Being in your 30s is not an easy task. Everybody expects you to figure out stuff by the time you are in your thirties but only you know how you feel. You love to spend your weekends watching Netflix. Dining outside seems daunting and you would rather order it online and be done with it. You are too young to be called an uncle or aunty or too old to dance the night away with your friends in a drunken stupor. Not to mention the saggy skin, crow’s feet and expression marks that are freaking you out and have you screaming inside!
While we can’t help you with a Benjamin Button kind of a makeover, here are a few tips to go all Anil Kapoor on your age!
Stay young with asanas
The magical foundation of youth has always been in your backyard and you have been looking for it elsewhere! All you need is to take out 20 minutes of your time for 3-days in a week! Yoga stimulates blood circulation in the body and reduces stiffness in the body. Aim for sweating as you do the asanas to open pores and flush the toxins away. Cease the age with simple and as easy as 1-2-3 Yoga asanas like neck stretching, Dhanurasna, Adhu Mukha Shavasana and Simhasana.
Meditate your ageing away
Stress is the number one cause of premature ageing. It speeds up the ageing of your cells and blocks the renewal. The only healthy way to counter your day-to-day stress is to meditate daily and take 200 hours yoga teacher training in Rishikesh, India. A 15-minute session of guided meditation can help you feel fresh and energised along with radiating skin! Kapalbhati pranayama not only puts a leash on sagging tummy skin but also improves your complexion.
Mind your dietary habits
You are what you eat. If you want to stay young forever, watch out what you eat when you feel those hunger pangs. Ditch that snack box for a handful of nuts. Most of the times, we mistake dehydration for hunger. When you find your stomach rumbling for some snacks even after a full lunch or dinner, make it a point to head to the kitchen for a drink of water. Start your day with warm water and lemon. Lemon is a nature’s miracle drug. It cleanses your body and promotes weight loss while aiding to the digestion.
Stay gorgeous inside out
Beauty can’t be skin deep and if it does, it is a deception. You wouldn’t want that for yourself, would you? You can’t remain beautiful if you are jealous of your neighbour. You need to work on your inner beauty first in order to attain outer beauty. Once you have uncomplicated your life, the glow and beauty of your skin will speak for itself.
Train yourself for yogic lifestyle
You don’t have to be a recluse to reverse the age clock. By including some simple tips in your day-to-day life like not eating after 7 PM, regular intermittent fasting and a kind heart, you will not only feel calm but also passionate about your life.Once you have gained your confidence back, it is just a matter of time for others to find you beautiful. It is not that you will have to let go of your social life but there is no harm in eyeing for a balance between the two.
Yoga gives you both- a clear mind and clear skin. It addresses the stress that is wreaking havoc on your body and its functions. Once you are feeling at ease and calm, shift your attention to other problems, which everybody wants you to fix, while feeling confident and charming in your own skin!
