There’s no question about it: Sometimes getting older is tough. After all, when else in your life do you have to constantly deal with feeling achy and tired, faltering vision, and fading hearing? And then you’re faced with gray hair, wrinkles, and receding hairlines, to boot!
The gray hair is easy. If it bothers you, cover it with dye. Wrinkles can be smoothed with moisturizer (like our Anti-Aging & Wrinkle Cream). You can get a hearing aid and start wearing reading glasses. But what about those days when you just feel…old?
One of the best, and fastest, ways to drag yourself out of a funk is to spend some time with a friend or neighbor. Studies indicate that when a woman spends time with another woman, her body releases a brain chemical called oxytocin that counters the kind of stress that can contribute to depression. So get together with a buddy and hopefully, you’ll feel younger, your mood will improve, and your energy will be restored, just like that.
You can also rely on herbs to help restore your roar. In 1 quart of boiling water, steep one tablespoon of two of these dried herbs: lemon balm, rosemary, vervain, lime blossom, passionflower, and chamomile. After 15 minutes, let the tea cool, then sip it throughout the day.
