Believe it or not, you are about to turn The Big 5-0. While you have already had your share of birthday milestones—your friends still bring up your epic 30th celebration—there is something about turning 50 that seems extra momentous.

Whether you are excited about your birthday or would rather skip the party this year, please know that there are a lot of great things about being a woman who is 50. With this in mind, the following five pieces of advice can help make coping with the idea of turning 50 as easy as possible:

1. Try Not to Stress Over the Physical Changes

It is to be expected that after being on this earth for 50 years, your body will start to show some very common signs of aging. You might start seeing more gray hairs than ever and you may need to pull out your readers when looking at a menu. These changes are natural, so as much as you can, try not to be upset or stressed out about them. Also, keep in mind that in many cases, you can take steps to reduce the signs of some of these signs of age.

2. Signs of Aging Do Not Have to Be Inevitable

While women who are turning 50 frequently see a number of totally normal changes in their bodies—both inside and out—it does not mean they all have to be inevitable. If, for example, you are truly bothered by the lines and wrinkles that are developing in your face, it is perfectly fine to take steps to eliminate them. Through word of mouth or trial and error, do what you can to find the best treatments and creams for wrinkle and fine line reduction.

3. See 50 As a New Beginning

Rather than approaching your 50th birthday with anxiety, think of it as a time to evaluate what you love in your life and what, if anything, you would like to change. You still have plenty of years ahead of you and if you have always wanted to learn a new skill, go back to school, get a different type of job or possibly re-think a relationship, this is the ideal time to do so.

4. If Necessary, Lose Some Weight

A small change in your body weight may have a big impact on your overall health. If you have noticed that the number on the scale is creeping up a bit, focus on losing just 5 percent of your current weight. This means that a woman who weighs 200 pounds can experience some significant and positive changes in her health after losing 10 pounds. Even if you have more than a small amount of weight to lose, it is good to know that shedding a few pounds will definitely get you going in the right direction.

5. Eat Healthily

Another great way to embrace turning 50 is with a healthy diet that will give you plenty of energy-giving nutrients. For instance, try to avoid processed foods as much as you can with simple yet tasty swaps. At lunchtime, trade potato chips for cucumber slices dipped in hummus and up your intake of fruits and vegetables. As a bonus, if you are hoping to drop some weight, these changes can help you reach your goal.

Happy Birthday!

Turning 50 is definitely worthy of a great celebration. At the same time, it is not necessarily synonymous with “growing old.” While you may see some physical changes that are completely normal, it is OK to say “no” to some of them. Embrace this birthday as your time to make whatever changes you need to do to your body, mind and soul, and you will find that this is an extremely positive season of life.
