Three to Five Times a Week
Exercise cannot be something picked up and put down like an 800 page book. To complete the analogy, people have to read the whole thing to get anything out of it. That is why training to work-out three to five times a week is important. Building the body up over time helps it maintain a healthy shape both inside and out.
To be fit does not require a gym membership. Membership fees can be better spent on buying new clothes because the old ones do not fit anymore or on organic produce and vegetables.
Here are some exercises that can be done around the home without having to pay a monthly fee:
● Swimming (granted this only works if there is a pool at the house or apartment complex)
● Jumping Rope
● Weight Lifting
Think of more and write them down. Keeping a journal of when and what type of workouts are done will help track calorie count and fat cells burned. It also helps people stay motivated when they see things written down. Find a workout buddy to help.
Necessity of Skin Care
Perhaps the biggest outside feature people notice most is a person’s skin. Signs of aging are most evident on a person’s face. Anti aging creams help with wrinkles and fine lines, as can sleeping well. It is important to take care of skin all over the body. This means using sunscreen when out in the sun and moisturizer once returned indoors.
Washing the face daily should be part of the skin care regimen. Treating any blemishes or scars with Vitamin E is another good thing to do as it will diminish the signs of aging. The skin protects the body from harmful agents such as dirt and wind, so it needs a little tender love and care in return.
Being himself or herself is the most important thing a person can do. That means living by their own rules and not accepting getting older as a means to look weak and worn out. People can maintain their youthful glows and their thirst for life just by running and washing their faces. It really is that simple. Age just complicates things sometimes because all people see is the number. Shock them with a well-toned body and beautiful face. Show them age is only a number and should not be the determining factor of what it is to be old.
