Let's start with physical activities. So, why aerobic exercises are considered to be anti aging procedures? Firstly, exercise is a good way to prevent such age-related diseases as heart disease, obesity, and joint, vascular and pressure problems. This happens because during the aerobic exercises blood circulates much faster, you breath deeply and most of your muscles work promoting favorable conditions for health improvement. Moreover, physical activities boost the production of necessary hormones (adrenaline, for example) that promote metabolism and facilitate calorie incineration, which make you look better reducing your weight and external features of aging. Secondly, 20 minute exercise sessions at least two or three times a week (this may be common morning exercises, jogging, swimming, or aerobics, etc.) will keep your body fit and filled with energy, which, in its turn, will help you to look younger and happier, raise your self confidence and lengthen your life. In this way, aerobic exercises can be called an effective preventive anti aging procedure that is available to everyone.
However, you should balance physical activities with certain amount of rest. Your body is not a machine. Work stresses, hurry, lack of sleep or excess of activity - everything reflects on you. So, you have to find a few minutes for relaxation and power recovering. And what should you do? Nothing complicated or requiring much time and effort - just a few simple steps to relaxation and health. There exist a lot of relaxation methods that help you to release the latent power reserve. Firstly, the simplest way - when you feel stressed or tired allow yourself a five-minute rest - sit or lie down for a while and think about the most beautiful sunset you have ever seen, or imagine yourself lying on the beach, hear the birds singing and waves rolling slowly near you. Then feel your body filled with energy and desire to act. It is very simple and much more effective than a "traditional" cup of coffee. Secondly, very health-giving turn out to be a kind of meditation when you completely relax every muscle of your body and fill them with strength. This is achieved also in a very simple way - lying down on the floor you mentally send signals for relaxation to each part of your body, and in respond these parts become warm and a bit numb. If everything is done correctly in 5 minutes you will feel yourself as just after an 8-hour sleep. Third and may be the most popular way to relax after a difficult and intensive working day is to turn on the light music, get into the warm bath and breath deeply dispelling all troubles and worries.
To sum it up, we should say that anti aging procedures like aerobic exercises and relaxation are the easy ways to keep your body in shape, to be always young and energetic.
