So who doesn’t want to look young?
Everyone wishes to look younger and by young means “you look like 20 kinds of young at the age of 60”. By young doesn’t mean wearing a short dress or applying a lot of makeup, infact being young and healthy in old age.
So here you can develop some daily habits that can make you look young and healthy. Let’s begin with the first habit that you need to develop:
1. Take Enough Sleep
Sleep is the most important thing you need if you want to look young and healthy. Are you tired and stressed all the time? Do your eyes feel heavy? Do you have a constant headache?
These are all the signs of less sleep and you are in strict need of it. A total of 8 to 10 hours of sleep is the ideal sleep. A study shows that quality of sleep impacts your skin function and helps you look young.
2. Drink More and More Water
Are you drinking enough water? Are you hydrated all the time? If not, then start drinking water.
70-75% of our body is made up of water. It is important for survival. Without water, we can’t live. It also has some other benefits. Drinking water is helpful in making you look youthful, healthy and beautiful. It helps in making our skin glow, shine and tight.
Just think about grapes if they will not have water in them, they will shrink. The same way if your skin will not get enough water, it will soon turn into wrinkled skin. So to make yourself look young, drink enough water. Make this a habit. At least drink 8 glasses of water daily.
3. Daily Exercise and Workout
Exercises are the best way to stay healthy and young. There are many exercises that can help you look younger. Regular workouts help you to stay fit and fine. They also improve your posture, sleeping patterns, and many other things. The sweat that releases after a workout helps in the softness and dirt removing for your skin.
4. Eat More Vegetables
Our Mamma kept this telling us since we were a kid, right? But we didn’t listen to her every time. However, it is never too later to start anything. Go ahead and start having them regularly.
Vegetables are a rich source of proteins and nutrients. These antioxidants are helpful in fighting with the toxins in your body and keep your skin healthy. So if not yet then when? Start eating green.
5. What about fruits?
Just like vegetables, start eating fruits too. They are also helpful in keeping your skin good and healthy. Some fruits also contain antioxidants that help in keeping you young. Tomato, oranges, pomegranate and many more all are rich and loaded with the good stuff.
6. A little Meditation
In this busy life, we often forget about ourselves. The stress is not all healthy and good for you. Stressing may make you look older very soon. It is proved from various studies that stressing turns your hairs grey.
To get rid of this busy life, stress, and tensions, just start meditating. Meditation is an old age practice to gain peace of Mind. Keeping your mind healthy is equally important. So, start meditating if you don’t want to look old and dull. Meditation gives you a charisma, peace and so much.
7. Reading Books
Reading is the best way to go into another world. Getting lost in books is something so good, it can help you grow and improve your mental state too.
“When you want a break from reality, fly in fiction.”
According to a Yale study, people aged 50 years and above who read books up to 3 4 hours in a week are likely to survive more than a person who doesn’t read. So Read Read Read.
8. Show Gratitude
Show gratitude. Be happy with what you have. Be grateful to have a life.
According to some studies that are published in psychology today showed that those who are grateful have healthier eating habits.
After all, when you are grateful for what you have, you will have a positive outlook towards life and yourself. Hence, you will adopt healthy eating habits, early sleeping and others. That will eventually keep you healthy and make you look young for years.
