Natural ways to stay young
Ageing is a natural process that come when people grow. It comes with a lot of changes that no one enjoys. But because its nature we always have no options but to accept this sad aspect of life. If it was within everyone’s control, then there is no doubt that everyone would choose to remain young forever. However, as much as we cannot completely escape from growing old, this process can be slowed down. With these natural remedies you can always look young.
Recent studies have demonstrated that stress causes physical changes in the body that accelerate ageing. The hormones adrenaline and cortisol are produced in large amounts during stress and chronic doses of these hormones in the body compromise our physical and emotional health. They are highly associated with insomnia, depression, obsessive hunger and hostility and with this it is impossible to look young. It is therefore very important to ensure that that you stress less to avoid looking older than your actual age.
Food is an important component of life and a basic need that we can’t live without. But sometimes what we eat make us victims of lifestyle diseases and even ageing. If you want to keep yourself young, then you need more fat of the omega 3 class in your diet. These fats help in stabilizing mood, maintaining bone strength and density and preventing the visible signs of ageing. Omega 3 also helps in fat metabolism and this helps in preventing weight gain and obesity. Besides the omega 3 you also need more vegetables and fruits too. Ensure your diet is balanced and avoid too much cholesterol.
Physical activity and exercise
Most people believe that exercise only helps us lose weight, but there is much more to it than just weight loss. With good exercise we tone out muscles, build healthier bones and boost mood. There is also a close connection between physical exercise and a better brain power. Walking for just 10 minutes a day minimises your chances of suffering Alzheimer’s by 40 percent. Physical conditioning also minimises stress, depression and anxiety which clears your memory bank. Always create sometime to swim, morning jogs, run, hike and any other activity you like engaging in.
Massage is an awesome way to improve blood supply to the bodies tissues and the brain. It helps in keeping you young by eliminating wrinkles. Regular massage corrects poor posture associated with ageing and it ultimately helps in encouraging a more balanced and elongated body free from pain and deformities. Massage will also help you in reducing stress and anxiety that are all implicated in early ageing.
One way of remaining young is by ensuring you get adequate sleep. Recent researches have demonstrated that those who get adequate sleep daily age slowly as compared to those who work out themselves. Sleep minimises stress and anxiety and it also rejuvenates the brain encouraging better memory and brainpower.
