Aging Gracefully - No matter how hard we try the signs of lines and wrinkles will eventually happen. To what degree can only be determined by the good habits we have developed to date. So what can we do to minimize the impact of growing older? If we haven't done much from an early age it's never too late to start. There are many things we can do to ward off the effects of aging with much success.
I am going to list the positive things you can do for the maximum benefits of aging gracefully. Many of these ideas will not be new to you and although you have heard them before let me ask you honestly... are you doing them?
Checklist of Daily Anti Aging Activities to Grow Old Gracefully
Exercise - we need to keep moving. Granted we don't move as fast as we did when we were younger but doing some daily exercise is so helpful. I don't think you have to belong to any fancy gym. Get out and walk preferably outdoors and up hills. It is one of the most basic exercises that anyone can do. As our bones age we also need to do some weight bearing exercises. Sun Exposure - Do you wear your sunscreen with zinc oxide everyday of the year? Start today. UVA damage is causing aging, brown spots, cancer etc. regardless if it's 10 below or a heat wave.
Sleep - we joke around about getting enough beauty sleep. Well it is appropriately named and I would encourage you to get 8 hours per night. Our bodies need to recuperate and as we get older it takes a little longer.
These are some of the very basic steps for aging gracefully.
