Aging – we’re all doing it, every second of every day. But, how well we do it – ideally with health, vitality and great-looking skin – is another question entirely. The good news is that many studies show that it’s never too late to embrace new habits and start enjoying the health benefits. In other words, it’s still possible to put the brakes on aging!
Aging is inevitable, but doing it badly is most definitely not – and aging well is far more under your control that you may realize, so now’s the time to work on embracing several of my favorite, super-supportive health behaviors. They’ll help you extend both lifespan and “healthspan,” allowing you to sidestep many of the health problems that can make aging so difficult.
So, if your goal is to slow down the aging process, there’s lots you can do to put the brakes on. One of the most important anti-aging moves you can make? Stopping inflammation. I’m talking about the fire that burns in cells throughout your body, wreaking enormous havoc and making you old and tired, and quite possibly sick, way before your time.
Aging – if you’re alive, you’re doing it. Considering the alternative, aging is a gift to be grateful for – and it’s up to you to age as well as you possibly can, even if you haven’t always treated your body like a temple. The good news is that many studies show that it’s never too late to launch new habits and start enjoying the health benefits.
By connecting more often with feelings of pleasure, happiness, and contentment, you can make an enormous impact on your health and over-all mood. That’s why I encourage everyone to boost the presence of joy in their lives. Sound frivolous or self-indulgent? In these demanding times, I’d call it enlightened self-defense.
