Feel And Look Younger

Want to feel and look younger ie hold onto, or recapture your youth? Here are some simple steps that can promote new vitality:
  1. Quit smoking.
    Smoking has been held responsible for ills from heart disease to lung disorders, all of which can foil your plans for a long life.
  2. Drink only in moderation
    Heavy alcohol use can damage genes and inflame the liver. However, a drink or two a day can have beneficial effects.
  3. Try to get plenty of sleep every night.
    The recommended average hours of sleep per night is eight. The body needs time to repair cells and the heart to rest ; the mind needs dreaming time to stay sane.
  4. Reduce animal fats but increase fish fats.
    Reduce consumption of red meats, cakes or ice-cream ; consume whole grains, fruits, vegetables and plenty of deep-sea fish. The healthy fats in salmon, mackerel, and sardines help keep free radicals from damaging the body cells.
  5. Moderate your total food intake.
    Generally, we consume too much that is inconsistent with our level of activity, resulting in obesity with all the associated health risks. See Basal Metabolic Rate.
  6. Consider adding vitamin supplements to your diet.
    Intake of the anti-oxidant vitamins C,E and alpha lipoic acid should be part of the daily diet.
  7. Reprogram your vision of old age.
    People with a positive attitude towards growing older will generally live longer and have a better quality of ageing.
  8. Keep guilt out of your life.
    Be future-oriented. Guilt and regrets are part of the past. Evolving and changing is how we stay young. The past is past - leave it there ; think of the present and the future.
  9. Don't be afraid of change.
    Don't say you are too old. Always, we need to review past decisions with the courage to entertain change.
  10. Never retire.
    Retirement can be a debilitating disease feeding negatively into the total outlook on life. Even after formal job-retirement your life should be filled with useful activities ; you should develop a reason or need to get up in the morning.
