As we age, we look for things we can do to prevent wrinkles, diseases, and cognitive function. The good news is that there are hundreds of things that can be done to help you age in the best way possible. Here we are going to look at six life hacks you can apply to your life today to help you age better.
1 – Invest In Large Sunglasses: The skin around your eyes is the most delicate and thin skin you own. It’s also the place that wrinkles tend to appear first. By wearing oversized sunglasses, you are preventing sun damage from occurring around your eyes and you are also reducing how much you are squinting. This means you will have fewer eye wrinkles as well as fewer forehead wrinkles.
2 – Make Time For Your Friends: Oftentimes we find our schedules to be so hectic that we neglect to make time for a social life. However, having a social life can help you age better in many ways. The biggest thing making time for friends will accomplish is lowering your stress level. Studies have shown that being stressed out damages your skin cells, which leads to premature lines. Stress can also lower your immune system leading you to a more likely chance of becoming ill. As a bonus, making time for your friends also means that you are more active both physically and mentally.
I have personally met people who even gave up on wanting anything at all due to having such a high level of self-doubt. Their insecurities had escalated to such a point over the course of their life where they eventually gave up on even considering that they had any level of freedom at all regarding their own choices.
This is a terrible place to find ourselves in and it causes a person to live a life that has been massively limited by the illusory constructs that have formed in their mind. Fortunately, though, with a little work and the right amount of determination there is something that we can do to conquer this.
Doubt itself, by its very nature is negative. It is something that denounces and turns down any thoughts of positive or action-inspiring suggestion. If left unchecked, doubt becomes a mindset that keeps a person completely closed off from the world of positive inspiration and it keeps a person confined to a self-centered and destructive ego.
Get In Your Workouts
Exercise is so much more important than making you look good. In fact, the health benefits are far superior, with looking good coming as a pleasant bonus. Exercise promotes the production of feel good brain chemicals, known as endorphins, which boost mood, productivity, and sense of well-being. In fact, exercise is a very important adjunct in treating depressive illness, and may in some cases be the primary management technique.
For best results, get in your exercise sessions at least three times per week, up to a maximum of 5 times weekly. You will be surprised how good you feel after 6 short weeks of starting a new plan.
There is a lot of uncertainty in life, whether in our personal affairs or in our changing and unsteady political climate. The strategies that most of us rely on to contend with such uncertainty tend to be self-defeating. When we face an uncertain future we often resort to feeling anxious, worrying, complaining, or being negative about events that may never occur.
But some people rise to meet uncertain times with hope and resilience. Remember the 2008 election of Barak Obama? He used the phrase “Hope and Change” as his byword for the election. Those three words resonated dramatically with a large percentage of the American population. With Hope, we can change those things that need to be changed. Without hope, life does not seem to be worthwhile. We need to develop such attitudes if we want to be successful in the face of life’s ups and downs.
While medication is available to help with anxiety, it should not be the first line of treatment you seek out, as they come with lots of adverse effects and cause the user to build up a dependence.
The better option is to seek out natural ways to calm the anxiety- those without lingering negative effects and which are likely to help you cope better in the long run.
