Stay Young 4ever

September 10, 2010 2 comments

Feeling a little run down? Then you are probably looking run down. The truth is age really is a state of mind. Don’t buy into the hype that you aren’t still beautiful and youthful at any age. So pick and age and stay there. (Well, I guess it isn’t that simple so I looked up some great tips too get young again. See bottom part of this post after the positive affirmations and photos.)

I look young.

 

I feel young.

 
 

I am young.

 

Things to STOP doing so that you can reclaim and enjoy your youth:

Stressing Out

Stress has been shown to accelerate aging and disease – anything you can do to reduce stress has to be good. So how about laughing more?Recent research has shown that laughter really does help us in managing stress. Adopting a humorous view of life’s difficulties can take the edge off everyday stressful situations. Laughter prevents stress building up and stops the release of damaging stress hormones into the body.

Dwelling on Experiences Long Past

There are also those that dwell in the past. Replaying past events and justifying their current condition denies them present moment happiness. Regrets take us away from the moment and lead us to unhappiness and the notion that we have been wronged leads to bitterness and hatred. In fact spending time dwelling on the past or future often leads us down a path of negative emotions. Worry, anxiety, depression, hatred and stress etc all contribute to the aging process because their effects play out in the physical world (our body).

Drowning Your Hair Skin & Nails w/ Chemicals You Can’t Pronounce

We often hear that eating foods that are rich in antioxidants is great for our health and anti aging; however did you know that natural organic skincare products like Purestuf have ingredients which can help with giving you even more antioxidants. Ingredients like vitamins E, C and D, green and white tea extracts are just some of the antioxidant rich ways to great health.

Eating So Much Junk Food

Add these “Best Anti Aging Foods” to your diet:
1. Water (See article: Benefits of Water Anti Aging)
2. Watermelon
3. Avocado
4. Cereals (Grain cereals contain complex carbohydrates that can help provide the energy that you need to keep up with your exercise programs and stay healthy. Aside from the much-needed energy, it also contains fiber and Vitamin B that are known to have rich anti-aging components.)
5. Blueberries
6. Radish and Turnip
7. Nuts

Skipping Out on the ZZZZZzzzzzzz

Sleep is the time of the day when the body rebuilds, repairs and re energizes for the next day. The skin is the largest organ of the body and without the proper levels of sleep, it will also be the largest age-showing part of your life. At the surface of the skin are millions of cells that die off each day due to environmental influences, dry skin and sun damage. While lotions and cream may ease the effects of these factors, sleep is the only regenerative cycle that can truly undo the effects of the day. Without enough sleep, the skin will be unable to rebuild those dead and dying cells and this is when aging occurs.

Mind Over Allergens

September 7, 2010 2 comments

One of my favorite posts about health was called: My Tiny Army. This post is an extension of that. Science Clarified tells us: An allergy is an extreme or overly sensitive response of the immune system to harmless substances in the environment. The immune system launches a complex series of actions against an irritating substance, referred to as an allergen. This affirmation helps you to be in control of your body and prevent that over-reaction.

My highly evolved immune system is so pervasive that it responds to toxins in my environment without over-reacting.

Mast cell stabilizers reduce inflammation by preventing the release of chemicals such as histamines from mast cells. You can tell your body how to react to these foreign agents.

Back to School

I doesn’t matter whether you are in middle school, high school, or college (like me) don’t psych yourself out of having a great year. Doubt and regret are very much related; rid yourself of the doubt and you won’t have anything to regret because you can keep your cool in any situation.

Kids like kids who are confident. If you don’t like yourself, why should I like you?

This will be an awesome school year!
