Top Things You Can Do When You’re Younger to Feel Better When You’re Older

Top Things You Can Do When You’re Younger to Feel Better When You’re Older

This is an article I read that has some great pointers on simple things to do when we are young, that will help us feel better when we are older.  If you are in the younger generation, now is the time to take care of your body and health.  If you are already getting close to your golden years, it’s not too late to start following this advice. 

 

 

 

If you’re very young right now, then you may think that anti-aging articles and tips don’t apply to you. Those are for older people right?
Wrong!

In reality, those articles apply to you more than anyone else! After all, it’s too late to prevent aging once you are already feeling and looking a lot older! And when you get to that point where the crow’s feet and age spots are showing, you’ll only wish that you had taken the opportunity to protect yourself against aging when you were younger.

When we think of getting older, we tend to think of it only in terms of the negative. Getting older means slowing down, collecting new aches and pains, losing our memory and eventually losing our sex drive and continence… Not good!
But while this might be the case for some, it’s not the whole story.

Actually, getting older comes with a lot of benefits and remembering these can be a good way to avoid letting the thought of aging get you down too much.

So what can you do right now, to make sure that you keep your good looks and good health well into older age?

Lifestyle
In terms of lifestyle, there are a ton of things you need to do to stay younger and healthier in the way you look and feel.
For starters, try to avoid too much direct sunlight. UV rays damage the skin cells and while you might think nothing of this; it makes a huge cumulative difference that is very apparent when you’re older!

Likewise, you absolutely have to make sure you are getting plenty of high quality sleep. This will help you improve your health in all manner of ways, as sleep is when the body restores cells, forms new neural connections and produces lots of growth hormone and testosterone.

Skin Care
The right skin care regimen can make a massive difference. Any good skin care routine should incorporate an exfoliator, some kind of protection and some kind of moisturizer. And don’t forget the hands! Often the hands are the biggest giveaway of your true age when you’re older!

Nutrition
Nutrition is massive important when it comes to the way you age. Many of the illnesses we associate with old age are in fact just the result of long-term nutrient deficiencies. If you ensure that you keep getting enough of your micronutrients, your body will be supplied with all the raw materials it needs to keep you looking and feeling as young as possible.

Movement
Finally: exercise!
And don’t just exercise: move more. Sitting takes years off of your life because it allows your heart to become weaker. What’s more, is that it also weakens your muscles, ruins your flexibility and damages your posture. It’s very important that you keep moving as you get older to avoid a hunched over appearance.

    Commenting from the “other side” of age 60, I hope your younger readers will take your advice, especially the advice about getting enough sleep. And, I wish I had known about “sitting as the new smoking” – I am paying the price of 40 plus years of working in sedentary jobs. Younger people, don’t do what I did!

    I think many in the younger generation think they will have plenty of time to correct things as they get older. The one thing that this article didn’t mention was the effect of tanning booths and sun bathing. Skin cancer can creep up without any warning. At 67 years old, I have been trying to drink more water to hydrate my skin. Thanks for stopping by Alana.

    I am 45 and have been worrying about my healthy for many years now. diabetes crept up on me even though I always ate healthier than my siblings. Guess what! out of eight of us. I am the only one who has it. Besides my dad. Makes em wonder what else will befall on me because of genetics.

    I am 42 and I do try and do things I walk often and I do drink a lot more water.

    Seems like sometimes genetics get in the way no matter how healthy we try to be. I have been trying to eat much healthier these past few years and I find I don’t even miss fast food all the time. Sorry you ended up with diabetes, hope you have it under control. Thanks for stopping by Sandy.

    I’m 2 years shy of 70, WOW, that doesn’t sound right. LOL I don’t have an exercise routine but I am always stretching and walking at work so I count that as my exercise. I have a cardio bike and I started doing 20 minutes a day a few years ago. Then I missed a few days and the rest is history. I keep saying I will start back at it, maybe now I will. Thanks for stopping by LadyInRead.

    Ah, water is something I need to drink more of. I get so busy at work, I don’t even think about it but I have noticed when I drink more water, my skin is not as wrinkled. Thanks for visiting Brenda.
