After visiting my 95 year old Nanny in Australia this week, I’m so inspired and excited to continue on from last week’s newsletter on longevity!
So here are some more secrets on living longer..

  • Meditate – There are soooo many benefits of doing this but when it comes to longevity meditation reduces stress, which is one of the major causes of ageing. By taking up yoga and other meditative techniques you can really enhance your quality of life. I really feel the benefits of this when I do it consistently!
  • Eat smaller portions – They say cutting your calories by 10% may extend your life – so long as you’re not depriving yourself of essential nutrients.
  • Behave younger – This doesn’t mean dressing like a teen again but according to science, people who behave as if they were younger live longer and age less quickly! Maybe just try to do a few more things you liked doing when you were young 🙂
  • Wear Copper – Lots of people, especially those who suffer from arthritis, wear copper bracelets so the mineral can be absorbed into the skin. Copper is an incredible supplement for reducing age-related disintegration of body tissues and its also nonallergenic!
  • Pine bark might help – Pine bark extract (pycnogenol) and grape seed extract are rich in antioxidants that help the bod counteract the signs of ageing.
    Don’t forget to rest and recover! – Rest is just as important as exercise when it comes to helping you bod stay healthy for longer. Regular exercise with daily relaxation and at least one rest day a week could add years to your life!

So, have a fun and active, yet restful and rejuvenating week!
