Here are 30 ways to feel younger after 40. And we couldn’t wait to share them with you!


1| Teach someone something that amazes them and comes easy for you.

2| Buy after market wheels for your car. Doesn’t have to be fancy, but customizing is a playful, youthful way to say you’re savvy.

3| Get some meaningful ink. There’s a reason so many people love tattoos. It can be therapeutic.

4| Get a professional full body massage if you’ve never had one. You’ll just feel amazing after.

5| Update your purse/wallet. If you’ve been using the same wallet or purse for a while, try it.

6| Go out to the sports bar during an MMA or Boxing match. Watching two guys duke it out is like real life video gaming. The crowd is always a nice little mix.

7| Go to a late movie premiere, like midnight. Staying up late just because is cute.

8| Only search for your age range on the dating app. Don’t forget to change this filter before they show you the million under 25 profiles.

9| If your s/o never wants to go out on the town with you, go alone or with friends.

10| Go to the gun range with a friend. There’s youth in powerful moments.

11| Get some over ear headphones. Not just music producers and basketball players can rock those!

12| Actually go out with your coworkers sometimes instead of always staying home.

13| Find a hangout where most of the regulars are older than you. You may absorb some knowledge as the youngest one there.

14| Buy some Nike Air Max. Even if you don’t work out, those kicks are exceptionally gorgeous and the color options are youthful.

15| Laugh more, worry less. Try anxiety/depression meds if you don’t feel balanced. It may change your life.

16| Have a garment in your wardrobe tailored to fit you just right. Search for patterns and have a seamstress create something just for you.

17| Schedule a professional photo shoot, either casual or for your business.

18| Find a new hobby.

19| Listen to more music.
