Aging effects us all, however we all age in different ways and at varying speeds. While we really can’t turn back the hands of time, there are many things that we can do to mitigate the effects of aging. Nutrition, for example can play a major role with the addition of whole, unprocessed foods and more raw foods. Maintaining a flexible body with exercise and stretching is also essential. It has been proven that stress ages us; the stresses in the environment as well as the stresses in our relationships and emotions. And let’s not forget about germs and diseases we encounter in everyday life.
Perhaps the biggest fear we have in aging is memory loss. Sadly we may see it with loved ones or notice it in ourselves. Here again, understanding what can contribute to memory loss may help us avoid it or minimize its impact.
It’s not that we can stop aging, it’s that we can age well.
