How Fitness Helps Slow Down the Aging Process

Fitness is shown to slow down the aging process. You may be wondering how this works.

Think about how you feel when health and fitness are absent from your life. Unhealthy habits and sedentary lifestyles promote stress, illness, obesity, being overweight, and cause you to feel old. When you stop taking care of your body is when the aging process accelerates.

Fitness works on the cellular, emotional, and physical level. The better you take care of your health and fitness, the better your body will be. For example, eating nutrient-dense food provides your body with antioxidants shown to:

  • reduce inflammation
  • eliminate free radicals
  • improve your health
  • fight disease
  • reduce cancer risk
  • promote healthy skin and hair
  • increase energy and vitality

With results like this, fitness can be considered the fountain of youth. However, if you don't make time to eat right and exercise, you will eventually be making time for illness.

Your body ages daily, but there are things you can do to slow this process. Studies link eating healthy and exercise to longevity. Sounds like a health insurance plan worth the investment, right?

Many of us get so caught up in believing fitness is a difficult process. We also become frustrated without instant results and often quit before even starting. The negatives seem to outweigh the positives in your mind and ultimately lead to unhealthy choices.

As long as you're  taking positive steps toward your health goals, changes are happening. Have faith in the unseen and hold onto daily progress. Health happens from the inside out. This is why quitting is not an option because nothing ages you faster than living unhealthy.

Age is just a number but we also create how we feel at every age and circumstance. Your health choices either promote vitality or illness and you're ultimately responsible for the outcome. That's a lot of power and control over your health and how you will be aging over the years.

What is depression?

Depression is a common yet complex mental health condition affecting more than 16 million adults and 3 million adolescents in the US each year. People with depression feel sad, empty, or hopeless much of the time. It’s more than a case of the blues; depression looms like a storm cloud that won’t let sunshine peak through. It saps the joy of being with friends and family. People can lose interest in hobbies, sex, and other pleasurable activities, and they may have trouble eating or sleeping.

Some cases of depression have a genetic component, but lots of factors beyond an inherited tendency can spur and aggravate depression symptoms, including various environmental factors.

Sometimes people don’t acknowledge or recognize depression in themselves or others, so they fail to seek help from a health care professional. But without treatment, depression can linger for weeks or months–sometimes years–and can lead to worsening symptoms. Depression can wreck lives, friendships, and marriages and p…

Is the Latest Fitness Trend—Here’s Why That’s a Problem

Quick, what comes to mind when you think of a marriage proposal? Probably a man on bended knee. Well, now you need to add a lady doing squats to that image of betrothal bliss. Because the new trend out there is something called “proposal shape.” Yes, that’s right: Before you’re a shredded bride, you now need to be a fit fiancée.

It’s no longer enough to be skinny when you say “I do.” A number of today’s women are pressuring themselves to be hard-bodied by the time they say “Yes.” As in, “Yes, I’ll marry you! Just let me do a few burpees before we take a selfie so I can tighten my glutes in this fantastically new, flattering bodycon dress I happened to throw on even though I had absolutely no idea you were going to propose this evening! Hold my kettlebell.”

Proposal shape is a tight and curvy metaphor for how out of whack our expectations of the whole wedding process are and the ridiculous pressure women place on themselves during the whole bridal experience. Girlfriends who are pre-f…
