One feature of our time is the cult of youth and health, besides dream of eternal youth is not only a narrow layer of the alchemists, magicians and "the powerful", but more and more the general population. Even so there was a trend in modern medicine - anti-aging, science does not get old. And, of course, we are most interested in the development of this trend of women, because each of us tends to be young, attractive, active as long as possible.
As a rule, the fight against the signs of aging, we begin to be interested in sometime after 40, when these signs are already on your face (and on the face), although it would be more appropriate to implement the principles of anti-aging in your life from a young age. These principles are simple: do not get sick, grow old, do not hurry "to bury myself." Let us examine them in detail.
Do not be sick
The principle of "not being sick" implies rejection of bad habits and all that can harm our health. Of course, not everything in this regard depends on us, there is a genetic predisposition, and environmental pollution, we do not always able to change the location to a more appropriate and more, but, nevertheless, still in their sores, especially those which is considered to be "age", there is a large proportion of our fault. Smoking, alcohol abuse, poor nutrition - all these factors that do not add our health and provoke the development of many diseases, steal youth and years of life.
Do not get old
Youth body - this movement. That physical activity prevents muscle atrophy, and in fact we know that already from 30 years for women begins the loss of muscle mass, and only exercise can slow down the process. Also, the motion is necessary and our joints, or 40 years, we can closely acquainted with arthrosis, arthritis, osteochondrosis, and other problems of the musculoskeletal system.
Sharp mind and good memory - also a sign of youth.

Of course, from the stresses it is not perfect, but because often we show discontent, anger over trifles, to dwell on the circumstances that can not change. In our life many reasons to be nervous, angry, swear. We spend our mental and physical strength to the minor troubles are not worth it ... and get a result - depression, nervous tic, a heart attack or hypertensive crisis. Yes, the world is not perfect, but we have no others, the only way - to accept and love him for who he is.
