Optimum Health Tip:Eating Healthy
How to get more fruit in your diet: Skip the cookies and add a fruit to your lunch, top your cereal or yogurt with fruit and add it to your cooking.
How to get more veggies in your diet: Serve more salads, pre-chop vegetables for easy snacking, incorporate vegetables into favorite like mac and cheese, meatloaf and more.
The best foods are ones that don’t come with a list of ingredients.
Instead of worrying about what you should remove from your diet, think about the healthy things you want to add. The more health additions you add, the healthier your diet will become.
Consider planting your own vegetable garden. It encourages healthy eating and maintaining your garden is good exercise.
“I want to know why, if men rule the world,
they don’t stop wearing neckties.”
“I’d like to live like a poor man,
only with lots of money.”
“I hate housework! You make the beds,
you do the dishes – and six months later
you have to start all over again.”
REPORT: "Aging Analysis Helps You Turn Back the Clock"
No one likes looking older as they get older. It’s not fun to feel older either. What most people do to counteract aging is to develop an action plan.
Having a plan to combat the appearance and effects of aging is a great idea.
But before you come up with a plan, you need to know where your problem areas are. This way, you can be informed and know what course of action you need to take to turn back the clock.
Head to Toe Skin Analysis for Signs of Aging
You don’t have to be in your forties or fifties for the signs of aging to hit. It can begin as early as the twenties and depending on your lifestyle, your skin can age rapidly.
Their skin is the first place most people notice aging but unless you check frequently for signs of aging, some of them can sneak up on you. Then when you look in the mirror, you’re surprised by what you see.
The key to looking and feeling
young is to check for signs of aging so you’ll know how to deal with them.
Look for dry skin or flakes on the skin. Dry skin is a common sign of aging because your body is no longer able to hold onto the moisture the way it once did.
As you grow older, you lose collagen and that plays an important role in keeping the skin moist, plump and younger looking.
This is because your complexion changes as you age. You might have always had a smooth, even complexion but lately, you’ve noticed some red or blotchy areas on your face.
These are signs of aging that are often overlooked. Age spots are also common. You’ll see darkening areas of the skin.
Check your skin for signs of wrinkles. You’ll notice these more often as you age in particular areas.
Your skin loses the elasticity. It’s sort of like the same way the elastic in a skirt’s waistband loses its fit.
Unless you replace the elastic. On the face, you’ll notice that you have deeper bags under the eyes and the skin will appear darker there. You might also notice droopy eyelids.
Crows’ feet can also appear as a sign of aging. You’ll notice these fine lines extending from the outer edges of the eyes. They can give the eye area a puckered appearance.
The skin on your face will start to sag as a sign of aging.
You’ll see this on the cheek area near your jawline.
The skin gets loose and it usually shows up in the center of the neck area. When you do a skin analysis on the back of your hands, hold them out straight and relaxed.
Wrinkles and fine lines will show up and so will loose areas of the skin. You’ll see the loose skin around the knuckles and back middle portion of the fingers. Age spots are common the backs of the hands as well as on the arms.
A sign of aging on the skin around the feet is usually wrinkles and saggy skin around the inner ankle part of the foot. You’ll also notice dry, itchy skin on the legs.
Lab Work to Uncover Issues Associated with Aging
As you grow older, you’ll usually feel some changes, but not always. That’s why it’s so important that you stay on top of
lab work to make sure your body is functioning as it should.
As you grow older, vitamin depletion can be a problem.
As you age, your digestive system doesn’t always work as well as it once did. It’s as important for your vitamin levels to be stable as you age as much as it is when you’re younger.
A lack of the right amount of vitamins can cause health problems and even speed up the aging process.
You can also experience health problems associated with aging if you have a lack of the right amount of vitamins B-6 and B-12. A lack of B-12 can cause vision loss.
It can also cause anemia, numbness and tingling in the hands and feet. Plus, a lack of
this vitamin can cause you to become more prone to falling.
A simple blood test at your doctor’s office can determine if you could be facing issues because of aging.
You’ll want to have your thyroid function tested. Thyroid disease is more common in older people than in younger ones.
Progesterone levels should be tested as you age because an imbalance in this hormone can lead to cognitive problems, insomnia and mood swings.
Higher cholesterol counts are common in older people than in younger and this is sometimes associated with the body’s inability to process glucose well.
Taking Stock of Your Social Situation as You Grow Older
Aging can bring with it the desire to reflect on your life. You should take stock of what’s going on in your life and self check to see if what you’re doing and the way you’re living is contributing to your well being and your happiness or detracting from it.
