Not surprising, in this age of instant information, more and more, people are focused on obtaining a healthy and youthful life – the good life. In other words, the search for quality old age is on.
Without a doubt, it’s an exciting time to be alive. The ability to cure disease and save lives (all advances in modern medicine) has delivered us the promise of a longer, healthier life than our ancestors were privileged to. But, promising advanced years, doesn’t promise health along with it and without health, what’s the use of hanging around?
The reality is, a decent old age is something that only we can deliver and it can’t happen unless we take personal responsibility for our health now. What we do now in regards to our health, sets the table for our future years. How do you want to live? Fully independent and free of disability, full of vital energy and able to dance into the night? Or, chained to a wheel-chair, only able to get up with the help of others? The choice is always ours.
Those who succeed with anti-aging practices believe in the values of independence, productivity and self-care in later life. These values are at the forefront of their personal belief system now (yes, the clock is ticking). For these healthy, longevity seekers, anti-aging practices become a lifestyle drive now – a way to live life so they can enjoy the results, not only now, but, later on.
If we want to follow in their footsteps and enjoy healthy longevity, we must adhere to the same values. The more often we choose growth over instant gratification, the stronger we become.
Choosing to act responsibly is the key. It helps us to develop a strong sense of personal responsibility for our health – helping us to stay focused on long-term choices.
Healthy choices/habits strengthen and nourish both the body and the mind. As they grow and develop, they strengthen our inner resources, reinforcing all our habits, propelling us towards real health, real growth and real success.
Neglecting our health now, earns us misery in old age. What we eat, how much exercise we get and how peaceful our mind is are all critical players in our quest towards healthy longevity. Everything we do should be done with an awareness of what it will do to our aging process – contribute to or subtract from.
The goals of anti-aging lifestyle, no matter the age:
Robust healing and cell renewal – activating the self-healing processes
Healthier overall – beyond simply “not being sick”
Slow the aging process
Remain strong and energetic, living a peak performance life
Improving body composition (muscle to fat ratio)
Physically, mentally and emotionally strong
Being free of – and not at risk of disease
Wellness through every decade of life
Health span equal life span
Some basic lifestyle tweaks is all that is needed. Modifying your lifestyle from the type of exercise you do to the foods you choose to the practices you use for mind control and peace is empowered to provide amazing anti-aging and disease resisting benefits that are relatively inexpensive to implement.
The end result:
A longer, better life that can be enjoyed in a younger, healthier body.
Take command of your life, regain vitality, boost energy levels and lead a higher quality of life, now and later…
