Winning The Biological Aging Game: How To Stay Forever Young

When you hear people talking about anti-aging, it’s easy to assume that they’re talking about preserving youthful, wrinkle-free skin. While it’s excellent to feel confident about your complexion, it’s not just your skin that shows the signs of aging. Your health should be a priority, no matter whether you’re 25 or 75. The steps you take now can help you stay young, even when the years are ticking by, and the number of candles on the cake is increasing. You may know exactly how old you are to the day, but do you know your biological age? If you’re keen to stay forever young, here are some of the best ways you can protect your health and ensure you look and feel youthful for as long as possible.

What is your biological age?
Have you ever noticed that two people who are the same age could look completely different? Aging isn’t just about physical appearance. It’s also closely related to your health. If you were to undergo tests, a doctor would be able to give you a rough idea of your biological age, and this may be very different to your chronological age and to the biological age of other people who were born on the same day as you. The biological age is often an accurate indicator of how well the body is functioning. In most cases, lifestyle factors play an instrumental role in determining your biological age. The good news is that if your biological age is higher than your chronological age, there are ways you can turn back the clock and boost your health. It’s never too early to do this, so even if you’re a sprightly 20-something, there’s no harm in taking this advice on board.

Letting My Feet Take Me Somewhere Else


We need a lifetime to explore this wonderful world. There will always be a hidden desire in each one of us to break free from our usual everyday routine. At some point, somehow, we wish to be a different person living in a different place. Perhaps, routine weakens us and it makes us feel tired. Along the way, as we are all too busy living our lives, waking up and do things the same way as yesterday, we are slowly losing our souls. Hence, the birth of the term “soul-searching”.

I am not an adventurous person. But I love change. I grew up in a place where I can see the sea seemingly connecting its ends to the bed of clouds with the shadows of mountains parallel to their meeting point. I love how laid back my life here is. Life is simple and manageable.

What are meal kit deliveries and why should you try them?

Spending a few hours every weekend at the supermarket, shopping for ingredients and food for the rest of the week has been a common activity for decades. It wasn’t until the recent few years that people have become to get comfortable with online shopping, specifically online grocery shopping. There have been companies such as Instacart for example, where you can select items from a grocery/supermarket store that you typically shop at, online, and then someone will go, pick up those items for you and deliver them right to your door.

Amazon didn’t turn a blind eye to the idea that there is a growing trend of people doing their grocery shopping online. Between 2013-2014, Amazon began introducing “AmazonFresh” to major cities and has been aggressively growing their reach since then. Earlier this year, during the summer, Amazon made the announcement that they are purchasing WholeFoods for $13.7 billion dollars!  It’s been a few months since the purchase has been announced, but items that you would typically find in WholeFoods have begun to appear within AmazonFresh – and at a remarkable discount!

A history of jewellery

Jewellery is believed to have first come to prominence during prehistoric times. Today it is seen as a way to enhance our sense of style, but long ago it was worn as a way to project a sense of status or rank.

The jewelry worn in medieval Europe symbolized a status-conscious society. Royalty wore gold and precious gems, while lower ranks in society wore base metals such as copper. The size and color determined the value of the items until the late 14th century.

Renaissance jewelry reflected the age’s passion for splendor. It was thought that particular types of stone could protect against specific ailments or threats, including a toothache.

Secrets to Healthy Bones That Will Keep You Stronger for Longer

Bones play many different roles in our body. They help to keep our bodies up, they project vital organs in our bodies, and they help our muscles. It goes without saying that our bones are some of the most important parts of our body, but you’d be surprised at how many people neglect their bones and naturally let them weaken over time. Bone health is important because they’re continuously stressed and changing. During our younger years, old bone is replaced by new bone which is why we can quickly recover from injuries. However, once we enter the early stages of adulthood, we start to lose more bone mass than we produce it. This ultimately causes our bodies to weaken and, in some cases, we shrink as a result.

Early bone health is important because the better your bones are, the more slowly they will break down. If your bone health is terrible as you enter your adult years, then they’ll break down faster, and you will suffer your senior years with weakened bones. It’s a good idea to take your bone health seriously while you still can, and here are a couple of secrets that will help you do just that.
