Summary of Anti-Aging Actions to Take Now
Adopt the longevity mentality. Live as if you need to protect and nurture your body, mind and spirit for 120 plus years. This is a subtle but profound shift in the way mostpeople live their lives. The mental attitude and outlook change in positive ways. Focus on living well. Expect to be healthy throughout life and through your Golden Years. Accidents and diseases are still possibilities but you will be better equipped to handle them if they arise.
Assess your current health. Take an honest look at where you are now. See your doctor for regular checkups. Or even better see an anti-aging doctor or specialist. Work with them to get a plan of action in place to improve and extend your health.
Relax deeply and regularly. It cannot be stated often enough that we need to reduce stress in our lives. "Good stress" keeps us motivated and alive. Bad stress, however, produces cortisol which ages and wears down the body over long periods of exposure. At the very least, most of us need to learn to more effectively handle stress. Yoga and meditation are excellent ways to relax and rejuvenate the body and mind.
Detoxify your body. Floss! There is plenty of clinical evidence that dental health is connected to the health of your whole body, especially the cardiovascular system. Drink enough water. Are drinking good quality water? Get a good water filter for your home and stay hydrated. Consider seasonal juice cleanses or fasts. Colon cleanses can effectively eliminate toxins from the body.
Detoxify your mind. This might come as a surprise to some but your mental clutter can affect your health and happiness. Recognize negative thoughts and gently release them. Your mood and experience of life may improve as a result. Be gentle with yourself. Chances are high that you are your own worst critic at least in your own head. Give yourself a break. Strive to be a better person and the whole world benefits.
Detoxify your life. Do you have toxic relationships at home or at work? Consider ways to reduce the negative impacts or get out of the situation altogether. Change the way you interact and you may find social situations improving.
