How to Age Gracefully
- Take walks. Taking strolls can actually help ease depression anxiousness as well as tension. So whenever you feel like the whole universe is conspiring against you and nothing is just going the way you want things to go, walk it off. Make it a daily habit and you will feel its benefits. You will be able to sleep better and you will feel more at ease and rested when you wake up. Walking is also a good exercise that would benefit not just your mood but your overall health immensely. It will help lower your cholesterol level as well as lower your blood pressure. You’re risk of diabetes is reduced and it is great in managing weight.
- Sleep tight. A good night’s rest will ease your mind and body. It will also lead to a stronger immune system making you less vulnerable to illnesses. Medical experts agree that a good night sleep is crucial to maintaining a healthy body. Another benefit of getting enough sleep is an improved mood and better decision-making without all that ill feelings.Getting enough sleep can also help prevent weight gain. Did you know that not getting enough snooze at night actually can trigger weight gain? Here’s what happens when you don’t get your needed hours of snooze. The HGH or Human Growth Hormone levels in the body are reduced when you fail to get enough eye shut. This happens because muscle tissue is turned to excess fat. Lack of sleep also leads to the release of insulin and carbohydrates into the bloodstream which in turn will make your body’s metabolism slower. This is what would lead you to gain weight. So if you want to make sure that you are tipping on the healthy scale, get at least 8 hours of sleep daily.
- Eat a healthy and balanced diet. Make sure that your meal plates everyday contain the 3 food groups known as the go, grow and glow foods. These 3 food groups provide your body the nutrients it needs to perform its functions properly and maintain its integrity!
