Helpful tips to keep you feeling – and looking – younger, vibrant, and happy
Remember how exciting it was to get your driver’s license? How you counted down the days until you could climb behind the wheel and cruise down the road all alone; the master of your own destiny? Ah, the glory days of youth.
Yes, back then we were busy waiting to grow up. Yet now, it seems the tables have quickly turned in the other direction. Destiny be darned, we are getting older whether we like it or not. Rather than counting down the days, we are looking for ways to slow their passing. We’re seeking ways to minimize the signs of aging on our minds, bodies, and souls.
Fortunately, there are proactive ways we can make anti-aging less of an act of resistance and more of a process to be embraced.
Exercise your right to age: It’s simple—the more active you remain, the more active you remain. An exercise routine doesn’t necessarily have to mean joining a gym and committing hours every day to sweating, pumping, and grunting. What it does mean, however, is incorporating both cardiovascular and strengthening activities into your daily routine.
Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park your car the furthest away from the front door of the store or mall you’re visiting. Wash your own car instead of using the drive-through car wash. Take your dog for a walk (or borrow your neighbor’s dog if you don’t have one) and breathe in the fresh outdoors as you get your body moving and blood pumping. By staying active in small ways, you’ll continue to look and feel younger in big ways.
You are what you eat: We’ve been told this since youth, and guess what? It’s true! As part of the aging process, our bodies begin to lose vitamins and minerals. Our bone density shrinks and we are more prone to injury. By eating the right foods and avoiding the wrong ones, we can keep our bodies healthier on the inside.
Colorful and green, leafy vegetables offer valuable nutrients for your body. Lean proteins are easier for your body to break down and utilize than their fatty counterparts. Simple carbohydrates such as chips, sodas, pastries, candies and syrups should be avoided. Even white rice, white bread, and white pasta should be avoided. Opt for brown rice, wheat bread, and whole-wheat pasta instead as easy substitutions to keep you healthier.Take care of your skin: As we age, our skin loses elasticity. Whether from sun damage, genetics, or even certain medications, our skin shows the signs of aging to the rest of the world. By taking a proactive approach to skincare, we can reduce the signs of aging and actually improve our sense of well-being.
By using a daily sunscreen, applied generously and repeatedly, we can reduce further damage to our skin, even when it’s cloudy or overcast. By adopting a streamlined skincare routine , you can save time and money and extend the youthful glow of your skin. Taking it a step further, you can select products such as the NuFACE Trinity, the first and only FDA-cleared multi-solution device. Known as the “5-Minute Facial-lift,” the NuFACE Trinity includes the Facial Trainer attachment that has been clinically proven for improved contour, skin tone, and wrinkle reduction in as little as five minutes a day.
When we approach aging as a right of passage, not unlike earning the privilege to navigate our own vehicle down the highways of life, we can learn to improve the process and even enjoy the windows down and the radio playing our favorite tune.
