So how do you look at aging? do you look at it with curiosity, fear, hate or love? I look at with mixed emotions. First of all, a part of me still crave youth, yes, sure, looks is a part of it. But not as much as other benefits of being young. The skin has lost it’s i moister and plumpness, well, lets face it, you need to put more effort in to it if you want to keep your skin healthy and glowing. Skin turnover is slowing down and need an extra caring hand, some dry brushing followed by some good moisturizer cream will go a long way.
Flexibility is another example, my body needs a lot more stretching (in my case Yoga Flow) to handle the not so charming stiffness that sneaked up on me last couple of years. Yes things are kind off going south as well, the body is changing and you need to rethink your overall body/mind strategy.
Now is the perfect time to kickstart new routine and work on areas that need extra care, such as belly, butt and arms (if you are a woman).
But with all that said, I love becoming older as it’s like entering a new phase ,where you have the confident and hopefully gain some self respect to finally show the world who you really are.
You can stand up tall and be proud of who you have become and the skin issues as well as the body issues is only a sign that you should give yourself more love and caring.. because you earned and deserve it. So before the world wake up from it’s isolations you now have time to really kickstart something good with focus on some self care.
Aging is a gift in more than one way, enjoy it, walk through it with confident and show the world the true YOU
Something is definitely wrong with me, well beside going through the isolation due to Corona, witch actually is going better than I ever expected. I actually enjoy working from home. But beside that I have some sort of unbalanced in my body.
I have felt it for quite awhile now, and I really need to fix as it is destroying my life. I really dislike going to the doctor, getting my blood taken just to get the information- you’re test came back in the normal range! Well Ok, but I don’t feel fine at all. Actually don’t want to eat medicine, so getting test done is just to figure out what is wrong, so I can help/heal myself.
I am a strong believer that your body heals itself, if given the right nutrition. But that requires finding out where the imbalance is.
As for now. I believe is has to do with my thyroid, and when having an issue with that, it can often lead to iron deficiency witch I know I have. So when trying to figure out how to assist this imbalance through Google ( yes I know) my body is really suffering. Or I should say I am really suffering and I don’t want to feel like this. It is not me. I am tired, my skin is super dry, I can’t think at all! hair loss, brittle nails total brain fog.Finishing one task takes forever, and if I include something like a job report (that usually takes under 1 hour) it takes forever. I feel dumb.
My energy is gone, I don’t recognize myself at all. And that is not an option for me. The body is such a complex machinery. So healing is on my agenda, through meditation, exercise, good nutrition and maybe if needed some medicine at least to get my self up to a normal level. . And self love ❤️
Please feel free to help me out if you have any tips.
I consider myself healthy and young at heart and soul, I managed to keep my weight trough-out my adult life. That is until now, when I am guessing I am going though menopause. Over night (it feels like) my skin went from being somewhat plump to loosing it’s softness (superdry) and plumpness.
Yes, I get it, hormones play a huge part of it but this is ridiculous. Not only did my skin loose all its moist in one day, the collagen just took off. The moist and collagen must have joined forces and decided to leave my body at the same time.. I use good produkts eat clean (most of the time) and only use good natural oils for massaging my body, to try do get some moist back.
But without luck, I take all kinds of supplements and collagen to try to help my body in the best way possible. But I still – what the he** happened? And most of the what can I do to change it? Does anyone have a clue?
Not ready to give up on my skin and body yet. So all you middle age women out there, do you have any tips? no hot flashes or anything else, but really dry and un-plumped skin. So any miracle cure out there that you can share?Dry bushing? what else?
