How Sleep Can Help You Look 10 Years Younger!

 You know what’s hardest about aging?  That terrible feeling you get when you look yourself in the mirror and think to yourself, “how did I get so old?” And yet…It happens to us all! However…  What if you didn’t have to age as fast as you are right now? Better yet…

What if you could turn back the clock 10 years… Would you be interested in that? Well…You can create an “age reversion” system that will make you look 10 years younger and slow down the aging process.

And it all starts with your SLEEP.  How do you do it?  One way is to … Get to bed at the right time.  Studies show that human beings get the most hormonal benefits and recovery by sleeping during the hours of 10 pm and 2 am. This is what sleep expert, Shawn Stevenson calls “Money Time”.

Sure, you may be sleeping from 1 am to 9 am and getting eight hours of sleep.   BUT…you are missing out on that “Money Time” when the beneficial hormonal secretions are at their highest.  Around 10 pm, your body starts to naturally create melatonin and wants to repair and rejuvenate itself.  Melatonin production happens most if your sleep is lined up at this time.

Want to stay young and vibrant?  Then you need to know that you get the best dose of HGH, the “youth hormone”, if you’re sleeping during those prime time hours.  So try to be asleep as long as possible between 10 pm and 2 am. Which means try to be in bed by 10 pm each night.  Your body will repair itself naturally and you will look younger in days!

And don’t forget to wear your Swannies ~ The Best Blue Light Blocking Glasses for Better Sleep Tonight which will block that nasty blue light from your cell phone, iPads, laptops, LED Street Lights when walking your dog and TV screens.That blue light is literally disrupting your sleep and keeping your mind active.  So…Block that blue-light out.

10 Easy Anti-Aging Tips

10 Easy Anti-Aging Tips

 From wrinkle creams to cosmetic surgeries, diet pills to hair dye, Americans’ penchant for products that mask the effects of getting old is downright voracious. The effectiveness of these products varies, but there are some tried and true ways to look and feel younger that don’t involve any scalpels, needles or chemical infusions.
  • Volunteer: Based on an analysis of the results of 73 separate studies, new research published in the journal “Psychological Bulletin” argues that aging adults who volunteer experience enhanced physical and mental wellbeing. Serving others in their community helped seniors stave off symptoms of depression, develop stronger social ties and was associated with increased longevity.
  • Break a sweat: Physical disuse is the number one thing that amps up the aging process, according to Larry Matson, Ed.D., co-author of “Live Young, Think Young, Be Young…At Any Age.” That doesn’t mean you have to hit the gym every day (though that probably won’t hurt). Simple changes, such as paying attention to your posture or picking up your walking speed—Matson suggests striding as though you’re late for a meeting—can make a big difference. Learn How to Stay Motivated At The Gym.
  • Manage your stress: The sky-high cortisol levels that accompany chronic stress can contribute to metabolic dysfunction and increased inflammation. Deep breathing, practicing mindfulness and adopting a daily meditation practice are simple ways to slash your stress levels.
  • Put out that cigarette: Smoking’s link to heart disease and cancer is no secret, but a recent study conducted on twins found that the faces of people who puff are more likely to display the physical signs of aging, including wrinkling (especially around the lips), sagging jowls and upper eyelids, bags under the eyes, and more visible lines around the nose and mouth.
  • Adjust your attitude: “Most people underestimate the effect of the mind, but research in this area is very powerful,” Matson says. For individuals who tend to see the world in a gloomier light, developing a more balanced, optimistic outlook can offer significant health benefits.
  • Minimize chemical exposure: Chemicals, both dangerous and benign, are everywhere in our daily lives. While there’s no getting around the car exhaust and other pollution in the outside world, you can take steps at home to reduce your toxic chemical exposure, such as investing in a water filter, cutting down on your use of aerosol cleaning products and being cognizant of the chemicals in your food and beauty products.
  • Drink responsibly: The research surrounding the potential health benefits of alcohol is conflicting, but moderation appears to be essential when it comes to reaping these potential benefits. Women in particular should aim for imbibing no more than two drinks in a single day.
  • Reconsider certain prescriptions: Many aging adults take a plethora of daily medications. This widespread polypharmacy can have serious health consequences. A new study found that many medications taken by older adults can significantly increase a person’s risk for falling, and the potential for adverse drug interactions increases with every added prescription.
  • Eat healthy: Despite the rise of complex fad diets, the central concepts of healthy eating are relatively simple: fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. If portion control is a problem, Matson says to remember the rule of halves; half of the pleasure of eating happens in the first bite and is reduced by half with each subsequent mouthful.
  • Exercise your mind: As with physical exercise, mental exercise is essential to staving off the effects of aging. “As we get older, we just don’t realize how much less we use our mind,” Matson says, “We get zoned into a particular job task and get good at it, but we don’t use other parts of our brain.” Maintaining mental fitness requires more than a daily Sudoku. Check out these 8 Ways To Keep Your Brain Sharp.
