There are many stereotypes and myths about aging, mostly about not being able to see or hear. In fact, now more than ever before, aging is a process that doesn’t interfere with quality of life. Here are a few tips to keep in mind so you can be one of those who are living the good life.
Turn that frown upside down to avoid wrinkles and lines. It sounds silly, but it really is true. Do your best to stop frowning. If you feel a frown coming on, give yourself a quick pinch. It may take time, but you will learn how to stop eventually.
The key to dealing with aging is ignoring the numbers. It is easy to drive yourself to distraction focusing on all your numbers: your age, your height and your weight. Let the doctor worry about the numbers and get on with your life. As you get older, fun is more important than numbers.
Take resveratrol. Calorie restriction is sometimes effective in combating aging. Better yet, resveratrol is a naturally occurring anti-aging agent found in nuts and grapes. Resveratrol is also in roots of the Japanese knotweed plant, which is the source for resveratrol in different supplements. Resveratol is also found within Senna quinquangulata roots as well.
Increase the amount of time you spend working out. The aging process slows your metabolism, so you must work harder to burn calories. Consider a brisk walk several times a week. Have two strength-training sessions per week. Keeping your body fit and strong will help minimize the negative impacts of aging.
Find different ways to personalize your home. As we get older, we may find that we are not living in the place that we once thought was going to be home for the rest of our days. If you do change your living arrangements, include lots of special things in your new space to make it feel warm, homey, and welcoming.
Get a good night’s sleep every night. Try to get at least seven or nine hours of sleep every night. Depression and heart-related problems have been connected to people not getting enough sleep every night.
It is a good idea to avoid using powdery make-up and foundation on aging skin. As you age, your skin will need to be hydrated even more. Try basing your makeup on less intrusive products like eyeliner, mascara, and lip gloss.
Try to keep your eyes healthy as you age. Some loss of eyesight is inevitable as you grow older, but you can be proactive in preventing damaging eye disease with regular eye exams and screenings.
Minimize exposure to extreme temperatures. Skin damage can be caused by intense heat and cold. Damage can range anywhere from minor burns and chapping to skin cancer.
Enjoy yourself! You finally have the choice of how you want to spend your time, and the option to do whatever you want. Take the time to experience and enjoy life.
Instead of feeling down, this time in your life should be used to enjoy yourself. Get the most out of your golden years by following the advice in this article.
