Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Cameron Diaz has graced the April cover of Women’s Health and the actress has an advice for every woman about aging.

The 43-year-old actress noted that she hopes women will embrace aging the way that she does. She shared, “Do we keep punishing other women and ourselves for growing older, for doing something that’s perfectly natural? Or do we pat each other on the back and say, ‘You’re doing amazing?’”

Diaz shared that she studied how the bodies age for her new project entitled “The Longevity Book.” In her interview with Women’s Magazine, the wife of Benji Madden shared her findings. She shared that women in their 20s should focus on diet and exercise. Diaz added, “Bone mass is really important in your twenties – after that, we don’t build much bone anymore. Your twenties are your best chance to build bone through nutrition, physical activity and strength training.”

As for women in their 30s , Diaz noted that they should seriously think about their fertility. She further explained that after 35 years old, women’s eggs start to “dwindle.” She pointed out, “There’s no way of knowing until you test yourself. That might be something you want to do in your early thirties if your fertility is important to you.”

Diaz also has advice for women in their 40s saying that they should stop stressing and start on enjoying their life. The actress shared, “Make connections, make friends, join communities, and really honor yourself. You’re getting ready to make that transition to menopause, so pay attention to where you’re at emotionally, physically and mentally. The women who stress have it longer and harder, but the ones who accept it have it shorter and less severe.”

“The Longevity Book” will be available by April 5. Diaz wrote it together with Sandra Bank, the same co-writer she partnered with in her 2013 book “The Body Book.”
