Have you ever wondered what an anti-ageing naturopath does to stay young, healthy and happy? Healthy ageing is not just important for my clinic – it’s something I aspire to as well. That’s why I’ve combined the best research and information out there to create my own anti-ageing routine.
If you want to know the habits that I prioritise to combat ageing, you’ve come to the right place.
A naturopath’s top tips for looking and feeling youthful
8 Simple Anti-Ageing Tips From A Naturopath
This is #1 for a reason – taking a personalised approach to nutrition transformed my health. Our bodies are all unique, and as a result, some people can have a negative reaction to foods that we think of as healthy. By understanding the foods and drinks that your body responds to, you can tackle issues like inflammation at the root.
This tailored approach is why my Glow Protocol clients go through incredible transformations as well – inside and out! Learn more about The Glow Protocol here.
Staying active is one of the best ways to protect yourself against ageing. Moving your body helps to maintain muscle mass, which is protective against chronic disease, falls and frailty in later years. It also helps to support your cognitive function as well!
Find a way to move your body – ideally on a daily basis – that you enjoy. This could be something gentle like walking or yoga, or it could be more intense exercise. You may even want to opt for something a bit different like pole-dancing or rock-climbing!
I often have clients come to me who aren’t sleeping, either because they can’t or because it’s last on their to-do list. But getting a good sleep actually helps you to function better physically and mentally.
I make sure that I get enough sleep AND that it is quality sleep. There’s not much point in getting 8 hours every night if you’re tossing and turning the whole night! That’s why I have habits that support sleep (including one I mention below)
Not sure why you can’t sleep? Make sure you give this a read.
Fun is different for everyone – you might have a hobby you love, enjoy travelling, or get a kick from trying new things.
For me, one of the most important ways to have fun is by playing with my pups. This is a winner for everyone – I get to have fun, the furkids are happy, and we all fill up our social needs as well!
At 6pm, my screen goes off. After that, there are no more emails, social media, or anything like that until the next day.
This has been a game-changer habit for me as it helps to reduce stress, relax my mind and improve my sleep. And as we know, stress & sleep are two essential pillars of anti-ageing!
GETTING OUT INTO NATURE
There is incredible healing power in nature when it comes to stress, inflammation and overall wellbeing. That’s why I spend plenty of time in nature every week.
This is an easy habit for those of us who live in sunny Queensland. But if you’re in a colder or less predictable climate, you still want to get outdoors at least a few times a week. To make it even easier, you can combine it with other healthy habits such as walking or spending time with your friends.
As a yoga & meditation teacher, it’s no surprise that I’m a big fan of meditation! The research into regular mindfulness and meditation continues to show us how it can benefit not only your mental health, but also your physical wellbeing too. Studies show that meditation also plays an important role in healthy ageing.
If you’ve never tried meditation before, start small. Many people prefer the use of guided meditations – they tell you what to focus on so you feel less scattered and monkey-minded!
Diet and lifestyle are the biggest players when it comes to anti-ageing. But sometimes, we need a little helping hand to rebalance, restore and refresh. That’s where supplements can be a useful addition.
NOT ALL ANTI-AGEING SUPPLEMENTS ARE CREATED EQUAL!
If you’re looking to add one or more supplements to your regime, you want to ensure that they are high quality AND they have ingredients that have effective anti-ageing properties.
Honestly, when I looked for the type of supplement I wanted, my options were limited. That’s why I’ve formulated my own innovative supplement designed to support healthy ageing – and I’m so excited to share it with you! Learn more about Energy Glow NR here.
