Weight-lifting counters a slowing metabolism and burns extra calories per day. Cardio will keep your heart healthy and give you more energy. Yoga will improve posture and counter the effects of swayed backs by way of core strengthening.
Exercise also provides men and women with more radiant skin, which will allow you to appear less tired and run-down. Follow a regimen that combines cardio with weight-training and yoga sessions.
For example, you can sculpt for 20 minutes, do cardio for 30 minutes and do yoga for 10 minutes -- or vary your workout by day. Invest in a few sessions with a personal trainer at your local gym to obtain a workout that will fit your needs and keep you working out safely.
Foods that are rich in antioxidants combat the effects of aging and help to prevent disease. Antioxidant-rich foods include fruits and vegetables -- like onions, broccoli, apples, red grapes, and berries -- as well as moderate amounts of dark chocolate, red wine and green tea.
Healthy fats, especially omega-3s, renew skin cells to keep them looking young and moist. Walnuts and salmon are rich in omega-3 fats, as are eggs, cereal, yogurt, and cheeses and milk that are fortified with DHA -- a type of omega-3.
Cut out greasy, fatty foods, which can lead to health problems and trigger obesity, and stop excessive drinking and smoking -- both have been proven to increase the risks of cancer and disease, and they intensify the effects of aging.
