As we age, our body starts to slow down and we’re not as limber as we once were; nor do we have the same amount of energy we did as a child. That’s part of the cycle of life; however, you need to decide if you want to increase your life’s longevity or not. “And that means you have to start building defenses in your 30s, 40s and 50s against attacks that may not occur until your 60s, 70s and 80s…meaning you can start to make your real age younger at any age.”
You’ve all probably heard the expression that--You’re only as young as you feel—that’s kind of what the authors of the article I mentioned are saying. You may be 33 or 43 or even 55, but still feel younger because your body’s real age is younger. So, what makes your real age young?
As an author and a freelance writer / marketing consultant, it’s no secret that I sit at the computer many hours during the day. In one of my posts from a few days ago, I discussed the health hazards of sitting for too long. I recognize that everyone, especially those who have desk jobs and don’t get much physical activity during the day, need to keep exercise as part of the daily routine. Eating a healthy diet, relieving your stress, taking vitamins also helps in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Check out the above listed link to find out more helpful tips.
So, do you feel younger than your age? What do you do to stay healthy?
