Actress Danica McKellar is kicking off 2023 with some wisdom about anti-aging.
“The Wonder Years” and Hallmark movie regular posted an Instagram photo on Tuesday (Jan. 3) of herself without makeup, which she shared to celebrate her 48th birthday.
In the post, she states, “Well hello there, 48! (Here’s the obligatory #nomakeup, #nofilter shot.) Thank you for all your sweet birthday messages already today. Wishing you all a beautiful 2023, and thank you so much for being on this journey with me, both with my movies on @gactv and with @mckellarmath, and of course also with my newfound faith, for which so many of you have been so encouraging!”
McKellar is quite the talent. She’s not only an actress, but also a mathematician and has written six children’s books about math.
As for staying young-looking, she says, “If there’s any secret I’ve found to youth, it’s in the attitude… and a healthy, clean lifestyle, of course. Our minds and bodies are inextricably connected. I’ve found when I eat well and get enough rest and exercise, I have so much more access to that inner joy that makes life fun! And when I discipline myself to see good (and laugh at the absurduties) in the world, resisting the seduction of outrage addiction, I find I’m more likely to stay in gratitude and make healthy choices…like going to bed early instead of staying up late to scroll through… all the things there are to be outraged over.”
She said that the “other secret to life” is “taking all that gratitude and giving back to the world in as many ways as I can. My grandmother always said, ‘The way to be happy is to make other people happy.’ Spread it around.”
McKellar most recently starred in the Great American Family network’s “Christmas at the Drive-In.”
