When movie stars and famous people are stressed out, they head for expensive spas to get pampered, nourished and refreshed. If your budget is more inclined towards a run in the park and a smoothie as a way to refresh, then you have to take charge of your own wellness. And really, that’s the best approach anyway!

Don’t wait until your body is signaling for help with aches, pains, wrinkles or stress. Real anti-aging is proactive and starts well before the first signs of aging appear. Most of what you need to look and feel great at any age is in the health food store – or your own kitchen!

Green Tea is calming and delicious, but it also has so many curative properties that it’s practically a health care center in a tiny tea bag. Green tea has been shown in some studies to reduce the risk of breast cancer, colon cancer and gastrointestinal cancer.

It’s also calming if you have Crohn’s disease or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. Green tea is also shown to be effective in protecting against heart disease and improving mental alertness. Drink one or two cups of green tea daily for maximum benefits.

Ginger is an old fashioned remedy for motion sickness that’s usually taken in a capsule form. Recent studies show that ginger or ginger extract can help calm irritable bowel syndrome, morning sickness, nausea and migraine headaches.

Cranberry juice is another home remedy for urinary tract infections. Drinking cranberry juice regularly helps keep away painful infections and protects against Type II Diabetes.

Tumeric is a seasoning found among the spices. Not only is this flavorful for cooking but it’s also shown to have a positive effect on Rheumatiod Arthritis, bursitis, osteoarthritis and lower back pain.

Olive Oil is useful in cooking and salad dressings, but the little olive is more powerful than you know. Olive oil or olive extract combats fungus and yeast infections, bacterial infections and the pesky bugs that bring on colds.

These are easy to incorporate into your menu plans for maximum effect. It can be as simple as adding more tumeric in your cooking or choosing to relax with a cup of Green Tea instead of a soda. Get some books at the health food store or local library and see if you can find five more natural elements to add to your anti-aging natural arsenal today!

Mental Attitude

Perhaps the most important thing you can do for yourself to increase longevity and live a happier, healthier life is to learn how to develop and keep a positive mental attitude.

The process of developing an attitude that will help you later in life should be nurtured during the younger years. How you learn skills when you’re young to help cope with adversities and strategies through life will become all important when you reach a time that requires those skills.

We now know how important it is to our mental health to figure out a mission for our lives. Then, as you go through the stages and hurdles of life, you can reassess that mission and reconfigure it for where you currently are on life’s path.

Living a full, rich life should be a goal that you not only strive for, but work toward by doing everything possible to make sure you’re healthy, both in body and mind to withstand the ravages of time.

The Most Important Tools to Keep a Positive Attitude

Scientific research indicates that “retirement” as our ancestors viewed it really isn’t a good thing for us to keep a positive mental attitude about life. Below are some helpful tools for you to live by if living a full, rich life is of concern to you.

• Keep Busy – A rocking chair isn’t the way to achieve “Fountain of Youth” effects during the aging process. We now know that keeping active, both in body and mind is the best way to live a long and productive life.

• Write Your Own Road Map – Baby boomers entering their 60s never expected to age, so they’re now looking for ways to keep their youth – but most are trying to retain their youth with cosmetic surgery, pills or surrounding themselves with youthful “things” such as a bright red sports car.

Writing your own road map for the rest of your life is empowering and can also help to build your mental aptitude just as you would build your muscles through exercise.

• Cultivate Healthy Relationships – The relationships you cultivate with family and friends can make the difference in how you view the rest of your life. Taking trips and learning new things are all better done with someone you care about than alone.

Take the necessary steps to develop a positive mental attitude that will help you through the aging process gently and optimistically.
