3 Easy Ways To Look And Feel Younger

Youth and vitality have been famously pursued throughout the annals of history. While no one has found an instant cure for aging, a magical elixir, or a fountain of youth, there are things we can do to tap into our body’s innate healing abilities. Current scientific research has found that while growing older is inevitable, disease and pain aren’t. It’s as simple as making a few easy lifestyle tweaks to look and feel younger.

Hydrate

Water is essential to every facet of your anatomy and well-being. The human brain, blood, and muscles consist mostly of water. Your bones also contain water. Water intake is vital to energy production and eliminating the fatigue and tiredness associated with dehydration. It also assists in healing your joints, as dehydration can lead to joint stiffness, pain, and discomfort, which can impair mobility. Skin is prone to wrinkling and aging prematurely when chronically dehydrated. Besides promoting a youthful radiance, water flushes out toxins in the body that cause skin disorders and discoloration. Drink 1-2 glasses of water first thing in the morning. If you’re an avid coffee drinker, drink water between cups of coffee. It’s also important to drink before and after you exercise. Replacing water lost through sweating and elimination is vital in keeping the body functioning properly. Did you know that when you wait until you’re thirsty to drink that your body is already dehydrated?look and feel younger - hydrate!

Get Moving!

Exercise lowers inflammation, helps you to lose excess weight easier, and increases your energy level and stamina. “15 minutes a day can increase your life expectancy by three years, even if you have cardiovascular disease risks,” states Dr. Joseph Mercola, MD of Mercola.com.

Exercise also helps to reduce muscle mass loss, which is especially important as we age. “Three pounds of muscle disappears every decade. If this goes on long enough, you wind up with a medical condition called sarcopenia, which simply means a deficiency of muscle. This loss occurs gradually. You may not even notice it because your weight may not change. The most powerful tool for building muscle is physical exertion. For my patients, I prescribe high intensity cardiovascular exercises and super slow weight training exercises. I find these to be the most efficient and least invasive,” says Dr. Frank Kaden, DC of Kaden Chiropractic in Hermosa Beach, CA.

Adequate sleep (about 8 hours a night) not only boosts your immune system and brain function, but also protects against premature aging, rejuvenates energy and vitality, promotes natural hormone replenishing, and function (which slows down aging); and helps prevent unwanted weight gain. Having trouble sleeping, try these tips.

Bonus: Be Cautious of These Youth Robbers!

These strategies will promote vitality when combined with a healthy lifestyle. It’s important to identify any factors that may be robbing us of our youth. Major aging factors are a sedentary lifestyle, excessive alcohol consumption, smoking, and a diet consisting of processed foods and refined sugar. Medications come with many side effects that may also compromise health. Discuss the possibility of natural healing alternatives with your naturopath.

Thank you for the interesting article, in fact you are right, being as active as possible and drinking plenty of water helps to look better. I work as a writer at https://writercheap.com/ and I constantly sit behind papers or a laptop. If it were not for sports and the right diet, it would be very thick. I try to move constantly, I go to work and work on foot, drink plenty of water and eat a lot of fruit. At first glance these are the most common actions, but they actually help to put themselves in order.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
