Why we human beings are afraid of becoming old? In another word, we want to stay young as long as possible. We are so looking forward to growing up when we were children, but start to worry about aging after 30. Ladies will buy expensive cosmetic to maintain a good condition of the skin, spend money on SPA to keep the body in a healthy status. Men as well, there are more and more anti-aging products for men. Why? Because it has a big potential to share the market!
What’s the difference between the young and the old? Overall speaking, there are three signs of growing old.
First, you might lose you courage or forget how to do something crazy or dareful, because you think you are no longer young.
Second, you become very sensitive to hear whoever asks for your age. because you don’t want them to judge you from the age.
Third, you start to have some negative thoughts towards the surroundings, forget your original aspiration on enjoying the life instead of concerning about the bad consequences, the family, the mortgage, the future of your kids, the position in the company, the salary and so on. You finish your work, become tired, just wish you could have a rest, go to bed just to wake up in the next morning to repeat the same tiring and boring routine, day after day.
Growing old is a natural part of our life, it wont be so intimidating if we focus on enjoying the journey but not the result.

Here I concluded and share with you some useful tips:
1, forget the non-essential numbers (for example the age) in your life, remember those important dates such as birthdays of your beloved and yourself, anniversary days.
2, laugh often, long and loud. Always maintain a positive outlook towards life. Once, a very old friend of mine told me, btw, we are in distance, when we are in the phone call, people in the other side can feel your friendly and positive moods even you are in distance. This is for friendship. In terms of aging, it works in the same way, smile is the best medicine. You don’t stop laughing because you become old; you become old because you stop laughing.
3, be alive when you are alive. Keep moving helps you build a younger outlook. According to a latest report by Mayo clinic health, fitness, strength and flexibility don’t fade away with age, with the lazy lifestyle you choose. Just imagine, you do exercise frequently, lead a regular and healthy life, you have younger organs, younger nervous system, and young outlook to the world, and definitely you will have a younger appearance. Being young is something from inside out.
4, be with young people as often as possible, keep yourself update to the new things and knowledge. Be young from the heart! if you are hesitating about doing something you have it in your mind for a long time, but you don’t do it because it’s too exciting, crazy or too difficult, or you are too busy or too lazy. Start acting now! For instance, if you have a place in your mind that you want to go there but you always have excuse to postpone it, just buy the tickets and start packing! That’s the way in which I always act. Think twice but don’t think too much!

As I move to my conclusion, I want to say that, becoming old is an unavoidable process in our life; we human beings always try everything to stop aging. Can we turn the clock back to 5 or 10 years ago? When we looked into the mirror, no grey hair, no wrinkle, slimmer body and healthier color on your face, when you climb the mountain with your kids or jog 10km, you won’t feel so exhausted or breathless. Or sometimes you think, Jesus! I will do this or that if I was 10 years younger or I won’t lose my place to this young man if I was in my 28. The answer is no!
However, being young doesn’t mean a smooth and wrinkle-free face. It’s something that shines out from the inside. The real meaning of being young is the way you look at your life and the world, the way your body moves, your courage to embrace the new and step out of your comfort zone.
