Your numerical age and biological age are not one in the same. Your numerical age is the number of orbits around the Sun since your date of birth, while your biological age is in relation to the length of the Telomeres in your cells.
What is most feared about growing old isn't your numerical age getting higher but stereotypes associated with age.
Telomeres are what protect the structure of your chromosomes and telomerase is the enzyme which keeps telomeres from shortening (wearing down). Healthy cells are continually renewing in your immune system, digestive, bone, skin, hair, heart, lungs and brain. For these tissues to stay healthy, cells need to renew and be replaced from stem cells, when cells stop renewing tissues start to age and function poorly.
When the cells telomeres eventually become too short, signals are sent to stop the renewing process. Once the renewing process for a cell has stopped it begins to function and communicate poorly with other cells and cause pro-inflammatory reactions throughout the body.
Maintaining the length of your telomeres is vital to your health.
Anti-inflammatory nutrition, High Intensity Training, mindfulness, controlled breathing, natural surroundings, presence of love and acts of kindness all contribute to lengthening your telomeres, slowing, stopping and even reversing aging at a cellular level.
How you feel in relation to your age is the measure of vitality and having a healthy belief about age and recognizing stereotypes by having an optimistic outlook has a direct and real affect on the length (age) of your telomeres.

Memiliki p'harapan adalah sesuatu yg b'beda dr pada m'jadi optimis.. Mereka yg optimis akan b'pikir segala sesuatu m'jadi lbh baik: Cuaca, ekonomi, nilai sekolah, keuangan dan lainnya. Namun p'harapan bukanlah optimis yg buta, tetapi didasarkan dlm kesetiaan Allah dan janji yg sdh Dia berikan di waktu lalu.
P'harapan percaya bahwa Allah akan menepati apa yg sdh Dia ucapkan karena Dia adalah setia dan benar.
Allah telah buktikan bahwa Dia dapat dipercaya, dan Dia tdk pernah menunda. Kesetiaan n kebenaran -Nya adalah fondasi pengharapan kita.. #hopes#optimism#faithful#believe#promise
This made me laugh this morning! 😂 Jim Rohn once said, "Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines, practiced daily." Some days are harder than others for us entrepreneurs!! You've got to start every day with the intention that today will be awesome, no matter what happened yesterday. Every day is a fresh start. Focus on today, and crush it!! 👊
What’s inspired you lately?
#Awe is a #powerful — even #awesome , you might say — #human#emotion . And a handful of recent studies have found a link between experiencing a sense of awe — that feeling you get when you look up at a starry sky or out across a wide open valley — with feeling less #stressed and more #satisfied .
People who've recently had an awe-inspiring #experience are also more likely to say they feel more #curious about the #world around them and to act more #generously toward others.
