For many in our society, the quest for the fountain of youth is part of their daily lives.

You Are What You Eat
Our society consumes highly processed, nutrient-devoid foods on a daily basis. Not only do these foods not provide the essential minerals and vitamins the body so desperately craves, food dyes, preservatives, high fructose corn syrups and other ingredients are detrimental to the body speculated to lead to chronic disease as well as chronic pain. In order to avoid chronic disease, such as heart disease, diabetes, cancers and more, the body needs not only to avoid certain items in foods, it also needs to consume particular nutrients.
The best way to eat is to buy and consume the freshest foods possible. Lots of fruits, veggies, whole grains, and nuts and seeds that you can buy from your local farmer’s market is a great place to start. Certain foods are harvested at certain times of year and this is not by accident. It makes sense to follow the plan that nature intended for us by eating local foods that are in season to gain the most from our foods.
If you’re serious about eating to help with specific aging problems, such as wrinkles or joint pain, do some research and find out what specific nutrients have been found best for what issues. For instance, Vitamin C is great as an antioxidant and combatting wrinkles. For every problem, a nutrient exists to help. Discover how food can be your ‘medicine’ when it comes to aging.
Stress can cause numerous problems in the body both physically and mentally. Over time, stress can lead to heart issues, high blood pressure, diabetes, depression, anxiety and more. Many times this stress is self-induced. If you want to age gracefully take a look at the stressors in your life you can get rid of today. While you may resist the change, if you truly want to live a happy and healthy life well into your senior years reduction of stress is vital.
It’s no secret that exercise is key to weight loss and living at a healthy weight is essential for optimal health and wellness. Regular exercise will not only make you feel better physically, you’ll feel better mentally too. If you feel good on the inside, you’ll no doubt look good on the outside too. Many people report barriers to getting fit from cost to time constraints it can be a challenge for many to get moving. However, this is one of the most important steps you can take to age gracefully. After all, if you are fit into your later years, you’ll be able to move around and enjoy many activities that you otherwise couldn’t. This is one of the best ways to ward off the impact of aging.
