There is an old saying that you are only as old as you feel. There are many key factors to get you on your way to feeling like a teenager again. By making a commitment to eating right, exercising, living life to its fullest, and having fun, you can achieve your goal.

One of the major key factors is to eat right. Avoid junk food. This cannot be stressed enough no matter what your age you are. A healthy diet will help get your body back into shape. Another tremendous benefit to eating healthy foods is that you will have a lot more energy.

You don't necessarily have to be on a diet but rather just adjust the types of foods you eat. By staying away from unhealthy foods you will not only accomplish your goals, but also greatly reduce your chances of suffering from certain health conditions such as cancer and diabetes.

Another important tip is that you should try to avoid eating after dinner time. Many experts stipulate that having your last meal of the day before 6 p.m. and refraining from snacking before bed will help to control your weight. Of course, feel free to indulge in a steaming cup of herbal tea to soothe you into a restful sleep.

By committing to a weekly exercise routine you will begin to see positive changes in your body. You will start to loss weight, shape your muscles, and have so much more energy. If you are not used to exercising it would be wise to start out slowly, and work your way up to a harder routine.

Once you start to see and feel the benefits that exercise has to offer, you won't consider it to be a task, but rather part of your daily lifestyle. There is no limit to what you can achieve. Each day holds a new beginning.

The biggest key factor to your whole game plan should be to have fun. You can incorporate fun into your daily activities, as well as extra curricular activities. Don't be afraid to be spontaneous. When was the last time you saw a teenager stop to plan their day hour by hour.

Here's a good way to add spontaneity to your day. If you are just sitting around with nothing to do, call up a friend and invite them to go for a walk with you. This would let you achieve two of your key factors at once. Not only that, you will find yourself smiling as you and your friend stride along, chatting and enjoying the scenery.

After a few weeks of eating well, exercising, enjoying life and having fun, you will awake each day with a renewed zest for living. You will look in the mirror and see the teenager you once were smiling back at you.

Getting regular exercise definitely keeps your mind happier, I wish it would make me feel like a teenager again, but it's probably as close as you'll get.

It's a good point that you don't have to 'diet' per sey, just try to eat healthier in the ways that are the most practical and achievable.

I love a cup of chamomile before bed, it really does make you sleep better.
