grow old gracefully…

USE YOUR IMAGINATION

SMILE AND LAUGH: laughter exercises the diaphragm, nervous system, and organs, burns calories, and promotes healing.

KEEP LEARNING: “When you stay green, you grow, but when you get ripe, you die.”

DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY: exercise has a strong, anti-aging effect on cells’ DNA.

SIP SOME RED WINE: a compound in red wine (and grapes) called resveratrol influences the genes that play a role in controlling your lifespan.

ENJOY DARK CHOCOLATE: dark chocolate is naturally full of healthy antioxidants, including flavanals. Research suggests that eating small amounts of dark chocolate regularly reduces your risk of heart disease, stroke, and high blood pressure. It improves blood flow to your brain. (The darker the better, for flavor and health.)

HAVE A TEA CEREMONY: studies from Japan found that people who drank 5 or more cups of green tea a day were less likely to die, from any cause, than people who drank less than one cup. The biggest decrease was in heart disease, but green tea also provided protection from cancer. Green tea is loaded with antioxidants that protect your blood vessels and cells.

REMEMBER… AGE IS JUST A NUMBER
