Is 40 the new 30? When most people hit 40, they know what they want with life. A lot of people at this age may have children what are already grown. It is a great time to make plans and to move somewhere where you really want to be. Why can’t you have the life you have always dreamed of.

Once you hit 40 you can say that you have hit middle-aged, but at the end of the day-age is just a number and one thing we gain is being wiser. According to research, being happy with your appearance is the key to feeling young.

Despite the stigma of woman ageing, we think that, like fine wine, a woman truly does get better with age. Look at Halle Berry at 51 years of age, and a mother of two has always been renowned for her stunning looks and talent.

Staying fit and healthy in your 40’s is harder than when you were younger as your metabolism slows down and lower oestrogen levels can cause insulin sensitivity, which can make you want to eat unhealthy foods.

So this is the perfect time to get your fitness levels in check. Set small goals, to begin with, and make it fun, so you don’t lose interest in it. Think about the reasons for getting fit and keeping fit.

If you single and in your 40’s, you have more free time to put into your activities and self-care.
Being single means you can please yourself, arrange who you want to see and have meaningful conversations with as by now at this age you don’t want to waste your time with someone when you know it won’t be going anywhere.

Your happiness does not depend on someone else, create your pleasure and don’t settle just because you feel lonely, so set your standards high, love yourself. Work on your personal growth and discover new things. I have always been a believer of this saying “When people show you who they are, believe them”. At this age, you don’t have time for nonsense, so don’t be giving second chances just move on and don’t look back.

Learning to love your own company, everyone is unique in their way, and it is ok to watch a movie indoors in your pj’s on a Saturday night by yourself and demolish a bar of chocolate and popcorn. Treat yourself with kindness and respect have a pamper day as if you are feeling good on the inside, you be happier on the outside.

Making sure your no one priority is being stressed free and get at least 8-9 hours of sleep a night. Why does it happen? Changes in your brain are mainly responsible for your increased sleep troubles. As you get older, the neurological receptors that connect with sleep-signalling chemicals weaken, meaning your brain has a harder time figuring out when you’re actually tired.

Live life to the full, live every day on a fresh new start, don’t be held back by what happened yesterday, the week before, your time is limited on earth so don’t waste it. Read up on the law of attraction if you are not familiar with it.

When you focus on the negativity of being single, you are only putting negative vibrations out there to everyone. Focus on your health and being alive and the right things and your vibration will change to being positive.
