Staying young is a desire every person has. We all dislike change, and when it comes with wrinkles and joint pains the resistance towards it is obvious. While numerous people resort to pills and surgery to make it stop, you can also slow it down naturally.
Here are a few ways through which you can stay young naturally-

1.Give yourself a break

StressStudies show that stress leads to physical changes in the body that accelerate the ageing process. Surges of hormones adrenaline and cortisol leads to blood pressure rise and faster heart beat rate. Giving yourself a break from work and just reclining and relaxing might prove to be more beneficial than it is given credit for.

2. Consume more fat


Consuming fat has often been treated in a bad light. However, consuming the healthy kind, that is, Omega-3 fatty acids commonly found in salmon, walnuts, and seeds have benefits. They not only help in stabilising your mood, maintaining bone strength but also help in preventing visible signs of ageing by reducing inflammation in the body. Omega-3s boost the ability of the body’s enzymes to pull the fat out of storage from your hips and uses its energy. It keeps you happy and adds to skin radiance.

It’s the central motivation of all human activity. The ability to embrace life not just boosts self-esteem but also reaches way down and fuels the immune system, and improves cardiovascular health. Passion in bed can be more beneficial than it is given credit for. Loving touches release hormones, including oxytocin, which reduces stress and anxiety reducing ageing.

5. Drink red wine

According to the study’s co-lead researcher Rafael de Cabo, PhD, of the National Institute on Aging, resveratrol clearly reduced the risk of diabetes and liver problems in mice, leading to a significant decline in obesity-related deaths. But here’s the catch: “You’d have to drink 180 bottles of red wine a day to get the same benefits,” says Dr Roizen.

6. Do yoga

YogaMore energy, better posture, greater flexibility, improved mood, and less stress are just some of the rewards of this mind-body workout. “Yoga means ‘union’ in Sanskrit,” says Cyndi Lee, founder of New York City’s Om Yoga and a FITNESS advisory board member. “Through conscious yoga breathing, you become aware of the connection between mind and body.” That translates into major anti-aging advantages.

7. Bite into a superfruit

“Current studies show that they are more beneficial than other fruits,” says Dr Oz. Pomegranate juice has been found to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, possibly delay the onset of atherosclerosis, and potentially help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease; researchers believe it may also help prevent some forms of cancer from starting or progressing. Pomegranates can also protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays, according to a study published last March.

8. Sip green tea

At the present time,  it’s being tested as a way to help prevent bladder, colorectal, and lung cancer recurrence. “Green tea is an amazing compound regarding blocking the signalling network that is linked to the progression of cancer,” says Amy Yee, PhD, a professor of biochemistry at Tufts University and principal investigator of the cancer study.

9. Slather your skin with supplements

Vitamin-A-SourcesRetinol, a type of vitamin A (and a nonprescription, weaker-strength relative of Retin-A), is the most effective over-the-counter treatment to smooth the skin and prevent wrinkles. David Colbert, MD, founder of the New York Dermatology Group and a member of the FITNESS advisory board, who practices in New York City holds this opinion. Retinols cause the skin to gently peel, revealing a silkier, rosier, and more supple layer. Dr Perricone touts the benefits of alpha-lipoic acid, a potent antioxidant that naturally occurs in the body. “Alpha lipoic acid is a wonderful anti-aging mechanism,” he says. It has been shown to reduce fine lines, improve skin texture, tighten pores, and give skin a general radiance.

10. Do mental aerobics

MENTAL AEROBICSA study was published in last December’s Journal of the American Medical Association. And the study showed that brain exercises can prevent cognitive decline.Mental aerobics has benefits that can last for as many as five years. In his research, Dr Small has found that a two-week program of mental training can rewire the brain. “We’ve seen evidence on brain scans that memory improves,” he says.
