Here are some excellent anti-aging tips for every day:

1. Take antioxidants. Antioxidants are vital to your health. They reduce free radicals that contribute to common diseases in aging individuals. Fruits and vegetables are great sources of antioxidants, but you can also get their benefits by taking a daily high quality supplement. For your skin it is also important that you use an anti aging skin cream with lots of antioxidants like Manuka Honey and grapeseed oil.

2. Exercise. Let's face it: the human body needs exercise to keep healthy. Exercise will not only make you feel better, but you'll also get healthier and more vital at the same time!

3. Stay alert! You can keep your brain sharp by being constantly aware of your surroundings. This sounds rather simple, but how often do we find ourselves daydreaming instead of focusing on the present? When you stay aware, you're fully present in the moment and you're better able to make quick and accurate decisions.

4. Train your brain. Learn new things! To keep your brain active and vital the best tip is to keep learning and reading. Try to learn something new each day, even a small thing will be enough to challenge your brain a bit!

5. Challenge yourself. Talking about challenge, it always helps to use the problem solving parts of your brain. If you don't, these skills will disappear over time, leaving you feeling old and overwhelmed. Try puzzles or number games like Sudoku - they are excellent for keeping your brain active.

6. Avoid stressing about health issues. You see news all over about health conditions that are more likely to affect you as you age. While it's important to get pre-screened for these conditions by your doctor, worrying and stressing about what might come won't change the future - but it sure will reduce your quality of life today! Instead ease your stress by taking action to improve your health with good food, excercise and perhaps a superfood supplement!

7. Get enough sleep. Getting enough sleep at night is very important for maintaining good health and youthful looks. You should be getting 6-8 hours every night - that's the goal. Your body and mind need that time to recover from the day.

8. Avoid smoking and alcohol. Smoking is a guaranteed way of ruining your health, plus it ages your skin and the rest of your body. The dirty reality is that you are shortening your life if you choose to smoke. It's best to quit immediately. When it comes to alcohol, small amounts here and there won't cause much harm, but it shouldn't become a daily habit.

9. Reduce meat and sugar in your diet. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables helps your health (remember the antioxidants from tip Nr. 1?) and keeps your calorie intake at a good level. However, it also helps to eat a reduced amount of meat which can be laden with hormones which can be devastating for your health - not to even mention the saturated animal fats, number one health hazard today. When it comes to sugar, carbohydrates are necessary for your nutrition, but in excess they contribute to the aging process.

10. Concentrate on skin care. When you take care of your skin, you can maintain a healthy, younger look. Establish a daily skin care routine and try natural, effective anti-aging creams with ingredients like Jojoba oil, Manuka Honey and Nano-Lipobelle H EQ10.
