The Ageless Mindset
When you think of aging, what words come to mind? Rigid, fixed, slow, old, grey? What comes to mind when you think of youth? Energized, curious, quick, vibrant? Aging to some degree is a state of mind, but there is so much that we have in our control to ensure that our bodies' age slowly and gracefully. This course is going to cover a variety of diet and lifestyle choice that will help you completely transform your experience of "aging," if you are able and willing to take action and try new things.
I’m sure you have at some point in your life heard the common idiom: “you are what you eat.” If you truly take that statement to heart you realize that with every meal you have the opportunity to reinvent yourself; the nourishment you choose can either fuel your body or leave you feeling and looking like you’re running on empty. In this first module we are going to focus on diet. What happens over time is our body takes on the expression of the foods we eat. When considering optimal health, beauty, and aging we have to think about food for the mind, body, and spirit that can encourage youthfulness.
We all know people who are "young at heart," because of their exceptional attitude. I'm sure we all want the attitude and also the benefits of skin and a body that is youthful as well. We all want to feel beautiful or appreciated for the uniqueness that we are but beauty is much deeper than a pretty face. True beauty could be considered the fullest most energetic expression of one’s soul. And that soul is ageless. Below are some simple ways you can step into your true beauty and fill yourself up with spiritual and physical nourishment. We will elaborate on all of these points in the coming modules. -XoXo Raw Girl
Eat Whole, Unprocessed Foods. If you are what you eat do you want to look like a stale bag of salt encrusted potato chips? Or would you prefer to radiate the energy from a fresh bowl of organic leafy greens? Sounds like an easy choice, but sometimes our taste buds get the better of us. Nowadays it is more important than ever to know that what you are eating is actually food, because the majority of packaged and to-go meals out there are full of chemicals, preservatives, harmful additives, or even hormones. Consuming these toxins does not only diminish your outward appearance, it also has a direct effect on your emotional stability and joie de vivre. As we age, each bite we take becomes all the more important to shaping our future of vibrant health, or adding to the toxins in our bodies' that have built up over time and will lead to disease.
Get Your Beauty Vitamins In. Slowing the aging process is definitely tied to giving your body great nutrition. Food is one of the most powerful tools we have at our disposal to alter our physical body, increase our magnetism, and boost our overall sexy factor. As David Wolfe so eloquently sums up in his book “Eating for Beauty,” there are a number of nutrients that are essential for maintaining and cultivating an attractive appearance including vitamin A, C, E, silicon, sulfur, and zinc. In addition to these you’ll want to make sure you get enough magnesium, manganese, iron, and B vitamins which are all essential for the proper functioning of metabolic pathways that convert our food into energy. I know your are exceptionally busy and sometimes you really don't have time to ensure each meal is completely well rounded. Thankfully there are a few things you can do to bring that nutrient gap. The first is to take your vitamins! Or ensure that you are consuming at least one or two superfoods daily.
Embrace Silence. Meditation or mindfulness, in whatever form you choose to practice, is the ultimate food for the soul. Not only is meditation a stress reliever, it can actually boost your mental performance. Research conducted at the University of California, Santa Barbara found that college students trained in mindfulness performed better on verbal reasoning sections on the GRE and also had improvements in retention of material. The outcome of the study suggests that mindfulness improves overall cognitive function. In addition meditation helps to balance out emotions and moodiness, and has been shown in numerous studies to reduce the risk of depression.
Move Your Body. Not only is yoga is healing modality that can help release bodily toxins, improve flexibility, boost your immune system, and improve blood circulation, it is another incredible way to give your soul the food it needs. On your mat as your learn to focus, breathe, and move through challenges without letting your mental chatter get in your way, you slowly but surely free yourself up to be the fiercest most beautiful version of you, outside in the real world.
Pursue Your Purpose. When someone contracts a serious illness or chronic disease, they expect their doctor to prescribe medication, and if their lucky some lifestyle changes. Often times in addition to those recommendations, the best prescription is to simply find what you love and do it daily. A huge part of aging is taking on the mentality that our passions must die as we "grown up." This in itself is death to a sacred part of ourselves that wants to play. And play is something people do who are youthful! It is far too common to find ourselves living a life that is not our own and neglecting our true passions and calling. To be the best, healthiest ageless version of you, find what it is that makes your heart sing and do it NOW. Not next week, ten years from now, when you have more money etc. When you love what you do and are walking in your purpose you will be happy, and a good dose of happy is an essential ingredient for optimal health.
