My new book Second Spring: Hundreds of Natural Secrets for Women to Revitalize and Regenerate at Any Age has just come out. It is packed with wonderful tips especially for women, making it a perfect gift for Mother’s Day. In the meantime, take these tips.
1. Exercise Every Day
As women age, they need more than ever to protect their bones and joints. Consider the benefits of a daily walk, at least twenty minutes every day. This will not only help your mother stay fit and build her bones, but it is also a wonderful way to reflect and clear the mind. Swimming is a great form of cardiovascular exercise, and although it is not considered a weight bearing activity, can also help fight osteoporosis. Better still, water acts as the perfect cushion for joints, great for those suffering from worn hips and knees. Also, gentle energy-boosting exercises like tai chi and yoga that work with the mind-body connection are vital for a flourishing anti-aging exercise program.
2. Tea Time: A Treat for Your Brain
In addition to being a delicious, low-calorie beverage, tea is the beverage most commonly enjoyed by centenarians around the world. Tea possesses free-radical inhibiting properties more potent than even vitamin E and also helps prevent and treat hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis). The polyphenols in tea, especially the catechins, are powerful antioxidants that help protect against cancer and diabetes. Green tea prevents an enzyme found in Alzheimer’s disease and its rich sources of polyphenols and antioxidants help prevent premature brain aging. Drink two cups a day to get the brain benefits.
