How to Feel Younger and More Energized

By CrossFit Coach | November 19 2017

With age comes wisdom, not to mention wrinkles, pains, and aches. Aging can be daunting, and most of us try to keep up a younger appearance. While it’s impossible to turn back the clock, you can still focus your efforts on making yourself feel young again. By changing your habits and diet you can bring your body into good shape and bounce back faster from illness as well as the effects of aging.

Feeling and looking young again doesn’t have to involve plastic surgery or drastic makeovers. By taking a few simple steps and introducing some positive habits into your life, you can potentially add years.

Go to Sleep Early

Getting enough sleep is the best way to feel younger, no matter your age. For the most part, people need about eight hours of sleep a night, though most of us never get enough rest. With a few consecutive weeks of proper sleep, you will find your body looks and feels more revitalized since your body has had more time to recover and repair itself. As you stick to a consistent sleeping schedule, those dark circles under your eyes will vanish, and you will find that you have more energy than you did before. Similarly, pairing a great sleeping schedule with a good skincare routine will amplify the effects of getting a good night’s rest.

 

Eat Better Food

Once you’ve gotten past your poor sleeping habits, it’s time to turn your attention to eating food more nutritionally beneficial to your body. Load up on vegetables and fruits, as well as proper nutrients and dietary supplements. In addition to curating the right diet, it is essential to focus on drinking more water. Since 60% of the human body is made up of water, the best way to keep your body as youthful as possible is to keep yourself hydrated.

 

Workout More

It is never too late to integrate more exercise into your lifestyle. People that invest in their physical fitness can easily turn back the clock. Having a consistent and effective workout routine will allow you to maintain the mobility and strength of your younger years. A great way to work fitness into your lifestyle can be to join a gym, sign up with a local crossfit gym, or just make time to workout on your own.

 

Focus on Positivity

Keeping a positive perspective throughout your life isn’t an easy task, but it is important if you hope to feel younger and healthier. Being a positive person does not mean you will be happy all the time— rather, choosing to focus on positivity will allow you to be more grateful and help to steer you away from the draining negativity of depression.

 

As you continue your search for a way to bring back your youth, keep these things in mind: never underestimate a good night’s rest, be picky about what goes into your body, make it point to be more fitness-oriented, and keep positivity a priority in your life. With just a few lifestyle changes, you will find that you feel like a completely different, and younger, version of yourself.

Any goal worth completing is not going to be easy. If you think living your dreams is simple and you are entitled to it, you will never achieve it. The first step is dedicating yourself to a goal and knowing that it will not be easy to complete it, but it will be worth it.
