We’re all getting older and there’s nothing we can do about that, I just celebrated my 45th birthday! Here’s some thing we can do to help us feel healthier and more youthful, too.

  • Get outside and exercise – It’ll make you feel more productive, get your endorphins flowing and aerobic exercise can boost your metabolism, too.
  • Smile more often – Research has found smiling can bring all kinds of benefits, including lifting your mood, lowering stress and blood pressure, and even make your lifespan longer.
  • Adopt or foster a new pet – Having a pet can help people live a happier, healthier lifestyle and having a sense of purpose can make them feel younger, too.
  • Reconnect with old friends – Reaching out to friends you’ve lost touch with from your past can mentally set back the clock and remind you what it felt like to be young.
  • Be intimate with your partner – According to one study, having sex can make you look and feel seven years younger by activating feel-good chemicals and natural painkillers in the body, easing anxiety, and helping older people sleep better.
  • Listen to the music you loved as a teenager – Play songs from your youth to trigger memories of your younger days. Watching one of your favorite old movies can also take you back to your good old days mentally.
