As much as you may want it, you simply can’t turn back the hands of time. This can be frustrating as the signs of aging begin to set in.
The good news is that by adding a few anti-aging tweaks and habits to your routine it’s quite possible to look younger, healthier and more vibrant than ever before. And, no, you don’t need surgeries, injections or expensive lotions or potions to look years younger than you do today!
Anti-Aging Habit #1: Slow Down & Breathe
Breathing is the first primal need because we can only live approximately 5 minutes without oxygen. Control your breathing and you can control your life. You can slow life down by simply slowing the rate at which you breathe.
Try this grounding and breathing technique: Perform 2 minutes of diaphragmatic breathing while standing and connecting to ground. Stand with feet shoulder width apart, lengthened spine with right hand on belly and left hand on chest. Imagine all 5 toes, ball of foot, outer foot, arch and heel have roots connected to ground with sandbags on top of feet. Feel strength and stability. Next imagine there is a steel band going around the waist under the belly button with a connection from band to the earth in the front and back anchoring to the ground.
Breathe in and out of nose for approximately 15 seconds, each breath 5 second inhale (belly falls and rib cage expands as much as possible) then 5 second hold, and 5 second exhale. Close mouth. Breathe into entire body. Work on 360 degree expansion of the torso, especially the back.
While breathing, think about three things you are grateful for and then what three things you are going to do today or tomorrow to achieve your goals.
Work on breathing everywhere and anywhere: before bed, upon waking, red lights, during exercise, before eating given it is our number one need.
Anti-Aging Habit #2: Drink Your Water
Hydration is the second primal need because we can only live approximately 7 days without water.
Start your day with 16 oz. of water (add lemon juice and raw apple cider vinegar in water if you like). Drink 8-16 oz. of water before and one hour after each meal. Your goal for the day is to accumulate ½ your body weight in oz. of quality water. Drink another 4 oz. with each minute exercise session. Use filtered water for drinking and showering. Consider using Aquasauna Filters. Avoid keeping your water in plastic containers.
Anti-Aging Habit #3: Get 7-9 hours of Quality Sleep Each Night
Sleep is the third primal need because our body fails in less than 21 days without it.
Wind down in the evenings around 9:00 pm and do your best to be asleep no later than 10:00 pm. My goal for you is to sleep at least 7 hours per night. Your body fat will reduce and your overall health will improve massively with good, consistent, daily sleep. This will most likely be your most difficult assignment, but it’s a critical one.
Control your morning by preparing at night as you wind down for the evening. Do your best to avoid TV, cell phones and computers at least one hour before bed to optimize melatonin levels and reduce cortisol, so that you can sleep better.
Anti-Aging Habit #4: Fuel Your Body With Healthy Food
Food is the fourth primal need because we can only live 21 days without it.
Above all commit to a nutrition model and give it at least 4 weeks before changing the model. Assess if the model works by measuring body fat weekly and becoming aware of body’s clues – be mindful, pay attention. See my Daily Nutrition Record for a handy tool to use. Focus on Food Quality: Good Fats, Proteins and Veggies. Plan & prepare and Avoid overcooking foods! Limit grains & sugar and pasteurized dairy products. Slow down and chew. Eat every 4-5 hours and never go hungry. Avoid eating starchy carbs past 7:00 pm. Consider having one “Anything Goes Day” (AGD) per week.

Anti-Aging Habit #5: Exercise Daily
Exercise is the seventh primal need. It improves your circulation, which has a number of age reducing payoffs. Healthy circulation helps your skin to look its best and even reduces puffiness and bags under your eyes. Exercise also increases muscle tone which improves your metabolism and helps you burn fat, look slimmer and younger.
