We already know we could stand to lose a few pounds. But what about the other stuff?!
I know it’s the New Year but after some drunk and sober research, my friends and I did some polling and found things in common with people over 40 who feel 28!
And we couldn’t wait to share them with you!
1|Teach someone something that amazes them and comes easy for you.
2|Buy after market wheels for your car. Doesn’t have to be fancy, but customizing is a playful, youthful way to say you’re savvy.
3|Get some meaningful ink. There’s a reason so many people love tattoos. It can be therapeutic.
4|Get a professional full body massage if you’ve never had one. You’ll just feel amazing after.
5|Update your purse/wallet. If you’ve been using the same wallet or purse for a while, try it.
6|Go out to the sports bar during an MMA or Boxing match. Watching two guys duke it out is like real life video gaming. The crowd is always a nice little mix.
7|Go to a late movie premiere, like midnight. Staying up late just because is cute.
8|Only search for your age range on the dating app. Don’t forget to change this filter before they show you the million under 25 profiles.
9|If your s/o never wants to go out on the town with you, go alone or with friends.
10|Go to the gun range with a friend. There’s youth in powerful moments.
11|Get some over ear headphones. Not just music producers and basketball players can rock those!
12|Actually go out with your coworkers sometimes instead of always staying home.
13|Find a hangout where most of the regulars are older than you. You may absorb some knowledge as the youngest one there.
14|Buy some Nike Air Max. Even if you don’t work out, those kicks are exceptionally gorgeous and the color options are youthful.
15|Laugh more, worry less. Try anxiety/depression meds if you don’t feel balanced. It may change your life.
16|Have a garment in your wardrobe tailored to fit you just right. Search for patterns and have a seamstress create something just for you.
17|Schedule a professional photo shoot, either casual or for your business.
18|Find a new hobby.
19|Listen to more music.
20|Find an entertaining, like-minded podcast you enjoy.
21|Join a club. (book, fitness, bowling, parenting etc)
22|Enjoy some self love time or intimacy with a partner.
23|Forgive a friend or family member and let it be known.
24|Contact family members that you’ve been wanting to reach out to.
25|Send birthday and holiday cards. The spirit of giving incites a natural high.
26|Research an effective body cleanse and stick to it.
27|Schedule a barber/salon appointment to have your hair washed (enjoy the scalp massage) and styled.
28|Have your makeup professionally done.
