Aging is an inevitable truth and an essential phase of the cycle of life.
No matter how much those high end and top notch cosmetic and pharmaceutical companies brag about the efficacy of their anti aging products, you should not fall into the trap, for no treatment, no cream, no concoction or pill can avoid the natural degradation that your body is bound to go through. You should instead accept it as a reality and make peace with it to age gracefully when your time comes.
However, there are certain essential tips that you can take care of and incorporate in your daily life to prevent premature aging and avoid looking older than your age. Read on.
Regular exercise and work out sessions, even if it is for a couple of minutes, works wonders for your body. Not only does exercise help you stay in perfect shape, but also strengthens the efficiency and functionality of your bones and joints and thus prevents premature osteo dysfunctions. Moreover, regular exercise serves as good therapy to boost and sustain your body stamina, keeps it young and athletic, and prepares the body to age in a healthy way.
As they say, ‘you are what you eat’. If you are fond of all that junk food that is high on sugar and fat, you better push them aside and adapt to healthy eating patterns. Avoid binge eating, and even if you are craving for a late night or middle of the day snack, brush aside the thoughts and get your hands on a fruit chunk instead.
Break Up With your Bad Habits
Smoking, drinking and using drugs cause an irrevocable damage your internal physiology. These bad habits reduce your lifespan, and even if you manage to live long, you will bear the consequences in your old age. In order to avoid rapid and untimely aging, you need to get rid of these habits right away.
Increase your Protein Intake
Proteins are the building blocks of life, the most fundamental constituent of living cells of your body. It is essential to include proteins in your diet in a regular basis so that your body is able to readily replace the dying and aging body cells and produce new cells and tissues to keep you young and fit for a long time.
Keeping yourself hydrated is essential to retain the elasticity of your skin. Water acts as a natural moisturizer for the collagen fibers present in skin, muscles and ligaments. It keeps your face fresh and healthy, prevents your skin from aging, drying, and getting wrinkles, and also keeps your muscles, bones and joints high in elasticity for free and smooth movement.
Avoid Stress and Stay Happy
Constant stress, feelings of depression, and anxiety will make you look way older than your actual age. Frowning, fretting over minor issues and keeping your brain continuously surrounded with negative vibes increases the level of cortisols or stress hormones inside your brain, and thus leads to acute or chronic mental and psychological disorders.
Follow a Regular Sleep Cycle
Nothing works better for your body than a good night’s sleep. Your body needs to relax at the end of the day and if you deprived it by compromising your sleep, your aging process will expedite well before time.
