Grow Old Gracefully by Slowing Down.

How about a Cup of Tea?

Grow old gracefully. Aging does not have to be a painful process, or something you dread. Growing older can actually be quite enjoyable. Follow our helpful tips and you will see just how wonderful aging can be. Read on to find out what you can do to enjoy the aging process.

Working on your self image during aging is vital. Self image is important as western cultures often place a great deal of emphasis on young people and you need to keep your self- esteem while aging. Just because media and popular culture is obsessed with youth, it does not mean you do not matter!

Sit down and have a nice cup of tea to slow the aging process. Drinking tea has two-fold benefits. First, tea has been shown to be chock full of antioxidants and cancer fighting compounds that help keep you healthy. Second, sitting down and having a cup of tea is a great stress reliever and good for your body and soul.

Watch out for hidden hormones in your food! Too much of the food supply is laden with hormones, and chemicals that mirror hormones. When you are getting older, you are already dealing with hormone changes. Educate yourself so you can more effectively avoid eating foods that will interfere with your natural biology.

When you get older, it is important to know who you are and what you like. When you focus on what you like, and keep things around you positive, you accent the good things you have going in your life, and will not allow any negative emotions or situations to bring you down.

Consider volunteering with a church or community organization to keep yourself active and to expand your circle of friends and acquaintances. Many organizations rely heavily on volunteers and you can frequently find one supporting a cause or work you believe in. As an additional benefit, volunteering exposes you to others with similar interests, making it easier to find new friends or peers.

Keeping mentally active will help one to age gracefully. Mental activities take longer as we grow older, but just like a muscle, the brain can be kept fit with activity. Some popular pastimes which encourage mental activity are suduko and crossword puzzles. Doing a puzzle a day can keep brain fog away.

Never focus on the number. Don’t think about how old you are, and act the way you think you are supposed to at that age. You should act how you want to. There is no rule that says once you are old, you can’t do what you used to do. As long as your body can keep up, don’t stop anything based on your age.

As you can see, there are several helpful things you can do to make aging a happy process you can welcome with open arms. Aging is not something that can be stopped so you might as well do all you can to make it as enjoyable as it can possibly be.
