Do What Makes You Feel Good At Any Age! Friday 14 September, 2018

You deserve to look and feel great at any age. This means you should unapologetically make time to treat yourself because, as cliché as it may sound, you must love yourself first, and everything else will fall in line. Life is too short to deprive yourself of much-needed “me-time!” Doing something indulgent can have positive effects on your mental health and provide many other benefits. In this post, I’ll talk about things you can do for yourself to boost your confidence and your mood at different stages of your life.

Your 20s

You’re most likely finally living on your own. It can be scary and overwhelming at times not having your mom and dad around to do your laundry or check your oil. This is often the time that you realize just how much your parents do.

Balancing chores, work, school, and friends can be tough, so it is important to get organized and make schedules. Writing things down and allotting time to certain tasks—including meetings, errands, and even drinking water—will help you gain a little extra time for yourself. I recommend using this free time to go to the gym or take a walk. When you exercise, your body releases chemicals called endorphins, which trigger a positive feeling in the body.

Another thing I recommend doing is making time for dinner. No, not just takeout. Give yourself about 45 minutes or more to cook and eat something healthy and fulfilling. This practice of cooking your own food and sitting down at the table (not the couch) to eat it will help you be more mindful of what you’re putting in your body.

Your 30s

Many women begin to have children in their 30s—that means sleepless nights and less-than-glamorous mommy duties. As hard as it can be at this stage of life, it is extremely important to make time for yourself. A little pampering can do wonders.

Schedule a massage or a facial every so often. Little breaks like these can help you recharge more than you might think. Doing something nice for yourself is an easy way to hit your internal reset button and motivate you to keep a positive attitude during your hectic life.

Lack of sleep and generally not taking care of yourself not only can affect your health, but it also can affect the way you look. BOTOX® or other minimally invasive skin treatments can reverse those signs of premature aging and help you look your best even when you are running on empty.

Your 40s

By the time you are in your 40s, things have slowed down a bit. Most women are done, or at least close to being done, having children. That being said, I advise you to do things that make you feel youthful. 40 isn’t what it used to be! Take some time to travel, renovate a room in your house, or train for a marathon.

Since you’ll feel great, you should have the body and face to match. Laser skin treatments are an effective way to turn back the clock on your appearance, without needing surgery. After a short recovery time, your skin will look years younger.

If you are interested in getting rid of stubborn pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, liposuction can be a helpful solution. According to the board-certified plastic surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Center of the South, liposuction at their Atlanta, GA, practice is ideal for reducing fat in areas like the abdomen, back, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, calves, ankles, face, neck, and upper arms.

Your 50s & Up

Now that you’re in your 50s, you probably already have your routines and habits set in stone. That doesn’t mean you can’t shake things up every once in a while. Spend time with your family, not only your children, but also your siblings, nieces, nephews, aunts, and uncles, too. Having Sunday night barbeques and movie nights are a great way to build lasting bonds and make important memories.

Additionally, just because you are getting older doesn’t mean you need to look like it! There are plenty of options to maintain youthful-looking skin, such as dermal fillers and PRP treatments. You don’t need to go overboard, but a visit to your local board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist every so often can go a long way.

The main takeaway is that no matter how busy or stressful your life gets, making a little time each day to do something for yourself will help you live a happier life.
