How to Age Gracefully

Aging is something everyone goes through, but how you age might be much different
than someone else. The real trick is to do so while retaining a vigor for life. While getting
older can present a new set of challenges for many people, there are some major
benefits to living a lifestyle that fosters health and well-being. Surprisingly there are just
a few rules that you can follow to make sure that you are living in a healthy way. In the
next few paragraphs, you will find an exploration of some things you can do to age

Avoid Using Heavy Makeup

The beauty industry pours copious amounts of money into advertising by placing ads for
makeup in every magazine known to mankind. This results in the widespread usage of
powders and creams that are intended to create specific styles and looks. Over time,
these substances can put a lot of wear on your skin, drying it, and even causing lasting
damage from habitual use. This can happen because pores become clogged, and they
are the ventilation and excretion system for the largest organ in your body, the human
skin. Using simple makeup like lip color and eyeliner can go a long way.

Engage in Regular Exercise

Exercise is one of the most important things that your body can do. If you are active in
your daily life, you are far more likely to stay in control of your weight, and muscle mass.
Activity also helps get the blood pumping which can flush your skin with blood flow
delivering fresh oxygen and nutrients to your cells. Exercise also helps the body to
circulate lymph fluids which help carry toxins to places in the body where they can be
removed. Even something as easy as a trampoline can work wonders for these
systems. If you can get 2 – 3 workouts in during a week, they you can decrease
chances of heart disease by more than 28%.

Spend Time with Friends

Social time among other people is almost completely essential for living a healthy life.
Spending time with friends can help lower your stress and helps get you into more
activities. People who spend more time with friends have an easier time becoming more
physically active than people who try to do physical activity alone, so being around
others can work to also influence healthy behaviors. You also release hormones around
people that you are fond of, so reaching out to a good friend or loved one can be great
for everyone involved.
