40 is the new hip, healthy, sexy?

The Mindset of a Hip, Healthy & Sexy Women Over 40

By: Sybil Henry

Arriving at the mid point of life can be the most exciting and fulfilling experience ever. This is your time when you get a second chance to be better than ever. Here are some insights to help you connect with your inner hip, healthy and sexy best over 40. 

A hip woman over 40 carries herself unapologetically and owns a style that is uniquely and authentically her own.  Her style is a reflection of her essence on the inside that she brings forward to the outside.  She is a savvy shopper and makes decisive clothing decisions that consistently reflect the clarity of her personal style and body shape.  The unspoken communication of her style demonstrates to the world that she understands and accepts who she is, which radiates her personal power and confidence.  She is well aware of the value she brings in her strengths and is lovingly accepting of her weaknesses.

 A healthy woman over 40 is in charge of her body and is the biggest advocate for her own well being.  She is well educated about her body and the nutritional needs to keep her functioning at peak performance. She understands the value of regular exercise and has found activities she can enjoy that are compatible with her lifestyle and fitness goals.  She measures and monitors her hormonal health knowing it is the single most important contributing factor affecting her emotional and physical health. She knows it has more influence on her weight and shape than anything else she will eat or do.  She has given up a lifetime of dieting, trading it for a new treaty that has an awareness and respect for her natural body rhythms based on self-guided intuitive principles rather than externally imposed rules and deprivation.  She does not use food emotionally; she makes conscious choices about what she decides to put into her body.  She faces her feelings, feels them and expresses them assertively and appropriately rather than stuffing and eating them.

A sexy woman over 40 is comfortable in her own skin; she is self-loving and enjoys giving and receiving pleasure.  She is no longer content pleasing her partner without it being a reciprocal experience. She understands that being sexy starts with her. She has taken responsibility for her feelings and starts by feeling sexy about herself.  She is in tune with her body and knows her unique pleasure triggers.   She communicates her needs for pleasure with her partner knowing it is a source of their pleasure to satisfy and fulfill her.  She enjoys emotionally healthy and fulfilling relationships with people who have shared values.  Her environment is harmonious and in balance, reflecting her values and her lifestyle.  Home is her source of strength; it is nurturing and serves as a place for renewal.  She has made her bedroom a sacred space of sensuality, serving her deepest desires.  She is interested in growing and stretching herself and is not content staying the same.

When you are living life to your fullest potential, the beauty and power on the inside is reflected on the outside. Empowering yourself to embrace this as the best time of your life can be cathartic and inspiring for you and all of those who come in contact with you. This is your time to shine. Celebrate, own and embrace living hip, healthy and sexy over 40!
