One of my favourite quotes about aging has been attributed to many great minds, including Benjamin Franklin and George Bernard Shaw.
We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.
I have made the choice to play more. It is easy for me to play more because I have two very active girls who are always asking us to join in with them. I have been trying to say “Yes!” instead of my normal “Ha-ha no thanks.” the kids have come to expect. Bike rides, swimming, tobogganing, running through the sprinkler, playing soccer are all things I try to say YES to more often. Looking goofy and having fun is way better than sitting on the sidelines any day. I know my girls will remember the fun we had and that is all the encouragement I need.
The commitment my family and I have made to eat better has had more positive effects than I bargained for. A very smart friend of mine said, “Eat better, feel better” and I am feeling the benefits. It is amazing the difference in my energy and mood. Eating , deciding on our meals for the week and meal prepping together has changed all of our eating habits for the better. This new routine has helped me to keep up – or at least TRY to – with my kids!
Another way to help me keep up with my kids is by adding supplements to my daily routine. I take my multivitamins, B12 and Iron like most women do, but I have recently added youtheory supplements to my regimen. The youtheory line is easy to find at Rexall here in Ontario. I tried the youtheory Collagen advanced formula that has type 1, type 2 and type 3 collagen. Youtheory Collagen is the only supplement on the market offering all 3 types in one tablet. Types 1 and 3 support hair, skin, nails, tendons and ligaments while type 2 supports joint health. Collagen is known to help fight the effect of aging. I need all the help I can get to keep up with my kids and keep feeling young for as long as possible.
I have been taking youtheory collagen for roughly 4 weeks now and I can say I have noticed some changes. I have to admit the first thing I had to do was get used to the dosage. The dosage is 6 pills a day but I quickly accustomed myself to the routine. I was pleasantly surprised to notice -fairly quickly- my nails are stronger. All of my nails are the same length and that is so rare for me as one will inevitably crack or break. I am reluctant to mention I have noticed a difference with my skin or joints. I believe change will come with time and may be less obvious to notice so early.
What do you do to keep that youthful feeling?
