Cindy said, “I think it's so important to like this, however you look, right out of the shower. It's back to finding things good. When you find things good, they get better.”
If you wear makeup most of the time, try going without it a couple of times a month until you “find things good” with your natural beauty.
3. Simplify your routine.
Simplicity is one of the great joys of aging—and our Boom Ambassadors agree.
63-year-old Beth Dolan says,“I just don’t need much. I don’t want much. I think that’s one of the glories of going down the life path. You just realize: simplicity, efficiency, path of least resistance. But I still want to feel good.”
We suggest you begin by simplifying your beauty routine.
Choose multitasking cosmetics whenever possible and drop every step or product that doesn’t bring you joy, pleasure or feeling beautiful.
If that feels good—keep going.
4. Embrace pleasure.
Cindy told us her life changed when she began to seek pleasure instead of success.
She wrote,“Once I understood that I would enjoy life more and feel more connected to my true nature if I started living according to what pleasured me, everything I did became much easier. My life became more enjoyable by default.”
Resolving to seek pleasure in our pain-oriented society might not be as easy as it seems at first blush. Cindy’s advice? Practice.
“Practice breaking the habit of dwelling on complaints,” Cindy suggested, “and start paying attention to what pleasures you.”
5. Grow out your silver hair.
At BOOM!, we love silver hair. If you do too, this might be the year to embrace it.
Many women have told us how their lives got better after embracing their silver. Cindy considered her silver hair to be the “physical evidence of a lifetime of accomplishments.” It was also the impetus for her second act as a model.
If you’re ready, resolve to celebrate your silver this year. There are many paths to embracing your silver hair and all of them have their pros and cons.
Whatever path you choose, move forward with confidence and joy.
6. Celebrate your age.
Many women stop celebrating (or even acknowledging) their age in adulthood.
If you stopped celebrating your birthday, resolve to start again this year.
Plan a party that suits your style and budget. Go big or go small, but do something to mark your birth and another year of time and opportunity.
It’s another pro-age way to embrace life. We hope the coming year is filled with joy—and we look forward to celebrating it with you.
