How to Combat the Pressure to Look Young


We live in a society that is obsessed with youth, especially for women. As a woman in my mid-40s, I definitely feel the pressure to look young, and it gets stronger every single year.

While I’m all about self-care and keeping both my body and mind in great shape, there are times when I’ve had to take a step back and realize that I too am being consumed by an unhealthy desire to look as young as possible. And this pressure isn’t serving my greater goal of being mentally, spiritually, and physically healthy.

Growing older and wiser is a wonderful thing, and of course you want to age gracefully and beautifully while feeling amazing about who you are and who you’re becoming. But I can tell you this isn’t going to happen by fixating on your external appearance, especially when what will really bring you joy is internal contentment.

So how can you resist the pressure to look ageless and young all the time? In this #AskRitu video, I give you the exact steps I’m taking to overcome the pressure I feel to look youthful. Watch now!
