We’d all like to think we’re going to look like Sophia Loren, Lauren Bacall or even Bruce Willis when we reach our older years, and remain fit and good looking, while still boasting our youthful complexion.
But the truth is, these people take good care of their appearance – after all, their jobs depend on it. If we leave our bodies to take care of themselves with no help from us, we’re likely to run into problems sooner or later. Aging skin, sagging muscles, a bland complexion and many more unwanted signs of age can easily creep up on us without us realizing.
Anti aging and wellness go hand in hand with each other. If we take the time to invest in our appearance now by implementing an anti aging and wellness schedule for ourselves, then we will be able to reap the benefits as the years go by.
Keeping Yourself Active
Staying fit and active should be your first step towards an anti aging and wellness regime. Physical activity should ideally be built into every single day. We’re not suggesting you run marathons or swim miles at your local pool every day, but a moderate amount of exercise (ideally weight bearing or cardiovascular in nature, to keep your cardiovascular system healthy and your muscles and joints supple) is the key to keeping you fit and healthy.
The best way to fit exercise into your anti aging and wellness routine is to think about what you do each day and change your routine accordingly. Could you walk to work instead of drive? How about visiting the gym in your lunch hour each day? Maybe you could hop off the train a couple of stops earlier and walk the rest of the way into work?
Good Food, Good Health
The long term effects of regular exercise on anti aging and wellness are many, but there are other ways you can stay looking younger for longer and enjoy your later years more.
Diet has a big effect on our lives. Think about your car for a moment – would you put sub-standard fuel into it and expect it to run smoothly? Yet we do this with our bodies almost every day.
The secret to eating well to achieve long term anti aging and wellness is really not a secret at all. Eating plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables, less processed food and less saturated fat is the ideal way to take an immediate step towards a healthier and longer future.
Finally, take care of your complexion every day. Use a good cleanser, toner and moisturizer every morning and night to get rid of the toxins and dirt that builds up during the day.
If you implement these small changes every day, your body will thank you in years to come.
