Your daily lifestyle has a direct impact on how you feel — and, ultimately, how you look. Implementing natural anti-aging foundations into your life can promote wellness and help support the aging process along the way.

Through the course of everyday life, your body's cells are exposed to environmental toxins from daily personal care and household products, to pollution and pesticides. These toxins, combined with an unhealthy diet, sedentary lifestyle and chronic stress accumulate and can negatively impact your cellular health. Over time, cells can become unable to keep up with the toxic load, making it more challenging to detoxify and regenerate optimally. Taking proactive steps is key to support the natural aging process at a cellular level — let's take a look at some important considerations.

Biological Age vs. Chronological Age

A healthy body supports optimal cellular function. However, exposure to unhealthy diet and lifestyle factors can damage your cells in ways that mimic the natural cellular effects of aging. This can increase the rate of aging and may cause your body's biological age to look and feel older than your actual, chronological age. So how do you lower your biological age?

Daily Natural Anti-Aging Habits

Incorporating daily natural anti-aging practices can promote healthy cellular integrity and function. This way, you can support healthy aging and even delay or reverse the damage that may have already accelerated signs of aging. It's important to remember that there's no quick solution to aging gracefully. Focus on creating a well-rounded, healthy lifestyle daily and consistently to optimally care for your body over the long term.

Below are some tried and tested actions to consider adding to your day:

  • Practice quiet mindfulness. Just 5-10 minutes, once or twice a day of any form of meditative practice can help calm your mind and provide many other restorative health benefits
  • Prioritize deep, restful sleep. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep each night to optimize overnight regeneration and repair. Rise with the sun and try not to stay up too long after 10pm to support your natural sleep-wake cycle and hormone balance.
  • Nourish your body with whole foods. Consume 7-9+ servings of colorful fruits and vegetables, healthy fats and protein. Incorporating more plant-based foods has shown to support healthy aging.
  • Use supportive nutritional supplements. Even with a healthy, whole food diet, you may not have the optimal levels of essential nutrients to function and detoxify effectively. With a simple at-home lab test you can identify underlying imbalances in nutrients or high toxic exposure and with the help of a certified coach who will explain your results you can begin to support and rebalance your body at a cellular level with targeted diet and lifestyle adjustments right for you
  • Integrate mind and body. Your way of thinking affects your physical body. Learning self-awareness and listening to your body can give you tools to support your own well-being, especially as you age
  • Incorporate movement. Daily movement and weekly exercise has widespread health benefits and can help lower your biological age and aid longevity
  • Eliminate excess toxins. Exposure to toxins is unavoidable. Harmful chemicals used in personal care or household products, non-organic fresh produce or conventionally farmed meat, poultry or fish, and tap water are three major considerations for daily exposure. Try and minimize your toxic load by buying organic produce where possible or stick to the "clean 15" from any supplier, try source personal care and household products with all-natural ingredients to avoid exposure to chemicals and consider doing a functional medicine liver detox, formulated to restore nutrient deficiencies and eliminate accumulated toxicities every 12 weeks
  • Consider when you eat. Experiment with intermittent fasting - a 12-hour overnight fast works well for most and build up to a weekly 24-hour fast or a longer science-backed detoxification strategy every season based on your individual health and goals
  • Targeted beauty bundle.Nutrients including zinc, collagen and vitamin C play a key role in healthy hair, skin and nails to help you look and feel beautiful
  • Emotional Balance. Learn how to let go when things don't go your way of feel out of your control, Journal, practice gratitude and incorporate breath work or other restorative practices like walks in nature or yoga to support stress
  • LOVE. Genuinely listen to your partner, friends and coworkers and appreciate those around you. Consciously engage with your community in a positive light. Maintain a youthful mind: Play, create and laugh a little more! Remember to enjoy the journey. Don't wait until you retire or until you reach a certain milestone — appreciate life in the present moment.

These daily natural anti-aging foundations can assist your core foundation (your cells) at the deepest level in both mind and body. Start to incorporate them into your daily routine to help your body feel better as well as gain a youthful, fresh glow.

Bottom line: Just because your birthday determines your age doesn't mean you have to actually feel that age or look that age.
