After reading this thread I think a relevant point is that life doesn't have to be about leaving the best looking corpse.

True, true. But the best-looking older bodies are also probably the best-feeling older bodies. A lot of the stuff that is being recommended for the body is good for the spirit, as well.

True, but a lot of things that have to do with taking care of the body is because it's actually good for our health. I have family members that live pretty long lives. Assuming nothing happens, I'll probably be around for awhile. Taking care to exercise my muscles will keep me able to walk around even when I'm older. I don't want to be an older person with underused muscles that could make it difficult for the body to move around much. I also don't want to be someone who didn't take of themselves and ends sick all the time when they're older. I might not be able to avoid certain things anyway, but some relatives are in really good condition in their old age because of their lifestyle. And the skin should be taken care of even just because it's an organ that actually exists for various purposes. Not just to look pretty or give us something to put makeup on.

Cool list, except for these 2 things:
I don't get how loose fitting clothes make anyone less stressed.
And paper planes waste trees and end up litter as anyway, that kinda makes me stressed. Go for biodegradable bubbles!

I say no all the time but I don't think it's a good thing when it comes to me, but for my mum, she should def try it out. She's taking on way too much because she doesn't say no to anyone

Definitely learning how to properly breath before important events would have helped me better cope with stressful situations.

I read all the 21 pages, and within this thread there is some sound advice, thank you all!

What I want to add is to never envy others for what they look like, because it is useless, there is only one you, make it the best possible by being grateful and treating yourself with the love and care you deserve! Everyone gets to do it with what they were given by nature... when I see someone like Heidi Montag I feel she totally missed the point what it means to be alive and true to yourself, and it makes me very sad that people are so lost that they want to change everything about them that makes them them! All that Hollywood seems to do is turn once unique people into clones of each other. Slightly different nose? Cut it off! Lips not as full as Angelina's? Fill it up!
So we end up living in a world where everybody looks the same... we shouldn't want this, this is not beauty.

I agree with this, it might not be easier to learn how to love or even like how you look, but I do believe it's a much better solution than surgery(spl).


Also something that might come back and bit you in the behind not that much later in life, if you're sick and are spending all day in bed try to still do your skin care routine or you might end up like me, having dry itchy skin for a week

I think envy in general can be kind of useless actually. Not even just for looks.

I don't know whether this counts as good advice for this, but looking for petty excuses to hate someone who hasn't actually done anything to you is kind of pointless, even though I guess that would right back to the issue of envy in some cases.

Dairy, the sun and pollution. But you can't hold your breath while walking in the shade and not eating cheese forever

Living well is the best revenge.

Works for me.
