Dr. Christiane Northrup says we all have the power to start living agelessly. One of the first steps? Adjusting your attitude toward birthdays. "I would stop celebrating milestone birthdays ... because the milestone becomes a millstone," she says. "In our culture, it says you're running out of time. You only have so much left."

Instead, she says, celebrate the entire year that just passed. "I like a whole birthday season," she 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. That's a cool thing."
