Confidence Tips for Women over 40

By  |  0 Comments

Becoming forty is a milestone in any woman’s life, and it may come with mixed feelings. While we all know that being forty is supposed to be fabulous, sometime we may feel as though we have lost our grip on our youth. The greying hair, fine lines and wrinkles, and bodies that are not quite as ‘beach ready’ as we remembered… it can have an effect on a woman’s confidence, and that effect isn’t always the best. But don’t worry, being over forty truly is fabulous, and this guide gives you some tips to boost your confidence today.

Mind

Rather than slowing down, many women report being in better shape cognitively in their forties than they ever were in their earlier decades. While you might not know the names of the bands that your teenage kids like, you are still performing well with skills to do with problem-solving.

The mind works a little like elastic, in that the more you use it, the more dynamic it is. Help keep your mind sharper for longer by giving it new challenges, such as learning a new skill. Supplements such as omega 3 oils also help to keep brain cells in good condition.

Body

Your body may not have the tone of a twenty-something, but that doesn’t mean that you don’t look hot! You still have plenty of energy, so keep up with your fitness routines and healthy eating. However, it is a fact that our skin loses collagen as we age, which is what makes our skin elastic. You can fight the effects by having a good skincare routine, wearing sunscreen, and eating foods that boost collagen production.

Another aspect of aging that many women find hard to deal with is thinning hair. There is no set age for female hair loss; it just becomes more common the older we get. Your hair is your crowning glory, so it is no wonder that many women want to hide hair loss. There are products on the market that can make thinning hair look thicker, and this may do the trick for a while. Other solutions include regrowth treatments which are often successful. It is important to remember that while you know that your hair is thinning, it is probably not noticeable to anyone else, so don’t let it stop you from feeling confident.

Spirit

It is time to embrace being in your forties. You know much more now than when you were young, and with wisdom comes beauty! Having a deep sense of self, having goals as well as looking at what you have already achieved, gives you an inner sense of confidence. It is always there, so tap into it whenever you need to.

Being in your forties is something to celebrate. It is a new phase in your life and one that brings with it a new sense of well-being and confidence. See the beauty in the odd wrinkles and laughter lines, as they tell a tale of a life well lived, and with much yet to come.
