Life Begins At 30; Or, How To Feel Youthful When Society Says You’re Over The Hill

If you’re approaching – or already in – your thirties, then you’re probably getting pretty sick of hearing that you’re “over the hill,” or some such nonsense. In this day and age, when people are routinely living into their nineties and beyond, to consider thirty old is a crime. If you can be young when you’re 65, you can for sure be young when you’re 30! Below, we take a look at a few ways you can fight back against the march of time.

Honing In On Your Crafts

Youth isn’t solely determined by your age, or how energetic your body feels; it’s determined by passion, and specifically how much of it you have in your life. When you’re young, you don’t know anything. You’re just floundering around, trying a bit of this, a bit of that. By the time you reach your thirties, you’ll have myriad interests and passions under your belt, and you’ll be becoming something of a specialist! If you can get all energetic and lit up when you’re doing an activity you love, then you cease to be any age; you’re just living in the moment!

Taking Care of the Body

Of course, we can’t always be doing the things we love. And the truth is, no matter what else we have going on in our lives, the easiest way to feel youthful is by looking youthful. Unfortunately, our body didn’t get the memo, and now we’re looking every bit our age. However, you don’t just have to accept this. There are ways you can reclaim your years. If you’re losing your hair, then a scalp micropigmentation clinic can restore your hairline for a more youthful look. Use lotions, especially when you’re in the sun, to keep your skin fresh. Also, don’t underestimate the impact of hitting the gym; it’ll give you the energy you need to take life in your stride.

Finding Space For Fun

There comes a time when just having fun becomes something that’s vaguely shameful to adults. But we say, let’s ignore the ‘no fun’ rule altogether! If you want to swing on the swing set, or run through the fields, or do any of the other things you used to do when you were younger, then go ahead and do it. If you have fun in your life, then you’ll never feel old.

Don’t Become “Mr. No”

People are prone to getting stuck in their ways. By the time they’re in their late twenties, they think they know what they like and don’t like, and stick to these rules. The truth is, you know only slightly more than you did when you were eighteen; there’s still so much to learn! If you find yourself saying no more than you say yes, it’s time to rethink your answers and open yourself up to more possibilities.

Remember: Attitude is All

Finally, never forget that attitude is what determines how old you are, not your age. Have a youthful, energetic approach to life, and that’s just what you’ll be!
