Age gracefully and stay healthy in old age with these lifestyle habits
In this day and age, it is no surprise that there are hundreds of anti-aging products out on the market. However, there are many ways to help you grow older without looking at it. By incorporating a few changes into one’s daily routine, one can look and feel younger without spending a fortune. Many of these changes are ways to help you live a better, healthier lifestyle overall.
1. Eat a Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet
The health benefits of eating whole plant foods are endless; lower cholesterol, clear skin, weight loss, stronger heart and bones…
The list could go on. For example, eating whole plant foods (whole grains, vegetables, fruits) reduces chronic inflammation in the body and promotes insulin sensitivity; lowers the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancer….
2. Be Social
Social butterflies often live happier lives than those who like to spend their time alone. Being social means engaging with other people daily. Talking to the barista at the local coffee shop, going for a walk with a friend or loved one, or simply having lunch with your coworkers can lead to a healthier and more fulfilling life.
3. Practice Yoga exercise and also Reflection Daily
Focusing on mental and spiritual health is just as important as focusing on physical and social health. Yoga exercise is an excellent way to clear the mind and relax the body through mediation and movement. Reflection daily, whether it be meditation or simply thinking back over your day, will help you become mindful of how much power you have over your life and of the lives of those around you.
4. Drink Greek Coffee
Greek coffee is a healthy alternative to your morning cup-of-joe because it does not contain sugar, sweeteners, or creamers. Greek coffee has 0 calories and has been shown to have a lower risk of type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease than filtered coffees and other caffeinated beverages.
Plant-based protein helps you stay strong into old age.
5. Go For a Run
Running is an excellent form of cardio that also strengthens your legs and core muscles. Exercising frequently will keep you feeling young, both physically and mentally, and make healthy eating easier because it enables you to see the results of your hard work. In addition, you will be able to get out of breath without difficulty and have a lot more energy throughout the day.
Do not forget that aging does not equate to being unhealthy or depressed! On the contrary, by following simple healthy lifestyle habits, one can age well and stay young.
