Check Your Vibes: 11 Reasons Aging Just Might Be The Key To Happiness

After assessing the lives and habits of 262,000 people, a recent study conducted by polling company CivicScience found that as far as statistics go, Americans are pretty damn happy. Shocker, right? If anecdotal evidence and oft-cited bits of pseudo-science are any indication, I’ve been under the impression that Americans are some of the least happy people on the planet, despite…

Magic Anti-Aging Chocolate Is Biggest Lady Cliche In Existence

Apparently there are some scientists who have invented “anti-aging” chocolate called “Esthechoc” and now moms in their 40s all across America are squealing with glee! OK, not yet because it seems like it may not even really be a totally proven thing.

Flavanols In Cocoa Can Reverse Age-Related Memory Loss, So Obviously We Should All Binge On Chocolate (JK, That’s A Bad Idea)

A new, convincing (albeit small) study in the journal Nature Neuroscience has shown that a chemical called flavanols extracted from cocoa beans can reverse age-related memory loss. The participants, aged 50 to 69, drank powdered cocoa flavanols mixed with milk or water and took memory tests. The group that took a higher dose of flavanol…

Oprah Is Chillaxing Hard Now That She’s 60 (Well, As Much As Oprah Can Chillax)

“What’s great about 60 is you are through with the bullshit — it means you are really and truly through. Now, Camille Cosby had told me at 40 that happens, but 40 you’re still … in the race, you’re still competitive. And at 50, you’re still like, ‘Do I need to?’ 60? You are chilled. You…

Julianne Moore Plans To Be A Botox-Free 100-Year-Old

“I’d like to think that I can age as naturally as possible.

Random Question: What Happened When You Were 28?

It was recently brought to my attention that age 28 is often a big, crazy, life-changing year for people. Reasons range from Saturn return to cell turnover to psychological development to societal expectations, but I’m not as interested in the specific explanation as I am in people’s unique experiences at this age. The vast majority…

45 Things We Thought We’d Accomplish By A Certain Age (And Didn’t)

In the movie “Singles,” -—and this sticks with Ami because she first saw it at the age of 14, so it made a big impression — Janet Livermore (played by Bridget Fonda) gives a monologue about where she thought she’d be by the age of 23. She laments:
“I’m 23. Remember how old 23…

Connie Britton Doesn’t Want To Talk About Aging

“Just drawing on my own experience, I never — I never — personally reference myself as old. I don’t think of myself as old, but I certainly would not say that to a man. I might have a conversation with some girlfriends — what are we doing about the lines around our eyes — but…

Is Moldy Cheese The Key To The French Health Paradox?

White bread, rich cheeses, and red wine are beloved staples of the Gallic diet. They smoke, they drink, they consume loads of saturated fats… yet they don’t have an obesity problem, they don’t lose their looks with age, and they have the lowest rate of cardiovascular mortality worldwide.

The 17 Most Annoying Things About Getting Older

I’ve been looking in the mirror for the past several weeks, noticing for the first time, that my forehead has perma-wrinkles. I keep slathering on moisturizer, as if dousing my face in enough cream will somehow make those fine lines disappear (news flash, it won’t).

12 Celebs Who Never Seem To Age (Or Are Actively Aging In Reverse)

Watching the Emmys this weekend, I was totally blown away by how amazing Julianna Margulies looked. “She hasn’t aged a day in 10 years!” I gasped, and then I saw Edie Falco, and thought the same thing, and then Nicole Kidman showed up, and I realized a photo slideshow was in order.

100 Years In Less Than 3 Minutes

We’re a culture obsessed with aging — keeping wrinkles and fine lines at bay, staying youthful and energized, looking younger than we maybe actually are. Which is why this video from Dutch filmmaker Jeroen Wolf is so fascinating. Wolf asked 100 people from ages 1 to 100 to share their age for a short video.

I Have Granny Gray Hair At Age 20!

I thought the breakout all over my face would be enough to ruin my day as I glared at myself in the mirror this morning.
