There is only one thing that in this world that is permanent, do you know what it is? Drum roll please: Change! Our relationships, careers, beliefs, and most frequently and noticeably- our bodies. From wrinkles to curves that we never knew were possible, our bodies continue to change every single day. So if we know this change is inevitable, what can we do right here and now to slow down the process?
Since become real life Benjamin Button’s isn’t a possibility quite yet, here are 5 proven remedies we can do today do to stop the dreaded aging process:
1. Drink water:
60% of our bodies are made up of water. If we don’t replenish ourselves every single day the water in our bodies becomes stale- ew right? We are supposed to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day,1.9 liters, in order to fill ourselves with new, fresh, YOUNG, water! It can be easy to forget to stay hydrated, here are some quick tricks: setting hourly water reminders on your phone or computer, adding a timeline to your water bottle to remind you to drink x amount by x hour, add herbs to your water like basil or mint to switch it up and make it more yummy!
2 . Diet: When reaching for carbs and sugar, you are triggering surges in insulin. This causes inflammation and causes our bodies to go into shock in order to break down collagen and elastin. Your body is now on overdrive to remove the toxins, which leads to more lines on your skin. Instead of reaching for these quick fixes, substitute it for one of these healthy fat options: coconut oil, chia, or hemp seed. Our skin cells, are all made from saturated fat. Bye bye sugar, hello fat!
3. Minerals: Unless you are superman/woman there is a high probability that you are not absorbing all of the necessary nutrients in your diet. Great news, there is a magic potion to provide us with the nutrients we need and it is called Shilajit.
This rich Antioxidant slows down the pre-oxidation of bodies cells and thereby delays the natural aging process.
In fact, India’s ancient Ayurveda has described Shilajitas the best antiaging herbal supplement as it prevents the decay and death of cells and the process of aging is controlled in a natural way. Shilajit Resin is pressed out from layers of rock in sacred Altai Mountains. It is a mineral deposit that is made up of humus and decomposed plant remains. It contains loads of vitamins, minerals, and Humic Acid and Fulvic Acid, which are key components to a good cleanse.
4. Exercise: Scientists have proven that regular exercise may be the key to reversing the skin's aging process. Endurance exercises decrease psychological and neurological changes, boosts good cholesterol, lowers bad cholesterol, improves cardiovascular health, and lowers blood sugar levels and decreases body fat. Resistance training enhances muscle mass and preserves bone calcium. Deep stretching and yoga calms down the nervous system and reverses signs of aging like sagging skin, loss of muscle strength, and slow metabolism.
5 . Meditation: Stress plays a major factor in aging. It is not necessarily about eliminating stress, it is about learning how to manage it. Meditation’s demonstrated capacity for reducing stress makes it one of the greatest anti-aging practices.
