Instead during this time people must start listening to the needs of their bodies and should start avoiding the things that might be harmful for them.

The mantra to happy and blissful life in the 40s is to eat healthy food and exercise on a regular basis. Some blame the growing age for the slow reflexes but trust me there is nothing to be blamed for your own health. If something needs to be blamed for your poor health condition in the growing age then it is your negligence topped up with your monotonous and dull lifestyle.

The author of the book Midlife: Look Younger, Live Longer, Feel Better written by Dr. Muir Gray has made a very relatable statement by calling the 40s the sandwich generation in which people are juggling between parenting, aging and careers. Although it is a crucial time for anybody’s career as he/she is at the peak but still the monotonous and boring lifestyle decreases the quality of life of anybody.

During your 40s your body requires more attention and care. Eating properly, selectively, relaxing and sleeping on time needs to be done. A disciplined lifestyle is really very important with the growing age. Good food, daily exercise with the right attitude helps you to feel younger.

Although it is impossible to slow down the aging process but if one develops the right attitude and follows a few crucial steps then you will feel younger in fact anybody will feel younger and more energetic.
