Preventing Premature Aging
Today people in the United States are living longer and are more aware of living a lifestyle that will prevent aging. More so than were their parents or grandparents. Manufacturers of products designed to slow down aging are much in evidence. This is a 100 billion dollar market. To get their fair share of money spent on anti-aging products the competition is brisk.
Power of the Mind
“You are who you want to be” and “you feel how you want to feel”.
Is the glass half empty or half full? A positive attitude about life in general can have the effect of a virtual fountain of youth.
Stress can build up inside and greatly increase the amount of aging chemicals in your body. When in doubt, give someone the benefit of the doubt, and enjoy how much younger it makes you feel.
Standing up and giving your seat to an older person on a bus can also be a way to prevent premature aging.
Trying to prevent aging by controlling your diet gives you a variety of choices today. Shall you become a vegetarian or a vegan? Shall you only eat organic food? These are not trivial questions.
Obesity is one of the biggest contributors to diabetes and heart disease. These kill hundreds of thousands of Americans every year. Keeping in good physical condition gives you a positive advantage in the effort to slow down the effects of age.
The importance of a Good Night's Sleep
A good night's sleep allows your body to re-charge itself while using a very small amount of energy. It can reduce the effects of aging. The less energy your body uses, the slower it ages. An afternoon nap will reduce stress levels and also slow down the aging process. The more you sleep the younger you feel.
Getting a physical workout every day and making sure that you at least take a walk will help you sleep better and have a positive attitude about everything in your life. The boost of energy you receive will benefit your business and personal life.
Cigarettes and Alcohol
These two habits contribute to premature aging more than most realize, and many times are the most difficult habits to break.
If you drink and smoke you have less energy and drive. So complete your daily exercises and avoid the habits that age you prematurely.
