Stay Young with Exercise, Weight Loss, and Yoga
Want to rid yourself of the side effects of aging? The multi-million dollar anti-aging industry promises you that shots of human growth hormones,
estrogen creams, sleep induced supplements, herbal preparations and progesterone or testosterone gels to improve your libido will make you feel
younger and more energetic to restore your youth.
Although you might think you can prevent age-related diseases, improve sleep, lose weight, gain muscle mass and boost your sex drive, many anti-aging products are unproven. According to Arlene Weintraub, the title of her book, “Selling the Fountain of Youth: How the Anti-Aging Industry Made a Disease Out of Getting Old – and Made Billions” says it all.
Estrogen products may even increase risks of cancer and stroke. Some wrinkle creams and Botox have been FDA approved. But even they contain warnings on their labels about potential health hazards. Many medical experts believe it is only safe to take anti-aging regimens in small doses over a short period of time. Check out reputable websites, such as the FDA or the
National Women’s Health Network to find out the safety of anti-aging products.
Aside from approved products and cosmetic surgery, which improves physical appearance, it may be best to focus on natural anti-aging solutions. Diet, exercise and lifestyle routines provide you energy and youthful vigor you need. Feeling old is often a feeling of fatigue. It may be caused by not eating right or staying active.
Eating a well-balanced, nutritious diet, low in fat and calories, avoids tiredness and sleeping difficulties. Developing a healthy eating pattern improves sleep to feel more energetic as you wake up and throughout the day. Maintaining a healthy weight through diet and physical activity for as little as 30 minutes a day boosts your energy levels. Excess pounds only increase your feelings of tiredness and fatigue.
Avoid stress and anxiety in your life through stress-management techniques. Stress and anxiety are often natural occurrences from time to time. Although it may seem difficult to avoid tension through stress-management
techniques, anti-stress methods can be easily incorporated into your everyday life.
Take necessary break periods during difficult times and go for a brisk walk or do some bike riding. Daily exercises can be that simple. Enjoy yoga or meditation classes with friends. Practice these meditative exercises on your own at home to relieve stress. Aromatherapy, massage or just listening to soft music can provide calming effects that reduce stress and anxiety. Natural solutions bring natural anti-aging benefits.
