8 women share the best hacks that make life easier as you get olderBy Vika https://pictolic.com/en/article/8-women-share-the-best-hacks-that-make-life-easier-as-you-get-older
The younger you are, the more careless you tend to be. That's the way it should be. But spending time inevitably makes you care more about yourself, your mental well-being, and your past. From thinking about the people you spend time with to adding small rituals to your lifestyle like drinking more water or using face cream daily, there are many ways to improve yourself.
1. Preventive care. Visit your gynecologist, doctor, and dentist regularly. Get a Pap test, mammograms, etc. If you can get screened for skin cancer every couple of years, do it.
2. Wear earplugs in noisy places. Keep earplugs handy in case of unexpected loud situations. If you find yourself in a noisy situation without earplugs, do your best to leave. There are even earplugs that let sound through so you can hear important things.
3. Maintain your old friendships. The older you get, the more valuable it becomes to have friends who have known you at different stages of your life.
4. Drink less alcohol and coffee, drink more water.
5. You know who thinks you look great? You, in ten years. Accept and enjoy the body you have right here and now. Focus on all the things he can do and all the parts that work well and do no harm. This body, which you may be overly critical of now, will most likely be the body you will think about lovingly in the future, so you might as well be thinking about it now.
6. Don't just train, develop your physical balance. It will literally save a life at your age.
7. If you don't have the energy for a full workout, do the bare minimum to get your blood pumping, whether that's walking or a quick squat-push-squat cycle.
8. Live mindfully. Many people deal with daily stressful activities almost automatically. Reduce your time wandering around on TV shows and increase your time by asking questions and finding out your needs - meditate, eat better, budget instead of just making assumptions from month to month. Deciding on your personal ethics and values, setting boundaries, and working on your mental health is incredibly important. Challenge your beliefs and assumptions that you inherited from your parents.
