A Holistic Approach to Living Younger and Healthier for Longer

To keep you younger and healthier for longer, you need to address, the mental, the physical, the intellectual, the emotional, and the spiritual aspects of self. In other words, you must have a holistic approach to life and living.

THE MENTAL

In life, everything begins with the mind. Your mind creates the setting for everything that you do in life—whether it is related to your success, health, or happiness. The reason is simple: your mind controls your body, and everything that you do.

Accordingly, to control your body, you need to control your mind first.

To be younger and healthier for longer is all in the mind—your mind.

Do tap into the true potential of your innate mind power.

”When a human mind clearly and continually visualizes an end result, with deep emotion and concentrated intent, then the formatted energy generated is converted into its mass equivalent—i.e. the result desired.” Jim Francis

Do eliminate any negative “voice’ that may hold you back from reaching your full potentials in life.

Do use positive affirmations with the state-of-the-art subliminal technology to create your desired reality instrumental in controlling your subconscious mind. Life is an ongoing process of learning. Learn how to learn to have an ultimate edge in life.

Do use meditation to de-stress your mind. Stress has a negative impact on your mind.

Don’t clutter your life with material things. Clear your physical clutters to clear your mind.

Don’t procrastinate. Break the shackles of procrastination that holds you back from your success in life. Time is of essence. Break that habit to free your mind of any stress.

THE PHYSICAL

At the physical level, your body is affected by your eating habits and your lifestyle, which may lead to a toxic body.

A healthier body complements a healthier mind.

Don’t smoke. If you are a smoker, quit the habit today.

Don’t drink excessively. If you have an addiction problem, seek help and overcome it naturally.

Don’t worship the sun. The free radicals damage your skin permanently, leading to premature aging.

Do eat right by eating super foods, not their processed counterparts.

Do go organic whenever and wherever possible. Better still, start your own organic garden and grow your own produce.

Do eat a raw diet occasionally to get all the enzymes for better digestion.

Do eat less, not more. Do avoid all fad diets: they damage your metabolism, and do not help you lose weight permanently.

Do detox your body every now and then for internal cleansing.

Do control your blood pressure, your cholesterol levels, and body weight naturally without drugs. All drugs, whether prescribed or obtained over the counter, are toxic; avoid them as much as possible.

Do build up and strengthen your muscles not only to maintain your body image, but also to help you lose weight while you sleep.

Do learn the grooming secrets to look younger for longer.

THE INTELLECTUAL

Do become knowledgeable about anything and everything to do with your health and wellness.

Do learn to think, and, more importantly, to make good decisions to change where change is necessary. According to Albert Einstein, insanity or stupidity is “doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different result.” Don’t keep on doing all the wrong things and yet expect the right results.

Don’t expect miracles in life. Don’t expect to get something for nothing. To be younger and healthier for longer comes with a price: it requires knowledge and commitment.

EMOTIONAL

At the emotional level, disappointment, frustration, and lack of self-confidence may become your everyday stressor, leading to premature aging and failing mental health.

Remember, the fullness of who you are will not become evident, if you are forever preoccupied with negative thoughts and thinking.

Do learn to deal with your feelings in a healthy and positive way.

Do rethink your thinking and your thoughts.

THE SPIRITUAL

In life, there are times when the will is strong but the flesh is weak. In such circumstances, the mind has to be strengthened by the spirit. Indeed, in life, you need a crutch to help you through difficult times and misfortunes, which are as inevitable as death.

Without the spirit, you will be plodding through life, forever focusing on “fixing” your problems, without being able to freely truly enjoy life—which holds the key to being younger and healthier for longer.

With the recognition of the definitive link between stress and disease, there has been more focus on the health of the human spirit and soul. In fact, for millennia, sages have been pointing out that nurturing the human spirit holds the key to the overall wellness of an individual. “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts” attests to the importance of the inner resources of the human soul in overcoming roadblocks along the journey of life and living. These inner resources include compassion, honesty, forgiveness, humor, love, and patience, among others. Each individual is blessed with these inner resources, and has the potential to be spiritually healthy—provided that individual would utilize his or her inner resources to come through each crisis and catastrophe to become the victor, and not the loser or the victim.

Do develop your inner resources with growth and vision.

Do seek God to help you change for the better. “Commit your work to the Lord, and then your plans will succeed.” (Proverb 16:3)

Remember, God will never fail you or leave you struggling alone in your commitment to remaining younger and healthier for longer. “For God has said, ‘I will never fail you. I will never forsake you.’” (Hebrews 13:5)

Be younger and healthier for longer!
