The popular belief is that youth ends at 35 and middle age starts right after that. Your age shouldn’t discourage you, and you need to remember this: your good thoughts and young spirit are ageless – the best is yet to come! The middle age period is only a state of mind. You can continue doing the same things you did before. Sometimes, you will have some bad thoughts, it’s normal. You may think that you don’t have enough time for yourself, but it is all in your head. The truth is, you can finally be the real you!
Ageing shouldn’t make you feel old. The best thing about your age: you are old enough to live smart and young enough to have fun while doing that. They say, sex is best during middle age (really, try it, don’t hesitate). There are a lot more activities that you can include in your routines, to make you feel ageless.
You will have more time for everything
Is one of the signs of ageing that you are sleepy early, even though you were a night-owl before? No worries! After you wake up, you will have enough time to drink your coffee, go to work, take a walk or socialize with your friends. Ageing is not only about the wrinkles on your face. It makes you smarter and wiser, and as we already know, wisdom is ageless. You can teach your children to embrace life and enjoy every moment of it or share your experience and wisdom with them. Also, you still have so much to learn and to be even wiser in the future.
Don’t stop your usual activities
This means that you can go out, meet with your friends, exercise, dance, and fall in love… literally everything. Use this age to enjoy your life. You have enough experience to decide which work offer is better to accept or which food to avoid in order to stay in good health. Never mind your age, you can still go for long walks, swimming or shopping – everything that makes you feel comfortable, and happy too.
Take care of your health condition
After you hit 35, it is very normal to start worrying about how you look or about the white hair on your head, but this shouldn’t let you down. Just visit your doctor to control if there are any changes in your general health condition and use high-quality cosmetics. Do things that will boost your happiness. If you are happy, you can better take care of your health condition.
Let children be independent
If your free time doesn’t revolve around children and family – you did a great job! That means they are independent enough and you can enjoy the time in your life, knowing that you have fewer responsibilities and much more freedom. The greatest joy in life is when you see your children successful and happy, knowing that you put a lot of efforts to help them achieve that. Yes, you can still be their biggest support, but the less they are reaching to you, the more time you have for yourself and no one else but yourself.
Don’t let numbers discourage you
It’s normal to be afraid of the number in your age, but your life experience has already made you stronger and smarter, and you should appreciate that. You will see how naturally your happiness will be caused by the little things. That can be a phone call from your children or a flower from your partner or a quick coffee with some friends from school or college. The best thing? You will have more time for your old parents and you will appreciate every second with them.
Value your middle age experience
Your experience means a lot to the world around you. Experience and wisdom are ageless characteristics for every woman your age. You can share it with your kids or with younger colleagues. You will understand the importance of the moment and would not let unimportant things ruin your day. During middle age, you can be who you were meant to be – the best version of you. So, smile at your age and be thankful that you have the chance to be valued.
Remember, you are beautiful!
Something you have to remember is that real women have flaws. You don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful.

Beauty is what comes from within, so don’t spend hours in front of a mirror looking for flaws, look in the mirror and see how beautiful you truly are.
The last and most important thing is – the more you worry, the more it will show on your skin. Sit back, relax, nothing is under control and you should be okay with that. If you worry about little, or even big things, it will take away your beauty. Peace is a state of mind, get in touch with your inner self and be happy.
If you think that so-called middle age crisis has already started, you should try to change your general opinion about ageing. Don’t think about yourself as an older person! You are just as young as you were, but with years of experience. The only thing that will make you feel old is your thoughts that you are getting older. Stop doing that, so you can enjoy your best years. Changing your state of mind about ageing will make you feel ageless. There are no age boundaries, until you feel comfortable doing what you are doing. Keep this advice as your secret, because you deserve that.
