The nerves in your brain connect to one another to send messages and signals for your brain to function. As you age, your brain can lose some of these connections causing your brain to become slower in sending and receiving signals and causing you to age more rapidly.
By eating purple foods such as grapes, blueberries, pomegranate, eggplant, beets and wine, you can help protect your nerves and even form new ones to reverse aging in the brain. Add one cup of purple foods to every meal to boost your brain power.
If your thigh muscles are weak, chances are you will become more frail as you age. So it’s time to strengthen those thighs to keep you young and agile.
Standing on one leg strengthens your thigh muscles. Every morning, stand on only your right leg for 10 seconds. Then switch to your left. Repeat three times on each leg for best results. Being able to balance will not only strengthen your thighs, but your brain as well!
Stress impacts our bodies in many ways and too much daily stress can lead to early aging and health problems. Every time you get stressed out your heart rate rises and has to work harder. In order to lower your stress and your heart rate, take a nap!
Naps are extremely beneficial because when you’re asleep you don’t respond intensely to stress so your heart rate is able to neutralize and strain is removed off of your body. We’re constantly busy and sometimes napping may seem hard and out of the question, but taking the time to stop and nap every day can improve your health and increase your longevity.
