Titilayo Ilori

The aging process is inevitable. It is a process everyone must undergo. This process varies for different individuals. Some might experience sagging skin, pains in the joint which is common, poor eye sight, loss of memory, and so on. However, there are several lifestyle choices that can slow down the aging process. Find some of them below.

1. Get enough sleep

When it comes to slowing the aging process, having enough sleep is important. People who don't have enough sleep are likely to have beta-amyloid deposition. This is a protein that interferes with the functions of the brain.

2.  Stay positive

Always believe in yourself and stay positive. Your body responds to anything that goes on in the brain. Staying positive has a way of boosting the immune system. This in turn reduces the risk of blood pressure, diabetes, and heart disease.

3. Be social

Being social will help you a great deal. Create time to hang out with lively friends that will make you laugh and think less.

4. Protect your eyes

It is important to always protect your eyes, either with a face cap, sunglasses, hat and so on before leaving the house. This is in order to avoid damage to your eyes as well as your skin.

5. Exercise regularly

Exercising is a great way to slow down the aging process. It will help you stay healthy and also keep your heart pumping.

6.  Consume lots of fruits and vegetables

Fruits and vegetables play a vital role in your body. They both contain antioxidants that neutralize free radicals and also prevent oxidation that might cause premature aging.

7. Do regular checkup

Checking your health on a regular basis helps you to prevent and detect health problems early on. Also, getting your hormone levels checked, such as estrogen, thyroid, testosterone, tested regularly helps a great deal. Low hormones in the body can cause loss of energy, weight loss, and aging.
