Boomer Beauty and Wellness
As we age, it is important to our well-being to feel good about ourselves. That means taking care of one's self, both physically and mentally. Diet, exercise, mental agility, and beauty products all play a role in enhancing the enjoyment of Fall and Winter of our lives.
Baby Boomer Beauty
A wealth of beauty products exist for women...and men... to make Boomers look and feel younger. These range from anti-aging creams to using face lift tape for a temporary fix and products like Rogaine that re-grow lost hair. The one suggestion we offer here is to be sure to use sunscreen when doing outside activities. Remember, you are at an age where the cumulative effects of sun exposure - wrinkles and skin cancer - start to appear.
With a little online research, you will discover that many skin care, hair and cosmetic products can be purchased at a discount.
Baby Boomer Exercise & Fitness
Exercise daily. This will add years to your life. You don't have to go to the gym everyday to get sufficient exercise. Take a walk, jog or go for a bike ride. Use stairs instead of elevators. Walk the golf course instead of riding. Doctors recommend that you work up to one hour daily of exercise. Once you alter your lifestyle to include daily exercise, you will be pleased to see how much more energy you have!
Take vitamins. It is hard to satisfy daily vitamin requirements from food and drink alone. Taking a daily multivitamin will help to overcome any deficiency.
Baby Boomer Aging
Aging is state of mind as much as anything else. Some Boomers age well and keep their minds sharp because they remain active and engaged. Other languish and succumb to illness or mental diseases, often leading to suicide. Here is what you can do to "age well:"
Exercise your mind. The more you use your mind - whether through work, puzzles, or whatever - the better your odds of avoiding diseases like dementia and Alzheimer's.
Enjoy a loving relationship. Studies have show that Boomers who are in a loving relationship have a better quality of life and live longer. And besides, doing things is always more fun when you have someone to share it with.
