Making Sure Your Prime Is Your Prime

Making Sure Your Prime Is Your Prime


When you were a kid, you almost pictured how you’d look, behave, work, and feel when you were well into your life as a fully-functioning adult. When your mind wasn’t occupied with the latest fad, you thought about how everything would go. You got a more vivid idea of things during your adolescence because you began growing into it all. But now you’re well into your life as a competent and accomplished grown-up, and you’re now at the stage where you need to live the life that you pictured years ago. 

Obviously, a human being is only ever as old as he or she feels, but the prime of life really spans between twenty and forty years of age. Yes, you can pick specific ages if you’d like to be pedantic, but we’re going with some nice round numbers here. This space of time is when you’re at the peak of your physical, mental, and social powers, traditionally, so you’ve got to make the most of them, right? It would be a shame to see a wonderful human like yourself waste these years. If you want to really ensure that your prime really is your prime, then let’s look at things you should do. 

Eat Good

Inhaling all of the takeaway food and junk food is nice, but it should be something you do all of the time. If you want to be at the peak of your physical powers, you have got to feed your body with the good stuff. You learn about a balanced diet and all of the good foods when you’re little – now it’s time to put what you learned into practice! We’re not saying you should be an Olympic level athlete, but do yourself a favor and keep yourself in top shape.  


Again, you don’t need to be an Olympian. Just doing a few bits of exercise that will get your heart rate up a few times a week should be good enough. Keeping active won’t only maintain your physical prowess, but it’ll also benefit you mentally. When you work out, your brain releases all kinds of happy chemicals that make you feel so much more confident and positive. Trust me, you’ll want that confidence and spirit at this age.  

Visit Doctor Regularly

This is something you should do, whether you’re at a prime age or not. A lot of people fear going to the doctor for a multitude of reasons. Maybe they’re just too shy. Perhaps they feel as though they’re burdening the doc. Maybe they just couldn’t be bothered. Don’t be like those people. If something’s up, you should get it checked. It could be something severe, or maybe you’ll just be prescribed some medication and told to buy some Listen Lively hearing aids. Whatever the outcome, you’ll be glad you went and got whatever problem you had sorted.  

Be As Sociable As You Can

Being around others, especially those you love, will also boost you – mentally and physically. People need to have that comradery for their own sanity, so make sure you spend a lot of time with your friends and family. Solitary confinement during your twenties and thirties would be a super sad existence.

5 reasons why you should use essential oils

You may or may not have already heard about essential oils, but as more research is conducted and more people talk about their incredible benefits you might want to jump on the bandwagon and start taking advantage of them!

Essential oils can be incorporated into your routine in a number of ways, but you must remember not to drink them!
A popular method is to incorporate them into your skincare routine, you can also inhale them as part of aromatherapy, use them in massage, in a diffuser and also as a compress.

But why would you want to use essential oils?

1. Glowing skin.

If you want a radiant glow, try adding some essential oils into your skincare at night. Popular essential oils to incorporate are frankincense and myrrh.
Adding a couple of drops of these oils into your moisturizer can help in a range of ways, from reducing inflammation (meaning it’s good for acne), to premature aging and wound healing it’s hard to stop using it once you’ve started!

2. Mood-boosting.

Mental health is just as important as physical health and it’s important we give attention to how we are feeling inside. When applied topically, ylang ylang essential oil in particular has been found to relieve stress, calm people down and has an overall relaxing effect on the mind.
Finding or making your own ylang ylang blend and taking some with you as you travel about your day could be a simple remedy to help stay relaxed and focus on your mental well-being.

3. Beauty sleep.

A good night’s sleep is incredibly important for your health; from improving your memory to staying in shape, you should try and attain the best nights sleep you can. Certain essential oils can help you get the better quality sleep more of the time. Interested? Try lavender oil. Lavender has been shown to improve quality of sleep and also shown to reduce anxiety.

4. All-rounders.

When you buy essential oils, make sure to buy high quality and organic, or you might not get the full benefit of the oil. If an oil isn’t organic you might get some unwanted effects from traces of pesticide residue concentrated in the oil. Buying the highest quality oils can sometimes be quite pricey, however, you don’t have to buy every essential oil there is – even though it can be quite tempting when you realize each of their benefits!

A good idea, particularly if you’re new to essential oils is to purchase an essential oil that is versatile and possesses a wide range of benefits. Tea tree oil is one of these great all-rounders to add to or begin your collection. The infographic below demonstrates some of tea tree oil’s benefits.
