7 health tips to slow ageing naturally

7 health tips to slow ageing naturally

Sharing is caring!

When you’re over a certain age, who isn’t looking for health tips to slow ageing?

I love my life, and I want to preserve my youth inside and out as much as I can. 

I certainly don’t view the desire to slow ageing as being vain like some might suggest. But when you look good, you feel good, lets face it.

And more importantly, if i’m internally healthy and youthful i’ll have the energy and drive to put into my children (some day) and grandchildren (some day) well into my old age, as in age the number only!

My mum is flattered beyond words when she gets told she looks in her 40’s or 50’s when shes actually over 60.

And she deserves it because she works for it. She’s looked after her body her whole life, inside and out.

Lets have a look at 7 health tips her and thousands of other women implement daily to slow ageing and preserve their youth.

1. They’re more optimistic

Now, you’re probably wondering how this airy fairy tip can slow the ageing process.

Well don’t be too quick to judge this one because surprisingly its pretty important!

A pessimistic person will more often immediately see the negatives in situations before they even consider trying to see the positives.

This isn’t usually deliberate either, its often a personality trait or the people we have been surrounded by in our lives.

Whether this be there personal life, work situations, or general day to day tasks, if you are pessimistic as opposed to being optimistic, you will carry far more stress and negative emotions which definitely contributes to ageing faster.

Now, stress is an unavoidable part of life. But, we can definitely learn to control the amount of stress we let into our lives.  See here how stress can cause premature signs of ageing.

Here are some ways to try to be more optimistic:

  • Avoid getting hung up on one thing
  • Remember that there’s always a silver lining 
  • Take control of what you can control
  • Don’t worry over what you can’t control, it can’t be changed through worrying
  • Deal with the past 
  • Every day remind yourself of three things you’re grateful for – there is ALWAYS something
  • Surround yourself with positive people
  • Remember life will always have ups and downs

 

2. Limit alcohol

Alcohol has so many negative affects on our bodies, and we simply just don’t need it.

Some of these effects include:

  • Fatty liver
  • Certain cancer
  • High blood pressure
  • Brain problems – blackouts, dizziness, nerve damage
  • Stomach inflammation
  • Over weight or obesity
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

Alcohol is a depressant.

Depression prohibits us from living full, rich happy lives. So why would we inflict it on ourselves when we can avoid this?

When we are happy, fit and motivated we tend to look after ourselves far better than if we are feeling lousy, hungover or depressed.

Limiting alcohol intake can definitely slow the internal and external signs of ageing.

    3. Exercise

    Performing regular exercise may help improve your health and reduce the risk of developing health issues such as type 2 diabetes, cancer and cardiovascular disease.

    Exercise can benefit you immediately as well as long-term.

    Most importantly, regular activity can really improve your quality of life.

    I recommend 30 minutes per day. This does not have to be strenuous physical activity.

    But getting up and moving around in some way can have many great health benefits. 

    Benefits of regular exercise:

    • Ability to manage your weight better
    • Reduced risk of type 2 diabetes
    • Lowered blood pressure 
    • A lower blood cholesterol level
    • Reduced risk of a heart attack 
    • Stronger bones, muscles and joints
    • More energy
    • Better sleep

    Feel better mentally

    A number of studies have found that exercise can help with depression

    • Help reduce anxiety, stress and negative thoughts
    • Better moods 
    • May help you feel less fatigued and improve your mental focus.

    Aim for at least 30 minutes a day 

    To maintain health and reduce your risk of health problems, health professionals and researchers recommend a minimum of 30 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most, preferably all, days. 

    4. High fat diet 

    A diet high in healthy fats, moderate protein and low carbs has many health benefits, much of which may help slow ageing.

    The Keto Diet  is the perfect example of this type of diet.

    The Keto diet (ketogenic) is a high fat low carb diet designed to put your body into a metabolic state called ketosis.

    Ketosis occurs when the body doesn’t have enough access to its primary fuel source which is glucose from carbs. 

    Ketosis is a normal process that happens in our bodies but the keto diet puts our bodies into this state continuously.

    There are a few different versions of this diet but generally the ratio of daily calories is 70% from fat, 25% from protein and 5% from carbs.

    Some incredible benefits of the keto diet include:

    • Suppressed appetite
    • Increased loss of stubborn belly fat
    • Better moods
    • Increased energy levels
    • Reduced inflammation
    • Better heart health
    • Reduced acne
    • Better brain function
    • Glowing skin
    • Strong hair and nails

    If you’re interested in a high fat diet to lose weight, improve internal health and have more energy, the 4 Week Keto Diet for Beginners is a great place to start.

      5. Drink more water

      We har this so often…  drink enough water1 … Yeah I feel the eye roll.

      But, there’s a reason it is such an important part of anti ageing and overall health. 

      Water helps to eliminate toxins from our body that build up through consuming processed foods, and simply living and breathing the air and pollution around is.

      By ensuring you get enough water each day will help keep your organs functioning properly, eliminate toxins effectively and have a much sharper mind.

      By drinking water regularly you will be able make better decisions and have more energy throughout the day and will be less likely to reach for food as a comfort or energy source to push through the day.

      6. Avoid overexposure to the sun

      Getting a healthy dose of vitamin D is important for maintaining a health body inside and out, but be careful not to become over exposed to the suns dangerous rays.

      There is the physical aspect of getting too much sun, which causes dry skin, pre mature wrinkles and sun spots.

      Then their is the internal effects of too much sun. Dehydration can cause our organs to stop working properly and then their is skin cancer (Melanoma) .

      Ways to avoid too much sun exposure and developing health problems:

      • Wear a good sun cream
      • Buy make up and moisturiser’s that contain sun cream
      • Wear a hat shading your face int he sun
      • Cover up especially after a certain amount of time in the sun

      People who live in countries with warmer climates are at higher risk of being over exposed to the suns rays and developing health problems.

      7. Health diet

      This one goes with out saying.

      You really are what you eat. If you’re going to regularly consume fast food/processed food

      which is all full of additives, preservative, sugars, salt & saturated fat, this will play havoc on your body, inside and out.

      Processed food is food that is no longer a whole food. This creates a build up of toxins in our bodies and our organs work over time to try and eliminate these toxins.

      An unhealthy diet consisting of processed foods and drink can cause weight gain, lower energy levels, fatigue, flushed and red skin, acne, dull eyes, thinning hair, brittle nails and of course many health conditions.

      A diet high in protein or healthy fats such as the 21-Day Weight Loss Plan & Wellness Guide or the 4 Week Keto Diet Plan for Beginners will not only help you lose weight, but also teach you how to manage your, weight, health and wellness long term.

      Conclusion

      These are 7 of the main and long term health tips to slow ageing naturally.

      There are many other things you can do to slow ageing, such as wearing a good quality moisturiser day and night, getting enough sleep, meditation, yoga, and taking supplements such as a good probiotic, I recommend Physitians Choice 60 Billion Probiotic.

      You coudl also take a multivitamin. One of the best that I can suggest would be Garden of life – Vitamin Code for Women.

      You could also use a collagen powder to help with the signs of agening. A great collagen powdder to try is Sports Research Collagen Peptides
