Slowing Down the Aging Process

Slowing Down the Aging Process

We get older with every breath we take.  And with age come some inevitable facts like;  Your hair gets grayer and thinner.  Your metabolism will slow down.  Your reflexes will lose some sharpness.  Body parts will show signs of wear and tear.  Aging is inevitable, but there are lots of things we can do to slow down the aging process.

Many researchers have done a lot of experimenting to find new ways how to slow down the aging process. 

I find that the most important thing, for us to do is to be consistent in implementing healthy lifestyles and eating habits.

Here are a few easy steps to help you look and feel younger:

1. Detox – It’s important to start with detoxification, getting rid of toxins from our bodies. We are exposed every day to a lot of chemicals and hazardous materials from the foods we eat, the products we use, the air we breathe, and the environment.  You can detox your body just by eating healthy, consuming fruits and vegetables, and drinking herbal teas, and water with lemon. 

2. Food – Eating healthy foods every day will make you look younger and feel younger. Try eating foods rich in fiber, plant based protein.  Eat more fruits and veggies, seaweed, and beans. Taking natural supplements is also important.  

3. Exercise –  Exercise is a sure way to get more energy, it improves blood circulation, and strengthens your lungs, heart, and bones which will increase bone density and will make your body look 10 to 20 years younger.  It improves your body as a whole.  You will feel happier, more energetic, and more confident. Go on a walk, take an aerobic or yoga class, and stretch daily.  You can also invest in some free weight and lift at home. If you need a trainer or coaching join a gym.  The possibilities are endless.

4. Sleep – Do you get enough sleep? Having enough sleep at least 6-8 hours a day will make skin healthier, and in most cases clear up brain fog.  Having enough sleep is also really important because growth hormones are working during sleep. Old cells are renewed, including skin cells. Your skin will look fresh, and younger looking if you get enough sleep. 

5. Relaxation – Always take time to relax.  Relaxation helps to reduce stress, if you manage your stress you'll look and feel better overall. That "feel good" will show up on the outside. 

6. Positivity - Be Positive, a positive mind creates a healthy mind and a healthy body. Negative thoughts often lead to negative behavior. Meditation is one way to make positive thoughts.

In addition, below is a short checklist to take into consideration: 

  • Don't give up
  • Keep sex alive
  • Limit sugar intake (sweets and sugary desserts) 
  • Stay young in mind (age is just a number)
  • Stay productive (do something that brings you joy)
  • Have a sense of humor
  • Accept yourself
  • Stay open
  • Take chances
  • Learn new things (it's never too late to learn something new)
  • Don't drink
  • Don't smoke
  • Begin and end each day with gratitude
Be mindful, and enjoy your life every day!

The Skin

The Skin Skin is the body's largest organ and is responsible for numerous essential bodily functions, including breathing oxygen, eliminating carbon dioxide and other forms of waste, acting as a shield against toxins from the outside, and helping to maintain body temperature.  The skin is continually repairing and renewing itself.  It responds almost instantly to sudden changes in emotions, and who would have guessed that it is the body's main organ of sexual attraction.  The surface layer of the skin, which is composed of cells, sweat pores, and sebaceous glands, is covered with a thin sheath of dead cells, which are continually being pushed up to the surface from below.  If the dead cells are not removed, they can reduce and even block the skin's effort to breathe and eliminate waste.  At the surface lies a slightly acidic coating of oil, called the acid mantle, which can protect the skin against some bacteria.  Below the surface is a complex of sweat and oil glan
