AARP Bulletin just came to my house the other day, and the cover said in BOLD letters…LIVE LONGER!
I was so excited…even though I hated the day my AARP card came in the mail, I love the magazine that comes monthly. As an anti-aging expert, I love to hear what “other” people are hearing. I do have to say, that most of the time I see why people are so confused. The articles are always either to medical for people to understand, or involve steps and fads that most people will not implement into their lives.
I LOVE helping people feel more energy! I am actually called the “energizer bunny” by many, and just this past weekend, 3 brothers, guessed my age at 37. Nope….I am actually 57 and proud to look and feel better than I did when I was much younger.
You might be wondering how? So, let’s get back to the article in AARP and my thoughts as well. I was very excited when almost all of the 50 tips, I was either already implementing or knew about! I love the fact that they covered everything from relationships, to supplements, to exercise.
So instead of naming all 50…I will name my top 5 tips on aging stronger, so that you can live longer!
- Eat for energy.
Eating a nutrient diet is actually, more important than exercise. Even though I will cover “movement” in the next tip, if you are too tired to exercise or move due to a poor diet…you will never get off of the couch.
2. Move your body regularly.
Those that have desk jobs or are sedentary are known to live with more weight on their bodies, with more chronic pain, and are usually overweight. You must get stronger as you age, so that you are not hunched over, or to weak to take care of yourself.
3. Sleep at least 7 hours per night in a dark room.
Sleep effects your hormones more than being awake does! If you do not get quality sleep, your hunger hormones will be turned on, and your fat loss hormones turned off. You will also have a foggier brain and be more apt to be grouchy and have a lowered immune system.
4. Drink pure water. At least 6-8 glasses daily.
Water is the life force of every cell in your body. Without enough you will be more prone to weight gain, lethargy, and pain. My husband is a Firefighter and says every person that calls 911 over age 50, is in a state of dehydration!
5. Strengthen your body’s largest muscles.
From your back to your belly, your legs and your rear end…as we age, they get weaker and flabbier UNLESS you are involved in a strength training program.
I have created 2 programs that have helped thousands! (mainly women over 40, but men as well!) AARP – Live Longer is what I preach!
Forget hours of cardio, fad diets and harmful trends….eat so that you can live long, excercise to be strong!
