There are elderly people living a life like a young person running marathon, drivng actively and so on. On the other hand, there are some people who live almost unchanged from their 40s and 50s, like newborn babies.
If you want to be active even if you are older, you should get rid of your bad habits right away. The following habits cause aging:
1. Not being active
There is the term "couch potato" which means someone who sits on the couch eating potato chips and watching TV only. In the office, I sit and work all day, and when I become a couch potato in my house, it accelerates aging.
Lower body skeletal muscle usage is reduced, making it easier to lose weight and becoming more susceptible to injury and disease. Inactive life hastens aging.
There is no late age to start exercising. Having a habit of waking up frequently and walking 2 or 3 times a week helps to delay the aging of the body.
2. Ignoring potential risk factors
High blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol levels are likely to cause health problems. However, many people ignore these potential risks.
Most people don't show any willingness to improve abnormalities until it reaches stroke or diabetes. If you find signs of such health hazards before you regret after a major event, you should always take care of it through ongoing testing.
3. Exposed to toxins and poisoning
In everyday life, no one intentionally wants to be exposed to toxins. However, if you do not know yourself, you may be killed if you are exposed to large amounts of lead, mercury, arsenic, and other toxins.
Studies have shown that chronic exposure to even small doses can be equally fatal to health. Blood, body fat and accumulated in various tissues, such as normal hormone secretion is interrupted by our body system is destroyed.
When exposed to cigarettes or drugs, the body ages faster. The damage caused by addiction proceeds at a much faster rate than we think. Studies show that DNA damage occurs in just 15 minutes after burning a cigarette.
4. Have an empty calorie meal
You can not get health if you enjoy eating 'empty calory' foods, which are high in calories without nutritive value, or eating too much good food. There is only a side effect that aging is faster than normal.
In order to live a life opposite to the Mt. Calorie diet, you must live with a limited supply of nutrients and a limited supply of calories through fresh fruits, vegetables, whole grains and some meat. Sugar or salt-like irritant flavor causes food poisoning, so you should limit your intake.
5. Insufficient sleep
The lack of sleep time is also a problem, but the quality of sleep is not good for health because of the noise generated by snoring like snoring. Sleep or quality of sleep is one of the obstacles to maintaining a healthy and productive life.
Sleep builds a new network of brains and provides an opportunity for the body to recharge. It is difficult to maintain a clear spirit and a young and energetic life if you are stingy at sleeping.
6. Not taking care of stress
Stress experienced once in a while has a beneficial function in that it motivates to work. The relaxed attitude reduces the likelihood of uncomfortable behavior.
However, if you neglect the excessive stress, the story changes. In stressful situations, hormones such as adrenaline are stimulated to fight or escape.
Hormones and stress, which are secreted by this fierce momentum, lead to headaches and mental suffering. Chronic sustained stress leads to helpless life.
