HOW TO MAINTAIN A HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Looking and feeling good for your age isn’t just down to genes – give your body a helping hand with a few natural lifestyle tweaks.
Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could rewind time? Back to the days when you took sleep for granted and had more energy than you knew what to do with! Well, we can’t turn back the clock, but there are definitely a few simple ways to support you. Well, the effects of time, anyway. Yes, our genes are a key factor in the ageing process (thanks, Mum and Dad!), but lifestyle also plays an incredibly important role.
So much so that even the simplest lifestyle changes can make a big difference to how well your body ages, and how good you look and feel with every passing year. Staying active and eating a healthy, balanced diet, for example, have both been shown to help you stay younger for longer. Of course, many of us don’t exercise as much as we should – getting on your trainers or going for a swim takes motivation, not to mention time.
The demands of family and modern life can make eating a healthy balanced diet a challenge, too. Unfortunately, skipping breakfast and grabbing convenience foods throughout the day doesn’t always guarantee your body is receiving all the vitamins and minerals it requires. There’s also the fact that the body’s nutrient reserves gradually become depleted as we get older, too, which is why it can feel like you’re running on empty. Thankfully, there’s a helping hand to ageing well and that’s taking a nutritional supplement – a natural way to help replenish levels of important nutrients.
Cod liver oil, for example, is a rich source of omega-3, including eicosapentaenoic and docosahexaenoic acids (EPA and DHA). These essential fatty acids have both been proven to support healthy brain, heart and eye function, supporting your body against the passage of time. Taking a daily supplement containing fish oils is a simple way to help support your body while you get on and enjoy the important things in life.
Whether that’s walking the dog, playing with the children or feeling the sun on your face as you stroll through the park with a friend. In fact enjoying yourself with loved ones is the best anti-ageing tonic there is. Because it’s these precious moments in life that remind us what really matters: our health and happiness, and the people around us.
Taking care of your body means you’ll be able to enjoy more of these moments, well into the future. That’s the <real> secret to looking and feeling younger for longer, and it couldn’t be simpler!
