3 Ways to Be a Yummy Mummy: Tips for Becoming Fit and Fabulous at 40

You made it! You hit 40, and you're feeling better than ever. Sure, there are a few more gray hairs and wrinkles than you'd like, but overall you feel great. You've got this! Now it's time to focus on becoming the fittest and most fabulous version of yourself yet. Here are three ways to help you along the way.

Get Moving

You don't have to run a marathon or become a yogi overnight, but adding some movement into your daily routine is essential. Taking a brisk walk around the block or getting in a quick workout at home are both great ways to get your body moving. Adding physical activity to your day will help increase your energy levels, improve your mood, and help you sleep better at night. Plus, it's a great way to reduce stress levels. And we all know how important that is! Here are some other ideas for adding movement into your day:

  • Take the stairs instead of the elevator

  • Park further away from the store entrance

  • Take a dance class

  • Ride your bike to work

  • Go for a hike on the weekends

All of these things are great ways to get your body moving and improve your overall health. So get out there and start moving! Your body will thank you for it.

Eat Healthy

This one might seem like a no-brainer, but it's essential to focus on eating healthy foods as you get older. Now is the time to start making healthier choices and cut out processed foods, sugary drinks, and excessive amounts of alcohol. Eating healthy doesn't have to be boring either. There are tons of delicious recipes out there that are good for you AND taste great. So do some research, find some new recipes, and start cooking! Here are some other ideas for eating healthy:

  • Make sure to eat breakfast every day

  • Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables

  • Limit your intake of sugar and saturated fats

  • Drink lots of water

  • Avoid excessive amounts of alcohol

All of these things are great ways to eat healthily and improve your overall health. So pick one (or a few!) and start adding them into your routine today.

How to Defy Gravity and Look Younger

As we age, it's inevitable that gravity will take its toll on our skin. But that doesn't mean you have to just accept it! There are plenty of ways to defy gravity and look younger. Here are some ideas:

  • Get a facial: Facials can help improve circulation and increase collagen production, which can help your skin look firmer and more youthful.

  • Use sunscreen: This one is important! Using sunscreen every day can help protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays, which can cause wrinkles and other signs of aging.

  • Exfoliate regularly: Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells, making your skin look dull. Regular exfoliation can help your skin look brighter and more radiant.

  • Moisturize: Moisturizing helps keep your skin hydrated, which can help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

  • A Fitted Bra: Believe it or not, wearing a properly fitting bra can help lift and support your breasts, which can help reduce the appearance of sagging skin.

  • Plastic Surgery: If you're really looking to defy gravity, there are always options like plastic surgery. But be sure to do your research, like knowing the FDA's new labeling guidance for breast implants, and consult with a board-certified surgeon before making any decisions.

Turning 40 doesn't have to be the end of the world. You can become a yummy mummy at 40 and beyond with a few simple lifestyle changes! So get moving, eat healthily, and defy gravity to look and feel your best. Your body will thank you for it.
