As we age, our metabolism slows down, we begin to lose muscle and the efficiency of our cells within the body progressively declines. Although we can’t stop the ageing process, we can implement strategies that tackle the fluctuating hormone levels and lead to a re-balance of the body and the mind.
My mission is to help you age gracefully and ultimately feel fit and well at 40 and beyond. So to age well, we need to lower our stress levels, move our body everyday and eat the most beneficial types of food to support our ageing body.
Ageing well is most definitely NOT about extreme dieting or running long distances. After all, we want to build a healthy lifestyle, not a stressful one. It is true that exercise slows down the ageing process but it is the type of exercise and not the duration that will ensure success. We all lead busy lives and if I asked you to run 5K every day, eat only Kale and chia seeds, you would click out of this site now!! I’ll let you into a secret…. I HATE running. In fact, my exercise regime involves very little running – I prefer a brisk walk and if I feel like it, I may break out into little jogging intervals.
Sleep is another key factor to ageing well. It’s not necessarily the amount of sleep you try to get each night, it’s deep sleep that is more important. After 40 years old, there is a decline in deep sleep, due to many factors but primarily stress and technology. Sleep restores the body and a lack of it will have a detrimental effect on our physical and emotional health.
