Live A Longer And Healthier Life


You should balance your activities with the proper amount of rest. Some
of the leading experts in the field of ageing now believe that regular
exercise along with the proper amount of rest may actually add years to the
life span. Results from a number of tests indicate that speed and muscular
strength of many of the elderly can be extended.

Leading authorities agree that this new data is going to shatter many
of the myths about ageing and physical performance. The conclusion now is
that the performance and ability of the elderly has long been underestimated,
diet, proper sleep and exercise along with rest and relaxation are all
important factors in preserving our bodies.

Laughter is one of the best things for your mental and physical state.
People are naturally attracted to someone who has a good sense of humour. You
can develop a good outlook and a good sense of humour by associating with and
surrounding yourself with pleasant happy people.

Recognise that stress is a killer. A life filled with stress can really
wreak havoc on your body causing a number of illnesses such as hear attacks,
strokes, asthma, gastric problems, menstrual disorders, ulcerative colitis,
angina, irritable colon, increased blood pressure, ulcers, headaches, etc.

There are different types of stress such as mental, emotional and
physical. Emotional stress seems to take the greatest toll on everyone. All
stress is not bad; in fact, life would not be very interesting if it were not
met with challenges. However, too much stress, too often with no effective
and appropriate outlet, does not allow the body and soul to recuperate. You
might review a typical week to see if you can identify things that might be
making you anxious or causing you stress. Once identified, stressors can be
attacked and eliminated.

Are you a worrier? Chronic worriers don't have more serious problems
than others - they just think they do. Many worriers try to cope by trying
not to think about their problems, but this just makes things worse. Doctors
say that chronic worriers feel less anxious if they actually spend a half-hour
a day thinking specifically about their problems.

Get plenty of exercise. People who are physically fit look good and
feel good. A good exercise regimen will lengthen your life. Improve your
appearance, build self confidence and help delay the ageing process.

Remember that you need to do something physical every day. If you don't
use your joints, quite simply they'll tighten up with age to create the
stooped, bent and worn out appearance we so often associate with old age.
Studies have shown that people with arthritis experience less pain if they
continue to keep their joints flexible. As one gets older, the bones tend to
get brittle which is why it is common for senior citizens to break bones and
especially their hips when they fall.

Eating right, getting proper sleep and learning to relax are all very
valuable in maintaining a healthy body and mind. And keep in mind that eating
healthy foods and avoiding those high in fats, sodium and cholesterol will
help to decrease your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and
associated problems.
