There’s no way for us to stop aging. Yet, there are certainly a lot of ways we can slow down the aging process. Here at our Manhattan cosmetic surgery practice, we aim to help both men and women age gracefully — not just by how you look but also how you feel about yourself!
Below are 5 easy tips that can help slow down aging!
1.Cut down on your sugar intake.
Researchers in this study figured out that over consumption of sugar, mostly from heavily processed sources, could actually accelerate the aging process. Processed sugars should not be confused with the natural sugars found in fruits.
2. Feast on vegetables.
There’s no doubt that vegetables are chock full of antioxidants. All those toxins that you encounter everyday contribute to aging at a cellular level, hence the importance of slowing down cellular degradation by supplying your body with antioxidants. Vegetables are truly a powerhouse of various antioxidants that your body needs.
While walking doesn’t expend a lot of calories (particularly if you’re thinking about losing weight) than other structured fitness routines, walking is an excellent activity to delay aging. It significantly promotes circulation and regulates blood glucose levels. A solid body of scientific evidence has also proven that walking will help you keep a sharper mind.
4. Do bodyweight exercises.
Sarcopenia, also known as muscle wastage, is common amongst the elderly. Bodyweight exercises would help prevent that from happening. You do not have to enroll in the nearest gym and get yourself a trainer for an extensive workout regimen. Resistance training by using your own body weight can help you build leaner and stronger muscles. This study reports that even lighter weights could actually help you build muscle as long as the target muscles reach fatigue. This periodic table of bodyweight exercises is an excellent guide!
5. Limit sun exposure.
Too much of the good stuff like Vitamin D from sun exposure will have those fine lines and wrinkles arriving earlier than expected.
