Rejuvenating our bodies
When we are young we hardly think about rejuvenating our bodies. Our skin looks perfect, our self esteem is at high levels and we are filled with hopes, dreams and expectations.
When we get older things are no longer this way. No matter your gender, we all like to look better, our high spirit and both exterior and interior youth.
Some people might say that they do not have enough time to take care of them as it should. Does it require so much of your time?
Besides looking better, are there other benefits? Is your body the only important part? Are we neglecting the important things? The exterior is the only thing that counts?
To all these questions I am trying to reveal the answers in the following rows of this article. If you are interested, then you should continue your reading session. After reading this you might reconsider your position.
I highly appreciate the people who love their age and they are showing it. Accepting a certain stage of your life and feeling good about it is what makes these persons so special.
Each age has its own advantages. Some people are even more beautiful when they are forties than they were in their twenties.
Most people however are passing through a middle age crisis. There is nothing abnormal with that. And it might be the perfect time to start rejuvenating their bodies, mind and spirit.
Take care of your body
Rejuvenating your body implies many things. Your skin, your weight and toning your muscle mass should be some of your main concerns.
With the age, your skin starts to lose its flexibility and elasticity. Sometimes even the color of your skin might suffer some changes and dark spots might invade it, on your hands, neck and face.
Maintaining your skin clean and hydrated properly is the main thing you should do even when you haven’t reached your middle age.
The cosmetic industry these days offers a multitude of moisturizers, wrinkles creams and serums of all kinds. If you prefer to use natural products, which I highly recommend, there are many oils such as coconut oil, argan oil or macadamia oil that could easily replace the best moisturizers from the market.
Besides that, a jar of such oil could replace not only the moisturizing creams, but also things like hair conditioners.
The hydration process should start from the inside.
Therefore a proper water intake daily will be more than important along with the foods you choose every day. In order to rejuvenate your body, you should adopt a healthy diet filled with veggies and forget about fast food for good.
You can cheat from time to time but you should not turn it into a habit. I am not talking about a weight loss diet. I am talking about changing your life style definitively.
The last thing I will mention when it comes about rejuvenating your body is making more physical exercises according with your medical condition. I am not saying to become a gym addictive.
You must practice a bit of sport activities especially if you have a sedentary life style mostly. Walk instead of driving, climb the stairs instead of using the elevator and you will already improve your lifestyle.
Take care of your mind and spirit
Until now I talked about the easy stuffs. Most people know what they should do in order to regain or preserve their body weight and how to prolong the glow of their skin. When it comes about their mind and spirit things are not as easy as they seem.
We all hear everywhere that we should remove the stress factors from our lives, but we also know that it is almost impossible. This does not mean that we should live under this pressure all the time. We need to reduce stress effects each time we have a spare moment.
Your home should be the perfect place where you can find the peace you need. If your house is filled with children and bills you must have your secret place.
I know you have heard about meditation. Some people believe is a joke but it is not. As easy you might think it is as hard it proves to be.
You will not be able to do it from the beginning. This is the reason why, meditation exercises should be made gradually.
In order to obtain proper results, you need to clean your brain from all your thoughts so you can replace them with other thoughts, such as beautiful relaxing places, where the spring air breeze can be felt on your face and hair or where the salty sea breeze will moist your airways.
There are many videos and articles from which you can learn how to meditate properly gradually. Your first session might not even last longer than 6 minutes.
The most difficult thing is to completely silence your mind. This is why you will obtain the results wanted by practicing such exercises regularly.
Staying indoors, no matter how comfortable your home might be could become depressive. You should take advantage of all the days when the sun decides to smile at you.
No matter the season, taking a prolonged walk in a park could clear up your mind and thoughts. You should observe all the little things around you and discover their importance for the world balance.
All these small discoveries will make you feel the energy that only the nature could give you. Also the meditation exercises could be more successful while you are outside.
This way you will not have to imagine a beautiful and peaceful place, because you are in the middle of it already. After a few hours spent outdoors you will feel totally rejuvenated.
We all sleep, but how we do it is just as important. There were many times when you woke up more tired than you were when you went to bed.
You could hardly feel rested after a restless sleep session. I am against sleeping pills but you can find other ways to discover enough peace inside your head in order to have a restful sleep session.
Many people say that meditation fills them with the needed energy in order to perform all their daily tasks. Meditation exercises could also bring peace and comfort in order to sleep.
Besides that, the breathing exercises are the best way to relax your body and mind in order to sleep better. Many people do not breathe properly because they do not use their lungs entire ability to breathe and exhale.
A simple exercise is to lie down and focus on your breaths. You should inhale the airs starting with the upper side of your lungs and continue with the down side.
After that you must preserve the air in for a few seconds and easily exhale it. If you do that for free sessions in a row you will feel more relaxed and rejuvenated.
After a poor quality sleep, all the people around you will notice your tiredness. It shows on your face no matter how much makeup you put on and your energy level will be quite down.
Experts are saying that you should sleep at least 8 hours to regain your strength. This is not a rule. It differs from individual to individual.
The quality of your mattress is just as important when it comes about relaxing your body.
Rejuvenating your body and mind is not a difficult thing to do but we all should try it. You should learn how to respect your body, your mind and spirit in order to remain young and energized.
You should also learn to care more about yourself and to stop consider that a selfish gesture. If you do not do it, no one will.
