Do you remember your youth? All that energy and zest for life. Perhaps the ripe old age of 21 comes to mind. Young, carefree, and the sense of I can accomplish anything I set my mind too. I can’t help thinking about the lyrics to the Alphaville song, “Forever young, I want to be forever young.”
If only the legendary Fountain of Youth parable were true! If only its magical water restored youth to anyone who drank from it! But don’t you worry, turning back the hands of time and recapturing the qualities that are essential to leading a healthier, happier life is as easy as following these few simple steps below.
Get a good night’s rest. The recommended eight hours of sleep is vital for your health and well-being. When you sleep, your body is working to support and maintain a healthy brain function and physical well-being. Try this for six weeks and turn in early to get the required number of hours. You will feel more energetic and vibrant.
Fruits and Vegetables are loaded with vitamins and antioxidants. A healthy serving of both is guaranteed to make you feel refreshed and recharged.
Strength and weight training can help you feel at least ten years younger. This type of training makes micro tears in the muscles, which leads to the body generating thicker and stronger muscle fibre. It also keeps us flexible and improves balance. By strengthening your muscles you build stamina and bone mass. You will also be less susceptible to injuries.
Treat yourself to a pamper session at the spa. Go for an exfoliating facial. It helps fight against aging by stimulating the blood and lymph flow by buffing away the dry dead cells on your face to reveal the fresh cells underneath. Your skin will look brighter and more radiant.
