LIFESTYLE CHANGES THAT CAN HELP SLOW AGING
Exercise has so many benefits beyond just losing weight. When you work out, you reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, which both age your body's cells. Exercise also rebuilds your body's muscles, which allows the mind and body to operate more efficiently. When you add in some strength work, your body improves it's insulin response. Muscle stores most of the sugar you eat throughout the day. Thus, the more muscle you have, the less insulin your body requires. Too much insulin over time can damage your body's cells. Plus, you'll look better and feel better too through exercise.
Eat Smaller Meals More Frequently
Every time you eat, your body produces insulin so that your muscles and liver can absorb the glucose in your blood. When you do your best to prevent big spikes in blood sugar, such as eating balanced meals throughout the day, you'll not only feel better, but you will keep your insulin levels even, which helps to prevent cell damage in the long run. And don't eat too much right before bed as this spikes your insulin for rest.
Stay Active All Day Long
We all know that sitting all day long at our desks or computers is not good for us. Being sedentary increases insulin resistance and cholesterol levels and can damage cells. It's best to walk around some every hour in order to avoid the insulin resistance buildup and cholesterol increase. Set reminders, or use your step-tracking device to prompt you.
Lower Your Stress
Stress, once started, tends to build. Stress is definitely something that can age your body's cells prematurely. Finding ways to productively deal with your stress level can help you to reduce aging by your body's cells, and slow it down. Meditation is a great way to release all of your built-up stress. Exercise can help. Engaging in activities that you enjoy, such as reading or writing, will help lower your stress as well.
