How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are? This is that one question that keeps boggling my mind, but I never get an answer to it. Our age is actually just a number which tells us how to feel, probably after our teens we realize that play time is over, in our twenties we wants to study, work, put on some make up and party and make our life the best, by 30 we want to settle and by 40 we wants kids and after 50 we start thinking abut retirement and so on. For a minute remove these numbers from your life and would you still be following the same pattern? Probably no.
Age is nothing but a number. A number that restraints your mind and places a barrier that is only removable by your sheer will power. Staying young is only possible if your mind and heart are young. Mark Twain rightfully said “Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter”
Without further ado lets learn how we can fight the signs of aging and slow the whole process. Here are nine things you should also do to age slowly and retain the pink and glowing flush of youth on your face.
- Its all in your mind
Your age is a number which you keep tell yourself and feeling old! The first thing you need to do is stop worrying about this number. Live your life just like you want to, not because you are 35 years old so getting a new piercing may be inappropriate at this age. If you want to keep feeling young, then you have to stop telling yourself that you are old.
- Believe in self love
Loving yourself is not limited to loving only your physical appearance and not letting anyone tell you otherwise. Loving yourself includes a lot of effort to make your life stress free and full of positive vibes. They take care of themselves in any way possible even if sometimes it means putting yourself above everyone and everything. Saying no without giving an explanation is one of the first ways to break through and love yourself.
- Nurture you Brain
We take care of a baby with so much detail and delicacy similarly if we must prevent our brain from aging us inside out, we need to be able to take care of it in a similar manner. Managing stress levels is highly important to retain a young and healthy skin according to many authors and experts. Try visiting a therapist regularly to keep your mind at peace.
- Positive Vibes only
Steer clear of any negativity and surround yourselves with all that is good. Whatever happens in your brain directly affects your body. An orthopedic surgeon has stated that positive thoughts and emotions lower your blood pressure, boost your immune system, and even lowers the risk of getting diabetes, all that you need to age slower!
The key to always making your skin look fresh and radiating is keeping it hydrated. Drink as much water as you can but at least but at least eight 8-ounces glasses. This is the 8×8 rule which is very easy to remember too.
- More Hydration
Hyaluronic acid is the external element to keep you skin hydrated. It won’t only retain moisture to make the skin fresh, but it will also prevent it from leaving! They have been known to diminish wrinkles and improve the overall quality of your skin in a period as short as two weeks only! In other words, it’s the second-best thing after the holy water! (Is that too much?)
- Keep challenging yourself
The process of challenging your self is simple. To strengthen your personal development and brain activity you can enroll yourself in new courses. Learn a new language, some instrument or try out a new way of exercise. The point is to keep your brain working and involved. Working brain is equal to a healthy brain and that means even healthier body! Learning will keep your brain you and active.
- Home cooked meals only
Eating right is a part of maintaining healthy skin. Anyone who loves their skin and health will avoid takeout as much as possible because research has shown that people who cook their meals at home at least 5 times a day live longer by almost 10 years as compared to those who don’t! It’s not only pocket friendly but age friendly.
- Meditation and exercise
Meditation is known to improve psychological and physical health; moreover, many other studies have associated it with slow aging. Exercise obviously always keeps your body fully functioning which reverses the process of aging by a considerably long time.
Although, it is inevitable but there are ways to reduce the effects of aging. What we must never lose sight of is the fact that this is the cycle of life!