Social situations are important as you age. They help keep you mentally sharp and prevent you from withdrawing which can lead to depression. Most people are happy with the career that they’ve chosen.
They find fulfillment in the work that they do as well as enjoy
the association of their colleagues. However, not enjoying your career, dreading what you do can accelerate aging.
If you don’t enjoy your career and it makes you question whether or not it’s where you belong, this can cause you to become stressed and stress always shows up on the skin.
Your career should make you feel fulfilled and it should make you happy.
Some people think that as they age, they should stick with whatever career they have whether they’re happy or not because the idea of starting over can be intimidating.
But it’s better to begin again and be part of something you really enjoy doing than stick with a career that ages you and you find no enjoyment from. Isolation can be a big problem with some people as they age.
This is especially true if
you’re reached the point where you’ve decided it’s time to retire.
When you’re isolated from your peers and from others, it can raise your risk of dying. Not only that, it can also affect your mood.
There is a link between emotional problems, stress, and high blood pressure. Plus, as you age, without social interaction, you can lose brain stimulation. This puts you at a higher risk for cognitive problems.
Isolation affects the happiness level and leads to pessimism, negative thinking and ultimately can cause you to lose interest in yourself and your surroundings.
Volunteer or work part or full time if you’re able. Join community groups. Travel with friends, family or organizations.

REPORT: "Aging Analysis Helps You Turn Back the Clock" continued:Give Yourself a Sleep Analysis as You Grow Older
Losing sleep can be tough at any age, but especially as you grow older. When you don’t get enough sleep, it can affect you mentally and physically.
Many people aren’t even aware that they’re having sleep issues. They only know that when they wake, up they don’t feel rested. They go about their day fatigued and sleeping doesn’t give them any relief.
When you don’t get enough sleep, it can speed up the aging process and will show, especially on the skin.
If that’s the case, then you probably don’t have sleep issues. But
you can tell if you’re not getting enough sleep because there are warning signs.
You might think that needing a nap in the middle of the day is something that’s normal. Napping in the middle of the day isn’t normal if you do it because you have to. It can be a warning sign that you’re not getting the right amount of sleep.
Plus, if you do nap, then it can be harder to get to sleep once you go to bed for the night. If you feel the need to nap it can be a sign that you’re not getting enough sleep at night or it can signify that you might have a sleep disorder such as sleep apnea.
Falling asleep at night can be harder as you age because the melatonin production can be affected. You might recognize this if you fall asleep when you go to bed but you end up waking up because you can’t stay asleep.
determine if this is the case by having your melatonin levels tested. You can also track your sleep at home by using a sleep tracking device.
The features of these devices will vary according to which one you choose. But many of them can tell what your body temperature is which is important to your sleep.
They can also track your sleep patterns and tell when you’re in REM or light sleep. This will show if your sleep is restful or not.
Mobility and Energy Tests to Evaluate Physical Performance Over the Years
Some signs of aging will show up in how your body feels
and its ability to perform everyday tasks. Your body will start to give off clues as you age that will let you know how well or how poorly your physical performance is.
If you find that you can longer do things as fast or as thoroughly as you once did, that can be a clue.
They can happen gradually and people begin to adjust their lifestyle without even realizing it to compensate for these changes. As you age, fatigue can become an issue.
Most people think that fatigue in association with aging is something that won’t happen until they’re in their seventies or eighties but it can begin as early as your forties.
Sometimes this fatigue is a direct result of fluctuating hormones, but not always.
Because the fear of falling can be a concern, as people age, they’ll also take longer to do certain tasks. This may or may not be because of an actual balance problem.
This carefulness can be a self-limiting mobility issue. It’s important to be careful but continue to do what you can do. The more active you are, the more energy you will have.
One of the first signs of mobility and aging is slowing down with the day to day tasks. For example, for some people, this means taking longer to walk from one point to another.
There are tests that can be performed to check the lower body strength to see if it’s declined such as the sit-to-stand test.
Joint pain can be a sign of
several conditions but it’s widely known as a sign of aging. Inflammation can develop in the joints and the swelling pushes on nerves which can be what causes the pain.
Arthritis is a common cause of joint pain as you age and so are disc diseases and bone spurs. Some of the signs are pain in the fingers, in the knees, shoulders and ankles.
Conducting a frequent head to toe analysis to seek out early signs of aging will help prevent future problems and also give you a better chance of turning back the clock on issues that have already crept up over the years.
