Do you want to feel younger and reverse aging in your body? I’m sure the answer is
a yes, yes?
There a plenty of things we can do to feel younger and not grow “old” before our
time. There’s usually nothing new under the sun in books, articles, etc. until I
read about this method – it’s about telomeres.
What’s a telomere?
Telomeres (tell-o-meers) is a portion of the DNA strand that often shortens and
frays with age. Whatever can “lengthen” them helps our bodies and brains stay
I saw an article in Sunday’s paper, January 27th Parade issue, a Stay Healthy
Quiz and one of the quiz items was about telomeres. It read:
True or false:
To feel younger, just open your window blinds.
Looking out a window onto natural, outdoorsy scenes may reduce blood pressure
and other markers of stress, several new studies show. More remarkably, in a
2009 experiment reported in the Lancet , older people in Hong Kong who lived near
open, green spaces had longer telomeres, a portion of the DNA strand that often
shortens and frays with age. In effect, they had younger cells.
NATURE AS HEALER ONE MORE TIME
Seems like a pretty easy thing to do, open the drapes and look outdoors at nature!
Hey, why not double your opportunity to be younger, GET OUT THERE IN NATURE!!
. . . and walk and hike and play and see it while in it!
Here’s a book that might be of interest all about telomeres:
