deny myself dessert of any kind. Ever. Life is too short.

5. Love. Love the ones you’re with. Simple.

Get Old is an initiative developed by Pfizer  to challenge people of all ages to rethink what it means to Get Old and take a more active role in their health and quality of life at every age.  Whether it’s through watching what you eat, physical exercise, spending time with family and friends or participating in an activity you’re passionate about — each of us has the power to decide for ourselves how we want to Get Old. It’s not just about living longer, but living better.

What are you doing to Get Old well? Tell us at GetOld.com and join the conversation on Twitter.com/GetOld and Facebook.com/GetOld.
