My new book crush for women over 40 (or women of any age!) is Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality, and Well-Being by Dr. Christiane Northrup. I have listed to a number of her talks on YouTube; however, this is the first in-depth experience I have had with her work.
She covers the gamut of topics in Goddesses Never Age: The Secret Prescription for Radiance, Vitality, and Well-Being. Dr. Northrup addresses everything from health and nutrition to sex and the importance of mindset in the aging process. There are a few beliefs that she has that I do not totally agree with at this point in my life; however, this book is one of my absolute favorites!
One of the topics she covers has been impacting my own life lately. I recently learned that my psoas muscles needed some TLC. I didn’t even know what the psoas muscle was until a few weeks ago! I sit a lot and had to make some lifestyle changes. I changed my workouts and now have a standing desk. You can learn more about the psoas muscles on Dr. Northrup’s blog: Why your psoas muscle is the most vital muscle in your body.
One of the themes I noticed through the book was the importance of having fun. Yes, I am not the only person discussing the importance of fun for everyone! I am convinced that fun is the fountain of youth. Think of the healthiest and happiest people you know. Now, think about how they act and behave. Are they having fun?
I also realize that “fun” is a little different for everyone. I want to understand this in greater detail and need a little help. What are your thoughts about the importance of fun? What do you enjoy doing? What does “fun” mean to you?
Go Wild, Act Like an Ageless Goddess and Have Fun!
