You may be aging, but you’re doing so gracefully and kicking butt while you’re at it. No longer are 50 or 60 old. Heck no! Sixty might as well be the new 40 as far as we’re concerned. They say you’re only as old as you feel and you’re living proof. Today’s “aging” population are working longer, exercising more, eating better, and staying sexually active long past their parent’s and grandparent’s ages.
If being fit – mentally and physically – is important to you, here are some tried and true tips to help you stay at the top of your game now and in the future.
Get More Sleep – Yes, this may sound the opposite of staying active, but in order to keep that active lifestyle your body needs the rest. Sleep is healing and repairing. Day-to-day sleep deprivation promotes degeneration, as well as a body that’s prone to getting sick.
Get Outdoors – We work in an office building, we work out in a gym – when are we getting out and breathing fresh air? Go for a walk, a run or a bike ride outdoors for some fresh air and sunshine. Airborne toxins are one cause of health problems, including accelerated aging.
Move More – Surely you’re already staying fit with exercise, but it’s important to remember that higher amounts of moderate exercise is better than infrequent high-intensity bursts, which put stress on your body. Keep moving, but don’t overdo it.
Hydrate – No one is expecting you to give up your daily glass of wine, but be sure you’re also drinking plenty of water. Dehydrated cells promote wrinkles.
Even when we rest, eat right and exercise regularly our bodies, or more specifically our hormones, can fluctuate and change as we age. When the day comes that you’re gaining weight, losing your sex drive or are frequently overtired it’s time to consider hormone replacement therapy with an HRT consultation from Global Life Rejuvenation.
