Here are 5 simple strategies that youÂ can use immediately to help slow down the ageing process in your body:
1. Eat less.
By reducing your overall food intake you can reduce the stress being placed on the digestive system as well as the impact insulin has on the body. However, it is important that you don’t restrict your nutrient intake. Therefore, nutrient-rich, calorie-sparse foods are the best foods to include in your diet, i.e. vegetables and fruits.
2. Reduce the ‘free radical load’ on your body.
Reducing the impact free radicals have on your body means that it will function better. It also means that you will have more energy, improve your health and may even reduce your risk of disease. Reducing your free radical load may be done easily by consuming antioxidants. Antioxidants are found in normal, everyday foods like, fruits, vegetables and unprocessed oils. They are also found in highly concentrated forms in supplements like, Super 7 Blend.
3. Perform a regular resistance exercise program.
Resistance exercise is perhaps the best form of exercise to perform in order to improve your overall health and well being. In fact, researchers at Tufts University many years ago discovered the weight training improves various ‘biomarkers’ of ageing including: blood pressure, blood sugar tolerance, basal metabolic rate, body fat, bone density, body temperature regulation and cholesterol/ HDL ratio.
4. Perform aerobic exercise almost every day.
The benefits of regular exercise cannot be over-emphasised. These range from assisting weight loss and improving overall body functioning and general health to improved feelings of well being and better mental health. All these benefits contribute to a far better quality of life!
5. Rest, relax and engage in pleasurable activities often.
In today’s fast-paced society the importance of rest, relaxation and having fun is severely under-rated. It is essential that we take ‘time out’ on a regular basis in order to recuperate both physically and mentally and to ensure that we enjoy life without letting it simply pass us by!!
