The Number 1 Way to Look and Feel Younger!

In Fitness, gym, Health and Nutrition by Rachel SmithLeave a Comment

There are so many products out there these days that are sold as ways to make you look and feel younger.  Skin creams, cosmetic surgeries, super foods, cosmetics etc.   However, the irony is that there is one thing that we all have free access to that really is the number 1 fountain of youth.

Exercise!

Our life expectancy is now beginning to take a nose dive, and it’s due to entirely preventable circumstances.  Obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes are taking their toll on our longevity – and these problems were rarely an issue 50 years ago when we had less access to fake foods and were more active.

Our bodies need nutrients and waste products to be circulated around frequently to ensure that we function properly and at our peak.  Whatever your age, gender or physical ability, exercise will enrich the quality of your life in the following ways:

1. Maintain a great figure.

Life is just better when you look and feel good.  The clothes that you like fit well, you are more confident and studies suggest you are more likely to travel and take part in social activities when you have a fit body.

2. Reverse ageing.

Don’t waste your money on expensive moisturisers before you use exercise to increase muscle tone and skin elasticity through improved circulation.  Increased circulation allows more nutrients to travel into the periphery of your body because your blood is trying to help cool your body, so it circulates less in your central zones and more towards the outsides.

3. Mental health.

Manage anger, aggression, depression and mood swings with regular exercise.  Exercise releases happy hormones into the brain to make you feel good and also help you sleep better!

4. Increase confidence.

By challenging yourself regularly and meeting those challenges, your self esteem improves.  You can also make friends at the gym who can help to keep you positive!  It feels good to think people are noticing you because of your great figure rather than because of the size of your bum.

The World Health Organisation recommends 3-4 hours of moderate exercise every week, or about 30 minutes per day to experience the benefits listed above.  The average Australian spends more than 7 times that amount of time each week watching television, surfing the net or on social media.
