Aging is inevitable. But we can control our aging process and even reverse it. There are a lot of research studies that have concluded that a lot of the things that cause us to age prematurely can be reversed or at least slowed down.
There are a lot of reasons people live with aging. One reason may be the price. They get into debt and find it hard to pay the bill, their credit is bad and they cannot borrow money or buy a home. It’s hard to figure out how to live on a single income and not sink into more debt.
So, they take a second job or quit their jobs so they can save some money. There are also a lot of studies done that suggest that stress plays a big role in the aging process. As we age, we tend to become less stress-free and a little stressed. We have less flexibility and a lot less time to do fun activities. The stresses in our lives may add up to the aging process and make it worse.
Some of the research studies show that eating right can slow down or reverse aging. Good nutrition, adequate rest, and exercise can slow the aging process. Experts have concluded that the right amount of rest, enough sleep and a healthy diet are all important to slowing the aging process.
If you eat certain foods you can slow down your aging. So can drinking lots of water. Of course, exercise and getting the proper amount of rest are essential to slowing down the aging process.
Stopping smoking can also slow down the aging process. Those who smoke are statistically more likely to die sooner. So if you are at risk of early death, stop smoking. Even if you may not feel like it, you will be healthier.
Other research studies suggest that the sun is healthy for your skin and helps prevent cancer. Keeping your skin healthy, using sunscreen, and keeping your body healthy all help to slow down the aging process. People who use tanning beds are more likely to get skin cancer, so keep your skin safe from exposure to the sun by not using tanning beds.
Not only is it beneficial to the skin, the health experts say that using sunlight can also be good for the heart. Research indicates that those who use sunscreen and go outside and sunbathe are less likely to develop cardiovascular diseases. Also, vitamin D is good for the heart and has been shown to slow down the aging process.
Of course, each person is different and there are certain aspects of aging that will make you feel emotional pain. One study found that a person who loses his or her mother or grandmother, ages five to nine, tends to age at a slower rate than someone who lost a parent when they were younger. In other words, the new parent can be a wonderful part of a child’s life and can add years to that person’s life.
The older person who loses his or her parents loses out on so much and usually has to go through more grief and emotional pain to get over the loss of his or her new grandparents, as compared to the child who lost his or her parent. A child should be celebrating the loss of a parent; it shouldn’t be a cause for a grieving process.
Finally, losing one’s parents or becoming a grandparent is a cosmetic process. The adult should focus on living a happy life and enjoying the things he or she enjoys. Living with aging does not have to be painful and sad.
