Miami, FL (PRWEB) May 11, 2013
Scientific evidence has found that approximately 25% of the overall variation in human lifespan can be attributed to genetic factors and the rest is influenced by external factors. These external factors are behaviors that an individual has the ability to control - where and how you live. Taking early steps in healthy living, will in turn help one to feel and look up to their best potential.
TheBeautyPlace.com expands on Martha Stewarts ten golden rules of successful aging. Rule number one is to eat well. Consuming Salmon, which is rich in vitamin D and protein, breeds healthy, strong hair. Rule two is to maintain a healthy weight. One should not eat less than 1200 calories or exceed 1800 calories per day. The physical consequences of eating a healthy diet are apparent in having more energy, healthier heart, lowering the risk of Type II diabetes, and helping to evade both osteoarthritis and numerous forms of cancer. Rule # 3 involves staying physically active daily or at least 3 times a week. The American College of Sports and Medicine suggests exercising 3 to 5 times per week for at least 20 to 30 minutes. Exercising increases endorphins known as "happy feeling" transmitters.
Rule # 4 is to get at least 7 to 9 hours of sleep a night. Studies have found that people who sleep for fewer than six hours a night have a higher risk of dying earlier than people of a comparable age who sleep for seven or eight hours a night. In addition, sleep makes people more attractive. A study photographed 23 people after a period of sleep deprivation and after a normal night's sleep of eight hours. The photos were presented to 65 people who rated them on health attractiveness and tiredness. The sleep deprived group scored lower in all three categories. Night creams like Dr. Brandt Lineless Eye Cream can also lend a helping hand in giving you a restful night’s sleep. This anti-aging eye cream is made with botanical extracts and vitamins that when applied at night rejuvenates the skin around the eye reducing fine lines and wrinkles as well as puffiness and dark circles.
Rule five is to always wear sunscreen. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, one in five Americans will develop skin cancer in the course of a lifetime. Skin care products, like NIA24 Sun Damage Prevention UVA/UVB Sunscreen reduce risk of skin cancer and other negative results of skin damage: wrinkles, age spots, and dry skin. It is a lightweight, non-greasy face lotion that can be worn under face makeup.
Rule six is to collaborate with a good primary care doctor regularly. Rule seven is to find a passion and Do It. The key to success is to channel this deep aspiration to get where you want to go. Rule eight is to connect to others. Studies have shown that people who have a social support group are generally happier than those who keep to themselves. Join a book club or start a weekly mahjong game. Rule nine; stop complaining and change what you can, and accept what you cannot.
Martha Stewart's 10th rule for succesful is switiching up the daily routine and opening a time slot in the agenda for a fun and vibrant activity. Rebecca, lead beauty specialist at TheBeautyPlace.com, recommends a mani-pedi party with close friends. "It saves money and there is always room for some exciting distractions from the drab routines of daily life!", she said. Bioswiss 5 Piece Pedicure Set serves as convenient, hassle-free way to transport pedicure supplies.
Taking early steps in healthy living is the key to successful aging. Using these steps will serve as a helpful guide in improving one’s present and future quality of life.
