Top 7 Tips You Can Use to Boost Your Youth and Connect to Your Positive Inner Calm NOW

"You are never too old to become younger."

Mae West

… Today my friend I’m going to write about the ways we can control aging. It is a sensitive topic to many people as our society presents every single day the importance of staying young no matter what is your age. However no one tells us how to achieve it. It is not about plastic surgery, however this can help ๐Ÿ˜‰ …but a lot of power is in what and how we think about aging. Have you heard the statement: “You are as old as you feel”? There is a lot of truth in it. I will be 42 this year and I feel younger now than I felt when I was 25. The older we get the more we notice how people age differently…But where is that difference? It is about the attitude.

…There are however a lot of different factors about the attitude and today is not my aim to list them all. I just want to give you some easy tips to boost your youth and connect to your positive inner calm.

Growing old is a habit, people live their life and feel good about their age, and then they reach a certain point where they begin to think they must be growing old. As soon as we start thinking this way we start to see proof everywhere we look. We begin to talk about it; we look for it in others and see it too. The more we look for something the more we find confirmation of it, the more we find confirmation, the more we believe in it and as soon as we believe – we become.

Have you met people, who are old by age, but at the same time the attitude is young and you feel the eager energy of youth and strength radiating from them? …My thoughts are – we don’t age, we become wiser, more experienced, happier, and more content. By changing our thinking habits our appearance and expressions change.

You are eternal being and yes your body ages and you will lose it eventually, however there is nothing that can stop you from feeling young and strong. Think Youth and you stay young.

Top 7 Tips You Can Use to Boost and Keep Your Youth.

#1 Keep growing. You are never too old to learn something new. Once you stop discovering, experimenting and learning, this is when you start aging. Keep growing and you will keep young. A new idea will make you young, develop it and it will develop you. Never talk about being too old to grow and learn. Open yourself up to new beginnings. Look around and see what it is you want to learn. It can be very simple things like learn how to swim, how to paint, sing, dance. Never stop growing.

#2 Train your mind. The mind can be very lazy, just observing what is and confirming the reality and delivering exactly the same again and again. The worst enemy of aging is stress, worry and fear. The poisons of your body are anger, hate, jealousy, mental turmoil, excitement, selfishness… Ignore reality – if it lets you down. Think health, harmony, beauty and youth. Make your mind beautiful. I have written many articles about positive thinking – it really works, however reading is not what can help you my friend, the experience and using techniques is what can transform you beyond imagination.

#3 Youth is Love. Learn to love what you do. Do your work with love and joy. Work is a law of youth. Inertia is death and inaction is decay. When you come to love your work you will not exhaust yourself in it, you will not tire your brain and body with its friction, because you will work with selfish purposes, but work to enrich the world. “Love is the fulfilling of the law of youth.”

#4 Have Fun. If you don’t have fun in your life you don’t have life. Your life becomes lifeless. Good cheer is the tonic of youth. If you are not able to laugh at something, just start laughing at nothing! Cultivate an infectious laugh and joy. There is a funny side of everything in this world. Good cheer attracts good people. Go to sleep with a smile on your face and you will wake up with it. Stop rehearsing your grief, you will only enlarge it. Cheer someone up, encourage, help and you will find cheer for yourself.

#5 Be Active. You are never too old to be active and keep your body an a good condition. What I noticed in people over the years, especially those who practise yoga how young and flexible they are. The youth is measured by flexibility of your body. When children are small they don’t need yoga, as they are so flexible. The older we get the less flexible we become, so to reverse the aging is to increase flexibility. I’m not suggesting that yoga is the only way, however I find it incredibly effective for myself.

#6 Use Affirmations. I do it often. It can sound weird, however it works very well. The only mistake people do when using affirmations, they don’t put the thought and feeling into it. You can chose and use the one which will make you feel young. You can even state the age, let’s say you are 35 and want to look and feel 10 years younger say: “I am 25.” It is simple and when you remember how young did you feel when you were 25, you can also get that feeling… Mind is very interesting and flexible; as soon as your subconscious mind believes in it as being the truth it will start to deliver the results.

#7 Be Happy about your Age. Just accept it and be proud of your age. You wouldn’t become the person you are now without those experiences you had. You had many lessons in your life, which made your personality much richer. There is no point to look back, however you are much smarter and wiser now and now you know you are able to create and live your life intentionally. You can’t have regrets as there is so much more in the future than it was in the past, now that you know how you can train your mind, grow and evolve endlessly…

…Just being on this site and reading it shows how inquisitive you are my friend – this is one of the best signs of being young. You are looking for more confirmation to what you already know deep down and you are finding it… the more you look for truth the more doors will open for you.

Let’s grow young together my friend!

This is one of those articles you need to print off and keep on your bulletin board. Every day we grow a little older whether we like it or not. I don’t like it, but I want to grow old “gracefully.” The things you pointed out will help me to do that. I love the line “You are never too old to become younger.” Thank you, for sharing such wonderful words to live by! Hugs to you.

Solvita, what a well written article. 42 years young – that is so…. young! My youngest child will be 41 in January 2012 – he seems just a kid in my mind yet he is a responsible man with a family. My last birthday was 68 years but do you know what? I do not feel like I am 68 and certainly put myself in the active category of being in my late 60s. My hubby has a saying, “You are only as old as you act!”

I actually enjoy certain aspects of getting older. People treat you different, more respect.
I am actually in better condition because of all the endurance training and events I complete in. I used to do football, power lifting, and track, but I did not have the fitness level I do now.
Great post Solvita!

Thanks for the reminder…there is nothing better than laughter…when the hot yoga room is TOO hot, when my online banking won’t work, when I get lost in the abyss of “what am I doing here?” a laugh shakes it all off. Thanks, thanks…I needed that today

Reply

Solvita Bennett September 30, 2011

Yes Rhonda laugh can shake off everything, when we are able to laugh at nothing it is just a confirmation that we live lives we are supposed to live…miserable people attract more misery into their lives without even understanding the cause of it…

Great post Solvita. I especially agree with #4 – laughter/fun is the world’s best medicine. I try to find something funny in most things – that isn’t too difficult to do – and laugh about it. The alternative is to cry, right? You are still a baby at 42 – talk to me when you hit the half a century mark and catch up to me :) Another suggestion? Hair dye!

Yes Julie ~ looking forward to the half of century ~ love my age what ever it is going to be! Hair dye is a great suggestion by the way! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Training the mind is the one I’m focusing on these days. We have been – are – and will be forever influenced by the world around us. What I’m trying to achieve is letting my spirit filter what my mind & soul should accept as truth and throw the rest out as the garbage that it is… Timely article, Solvita! x0x

Love this topic Solvita. You surely don’t look that young to be 42 soon. Wow, you had me fooled. Aging is like a state of mind–some just stop growing their mind, body, spirituality so they are stuck. I am stuck at 18 even if don’t look it I feel great. A positive attitude surely helps. Points #4 and 5 sing to me loud. Thanks for sharing this great article.

Solvita Bennett October 3, 2011

Great Carol, that is so true about the attitude…18 – wow… it is amazing to feel as young as that!! Thanks for your comment!
