Secrets to Slowing Aging

“It is all in the state of mind.” That is what I thought first when I am telling myself that I will not be affected with aging. And indeed, it is a helping factor but there are more additionals that I need to consider in order to fight aging.

Exercise is the topmost way to fight aging. Engaging in a physical activity stimulates the connections between neurons, and it is juicing the brain's circuitry which makes the cells always on the go, making us looking younger and healthier. In fact, there are always that pleasures one can get out from exercising. It is the contentment of the feeling of being happy and healthy that satisfy the soul and that make everything in good function and activation of the mind.

Furthermore, exercise stimulates circulation which bathes brain cells in oxygen, "feeding" them to keep them young. This reveals that exercise causes the growth of new brain cells in the part of the brain that controls memory.

Moreover, the only way to boost oneself and get out from the negative infliction of aging is to quit smoking. It is the chemical that contains in the cigarette that destroys the brain to absorb and retain information, leading it to damage the neurons causing to lose memory which activates poor concentration of the person. Furthermore, smoking can also cause to accelerate the increase existence of wrinkles that makes the face to be sagged. Therefore, smoking should be stopped if we do care to save our health and our lives from aging.

It is best to protect the protective layer of what makes us whole, our skin. Through applying lotions with SPF 30 or with higher in content of that, this will save our skin from the excruciating heat from the sun’s UV rays which could damage our skin. The sun is not that friendly to our skin. Too much exposure from the sun’s heat damages our skin which makes our skin looks as if we are already in our 60s or 70s.

The most essential thing as well is to have more sleep. A person should sleep at least 8 hours or more so that he can have a perfect skin. Go away from the dangers given by stress and do not let stress take place in your perspective. Studies have found out that people who routinely cut back on sleep are more likely to be overweight and have other resulting health problems than those who get seven to eight hours of sleep a night.

Avoiding aging is always on the state of mind and on how one preserves to direct one’s health into active and disciplinary actions that always embraces and prioritizes health as first. There are ways to improve one’s health and to uplift the things that life leads to a chance of making things appear worthwhile, it is always a must to be healthy and be happy. Fight aging as much as possible to stay healthy and happier everyday.

The new guidelines that define pre-Alzheimer's disease

Alzheimer’s disease is a kind of mental decline letting the person with this kind of disease forgets one’s memory in a span of longer time. This forgetfulness effects to the loss of one’s memory leading to total impairment of the nerve impulse of the brain (hold visions of one’s memory) that transmit the transactions of the brain to a great loss.

But recent studies show that aside from the most common signification of one having the nature of mental decline, the new guidelines which were presented by Creighton Phelps, Alzheimer's program chief at the National Institute on Aging describes three phases: early brain changes, mild cognitive impairment and full-blown Alzheimer's.
But the guidelines do not advise doctors to change how they evaluate and treat patients now because such findings should reflect tools for research and further study of the said disease.

These guidelines and recent findings are a big help to anticipate that such nature of Alzheimer’s disease are occurring. Furthermore, with the information given, it prompts the doctors to initiate active study that would help ease the problem in a way that it captures to find remedies for better awareness and prevention actions that would be given and taken to patients who show such symptoms having such kind of disease.

Hangover Rescue

In the morning, people do usually get a taste of what the day might bring, at least physically, such as the sniffle that forecasts a cold. Hangovers predict a day of painful reminders in the form of a crashing headache and some vague guilt about self-inflicted suffering.

Hangover symptom is an extra sensitivity to the aromas and in order to find remedy on hangover, it is best to use oils such as 1 drop lemon essential oil, 1 drop juniper essential oil, 1 drop grapefruit essential oil or 1 drop peppermint, 1 drop rose peppermint oil.

Simply apply the blend to the pulse points, on your wrists or temples but one of the most effective ways to use the hangover formula is in a foot massage.

It is also best to add the neat oils to a basin-or skinful of hot water. Moreover, if you are pressed for time, add the oils to a cup of hot water, gently inhaling the steam for a minute or so. The hangover formula is worth bottling and it is best to take them with you so you can use it whenever you need to. Furthermore, it is best also to drink as much water as you can manage to alleviate the dehydration that comes from drinking alcohol. For energy, add a little honey to a herbal tea, such as peppermint, which is traditionally recommended for headaches.

Badminton is a good morning exercise.

Badminton is the best sport that I often play with my friends and sisters early in the morning. It is a good form of exercise that really keeps the sweat out from our body. Through running, jumping, hitting, catching and the staring of the shuttle with vigilance are that I can say that this sport is best for morning exercise.

Actually, you don’t need a tremendous oval for this in order to play the game. With just an open field where you can consume all the space for your active movement, then you are on your way to badminton.

Badminton as sport stretches all my body parts. It awakens my senses, making me feel active and cautious all the time. And of course, the fast transmission of the information like what is the best move to hit signals me to think quickly and logically.

For me, I consider Badminton as a good sport. I love playing it with friends and family. It also attaches social activity that helps me win friends as well.
