Most of us start to feel a little insecure about the way we look as we get older. Forget that! Here are 7 good reasons to embrace getting older - welcome to the happiest, healthiest time of your life.
From making big decisions at work to tactfully saying no to selfish friends - one of the best things about getting older is that you're more secure in your sense of self. Experience and wisdom win the day, every day.
Your body image
It's the body that nurtured your kids and gets you from A to B, day after day, uncomplaining and dutiful. If that's not beautiful, we don't know what is.
A genuine smile is always beautiful, regardless of age. While a good skin care and beauty regime is important - Olay Eyes Pro-Retinol Eye Cream smoothens out deep wrinkles such as crows feet and increases surface cell turnover for prevention of new lines from forming.
The relationship with your kids
Now that the tantrums and tears are (mostly) a thing of the past, it's time to watch your little fledglings forge their own way in life. Now you can become a friend as well as a parent - it's the best of all worlds.
The relationship with your partner
As the passion and fire of the early years morph into trust and secure intimacy, a lifetime of shared experiences (and learned tolerance) results in an affectionate and companionable bond. Just lovely.
Whipping up a dinner party for eight barely phases you, so practised are you at getting family meals on the table, night after night, catering to the ever-changing whims of your children's taste buds. No one bakes a speedy souffle like you do!
Studies show that the older we get, the happier we are - and rates of depression and anxiety significantly decrease as we age.
