Some women dread their birthday because they feel that it's a reminder of how old they are becoming, but while no one can change the fact that people do age, there is a way to live agelessly. Whether your birthday isn’t for another few months or a whole year, here’s something to keep in mind: Focus on your triumphs, not on your age.

According to Christiane Northrup, M.D., board-certified OB/GYN and passionate believer in the spiritual side of healing, we need to stop celebrating milestone birthdays. "Because the milestone becomes a millstone. In our culture, it says you're running out of time. You only have so much left."

Does that mean that you should keep the celebration to a minimum? Not at all. Dr. Northrup says, "You celebrate everything that you've accomplished or that you're proud of in the past year so that you have really a celebration of your worth and your increased competence," she says. "That's a cool thing."
