The process of aging is an inevitable part of being human. Let’s face it – we’re all aging. In fact, you’re older right now than you were than when you started reading this sentence. While this may be a sobering thought, we don’t have to be completely passive in the process of aging.  Because while it’s true that we’re all aging,  I’ll let you in on a secret that can be very empowering and offers an opportunity for you to take control:

1. Sleep more.  Lack of sleep has been linked to obesity, diabetes, cancer, immune deficiency and premature skin aging.  Maximum hormone production happens between 10 pm and 2 am and neuro-cognitive repair work between 2 am and 6 am, so it’s important to be asleep during these hours.  I recommend 10 pm – 6 am as an optimal sleep schedule to aim for.

2. Drink more water. You’ve heard it before, but I’m saying it again! Adequate water intake protects cardiovascular health, facilitates weight loss and promotes a healthy body weight, reduces wrinkles, supports healthy digestive function and aids detoxification.  I recommend, on average, about 3 liters per day for women and 4 liters per day for men…and sip it throughout the day. Don’t guzzle!
