Happy Healthy Aging Month! Before you get all bummed out about aging, let me tell you this is your chance to change how you age. The older I get, the happier I feel. At this point in my life (in my 30s!), I know what foods my body needs for fuel and how to keep it active with exercise. I show it plenty of self care and compassion, too. So is it so strange that my subjective age, the age that I feel, is lower than the age I actually am? Nope. I truly believe that treating your body with kindness and respect helps you age gracefully. Get nourishment from nutrient-rich foods that will help your mind and eyes stay sharp. What you eat can even help your skin stay smooth and your hair stay shiny, too. How cool is that?!
