Life has been a pretty nasty habit of creeping up on us, and before we know it, we can be swamped down with work, feel and look tired, and have an all round lethargic, uninspired spirit. We can all feel like this sometimes, but it’s important to know that the power to change, to give our body and enthusiasm a jolt, lies with us. And it’s not as difficult as you might think. Below, I've outlined five lifestyle habits that’ll give you the energy and look you need to face the world with gusto.

Stay Relaxed

Nobody likes to feel stressed, but scientists are beginning to discover that it doesn’t only cause poor mental health: it can also have a detrimental effect on our bodies and speeds up the aging process at the same time. While modern life is full of stressors and can feel like we’re moving a hundred miles per hour, there are a few tips you can do to keep the stress levels down. Practising yoga, meditation, or simply spending an hour reading and relaxing each night can all keep the negative aspects of modern life at bay.

Take Care Of Your Skin

It’s all good and well feeling young, but we want to look young too - and the biggest indicator of this is how healthy our skin is. As such, it’s important that you’re doing all the right things to help keep your skin looking and feeling fresh. You’ll need all the essential skin care products in your cupboard, and a daily skin routine to help keep rid of all the buildup of dirt and oil, too. When you’re spending time in the sun, it’s important that you wear sun lotion and moisturize after. Avoid using certain products that can damage skin, as well.


When you are young, it’s possible to get away with doing whatever you want and still feeling and looking good. As we age, our body begins to turn on us if it’s left to its own devices. We can fight back, however, simply by signing up for a gym or going for a nightly run. Having a workout routine helps keep your body and skin healthy, and gives us more energy in the process. We’ll be looking our best and have the energy to strike out into the world.

A Full Night’s Sleep

We know that life can feel pretty jam packed, and you want to make the most of each waking hour, but if you’re not getting a full night’s sleep, then you’ll be doing yourself more harm than good, regardless of what you’re cramming into those extra waking hours. Go to bed at a reasonable hour, and avoid things like caffeine and excessive screen time before you hit the hay.

Eating Well

Our body only represents what we’re putting into it. There are foods that boost the skin, such as avocado. Other foods, like berries and foods with a lot of water (like watermelon, cucumbers, apples) will keep your face looking hydrated. Time to ditch the donuts and other sugary snacks, sorry!
