This coming year sees me turning 33. People born in the year 2000 will turn 18. How is that even possible? Surely people born in 2000 are still babies!
My nan always used to say “you know you’re getting old when the Policemen are getting younger”. She was right. I now see Policemen and I’m convinced that they should still be in school, in reality they’re in their twenties.
I am officially old.
I’m hairier than I used to be. My metabolism definitely doesn’t work like it used to and I have no idea what songs are in the top ten. My idea of the perfect evening is a takeaway, pyjamas and an early night; I even considered adding a National Trust membership to my Christmas list!
It’s time to start looking after myself, in a bid to ensure that I age gracefully.
The signs of ageing are slowly creeping up on me and my body is changing. The fine lines started to appear around my eyes a few years back and my body aches in places that I never knew could ache.
In a bid to delay the ageing process and age more gracefully I plan to take a few simple steps, a few preventative measures.
The addition of a dog to our family means that I am now more active than ever before. This combined with healthy eating will be beneficial for the whole family.
I’ve recently discovered that I have a Vitamin D deficiency, I am taking supplements for this and hoping to have it under control sooner rather than later. Weakened bones and growing older aren’t an ideal combination.
Maybe 2018 will be the year that I finally find a good skin care regime and dabble more in self care, more early nights and more me-time.
Let’s not forget the less talked about issues when it comes to ageing as a female. Many people see these changes as embarrassing and tend not to talk about them. Body changes such as vaginal dryness, an issue that is simple to treat yet comes with great stigma. Vaginal Dryness Treatment is readily available in the form of moisturising gel and a refreshing mousse, which can also be used as a preventative measure.
So, here is to 2018. To eating healthy and keeping fit. To taking care of my body and taking preventative measures to ensure that I age gracefully.
Have you put any changes in place to ensure that you age gracefully?
