I really am not a fan of the phrase "Aging Gracefully." We are all aging from the moment we slide out the birth canal. However, instead of aging gracefully, I choose to "Live Joyfully" ...out loud and with contentment.
For anyone to generate explosive power in their movements, whether it's in sports or through general physical conditioning, you must have strength. Where does strength come from? Strength stems from the "core," which essentially starts from the feet all the way up to the head.
A wave of ethical discussions and admonitions recently appeared after Chinese scientists reported successfully editing an embryo's DNA.
I always knew that after I had finished up a good romp in the hay with my husband, I glowed. The increased blood flow, the exertion, the release of endorphins. But what I didn't know was that having sex was helping me stave off the effects of aging.
If an experiment like this tells us anything, it's that your mind can play an incredibly powerful role in the health of your body, and there are simple things you can do to both look, feel, and perform like you're younger.
By now, we know what a 50-year-old body looks like. We live in one every single day. Even those of us who purchase the latest anti-aging creams and capsules know they won't make us look younger. Not really. So what's the alternative? Here are seven real anti-aging tricks.
In order to help preserve your balance and stability for when you age, consider training it at least three times a week. While many yoga classes have balance postures in them, sometimes doing these same postures stand alone, can have a positive impact on your balance too.
I am apparently guilty of one of the last social offenses against humanity: I am aging while female. I plead guilty. I am 65 and a few months ago had that day that everyone eventually has -- the one when you look in the mirror and see a stranger, a stranger who looks much older than you feel.
I write about aging, work in an office where I am the oldest woman, and have been married to the same man for what feels like centuries. I understand that at a certain point in life, we morph into mentors to those who are younger. That said, here are five questions I really can't answer.
There seems to be a pervasive attitude in my Gen X group that technology is destroying our youth. We worry they'll be unable to succeed at face-to-face communication and connection. But I'm also noticing an equally disturbing trend among midlifers.
The anti-aging battle is never ending, so let's get to it. Here are some exfoliators, serums and other products that can help.
Have you given up on your New Year's resolutions yet? You will not be alone. Should you be one of the many who decided to get fit this year and are already making excuses as to why you cannot go to the gym, I have the perfect solution-- belly dancing.
Perhaps the most important lesson we can learn from Dr. Bob is to make our own health a priority in our lives. Dr. Bob wanted answers to health and anti-aging questions that weren't available when he began his career, so he took action to find the solutions himself.
You won't find my face on the other end of any Botox needles. I want to look as young as possible now that I am no longer young. But I also find it useful to be able to register anger with a facial expression, especially because my 10-year-old black lab is somewhat deaf.
There's more happening here, and it comes down to the fact that Paltrow's a woman. How often do we see male celebrities, or men in general, tasked for the stuff-- whether vain or frivolous or "too indulgent"-- they spend their money on?
This year has zoomed by, and it's tough to sit with the fact that 2015 feels and sounds like it's way in the future, rather than moments away. Time, which becomes such a precious commodity with each passing year, has a way of surprising me with its swiftness. Wasn't it just July? Didn't I just turn 50?
