Age Perception

Do You Feel Older Than Your Chronological Age?

Studies have recently revealed compelling correlations between our perceived age, our probability of living longer, and the risk of contracting certain illnesses. Our attitude towards our age can hold more sway than we know, even though our chronological age is one of three distinct types of aging.

Sleeping Habits and Aging

As people age, their sleeping habits change and grow more erratic. Sleeping poorly can make one look older than they are and can cause them to have a more pessimistic view of aging. Similarly, a positive outlook on life and the process of aging can significantly impact our longevity, as demonstrated by research in positive psychology. Those who feel younger than their age tend to possess more resilient brains and are more likely to live longer lives. Studies have illustrated that such habits can influence one's longevity and help prevent the onset of several illnesses.

Positive Thinking and Aging

A healthy lifestyle, including the maintenance of a positive mental state, regular physical activity, a balanced weight, a nutritious diet, and restraint from smoking and consuming alcohol in moderation (or absence), can increase life expectancy by up to 12-14 years. Conversely, believing that we are old and harboring associated negative thoughts can lead to health complications caused by this perceived senescence, such as joint stiffness, muscle aches, and irregular sleeping patterns.

Those who feel younger than their age tend to possess more resilient brains and be more likely to live longer lives. The motivation to participate in social gatherings, stay physically active, and consume well-balanced meals are heightened when one perceives themselves to be younger than their chronological age. Studies have illustrated that such habits can influence one's longevity and help prevent the onslaught of several illnesses.

Lifestyle and Aging

Aging is not necessarily linked to sickness and death - instead, it is a natural process that can co-exist alongside other forces in the natural world. To remain healthy, wise and productive, it is important to focus on positive energy and let go of any negative associations.

Diseases and Aging

Believing that we are old and harboring those associated thoughts can lead to health complications caused by this perceived senescence, such as:

- joint stiffness
- muscle aches
- joint swelling
- loss of memory and concentration
- despondency
- exhaustion
- irregular sleeping patterns

Food and Aging

Recent research in the field of nutrition has revealed that nutritional discrepancies and poor dietary habits are the primary factors behind premature skin aging. Eating highly processed foods may lead to premature aging at the cellular level, primarily due to the presence of high quantities of hydrogenated oils in ultra-processed foods, which contain trans fats and can cause long-term inflammation, accelerating the rate at which cells age. Having a nutritious diet and making conscious dietary choices can help reduce the visible signs of aging.

Stem cells and Aging

Stem cells can be regarded as the renewable building blocks of life, and their presence in the body allows for enhanced resilience and regeneration. Therefore, stem cells are an important determining factor of aging. There is a range of regenerative therapies and techniques that target both stem cells and other aspects that promote longer life spans, which is why these approaches are highly sought-after and are helping to inform the future of regenerative medicine. Injecting young stem cells into the human body can encourage the rejuvenation of existing cells, improving the body's resistance to aging and potentially even turning back the clock.
