There is no denying that aging is part of the natural process that our bodies must go through, but just because we have grown older does not mean that we have to look and feel the same way. If you want to slow down aging, you need to realize that it has to do with more than the skin. The tips provided here will help you slow down the effects of the clock of time, both inside and outside your body.
Age is Just a Number
Scientific research shows that your calendar years don’t necessarily have to match your biological aging process. You can slow down aging by slowing down the speed at which your body systems decline at a cellular level.
Reduce Stress to Slow Down Aging
Mental stress will speed up the aging process and throw hormone secretion in your body out of balance. Be sure to practice deep breathing exercises, meditation, and even physical exercises like running to reduce stress.
If smoking is your bad habit, you have to quit. It is the best thing for your body and your health in general.
Befriend These Foods:
Garlic, blueberries, orange vegetables, leafy green vegetables, green tea, and fish are just some of the foods that can help in the anti-aging process. Even a single organic egg could help repair your body.
Sugar is a Method to Aging
Processed sugar is your enemy, so limit your usage of it. By helping form harmful molecules in the bloodstream, too much sugar will dry your skin and make it brittle, hence speeding up the aging process.
Get Enough Sleep
Lack of enough sleep will do more than get you puffy eyes and wrinkles; the body needs the rest so as to repair itself and produce the human growth hormone that will further help in the anti-aging process.
Whenever you go out into the sun, cover any exposed skin with sunscreen. Sunscreen will help to slow down aging by reducing the UV damage to your skin while still allowing you all the benefits of sunshine.
Drink A Lot of Water
Keep your skin hydrated by drinking approximately two liters of water daily; which will also help flush toxins from your body, keep up your bowel health, lubricate your joints and restore that youthful glow you may have lost.
Smiling is about keeping you happy and positive; it is a method to relieve stress from your body and your mind. If you smile often, it exercises your brain and keeps your mind sharp as you grow older.
I understand that in the world we live in today, the need to work puts so much pressure on people that they forget to take care of themselves. You may find yourself consuming fast foods throughout the week just because it is convenient, and when the consequences of weight gain come along, you may find yourself looking to ‘magic pills’ to heal your body, but this is not ideal.
There are a lot of ways to keep yourself looking younger, but the best way to feel younger is to beware of what you put in your body.
