As we age, we’re bound to experience a multitude of changes. Some will be quite positive, such as becoming more patient and, in general, making better life decisions. Other changes may not be as pleasant, such as the body changing in ways that make us feel as though we are slowing down or breaking down. The awesome thing is that we are in control of how quickly our body ages and how young we look and, most-importantly, youthful we feel.
Below are some anti aging tips from self-proclaimed 50-year-old teenager, Roger Haeske. He offers up three very easy strategies that have helped him look and feel like a teen all through his 40s.
1. Vigorous Exercise
Haeske suggests that you sprint as fast as you can anytime you have a chance. He goes on to say that vigorous exercise will help the body release a higher volume of growth hormones.
It is a scientific fact that the most powerful, non-pharmacological ways to stimulate the secretion of human growth hormone (hGH) are through sleep and exercise. But why are growth hormones important? Researchers from Brunel University in the U.K. explain:
hGH has many varied roles throughout life, from growth itself, including the turnover of muscle, bone and collagen, to the regulation of selective aspects of metabolic function including increased fat metabolism and the maintenance of a healthier body composition in later life.
These researchers go on to state:
Ageing is often associated with a progressive decrease in the volume and, especially, the intensity of exercise. A growing body of evidence suggests that higher intensity exercise is effective in eliciting beneficial health, well-being and training outcomes.
2. Eat More Raw Fruits and Vegetables
Haeske has been eating a raw food diet for over 10 years…but that doesn’t mean you need to eat only raw foods. It just means you should eat raw fresh foods as often and as much as possible.
Eating fresh, live foods is pivotal if you want to be healthy. Haeske believes that consuming a good share of your dialy calories from raw fruits and vegetables can slow down aging. His suggestion is to create a raw veggie stew by blending up tomatoes, cucumbers, leafy greens, etc.
Of course, this is not a revolutionary concept. Most of us have had a green smoothie at some time or another. Blending up your vegetables into a smoothie form is definitely an easy way to get a good dose of raw, live foods.
3. Stay Positive
The last of Haeske anti-aging tips is to cultivate happy, positive thoughts. Negative thoughts will prematurely age the body because they create stress and discord.
Research shows that negative emotions, even listening to someone else’s negative rants or gossip, will re-wire your brain for negativity. Over time, you will find is more and more difficult to be happy. This, in turn, means more emotional disharmony and, thus, more stress.
So why is stress so bad? The American Institute of Stress elaborates:
Chronic stress is widely believed to accelerate biologic aging and support comes from studies confirming its adverse effects on immune system function, as well as how we respond to hidden inflammation.
Consequently, learning to stay light-hearted, positive and resilient in times of challenge can keep you feeling and looking young.
Organic personal care products, such as anti aging face serums, creams, and mud masks can help you reduce age spots, diminish wrinkles, and keep the skin glowing. Yet, you have to realize that these types of products – and really all beauty treatments – are even more effective if you follow the three anti aging tips in this article.
