A healthy diet, regular exercise, smart lifestyle choices, strong social connections and good sleep can help slow down the signs of aging. We teamed up with South African blogger, Fiona Rossiter, to explore practical ways to boost your chances of healthy aging, and to make the most of 2020.
In the latest blog post on her Inspired Living blog, Five tips to slow the signs of aging, Fiona shares some real-life practical tips to incorporate this year. While it’s impossible to stop the clock or turn back time, it is possible to slow it down.
A lack of sleep increases the signs of aging
Research shows a link between a lack of sleep and slowing metabolism. However, the National Sleep Foundation reveals that although women aged between 30 and 60 should get an average of seven to nine hours of sleep each night, most women are getting less than seven.
Good sleep reduces stress, improves memory, lowers blood pressure, increases immunity and helps put you in a better mood. But did you know a good night’s sleep can also give you better skin? After all, it’s not called “beauty sleep” for nothing. Just think about it: If you don’t get enough sleep, you start seeing bags under your swollen eyes, paler skin and more wrinkles and fine lines. Your skin wants sleep! Yes, it’s wise to invest in good quality skin care products, but if you’re not making sleep a priority, you’re doing yourself a disservice.
A good quality mattress will help slow down the signs of mattress
A good quality mattress means good quality sleep! Considering you spend approximately one third of your life in bed, a quality mattress and sprung foundation is a smart investment in your health.
