Aging Has It’s Rough Moments

By Linda Franklin –

 Aging Has It's Rough Moments by Linda Franklin The Real Cougar WomanIs it true that once we hit 45 looking in the mirror becomes painful? I guess most of us would agree that it’s hard to come to terms with getting older and our faces only confirm what we feel inside.

In a survey of 3,000 people done in Briton, they found just a handful of middle-aged people checked their reflection more than once a day. I find that hard to believe don’t you?  Even though I may not always like what I see looking back at me, I am compelled to check myself out when I pass by a mirror.  For me that likely to be more than 10 times a day.

They found that women with dyed blonde hair are four times as likely to check themselves out in their mirrors at home (or in store windows) than those with grey hair.

Here’s what one woman had to say.  “We don’t like what the aging process does to us and by the time we reach 45 we are no longer, as far as most are concerned, looking our best. Those pesky mirrors just remind us that we’re not getting any younger and so we tend to look into them far less.”

Well I don’t know what’s going on in Briton but here in the good old USA women are looking fabulous well into their 70’s.  It doesn’t happen magically – it involves putting many different pieces of the anti-aging puzzle in place.  Better diet, regular exercise, bio-identical hormones, a good skin care regime, a flattering wardrobe, regular trips to the hair salon, lots of sex and of course happiness paired with a great attitude.

So the next time you pass a mirror and take a look at yourself stick out your chest, smile and say to yourself I’m fabulous –  “bring it on”.

The Real Cougar Woman is a 5-carat diamond who knows the importance of taking care of her health, beauty, relationships, finances and spirituality. Linda Franklin says,”there is no stopping a woman who has a strong belief system, passion and a dream. All things are possible”. Linda’s book, Don’t Ever Call Me Ma’am helps women of all ages tap into their power and live life to the fullest.
