Is There A Fountain of Youth? The Story of Stuff


Our culture puts a great deal of emphasis on maintaining the appearance of youth, good looks, and even conventional appearance. Consequently there is a huge market for anti-aging skin care products and cosmetics that cover-up unique appearances promoting the same concept of beauty for everyone.


Personally, I have never bought into to the concept of the aging process. I believe that good health created by enjoying a healthy lifestyle of good balanced nutrition, enjoyable exercise, quality rest and relaxation with attention to mastering stress will support our health and well being which in turn will exhibit a vibrancy that glows from the inside outward. This to me is the true fountain of youth.


At any time we can reverse the aging process, at least to some degree. In my view reversing the aging process is not the optimum goal, rather creating vibrant health which glows like a light from the inside out. Whether you intend to reverse aging or prevent aging the process is the same. Giving our bodies, including our skin, the nourishment it requires to continually regenerate healthy cells is what constitutes optimal health and beauty. At any time we can enhance our health of body, mind and spirit such that we project a vibrancy that indicates a ‘joi-de-vivre.’


Identifying what we associate as the signs of aging is useful. These are our body’s signals that we are out of balance. Wrinkles, dull and dry skin, brown spots, loss of facial tone and contours, stiff aching joints and muscles, shrinking muscles, loss of strength, tiredness are all indications that our self health care is lacking. How we develop these signs needs to be better understood. Both genetics and lifestyle will influence our health and the way we look and feel as our years increase in number.


Our signs of aging should develop slowly and gradually. We can’t stop or prevent aging. It is a natural life process. However, I believe that we all can style our years with grace.


Helpful practices for maintaining a vibrant glow of grace –
