Ways Your Body Betrays You In Your Thirties
Nobody would consider a person in her thirties to be old—not by any means (well, perhaps Hollywood, but don’t trust them). So, if you are in this age group, you may wonder, “Then why do I find myself complaining of all the things my mother complains of?” Well, it’s probably because, while you’re certainly still young in your thirties, you’re past that time of your twenties when your body was in absolutely pristine condition. You could put it through a lot, couldn’t you? Rage all night, sleep five hours, get up and rock climb, and do it all again the next night. Nope—those days are over. Your body is still in pretty great shape, but it’s fallen just shy of the perfection that it was in your glorious twenties. Of course, now you have the wisdom, confidence, and perhaps money you didn’t have you in your twenties. You wouldn’t go back if you could. But you could do without these ways your body betrays you in your mid to late thirties.
Your cocktail maximum drops
Suddenly, just like that, you get a hangover from having two stiff cocktails, when it used to be three (and in college, it was five). You thought you did a great job restricting yourself last night. You cut yourself off after two Manhattans and yet, here you are, with a massive hangover as if you’d drank the whole bottle of bourbon. Your cocktail max just dropped to 1.5.
