Many people in today’s world are discovering that there is an accumulated toll on our bodies from poor eating habits, stationary workstations, and environmental toxins. The effects are not pretty. People are breaking down at earlier and earlier ages, and we hear more and more frequently, “I fell apart at 30.” The investment you make now in your health and fitness will pay incredible dividends for years to come, and the great news is that it is never too late to start. You are not too old—you can turn this around. In this article, our anti-aging clinic in Baton Rouge would like to explore some of the investments you can make in yourself now to reap long-term dividends.
Invest Now, Reap Later
Everyone falls somewhere along the continuum of fitness and well-being, but not everyone takes a step back to evaluate where they fall along this continuum. Picture a set of scales. One side of the scales is labeled “health burdens,” and the things that pile up on this side are things like health problems, fatigue, being overweight, and physical ailments. The other side of the scales is labeled “health blessings,” and on this side of the scales, you find things like a positive mental attitude, toned muscles, mental toughness, and well-being.
You never want to let yourself get to the state where the burdens outweigh the blessings. In other words, you never want to get to the point where the obstacles to fitness and well-being overwhelm even your toughest and most optimistic mental attitude. If the scales do tip in this direction, the thing to do immediately is invest in the “blessings” side of the scale. Hopefully, though, you’ve been doing this all along, and this will give you a huge boost in helping to avoid ever letting the scales tip to the wrong side.
Investments to Make Now
Eating a healthy diet can make a massive difference in ensuring that your body has the proper building blocks to construct all the needed machinery at the cellular level. Your cells are constantly trying to build crucial parts like DNA, proteins, enzymes, and hormones. Not getting the right building blocks in your diet can result in deficiencies that can range in importance from mildly annoying to downright dangerous.
Your career years are a crucial stage where if you invest in adequate exercise now, you’ll reap huge benefits in your retirement. However, the older you get, and the busier you get, the less it will seem that fitness and exercise fits into your schedule. Don’t fall for the line that you don’t have time for this. Fix your eyes firmly on the quality of life you want to have when you’re older, and be relentless in your pursuit of fitness and strength. You’ll never stop thanking yourself. However, what if you’re already retired? It’s still not too late to get the fit, toned body you’ve been dreaming of. Get a trainer to push you and you’ll be amazed at how much you can accomplish in a short time.
3. Hormone Balance
As your body ages, its production of hormones gradually declines from the peak levels you had in your prime. You can now compensate for this gradual reduction by boosting your hormones back up to prime levels with bioidentical hormone therapy. This is a treatment that Rejuvime Medical offers, and it circulates hormones into your bloodstream that are chemically identical to the ones that your body creates. Keeping your hormones in the right proportion to each other will have amazing effects on your overall health and well-being. Two key hormones to keep in balance are testosterone and estrogen, but it’s also important to balance all hormones, including thyroid hormones, adrenal hormones, and other regulatory hormones such as insulin.
4. Your Personal Brand
Every day, the little choices you make send a statement to other people about you. If you consistently arrive on time, dress professionally, and deliver your commitments ahead of deadline, you are making a statement about who you are and what people are likely to begin to predict you’ll be like in the future. If you are sloppy, easily offended, or always late, you’ll send an opposite message about yourself. Investing in your own good name can make a huge difference in the long run. It can give you opportunities you wouldn’t have had, make you the person that people turn to, or get you off the hook in a touchy situation since people are already convinced that you’re trustworthy.
There are few areas where you’ll be so grateful that you made unselfish deposits as the quality and durability of your relationships. When you’re older, especially in your twilight years, the quality of the relationships you’ve built over a lifetime can make the difference between loneliness and solitude and spectacular, committed care by loyal family members and friends.
