The one constant thing in our life is change. We cannot avoid it and the more we resist change the tougher our life becomes. It’s not even a question of if you’re changing; it’s a question of in which direction are you changing.
We help you getting off to a excellent start with some cool tips that will make your life more accomplished, more goals-oriented and more cheerful. Here are 21 life changing things to help keep you pointed in the right direction.
1. Correct your course
If you haven’t already, take a moment to decide if how you live your life in a way that complements who you are today. It’s easy to get stuck in routines without realizing that they no longer deliver like they used to. Are you fulfilled in your job, with your romantic life, your friendships? Is it time to re-evaluate?
2. Visit your dream destination
Being in your 40s means being established enough to afford the things you’ve always wanted to do — and being young enough to enjoy them. This is the time that you can hang on Ipanema Veach, look good, eat well and stay at a nice place.
3. Dress your age
Reaching the fifth decade leads some of us to cling onto our youth by dressing younger. Bad move. “Dressing younger only serves to highlight your advancing years,” says Alex Wilcox, co-proprietor of New York men’s clothing store Lord Willy’s.
4. Train for something
It needn’t be an Ironman, but having a target that isn’t tied to your career or finances is an excellent way to stay vital.
5. Travel first class, or Uber a private plane
Flying internationally? The first-class experience is certain to make every coach flight from here on out a living hell, but sitting up front is the only way to see what all the fuss is about. LAX to Melbourne, Australia on Qantas could set you back almost $15,000.
6. Hire a personal stylist
Your 20s were a time to experiment with personal style. Your 30s were a time to get comfortable with your look while making important life moves.
7. Eat a 3-Star Michelin Restaurant
Chefs consider a 3-star rating from Michelin to be the holy grail, white whale and pot of gold combined.
8. Flirt with confidence
A funny thing happens when you get to 40. You start to feel very comfortable in your own skin (especially if you adhere to the advice contained within this handy list.
9. Treat your parents
We’re not talking about a dinner here or there. Send your folks on a trip somewhere they’ve always wanted to go while they’re still able to fully enjoy it. You’ll never regret it.
10. Go on an African safari
Sure, you’ll see elephants, lions, leopards, buffalo, giraffes, hyenas, gazelles, etc. But even if you’re from Dubuque, Poughkeepsie or Paducah, you’ll feel an eerie sense of homecoming on the savanna.
11. Do that thing you used to love
When you were younger, you loved playing basketball. Or you jammed in a band. Or you went snowboarding every year.
12. Have the best sex of your life
Shedding shame can help you overcome self-consciousness.Empathy is a sexual communication superpower.
13. Make some new friends
Most of us make lifelong friends in young adulthood. We’re out in the world, we’re doing stuff, we’re full of piss and vinegar, so it stands to reason.
14. Go on the Zero Belly Diet
The average man gains five pounds every decade after 35. But the best way to prevent that isn’t through starvation or deprivation.
15. Preserve and increase your muscle mass
Prepare to be that 81-year-old guy who runs marathons. Your 40s are the time to start. After the age of 40, inactive people lose 3 to 5% of their muscle mass every decade.
16. Drink great whiskey
How many features have you seen on the news about octogenarians, or people who’ve crossed the century mark, who attribute their long life to good whiskey? It’s no coincidence: Studies show that people who drink moderately live longer than those who don’t, and have lower rates of heart disease, diabetes and stroke than teetotalers.
17. Don’t look back
Heroin. Weed. Crack. In the War on Drugs, no one’s talking about the one that hooks most fortysomethings: nostalgia. Commonly found on YouTube, in toy stores and at the movie theater, it offers a temporary hit of comfort and security.
18. Use social media
Tech gets younger as you get older. To quote Gary Vaynerchuk, live in the white spaces where the audience lives. Learn Snapchat
19. Grow your mind
Although the idea of brain exercise is controversial, it can’t hurt, and it’s easy to do. Neurobiologist Lawrence C. Katz, PhD, author of Keep Your Brain Alive, suggests mixing up your routine with actions that engage more than one of your senses simultaneously, which strengthens the connections between areas of the brain.
20. Get naked more
Science says sleeping naked can lead to a longer life. (Just keep your boxers by the bed and a lock on your bedroom door.) According to studies, sleeping naked can boost your levels of anti-aging and growth hormones.
21. Have a cheat event
We’re not talking about sexual fidelity, perv. Just as having a cheat day once a week makes your workout and diet plan more efficient and successful.
