Time waits for no one, but you can convince it to give you a break once in a while. We may not be able to stop or reverse the aging process, but there are a lot of ways we can delay it a little. Being kind to your body and mind can help you look and feel younger, allowing you to better enjoy your time.
In many cases, fighting the aging process involves following good old-fashioned common sense. Eating right, exercising and getting enough sleep each night can go a long way to improving your overall health and well-being. Yet, just as important as what you do is what you don’t. We’re always making choices that can make us look and feel older, such as going outside without sunscreen on a sunny day.
Even though we may not plan on spending all day soaking up rays, UV radiation can damage our skin. Anxiety and stress also have lasting impacts on your physical state, so it’s important to learn some relaxation techniques so you don’t wind up becoming your worst enemy.
For some more crucial do’s and don’ts when it comes to looking and feeling better no matter your age, see the accompanying checklist.
