Make Your Life Magnificent with Jackie + Mimi

There comes a moment in our lives where we look in the mirror and start to realize, “I’m getting older.” When I really stare at my reflection I can see how my skin is duller and the lines across my forehead are deeply etched with the years that have passed.

We’re not supposed to focus on looks or aging, it’s taboo.  Looks don’t matter. Weight doesn’t matter. Age doesn’t matter.  But let's be honest...when we are looking older, gaining weight and feeling achy...it can absolutely impact us.

This episode we’re being real about how we feel about getting older and giving you permission to be honest about it all.

Scientists have found that people who feel younger than their chronological age are typically healthier and more psychologically resilient than those that feel older. They perform better on memory tasks and are at a lower risk of cognitive decline. 

In a study published in 2018, a team of South Korean researchers scan the brains of 68 healthy older adults and found that those who felt younger than their age have bigger brain matter and are heading toward less age-related deterioration. 

By contrast, people who feel older than their chronological age are more at risk for hospitalization dementia and death. 

Interestingly enough, when people are asked in their forties most people feel younger at 50 about half the people feel their age or younger but by the time they're 70 they only about 15% of people feel younger.

A youthful frame of mind has a direct correlation with mental and physical health.
