No matter how old you are, you can stay young at heart for as long as you want to. The biological clock may not stop ticking but you can forget about your age and enjoy life along with the many blessings that come your way.

Here are some things that you can do stay and feel young at heart. 

1. Be Active

Children are always full of energy and they do not tire easily. Having an active lifestyle will also make you feel young since your body will stay in good shape and you will not notice the limitation that old age often brings.


2. Be Spontaneous

Live for the moment and stop worrying too much about what will happen in the future. The present offers so many joys for you to grab. If you let them pass, it will become part of the past and you may end up feeling sorry.

3. Spend More Time Around Children

Children find happiness even in the simplest pleasures. You can forget all your worries and cares when you mingle with children and share in the pure joy they bring every time.

4. Smile and Laugh Often

Be a person who is always ready to flash a smile and share a laugh or two with others. Smiles and laughter cost nothing but they will result in a delightful feeling that brings happiness to the heart.

5. Quit Grumbling and Complaining

Those who spend time picking faults often feel weary and old. If you complain about all the flaws in the world, you will not see the beauty despite the imperfections. So enjoy life and avoid dwelling on negative feelings.

6. Don’t Be Ashamed of Your Age

Many people feel bad when asked how old they are. The real number is not something that you should be ashamed about. Be proud of your age and the wisdom that comes along with it!

7. Treat and Pamper Yourself

Buy a new outfit, get a makeover or pamper yourself with a massage. See to your own needs from time to time and the boost in your spirit will cause an inner glow.

8. Find a passion

Finding an activity that you are passionate about gets you out of bed in the morning with enthusiasm. This passion could be anything from meaningful work to an interesting hobby, a new study, volunteer work or a favorite cause.

9. Enjoy Nature and the Outdoors

Sunshine and fresh air are the best ways to rejuvenate the body. Enjoy the beauty of the world around you and notice the boost in your mood.

10. Fall in Love or rekindle your romance

Falling in love can make you feel like you are back to being a teenager once again. Romance can make you feel so young and alive inside. Even if you have been in a relationship for a long time, try to create romance with a special diner, a surprise or a special outing.
