If you are sitting there trying to remember who sung that one song you have stuck in your head, it could be a sign that you are getting old.
At a certain point in your life, things start happening that make you realize you aren’t a spring chicken anymore. It’s not that you are growing old disgracefully, you just happen to forget things more often and you definitely have more wrinkles.
Well, there is not much we can do about the memory loss, but there are ways in which we can curb some of the signs of aging.
You are getting older, but on the bright side, there are several advantages that come with age. For example, with age comes wisdom and maturity. Okay, so there are only two good things that come from aging.
Northern Colorado Laser and Skin, your medical spa in Greeley, offers signs that you are getting old. If it helps, we can print this in a larger font.
Your Dad Jokes are on Point
When you get older, you start dropping dad jokes more often than studios releasing bad DC movies. These jokes don’t amuse anyone, but that doesn’t stop you from spewing them at anyone within earshot.
The problem is that even though you are skating on thin ice with the dad jokes, most of what you say is true. Still, that is nothing to be proud of.
Crisis Happen Every Day
There was a time when you were pretty chill. That is, life was happening all around you, but you took it all in stride. You were kind of floating down a lazy river just checking out the scenes.
But now, there is a crisis you must deal with every day. You are in a constant state of panic about everything from that funny noise the Hyundai made to that weird mole you just spotted on your neck. You used to scroll Facebook and Instagram, now you spend your days scrolling WebMD.
The Sun Makes You Happy
You find it more and more difficult to get through cloudy days. You are genuinely happy when sunshine is in the forecast.
You Obsess Over Body Parts
You hit a certain age and you realize that you will never have six-pack abs again. And you are fine with that, but why do our hands look so wrinkly?
Shoes Lose Their Appeal
You used to live for that next pair of shoes. The evidence is stacked up in your closet. Now, the only thing that appeals to you concerning shoes is how comfortable they are. A new duvet set and a couple of rolls of wallpaper are far more appealing than a new pair of red pumps.
You Do Things the Right Way
At a certain age, you discover that cleaning the kitchen consists of more than just tossing dirty dishes in the dishwasher and kicking Raman noodles that fell to the floor under the refrigerator.
What was once a 10-minute job has morphed into an hour-and-a-half affair. You even take the silverware out of the dividers and wipe down the inside of the utensil drawer when you clean the kitchen.
This holds true with almost every aspect of your life. For example, clothes aren’t just washed and hung. You now have to iron everything, even the bath towels.
You Start Buying Wine by the Box
Those little bottles don’t last very long, the boxed wine goes a long way. You also bought jumbo wine glasses so you can still say you only have two glasses of wine in the evenings.
You have to Google Acronyms
You know all too well what LOL and IDK mean, but there are new acronyms that show up on your Facebook feed or in tests you get from your kids that you have no idea what they mean.
In a few years, you won’t even be embarrassed to ask what the acronyms stand for.
You Haven’t Seen Your Driver License in Years
There is no reason for you to ever pull out your ID anymore. It has been a long time since you were pulled over and you don’t ever get carded when buying boxes of wine. Of course, you also drive five mph under the speed limit, so you will probably never get pulled over again.
You are getting old. but there are plenty of ways in which you can slow time. Give Northern Colorado Laser and Skin a call and see what we can do for you.
