December 15, 2016

Like most people, you have probably heard hundreds of well-intentioned adages about aging. Here, we will show you some innovative ways to keep yourself feeling young for years to come.

Start taking resveratrol as a supplement. Resveratrol mimics the natural processes related to calorie restriction diets. You can find it in nuts and grapes. Resveratrol is also found in the roots of Japanese knotweed (Fallopia japonica or Polygonum cuspidatum), which is often a resveratrol source in supplements. Another source of reservatrol is within the roots of the South American shrub called Senna quinquangulata.

As you grow older, sleep is incredibly important. In order to stay healthy you should strive to sleep at least seven hours every night. Without adequate sleep, you may become irritable and pessimistic.

Try to spread cheer wherever you go. If you will make those around you happy, it will make you a happier person. Happiness is free, yet priceless. Share it whenever possible.

No matter where you live, give your living space a personal touch to make it feel like your own. Often as we age, we are forced to move out of our lifelong homes. If you do change your living arrangements, include lots of special things in your new space to make it feel warm, homey, and welcoming.

As you age, it is more important than ever to care for your eyes. Some eyesight is lost naturally over time, but you do need to have regular checkups; this may help diagnose a disease that can influence your sight, as well as stop any further deterioration.

Don’t go to environmental extremes. Every season and all types of weather have the potential to damage your skin. Cumulative skin damage will not only speed the aging process, but it can also be a catalyst for skin cancer.

Eat more fish and reduce how much red meat you eat to keep your heart healthy. The cholesterol in red meat can clog your arteries. In contrast, healthy fish is packed with ingredients that improve your heart health. Incorporate it into your diet and enjoy a healthier, longer life.

Start a new hobby or revisit an old one when you retire. Hobbies can help you stay focused on positive goals. Since you don’t have to spend all of your time raising children or working, you have much more free time to enjoy hobbies and activities you couldn’t squeeze into your schedule before. These hobbies may keep you doing activities further than the house.

Make sure your blood pressure is within the normal range. High blood pressure can be called ‘the silent killer’ because it is possible to have high blood pressure but not have any symptoms. With age comes a slow breakdown of systems including the cardiovascular system, this means you must be especially vigilant about monitoring your blood pressure. The sooner you catch high blood pressure, the easier it will likely be to control it.
