Aging is a natural occurrence that happens to our bodies, but there are various factors that can speed up the aging process such as stress, constant exposure to sunlight, and poor eating habits. These are just a few reasons why there are those who look older than their years.
However, there are those who are already in their 60s that look younger than their age. How is this possible? The good news is that there are a lot of ways in which you can slow down aging. It's just a matter of making small changes in your lifestyle to prevent premature aging from occurring. To get you started, here are ways that you can follow to keep signs of aging at bay.
Reduce your stress levels
Stress is one of the main reasons why premature aging occurs. Mental stress is a likely culprit in terms of aging as it wreaks havoc on the function of the body but this can be easily regulated by looking for outlets to alleviate the amount of stress that you are feeling. Exercise, yoga, even meditation can help lessen the stress that you are feeling at the moment.
Another trick for keeping signs of aging at bay is to eat wild-fish like salmon, sardines, and tuna just name a few. The reason is because these types of fish are high in omega-3 fatty acids which are known to slow down aging. They also contain antioxidants as well as vitamin D that can also combat premature aging so you will look younger than your true age.
Increase your water intake
Our body is composed of 60% water which gets depleted when we are active. Without replenishing your store of water, fine lines and wrinkles most likely to appear.
This is why it is important that you drink as many as 8 glasses of water every day or more if you are quite active to ensure that you remain hydrated for proper function of your organs and to slow down signs of aging.
Have more greens
Don't forget to increase your intake of leafy vegetables during your meals as these foods are high in vitamins and minerals that can combat free radicals that damage your skin and your health. What's more, veggies are also known to boost immune system, improve digestion, and prevent certain types of cancer. You won't regret increasing your intake of vegetables once you see how youthful you look.
